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.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Review

The Tourist Trap

HIGH  The moment-to-moment exhilaration of fighting a gigantic monster can still feel amazing.

WTF The localization’s fourth-wall-bending goofiness is frequently obnoxious, complete with a literal “git gud” at one point.
