I played a lot of video games this year, and I have had a lot of fun! We are so spoiled these days. There is a good/great game coming out every week it seems. Here are my top five games in in reverse order:
I have always witnessed the Monster Hunter phenomenon from the outside. It has always been on platforms that I don’t have. This year Capcom let us all play! And it is a cool grind. The only thing holding this game back for me is that none of my friends play, so I don’t get to experience the co-op, but from what I have played, I can easily see why Monster Hunter: World has set the world on fire.
While season two of Telltale’s Batman series started last year, it ended this year, and what an ending it was. I loved it, and I am getting upset writing this knowing that there will not be a season 3. Any game that lets you play as not only Batman, but also as Bruce Wayne is something not to be missed. Since Telltale’s demise this game has become hard to find, but you should still seek it out anyway.
PUBG finally went 1.0 this year, and while Fortnite has taken over the Battle Royal world, I enjoy the minute to minute tension of PUBG more. I know it is buggy for a ‘released’ game, but it is fun, and that is all that matters.
2: Hitman 2
I just got Hitman 2, so I haven’t posted a review for it yet, but it is ‘just’ more Hitman. Which is great because I LOVE Hitman. Bigger, better and more murderous sandboxes to take out ‘bad’ guys in. Crazier ways to try and kill people. It is all so good, and I would play this game forever if they can keep making it.
Everything about Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost perfect. My main complaint is that just that there is so much of it. A complaint that there is too much game is not a real complaint. If you can play Red Dead Redemption 2, you should. If you can’t, you should find a way to play it. Unless you are too young that is. In which case play it in a few years.
I hope you had as much fun playing games this year as I did. Also, Forza Horizon 4 came out this year. So, I know I limit myself to five games, but every Forza Horizon game should be played, and this year was no different, so it gets a very honorable mention. Let’s hope that 2019 year will be as good for games as the last year was.
