Red Dead Redemption 2 cast a huge shadow during 2018. One of the most anticipated video games ever shifted the dates of the transition to rival games and dominated the conversation. It's a kind of project that draws the whole air into the room.
That does not mean that the rest of 2018 was forgotten. Far from that, the year was one of the stronger, dominated by sequels and renewed old stands. This is the point in the console generation when the studios have mastered the hardware and pushed the limits of what they can offer. Here are my best 10 matches for 2018:
1. Red Dead Redemption 2: Rockstar Games has not announced a game for five years, so the excitement behind this project was apparent. This chapter of the Wild West Saga is overcrowded to follow the Van der Lines gang and take the players into a lush vision of age. It contains characters from the original game, including John Marston, but the campaign closely follows the exploits of Arthur Morgan, the right hand of the leader.
Red Dead Redemption 2 sets a Rockstar graphics bar making the world astonishingly realistic. The setting turns off the screen with detailed realism that begs to be explored. Combine this with an epic story about the futile world of the Wild West and this sequel is the most memorable game of the year.
2. Monster Hunter world: Capcom is always having trouble translating the magic of the popular series from Japan to the American audience. With this entry into the series, the team finally gets the right. Developers direct a more challenging and difficult aspect of the game so that players can concentrate on skillful ways that can kill enormous creatures in a complex fantastic ecosystem.
3. God of War: The pilgrims remember Kratos as a troubling monster who took down the Greek gods. This rework follows Sparta's Spirit in the next chapter of his life. He is the father raising a son named Atreus and he found life in a world dominated by the Nordic gods. The Santa Monica study walks through the game and story firmly together through combat and design level to create a vast campaign that is united with parenting topics.
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: The last few records for these blockbuster franchises were disappointing, but Treyarch turned the series around this sequel. The team, in essence, withdrew the campaign with one player in favor of a robust set of multiplayer modes. It is emphasized by Blackout, which is a refined version of the format of the battle king, who came to dominate online games. Think of it like that Fortnite with a fast and addictive game from which you would expect Call on duty.
5. Odyssey of Assassin's Creed: Ubisoft's first attempt to refresh its leading series was good, but flawed. Fortunately, this sequel finally gets the formula right. Odyssey brings players to ancient Greece, where they take on the role of Kassandra or Alexius, two Spartan children with a curious heritage. Players must solve the mystery behind familial history, as well as to save the Greek world using a combat system that is more refined and fun to play compared to Origin.
6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: The bigger is really better with the latest addition to the desired franchise franchise game. With a list of 74 featured characters and 103 stages, this offer gives fans more than what they want. A surprising addition is the "Light of the Light" campaign that has as much depth as playing role games. Throw in all other modes and online play and there's plenty to keep fans of the video game through many franchisees happy.
7. A spider man: After a few years trying to make it perfect A spider man game, Insomniac pulls out the applause. The developer is the master in the creation of a locomotive – the process of getting a party from point A to point B – and pinching it with a spider-man. The story that focuses on Peter Parker as a young adult also gives players a new perspective on the favorite web description of everyone.
8. Chronicles of Valkiria 4: The classic classic classic game from 2008 has finally got a legitimate continuation. Sega restores boring rotating mechanics and makes the original addictive fun while adding new elements, such as meteorological techniques and the class of grenadiers. Chronicles of Valkiria 4The narrative follows the E unit, which plays a key role in the Second European War. Inspired by the Russian front of the Second World War, this strategic game based on the fantasy world reflects some of the major topics of that conflict.
9. Pokémon: Let's go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's go, Eve!: With the success of Pokemon Go, Game Freak had to find a way to bring new wave fans into the main series of games. The solution was a dramatic update on how players catch pocket monsters. That change coincided with the first major entry of the Nintendo Switch series. The result is a game that brings newcomers and fans of veterans deeper into the world of Pokémon.
10. Octopathic traveler: Music does a lot about video games. It evokes the memories. It is held with players long after the game is over. With one of the best soundtracks in a long time and with graphics that repeats itself in the golden age of Japanese games for roles, this unusual title gives fans a great deal of nostalgia, and also offers new mechanics and tricks to tell stories. – San Jose Mercury News / Tribune News Service
