Best Video Games of 2018


The Top Ten

1 God of War

Screw Fortnite, this is the real deal. - psiddy42

I just finished playing it, and it has the potential to make my #1 game of the year on my remix. This is a monstrous and action-packed game with and fantastic story and some of the most incredible combat sequences I've witnessed. - Mcgillacuddy

Extremely great story, great soundtrack, and overall pretty enjoyable

Ya'll know you get your $60 worth - crookzturtles

2 Fortnite

I have one thing to ask all those 15% of people that voted this, what the heck is wrong with you? Fortnite is my 2nd least favorite video game of all-time. I cannot stand this horrid excuse for a game, the fanbase is terrible enough to make me hate the game itself too. School used to be bad for the homework, the popular girls, the annoying kids, but when Fortnite became popular in 2018, I just wanted to do NOTHING but LEAVE my school FOREVER! Fortnite is the main reason of torture, people try to get you to play this awful game, I had to unsubscribe SO MANY youtubers when they upload Fortnite more than anything else. 2018 was when the game was POPULAR, it was released in 2017. To my heart, please remove this off the list! - BlueBobYT

Guys, fortnite should not be number 1. It is highly overrated and is riddled with 12 year olds.

Edit: Thankfully God of War topped this generic game. However #2 is still too high. Bring it down to the bottom 20. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Yes, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was announced, so there COULD be a 2018 game better than Fortnite. Or maybe there is NO SUCH thing as the "best game of 2018". Besides, Fortnite is a 2017 GAME, it became popular in 2018. - TheYoshiPyro64

Battle royale is so much fun, and its free, not much more to say

Not just the most overrated game of 2018, but maybe the decade. - Cyri

3 Far Cry 5

This game is way better than Fortnite, everyone should know that. YOU CAN TAME ANIMALS.

Remains to be quite similar to two of its predecessors, but its heart still doesn't lose steam as this series remains to be a good time for fans and first-timers, especially in online co-op. - Mcgillacuddy

Hey. Whoever said, YOU CAN TAME ANIMALS. By the way you can do that in Minecraft. MINECRAFT! - KingColeB

I vote just cause 3, but it's not on this list

4 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Way better than Fortnite - AliciaMae

Yes this is superior to fortnite and it hasn't even come out yet. How do I know this? Because Fortnite is riddled with 12 year old squeakers who masturbate to Ali-A.

Screw Fortnite I can't wait for the next smash game I played brawl and loved the story this is gonna be good for me this game is the reason I want a switch right now and mario tennis aces.

Its not out but looks amazeballs

5 Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption was a great video game. Let's hope that this game isn't disappointing. - 50

I got high hopes for this game because of how good the first one was - toptendudes

Hasn't come out yet, but when it does, its gonna break some records

I am huge fan of Red Dead Redemption. I voted God Of War since it is already out but I am pretty sure RDR 2 will stomp everything of the current generation after it's release - Johnalove

6 Dragon Ball FighterZ

The year has just begun so I'll vote for something that actually has come out. This game is marvelous, one of the best dragon ball games and actually one of the fighting game I've ever played. The story is something new with correct tone coming from the anime. Gameplay is fantastic and battles seem exactly lile the anime. The art design and graphics are marvelous and you get invested. Gameplay is easy to learn and also the process is very fast. There are many of options or playable modes to get invested. Every single character is fantastic (yes, even yamcha) and everything is balanced. My only problem with that is that the character rosted is very disappointing (in my opinion). Another problem is that other characters and music will be paid dlc! That's abussive actually and it makes me think that in the future for 60 bucks we will only have the right to acess to a game but that the menu, the music, the dialogues and practically everything will have to paid separately. Nevertheless ...more - Ale99

This game feels like it was made for casuals, but then at the same time, you get stomped on if you are one. No reason for it to be the best.

Actually a great game! - RevolverOcelot

Fan service supreme

7 A Way Out

This is by far the best game of 2018, the story is so touching, I love the idea of bringing a 2 player campaign which makes this game very iconic, and "Spoiler alert" when Leo dies if you choose leo dying, the part where Alex confused about what's happening and screaming "Mom" makes my cry a lot, in my opinion 9.5/10

From what I've played so far, I find it a fun, good game in general that is further improved by the stupid stuff tat you can do throughout. - kempokid

Already have a contender for GOTY. This was so much fun. Make sure to play this with a close bud, makes the experience all the more enjoyable. - cjWriter1997

8 Detroit: Become Human

Finishing the game I can truly say that this is among one of my most favorite games of all time. It's unique, charming, emotional, and diverse. The characters each have a certain tone to their storylines and playing with them will get you to grow with at least one character. If you finish with one bad ending it can hit you in the feels pretty hard (as I did with Kara) and finishing the game leaves you wanting more. The most interesting thing about the game is that each choice you make leads you to a different path and gives the game a significant amount of replay value for a single player game. It may have its minor plotholes, but it dosen't stop it from being the masterpiece it is. Very good game from Quantic Dream. The effort wasn't wasted and those years of development were worth it.

I finished the game and it was one of the most unique gaming experiences I've ever had. The characters, the story, the emotions, the choices, flowcharts and everything else in it dragged me into the game. I grew with the characters a lot and boy, just one bad ending from one character can hit you hard.

