Have I mentioned how Insanely fun Octopath Traveler is? I feel like I haven't said that enough.

 

I'm having a hard time seeing how anything is gonna stack up to this and God of War this year. RDR2 and Spiderman better be on top of their game.

 

What's that I hear?

 

Sounds like it's HALFWAY THROUGH 2018 GOTY LISTING TIME!

 

2018 has been a bit of a snoozer compared to this time last year. I've played a lot of thoroughly mediocre Nintendo games  (Kirby Star Allies, Mario Tennis Aces, Detective Pikachu), a lot of ports or HD remasters that can't really count on a GOTY list (Bayonetta 2 Switch, DMC Trilogy, Dark Souls Remastered, Captain Toad), and a couple of games that... were fine? I guess? Ni no Kuni 2 and Far Cry 5 were... games that I played, but I didn't even remember that I'd done so until I looked through the last couple of pages of this thread.

 

I haven't put enough time into Octopath Traveler to talk about it yet, so I'm going to whittle it down to three really good games I've played this year: Detroit: Become David Cage, God of War, and Vampyr, with Vampyr being my 2018 GOTY FRONTRUNNER so far. Even if it is objectively the least-polished, Eurojank-iest of the three, I just found it so captivating and unique, and that's what I like in a video game.

 

As for the rest of the year, I've got high hopes for Spider-Man, RDR2 and Hitman 2. I guess there's that new Tomb Raider, too, and Just Cause 3 is coming but I think I'm going to wait for a sale on that one. Oh, and like fifty more remasters/reimaginings/remakes, too (Shenmue, Spyro, Yakuza 2, The World Ends With You, Pokemon LGP/E). I feel like I'm going to end up remembering 2018 as the year I finally played all the Resident Evil games rather than any of the year's actual new games :P
