David Bakker’s Top 10 Of 2018

2018 has been a solid year for videogames, including some great ports (looking at you Diablo III, Gone Home, Hollow Knight and more), strong sequels to old franchises, and exciting new indies. However, although many of these titles pushed to the limits of the industry (Red Dead Redemption 2 with its attention to detail and the incredible mechanics of Marvel’s Spider-Man) none of them were as well-made the best games of last year — things like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Persona 5 and Doki Doki Literature Club, which all were fierce in their own way. So, even though 2018 has been a softer year, there have still been great titles.

We Happy Few Review

Sunshine Over Joy

HIGH Wellington Wells is full of appealing backstory

LOW The technical issues and poorly-designed gameplay

WTF The Wellies get off by stinging each other with electric batons while wearing a rubber suit.

Elo Hell Preview

The title of this game, Elo Hell (google it) describes its current Early Access state accurately, and I’m not sure that there’s any indication pointing towards future progress. It’s both a new MOBA called Echo Star and a story-driven adventure about the rise of Echo Star and its professional players. There’s not much more to it in this early build, and with so little working content, Elo Hell can barely be called a game at this point.
