2018 was an absolute treat for gaming enthusiasts. A year full of new releases, as well as games that had been long awaited. 

From exploring the stunning  American countryside on your horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, to swinging by the skyscrapers of Manhattan as Spider-Man, these are the games that have paved their way in to gaming history. 

Here, are the best games released in 2018:

God of War

 

The game is the eighth installment in the God of War series and it is officially the best game of 2018 after winning the Game of the Year award.

 

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

 

Another great installment in another great franchise, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey earned praises from both fans and critics.

 

A Way Out

 

An absolute treat to play if you have a partner to help you break through a prison together and survive whatever drama follows you in this co-op game.

 

Red Dead Redemption 2

 

Garnering almost a perfect score on every review, Red Dead Redemption 2 definitely was not only one of the best games released this year, but was one of the best this decade. 

 

Detroit: Become Human

A sci-fi game where your character survives or dies based on the decisions you make as an android.

 

Far Cry 5

 

Keeping up with great games like Far Cry 3 and 4, the fifth installment didn’t live up to be better than them, but certainly was a great game with its picturesque scenery and strong story-line. 

 

Spider-Man

 

A game that was long overdue, we could finally play a Spider-Man game with smooth web swings, explosive beat downs and a wide range of super-villains to battle with. 

 

It goes without saying that if you still haven’t played any of these, it’s highly suggested you get on it because they’re undoubtedly worth your time.
