The Top Ten

1 Fortnite

Come on, though. This game is WAY to overrated. I get it, it's kinda fun. But, why is it as successful as it is? I don't get it. It's simply another (Free) Shooter game out there! - RandomThings

Even it's a 2017 game, it's overrated (but still good). - MrCoolC

Not even 2018 - B1ueNew

2 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

So terrible, why do people buy this trash - B1ueNew

3 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

I love Super Smash Bros. but even I'd agree this fanbase is rabid and difficult to approach. I'm tired of seeing fans clamor onto this game like it's the Gaming equivalent of Jesus Christ and prematurely stating it's the best game of 2018, even when its not released. This year has been great for gaming overall, with releases like God of War, Spider-Man, Far Cry 5, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Monster Hunter: World and Fallout 76 being regarded in very high light.

Furthermore, there's the character speculation and expectations. Much of the fanbase are obsessed over Waluigi not being a playable character, to which I'm sick and tired of hearing over and over. I don't care about Waluigi in general, but then there's rumors and leaks to keep it as annoying as it always was. I also feel as if the leak speculation has gotten stale to the point I cannot be bothered to figure out who's in the game until official confirmation.

Overall, I am anticipating this game, and its going to be ...more - CrimsonShark

IT'S. NOT. EVEN. OUT. YET. I'm sorry, the idea of "hype" just completely infuriates me. If you are looking forward to something, fine. Calling something the "best game of 2018" when it's NOT EVEN OUT is asking for a jinx. Here are a few things that people were excited for that were hated upon release:
-Duke Nukem Forever (In development for an extremely long time, now hated after being finally released)
-Star Wars: The Last Jedi (This should not need an explanation-I liked it, but we're going off average reception)
-Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 (Oh, yeah. I went there.)
My point is, that via Murphy's Law, all the hype this game is getting will result in it being the next Atari E.T. or Superman 64. And despite that, this website will have declared it the second best game of 2018-thank goodness for that God of War game...

I'm honestly more hyped about Super Mario Party than this - darthvadern

So overrated it's here twice!, and it's not even out yet! - B1ueNew
