Best Video Games of 2017-2018

Since Htoutlaws2012 made a list of the worst games from these years. Time for an opposite version. These are the best games from these years. Feel free to add any games i missed on the list.

The Top Ten

1 Red Dead Redemption 2

Incredible game! The story is deep, complex and so interesting. All characters are well developed. Also, the attention to detail is simply phenomenal! There is always something going on in the world around you, so many possibilities and things to do. This is probably the best game I have ever played. - RogerMcBaloney

This game is fun, I remember preordering it and playing it when it came out - trains45

This is a masterpiece put it on a museum or something

Gameplay feels similar to the one we find in Grand Theft Auto V, but the shooting feels way better. Characters are charming and the story is great. An even better sequel to one of the best games of all time.

2 Spider-Man

Should 100% be number 1! Ridiculous.

As much as I love Marvel's Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2 is far better. - RogerMcBaloney

Amazing game. Great story and likeable characters. A great exclusive. I'm planning to review this by the end of the year. But yeah after Insomniac made Spyro and Ratchet & Clank. They teamed up with Marvel to this game. This might be the best superhero game other than the Batman Arkham series. - B1ueNew

It's hella addicting. One of the best "PlayStation" exclusives till date. - TriggerTrashKid

This is an amazing game. No arguments

3 God of War

This is a game that has the best story, mixed with great gameplay, it should be number 1

All these racks give me boner

This is way better than Spidey and Red dead. - HeavyRaiden

The game of the year

4 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This is a good smash game - trains45

Everyone is here! Nintendo fans don't see this or Odyssey or Breath of the Wild at number 1. *TRIGGERED* yeh sorry Nintendo fans, but while those are good games. I just find games like RDR2 and Spiderman to be better in terms of originality and plot. Anyway to Smash ultimate. This is definitely going to be a great game. I love the Smash bros games and this is most likely going to be great. The final direct was so good! I am definitely looking forward to getting this when I get the Nintendo switch. So far this is my most wanted game for when I get my switch. I can't wait to play as pretty much everyone and espically the newcomers like Piranha, Simon Belmont, King K Rool, Ridley, Etc! Awesome looking so far. - B1ueNew

ADD STEVE - FallenBlaze

So many characters! I was super excited for this game and being able to play as chrom, ridley, King K. Rool, inklings, and every other new comer. The story mode is awesome and we still got the Dlc characters to go!

5 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Forget these two years... This is one of the best games ever

This game is really fun game, the exploring makes is really fun - trains45

Smash Bros. Ultimate kinda sucks. I played it and hated it, and I liked all other smash games, this game is better

This is better than Fortnite

6 Fortnite

Fortnite is one of the coolest game I've ever played

This is the worst. Only a few shall play it and not most people in existence.

Best battle royale game ever

Ok I know It's overrated sure and that many people on the site hate this game and that it has some flaws but it's still a great game in my opinion. I just find it to be so creative (Other than the BR idea of PUBG.) Fortnite added building and new items like Launch Pads and etc. The Save the World mode is good too but gets way too boring honestly. Oh and Battle Royale is free! I just really like this game. - B1ueNew

7 Injustice 2

Should be in the top 5. - RadioHead03

Sorry nintendo fans. But this is my number one spot. I know many won't agree with me putting this at number 1. But I absolutely love this game! I think it's The best licensed game I ever played. Pretty much almost everything about this game is good. It has a great roster, A good story to it with likeable characters. Either way. One of my personal favorite games. - B1ueNew

This is the best Superhero game ever after Batman Arkham Series...Because when there is no justice, that's what you call Injustice...Love DC... - lm10sd10

I can understand this, having Hell-boy, TMNT, and others - LucarioLov3

8 Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Crash: N-Sane Trilogy's a better remaster in my opinion. - Extractinator04

This game has beautiful graphics, and it totally makes up for that Skylanders crap we got in 2011. - Drawbox

This deserves to be higher than that garbage Fortnite!

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL! - kanetheundertaker25

9 Cuphead

My brother and I sit down and play this game for hours trying to beat all of the bosses.

I love this game. I have never had a game challenge me so much; but still have that enjoyment to the point that you want to beat them in different ways like using a different weapon or only use the standard shot for the hole game. A must play to be sure.

Best game I ever played

It's overrated as hell since it's a hard game. - XtheXlmao

10 Horizon Zero Dawn

I saw my older cousin play this and it looks AMAZING. - IceFoxPlayz

Are you crazy, this is super cool, and this one should have won the GOTY 2017 instead of BOTW. Oh God save me from the Nintendo fanbase. - TriggerTrashKid

The Contenders

11 Super Mario Odyssey

Should be number 2, number 1 being Spiderman PS4.

