2018 has been a phenomenal year for games. No matter your preference in genre, format or experience, there’s been a stand-out game to suit you. Here are the 30 games that have stood out most to us this year.
1Read Dead Redemption 2
“The years spent shaping Red Dead Redemption 2 into what it is has been worth it. Rockstar hasn’t just created a video game; it has created as close to a living, breathing digital world as can be. It’s not so much something that you play, it’s something that you visit and experience. Something you willingly get lost in. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the result of years of blood, sweat and tears. And it shows, making getting yourself absorbed in it feel all the more special. This is the new benchmark by which open world games will be measured, but none will be meeting its heady heights anytime soon.”
