Not so long ago died down relatively fresh, but already quite iconic for the gaming industry event – The Game Awards 2018. The ceremony of awarding the best games of the year became a step closer to cult status, going at a consistently high level. 2018 was abundant in game releases. We bring you the biggest and best games of 2018.
What were the most high-profile announcements and failures of 2018? You had to hold the keyboards and gamepads dozens of hours having fun learning new mechanics and honing skill, and left to memory only the imprint of bitter disappointments and hopes for the best.
God of War
So, game of the year wasn’t expected, but certainly deserved to become God of War.
God of War long before the nomination was received universal acclaim from critics. Creations Santa Monica Studio praised the story, level design and graphics. Especially the players like the characters and combat system. The game received the highest scores from many reviewers, which makes it the best in the series God of War and also the third best game for PS4 on Metacritic. The game sold 5 million copies in just the first month. To the word God of War received two awards at The Game Awards 2018 – for best direction and best adventure game.
Red Dead Redemption 2
The game that I love and hate at the same time – Red Dead Redemption 2 put on a real winning streak at the ceremony, collected the largest expected number of awards.
The brainchild of Rockstar Games won the statuette for best story, soundtrack and audio design. The actor who plays the main character Arthur Morgan Roger Clark received the statuette for best acting. It is worth noting that Red Dead Redemption 2 has received universal acclaim from critics, according to review on Metacritic. The game has a top score on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the unit. This is definitely the most anticipated game of 2018, and millions of gamers who have chosen the main platform PC, now biting his elbows in anticipation of the announcement of the game on their platform.
A game that constantly raises the network a lot of discussions, a game that destroys a marriage in the UK and attaches to monitors and keyboards more than 200 million players worldwide is Fortnite. This year, the creation of Epic Games received the award for the best developing project.
It was too expected reward. Of course the authors Fortnite hardly work on his brainchild, and constantly adding new content. At the ceremony was announced for season 7 and the new mode where players can build their own island, not limiting their imagination for anything. Also, the game took the award for best multiplayer, no less expected than the first statue.
Monster Hunter: World
That was a real surprise, it is getting Monster Hunter: World figurines for the best RPG of the year. Despite such a surprise to the gamers a result, it is worth noting that evaluation aggregator Metacritic is quite high (90 out of 100 points).
The main difference from previous games is the ability to navigate through the world of the game freely, with no loading screens between locations. It supports co-op mode co-op play up to four players, and players from Japan and Western countries can play together with each other.
Forza Horizon 4
Best sports game in 2018 without objection is Forza Horizon 4. For the creation of Playground Games have received the award at the ceremony, The Game Awards 2018. Recall that the release of the game took place on 2 October 2018.
One of the main features of Forza Horizon 4 is the dynamic change of the seasons, which also reflects the changing time of day and weather conditions that will directly affect gameplay to drive a car in winter, summer, autumn and spring, and the gameplay will also affect traction, visibility behind the wheel as well as the type of competitions such as off-road, circuit racing and drift. Players are able to collect more than 450 cars and customize them to your taste, as well as drivers.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
The best fighting game of 2018 was Dragon Ball FighterZ.
The creation of Arc System Works is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. For the first week after release the game has sold over two million copies. Thus the game rasprodala the fastest in the series. Note that previously, the game was nominated in three categories for the Golden Joystick Awards, where she, however, did not receive any awards.
But let’s back up a few awards and remember the games that made a lot of noise in 2018.
The most controversial release of the year certainly can be called Fallout 76. The game is poised over the victory in the nomination the failure of the year. It seems everything that could go wrong when you start Fallout 76 – went wrong.
To tell about the incredible number of bugs when the game starts it makes no sense. In this network is legendary. Low quality textures here and there, constant crashes and FPS drops indicate that the developers do not fully work on the project. To this crude product from Bethesda, and then to find out that you can’t get your money back. Unsurprisingly, gamers began to lose nerves. Some even carried the Windows of shops in righteous anger, I think you’ve seen these videos online. And if the bugs still trouble could forgive, we all know what is common in Bethesda games, the story of a collector’s edition of Fallout 76 many for whom was the last straw.
However, despite all the hardships that befell the release of Fallout 76 – many liked it. And there are indeed a number of interesting game mechanics that cannot fail to fascinate, and the construction and development of its own base made hostage to the author for dozens of hours.
2018 has been a large number of high-profile releases, which, unfortunately, is not enough space in this list. All those interested in the industry, have not paid attention to such games as Detroit: Become Human, Far Cry 5, Spider-Man, Shadow of the Tomb Rider, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, State of Decay 2, Just Couse 4 and many more AAA titles. But if you for some reason have not played in at least one of the above, we get kind of jealous. You can feel the incredible spectrum of emotions that give these games.
Next year we expect new and great releases. Some of them we’ve been waiting quite a long time, a large part still to be announced. However, each of us knows how to kill the time while waiting for new titles, because the nose is a great sale on Steam, which starts December 21. We are sure that your list of desired has already found a warm shelter a few toys that are just waiting to migrate into your library.
