God of War was my biggest DISAPPOINTMENT of 2018....all the changes they made did not sit we'll for me. I thought the combat was boring and cumbersome and I hated the levels with the flying bosses. I put about 7 hours into it and traded it in.

RDR 2 sounds like a complete chore to play...I will pass.

Axiom Verge is good but I think a bit overrated in my book

I liked Spiderman but it got a bit repetitive as the game went on. Killer main story though!

So for me there is only one choice for game of the year...

Octopath Traveller for the Switch! Probably the best RPG I have played in years.

Other notable games for me:

COD Black Ops 4 (PS4)
Omega Strike (PS4)
Civilization VI (Switch)

Another year is just about in the books. I hope everybody has a wonderful holiday and a happy new year!

Axiom Verge and Rocket League, two excellent games, are both on sale for $10 right now on the Nintendo store:

Best use of $20 you ever saw!

roundabout on the xbox 1 is old school arcade fun. probably the best game I have played this year just think of crazy taxi in a limo but it is revolving all of the time.
Dud, Elder scrolls Somerset. I think MMOs are trash and ruin the concept of the games they come from. It looks like elder scrolls and plays like borderlands. Not a good combination.

Being the RPG fan that I am, I have to give it to Dragon Quest XI. I’m not finished with it yet but I’ve been loving every second of it so far.

Super Smash Ultimate is my game of the year.

Also, I hate MMO's but love Elder Scrolls Online. Summerset was a great expansion to the game!

Axiom Verge is the easy choice for me if it counts for this year. I raved about it on this message board (and I believe that coaxed the Critic to review it since it had just landed on physical media on the Switch :)) Second place is Celeste.

I bought this game when it went on sale for $35. I can't wait to dive into it!
