My Top 5 Games of 2018

Last year I said 2017 was one of the best years for video games in a long time. 2018 managed to 1-up last year being one of my favorite years of video games of all time. I just wish I had more time to play all of these great games. A few shoutouts for games I put a ton of time/love into this year that didn’t make the cut include Madden NFL 19, FIFA 19, The Golf Club 2019, and Overcooked 2.

5. NBA 2K19

4. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

3. God of War

2. Red Dead Redemption 2

1. Marvel’s Spider-Man


I would have never imagined that my Game of the Year for 2018 would have been Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4. I’m not a huge fan of the developer Insomniac’s previous work and it was released in the same calendar year as Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War (2018), and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. And yet there is no game I had more fun with or wanted to come back and play more than Marvel’s Spider-Man. It’s the first game I got a platinum trophy in, and is one that has kept me thinking about it far after the credits rolled. What a brilliant, beautiful game it turned out to be.