Every single choice you made leads to a different path. Even the smallest details will be affected. Powerful message, great story and such loveable characters. 11/10 would recommend

2018 hasn't been great for video games in my opinion, but this game was fantastic. - GameRiderTom

9 Marvel's Spider-Man

This is probably gonna be cool - toptendudes


Not out yet but am excited for this and rdr2

10 Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Holy crap, this game's like Castlevania 3 on steroids. Seeing as I love that game, I've been having a blast with this one. If this is what we're getting as a sort of teaser, then I can't wait for Ritual of the Night. - Zach808

The Newcomers

? Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption

An underrated masterpiece! Gameplay is amazing, the story about a thief that comes to a university of heroes and he must be a hero, a must play! Too bad it's not that well-known - darthvadern

? The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

The Contenders

11 Celeste

One of the greatest games I've ever played. Beautiful soundtrack, precise controls, crystal clear graphics, and a touching story.

It should be number 1 it's the best game of 2018, the story is such a masterpiece, plus it has the best soundtrack I've heard in years

Lol it's overrated; you can beat the game easily within seven hurs. It would be better if there was also a level editor and multiplayer. - Extractinator04

On the surface, this game may just seem like another pixellated indie platformer. However, the experience runs so much deeper than that. Through a gripping story, beautiful graphics, and one of the best soundtracks I’ve heard in a while, this game really struck a chord with me. The overall theme of this game is depression, and this game tackled the issue in a mature, nuanced manner while using the gameplay and environments to immerse me into it. Sure, the game’s only around 8 hours or so, but it’s a damn good 8 hours. Also, it’s one of those games where a large amount of content opens up the more you collect, so you can definitely keep playing for a while. - Zach808

12 Kirby Star Allies

I finally got a Kirby game and this was my first one! I was absolutely blown away by the graphics compared to other Kirby games I've seen people play. They brought back the helper system, which I liked. So yeah I haven't finished it yet but I already love it! - Ravenfang

This game is so excellent. Excellent story, excellent visuals, game play was good. Why is this game so underrated? It's really good and way better than a stupid game called Fortnite.

Kirby is one of my favorite video game characters of all time. This game is very fun and not so competitive like Fortnite - KingSlayer93316

Honestly gow was better but I voted for this game because of its unique charm and great level design, it also has a huge boost in graphics I also loved the idea of over 50 adorable kirby villins that are now his friends, and the helper system was a great idea to bring back, also the new spicy challenges were innovative 9.3/10

It's the best game in the world I can't wait till its released

22 Forza Horizon 4 Forza Horizon 4

Haven't seen anything aside from the trailer and the demo, but this is already shaping up to be the greatest open-world racing game of all time

Hell yeah, I'm stoked - Gypsy

Hasn't come out yet, so why is it on this list?

23 Blackroom
24 Shadow of the Colossus

How is Fortnite and Baldi’s Basics above this masterpiece? People should learn about this game. This is the 2018 remake, and it is the most beautiful of the three. This game deserves more attention. I seriously recommend this. - UltraSandStorm

25 Metroid Prime 4

No way this comes out in 2018. - cringebinge

26 Sea of Thieves

It is AWESOME you go around on your pirate boat and dig up treasure a

This game is so fun but it is not for everyone and still has a lot of room for improvement. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and feel like I have gotten my money’s worth out of it but that is just for me. Make sure to play with at least one other person when you are playing because otherwise you aren’t getting the full experience of the game. Overall it is a very good game although does feel a little content empty sometimes.

27 Metro: Exodus
28 Consortium: The Tower
29 Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Looking forward to this

30 Roblox Roblox

Worst game ever. So many scammers. This is an 5-8 year old online dating game. You have to use what other people built to make your world. Company only wants money. The administrators ban innocents. Plus kids are encouraged to steal their parents credit card and spend millions of dollars on robux. Terrible programming language. The items get overpriced. Events getting super hard. So many people are quitting this game every single day. I would rather replace this with Minecraft. This game doesn't deserve to even be a 2018 game. - WorldPuncher47592834

This game is the reason for most sandbox games. Where everyone develops a game and increasing their chances for jobs in the future

I LOVE this game all these other people are just SUCKERS I bet its because other people have trashy games and have never made it to the top 50 40 30 20 10 Now onto Roblox there's negatives within the positives and positives within the negatives so buzz of! and by the way you voted for Roblox

If you make an account you can comment on things you didn't vote for - TheInsomniac

Suckers, roblox is the best

31 Mario Tennis Aces

This game is actually really good! Even though it is dedicated for multiplayer, it has a bunch of single player modes, the best being Adventure Mode. Move this game to number 2 because Fortnite is too stupid and overrated.

It's not even out yet lol

32 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4


no. Dear god no. This isn't a Call of Duty game, let alone a Black Ops game. It's just a money-grab attempt to cash in on the Battle Royale craze. But here's the thing: once the battle royale mode dies down in popularity, don't be surprised to see sales of this game plummet. This franchise is dying, if not already dead, and only an actual game with an actually good campaign and non-pay to win multiplayer can save it. - troll999999999

33 WWE 2K19

This game hasn’t released yet but a conference is held on 18 June for this game

Didn’t even come out yet, and it’s in the top 20 already - KingSlayer93316

There will be soon. Monday, June 18th is the cover reveal. Maybe early gaming footage will be out by then - KingSlayer93316

34 Subnautica

Footnote is better than call of duty

It's EPIC! (Fortnite sucks! )

35 Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning

It's just your run of the mill horror game that gets really popular for some reason. - Extractinator04

School with meth

Great game, so fun!

Congratulations! You failed all 7 notebooks! Now all you need to do is... GET OUT WHILE YOU SILL CAN! hehehe - RealUprising
