    WC's Fave Five Video Games of 2018!!



    Oh boy, we've got some catching up to do, huh?

    Aside from roughly a decade of years in between this and our existing Fave Fives to attend to, I figured I'd celebrate having a little free time by getting us back in the swing with a look at last year's elite video game contenders. It was a wild one, with Fortnite (not eligible for this list) ruling the world and GAMERS RISE UP getting major pissy about Bethesda and Blizzard doing some less-than-great things. In between all that weirdness though, a lot of great games got released and it's your job to sort out the best ones. Send me your list of best 2018 video games via PM by, let's say, Sunday, May 12th at 11:59 PM EST.

    For those out of the loop and just a refresher, we are going with first time releases by North American release date. We exist in a world of a lot of ports and remasters, but that kind of stuff is no bueno. A ground-up remake, something like this year's Spyro: Reignited Trilogy, is eligible on the other hand. Please do a little research on your list and make sure each game on it was released for the first time in 2018, and wasn't a three year old game just getting a Switch release that year. I recommend a quick glance at the Wiki page for the game in question.

    Anyway, here you go, happy trails.

    have you not heard the old saying "if it hasnt released on switch, has it really released?". i dont play newly released games frequently anymore tbh. but ill see if i can come up with something.

    question: if a game goes through an early access program, does it count while it's in early access or when it's officially released?

    My concience: "No one will vote for Fallout 76"
    Me: "I know they won't. Because I don't know what I'll do if they do!"

    A very very strong year for video games. I will struggle to find my fave five.

    Dunno... I feel like I've sent in one of the most unique lists. One of the five could possibly get some votes, but the others... I wouldn't be surprise if they go into the countdown only because of me.

    my list is pretty half-assed since i dont play new games like i watch new movies or tv shows, especially since the price in canada tends to lean over 80$ for a brand new triple a game. its a pretty huge investment. but the top 2 games on there ive sunk in a ton of hrs and i really enjoyed.

    I had a mix of games I felt were kind of gonna be ones a lot of people vote for, and ones that I wanted to see get love at least if it's just from one or two people.

    Definitely a pretty good year for games, especially on the Switch.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I might be the only one who voted for my #1, although anyone who knows me would know exactly what it is.

    Yeah when they were broken they just stayed that way.

    I had to mail my memory card to Sony to fix a Spyro glitch back in the day.

    Shouldn't you be applying this to his original statement and not my response to it?

    I've already sent my list, but I still wanted to ask, what exactly counts as a "ground-up" remake...

    Werent you born in 98?

    Even if that is true. Thats one. Today..almost every game is rushed out without being tested properly(. They ve yanked games off the shelf for being broken). The game industry today is garbage compared to pre mid 2000s.

    theres really no comparison.

    id say something like the ffvii thats in the works. its not just a polish, they're completely redoing the game. correct me if im wrong but games like firered/leafgreen or soulsilver/heartgold from the pokemon series may also count as remakes? at least thats how theyre marketed.

    damn. yall really gonna start an argument about games then & now off a lighthearted comment about grim's love for classics (of which there was no malicious intent).

    Resident Evil 2 (2019) would be along those lines, in that it's a new game created from scratch incorporating the fundamentals of the original in a contemporary way. Then you have The Spyro HD remake, Crash Bandicoot and every rehash of FF7, FF9, FFX, FFXII and Skryim. Those don't count because mostly they are just the old game with a glossy coat of HD paint and better sound.
