As promised, here is the official countdown for what Kosta and I consider 2018's best games, not as dictated by review scores, but by a collaborative personal 'Best Of' for the year.
We both presented our best 10 (or more) games to one another, and chipped away at a top 20, then came to consensus on the 10 best of those 20 in order from 10th to first, with the aim to deliver a day by day reveal for the top 10, beginning with, well... . So here's today's reveal as the first game in our 10 Best Games of 2018, which we specifically chose to kick off today on January 1st, 2019.
You might not agree with this list, but that's a good thing. And we want to hear from you. Tell us why you agree or disagree. Tell us what your list would be, and while today's entry does fit within the Triple-A camp, this list won't just be a list of big-budget titles from Triple-A developers. We pained over the whole thing for a while to ensure an eclectic and cohesive list of games that truly touched us in 2018. Moreover, once we reach the coveted Number One spot, we'll be following up with an Honourable Mentions feature post as well, which will hopefully keep you glued to the site for the next little while.
