Red Dead Redemption 2 cast a huge shadow for 2018. One of the most anticipated video games ever to change the release dates of competing games and the dominant conversations. This is the type of project that sucked all the air in the room.
This is not to say that the rest of 2018 was forgettable. Far from this, the year was one of the strongest, the continuation and renewal of the old standbys prevailed. This is the moment in the generation of consoles, when the studios have mastered the hardware and expand the limits of their capabilities. Here are my top 10 games for 2018:
one. Red Dead Redemption 2: Rockstar Games did not release the game for five years, so the hype around this project was palpable. This chapter of the Wild West saga is a prequel that follows the gang of van der Linde and shows players a magnificent vision of the era. It involves characters from the original game, including John Marston, but basically the campaign follows the exploits of Arthur Morgan, the right man of the leader.
Red Dead Redemption 2 sets the bar for graphics when Rockstar creates a stunningly realistic world. Customization pops out of the screen with detailed realism that requires study. Combine this with an epic tale about the fading world of the Wild West, and this sequel is the most memorable game of the year.
2 Monster hunter world: Capcom has always had trouble translating the magic of a popular TV show from Japan to an American audience. With this recording in the series, the team finally gets it right. The developers have optimized the more burdensome and burdensome aspects of the game so that players can focus on skillful ways to kill huge creatures in a complex fantasy ecosystem.
3 god of War: Fans remember Kratos as a violent monster who destroyed the Greek gods. This update follows the Ghost of Sparta in the next chapter of his life. He is a father, raising a son named Atreus, and he found life in a world dominated by the Scandinavian gods. Santa Monica Studios closely intertwines gameplay and storytelling through combat and level design to create a compelling campaign, combined with child-rearing themes.
four. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: The last few entries of this blockbuster franchise were disappointing, but Treyarch turned the series over with this sequel. In fact, the team ended up with a single campaign in favor of a reliable set of multiplayer modes. This highlights Blackout, which is an enhanced version of the Battle Royale format that has become dominant in online gaming. Think of it as Fortnite with fast and exciting gameplay you can expect from Call of Duty,
five. Assassin & # 39; s Creed Odyssey: Ubisoft's first attempt to update its flagship series was good, but flawed. Fortunately, this sequel finally gives the correct formula. Odyssey picks up players to ancient Greece, where they play the role of Cassandra or Alexios, two Spartan children with a curious legacy. Players must unravel the mystery behind the family history and also save the Greek world using a combat system that is more sophisticated and fun than playing of origin,
6 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: More is really better with the last sequel to the favorite fighting game franchise. With this list of 74 characters played and 103 stages, this offer gives fans more of what they love. An amazing addition is the solo campaign World of Light, which has the same depth as most role-playing games. Add all the other modes and online games, and many video game fans will be able to please many.
7 Spiderman: After several years of trying to make perfect Spiderman In the game, Insomniac performs the feat with aplomb. The developer is a master at making locomotion — the process of moving from point A to point B fascinating — and they nail it with the help of Spider-Man's web. The story, which focuses on Peter Parker in his youth, also gives players a new look at everyone's favorite website.
eight. The Chronicles of Valkyrie 4: The iconic classic strategy game of 2008 finally got a legitimate sequel. Sega returns step-by-step combat mechanics, which made the original exciting game fascinating, adding new elements, such as weather mechanics and a class of grenadiers. The Chronicles of Valkyrie 4The story follows Squad E, which plays a key role in the Second European War. Inspired by the Russian front of World War II, this strategic game based on the fantasy world echoes some of the major themes of this conflict.
9. Pokemon: Let's go, Pikachu! and Pokemon: Come on, Eve!: Successfully Pokemon goThe game Freak was supposed to find a way to attract new wave of fans in the main series of games. The solution was a radical update on how players catch pocket monsters. This change coincided with the first major recording of the series on the Nintendo Switch. The result is a game that allows beginners and fans of veterans to penetrate deeper into the world of Pokemon.
ten. Octopat traveler: Music does a lot for video games. It evokes memories. He stays with the players long after the game ends. With one of the best soundtracks in a long time and graphics that dates back to the golden age of Japanese role-playing games, this unusual name gives fans a heavy dose of nostalgia, and also offers new techniques of mechanics and narration. – San Jose Mercury News / Tribune News Service