The first time I played this game, it felt average to me.
But the second time I went through it, I LOVED the game. This is one of my favorite Mario games of all time, but I still like Galaxy more. - Drawbox

Should be top 3 - LucarioLov3

It looks like a cool game, I have played a bit off it on the nintendo switch demo. It was good but insanely overrated. To me it feels like Super Mario Galaxy 3 but without a Galaxy. Instead a mix of Super Mario Galaxy and 3D World. But either way it does seem like a good game. - B1ueNew

12 Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

I love this game

Is it a remake, seems like. - TriggerTrashKid

Murdering Nazis, need to say more? - Not_A_Weeaboo

This one looks good. I'm planning to play it sometime soon. - B1ueNew

13 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

This game is fun one of the first games I got on ps4 - trains45

The lovable bandicoot is back with updated graphics, better gameplay, and I should say, it's N.Sane. - TriggerTrashKid

Just got the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy on my PS3. I love it! And if this is a remake of the original trilogy, it must N. Sanely good. - Drawbox

My favorite game series! The great trilogy all in one disc. A lot of you know Crash Bandicoot: Warped is my all-time favorite game and that I really like the other 2 in the main trilogy. So this game just made the whole trilogy better! It Added New levels, Improved graphics and to play as Coco Bandicoot. What a great game. definitely a must play to gamer who want a challenging 3D platformer. - B1ueNew

14 Assassin's Creed Origins

Improved and great gameplay, nice story, great stealth combat, and much more. I seriously recommend this to anyone who likes Assassin's Creed and also who want very nice gameplay. - TriggerTrashKid

15 Far Cry 5

Deserves more recognition, but it isn't Excellent. - TriggerTrashKid

Loved it - Silence4101

16 Forza Horizon 4

Should be in the top 10. - RadioHead03

Best racer - HaloFanboy

Best car game of the decade. Take that, HaloFanboy(user)! - TriggerTrashKid


17 Just Cause 4

Someone save me from the Tornado... - TriggerTrashKid

20 A Way Out

A heartbreaking tale, and amazing gameplay to go with it. What more can I say?

AMAZING! - TriggerTrashKid

I haven't played the game but watched Jacksepticeye

21 Sonic Mania Plus

We really need more people in Sega like the devs of this one. - TriggerTrashKid

22 Kirby Star Allies

Kirby's good. I like what I have seen from this game so far. Yeah I know many find the series overrated and too easy. But I like this game so far. My store has a demo of this and a few other switch games. And I enjoyed this when I played it. The friendship option is pretty good. A new game changing style to the series. Though it does seem too easy. - B1ueNew

Wanna play this game - LucarioLov3

I swear the DLC is the best part about this game. So much nostalgia. - Drawbox

23 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Why is fartnite higher?!?!?!

Great game

24 Assassin's Creed Odyssey

I am playing this game right now, and I can't stop playing sometimes,
good job Ubisoft!

Best assassins creed in the series

Just Vote... - TriggerTrashKid

25 Call of Duty: WWII

This game was fun. plus does it really rip off battlefield 1? Battlefield is now straight up ripping this off by adding vehicles!

I know many people turned there faces away from this because of the title Call Of Duty, but it's great if you want to be a soldier in World War II. - TriggerTrashKid

26 Celeste

Literally such a good game the platforming is so great the constant addition of new mechanics each chapter keeping the level design from being bland. I can honestly say this game had my attention the whole time.

Up this game.

Can't believe this wasn't on the list. It's honestly one the best 2-D platformers I've played. - Drawbox

27 Bendy and the Ink Machine

This game should be at least in the top 15! WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL!? - Batim6BendyDemon

This game should definitely be a lot higher! At least in the top ten!

Yeah yeah yeah we get it you don't like the game...well I do while it's not the best and the fandom is getting out of control. The graphics are still really well done and I have no problem with the storyline. But the characters should have a bit more backstory and personality I'm hopeful that the new BATIM game is good

This game is cancer the fandom is AIDS

She makes good cookies

My left nut is sore from thinking about her and wanking to much

I love playing Granny because I love horror games and thing and my top fave horror game (other than maybe FNAF #MANGLE #FOXY #FNAF) this is the best.

Bruh she so hot. do you know how many times I've wanked to her.
