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

I've finished it, what a ride it was. Amazing plot, amazing characters, amazing graphics, and the attention to detail is just phenomenal. It took me around 50 hours to complete. One of the best games I have ever played.

I have not played it yet but it looks truly amazing. Can't wait to play but I still haven't played the 1st. Either way this looks like an outstanding game with beautiful graphics. This one definitely seems worth the wait after 8 years. That's Almost a decade after. - B1ueNew

I played it, and I'm not even halfway into the story. I already think it's the best game I have ever played - venomouskillingmachine

Very good boy

2 Spider-Man

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

I might get this as if it as good as Batman Arkham, then I'm in for a treat. - iliekpiez

Yay! First list featured. - B1ueNew

This is almost as good as the Spectacular Spider-man T.V. Show. This game is absolutely fantastic.

3 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

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

I am hyped for this! It has Piranha Plant as a character! How cool is that? - Dollphin

This one does look good but I'm just more hyped about Yoshi's Crafted World and Luigi's Masion 3 for some reason - darthvadern

Not a lot of people (Including me) know Roger Wilco. He hasn't appeared in a game on a nintendo platform. - B1ueNew

4 God of War

I haven't played this one yet but it looks Beautifuly made! Sony is on a roll with their exclusives for their consoles. After a awesome comeback to a series. This is how you do it. With amazing graphics and gameplay. - B1ueNew

The best to the best of the best.

The story is beautiful: About a father and son roaming the land to spread their mothers ashes.
Gameplay: Fun combos, good mechanics and great teamwork with Atreus (Your son)
There are also multiple plot twists to keep you hooked
Side quests: Side quests also help you not only to get you rewards but makes you Bond with your son even more.
Secret Boss Fight: THE MOST HARDEST BOSS EVER! I’d rather fight every bloodbourne Boss than fight Sigrun.

P.s if you don’t have this game and I spoiled it for you.. stop what your doing and go check it out. I recommend it.

5 Fortnite

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

This game looks pretty decent to me - Dollphin

I think people should stop hating on fortnite and try it for themselves. I think fortnite is still good

This is truly the best

6 Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

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

Murdering Nazis, need to say more? - Not_A_Weeaboo

7 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

This game gets a bit boring at times (please Don't throw your spoons and pitchforks at me nintendo fans) but it still has great gameplay. Either way would give it a 8/10 (don't throw your fire at me nintendo fans) honestly. - B1ueNew

This game is really beautiful! It's so great that you can literally explore anything in this game! - Dollphin

Zelda for the win, man! - LightningStrike

I change opinions constantly, bit this one will always be considered the best game ever to me. It’s mystical, magical, fun, adventurous, and feels like the best Zelda game i’ve Ever played. I can’t give it enough praise, you need to play it to understand it.

8 Super Mario Odyssey

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

This game got my whole family into video games when it was originally just me! Now we all love playing games together. It really made my family closer, and I'll forever love it for that!

Such a well done game - Dollphin

Well it's in my opinion the greatest mario platformer of all time and one of my all-time favourite games - darthvadern

9 Injustice 2

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

One of the best games I have ever played - iliekpiez

13 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

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

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

36 Soulcalibur VI
37 Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

That's from 2014 though. - B1ueNew

38 Mario Tennis Aces

It's the first mario sports game I have ever played and it's quite awesomne, the story mode is a nice addition and the roster in one of the absolute best in a mario series! There's no clones at all except for Paratroopa but she appears in main games so I'm fine with her, plus she has an awesomne design! - darthvadern

No one care about this character!
