A lot happened in 2018 in the gaming world, mostly good with some bad. Fortnite continued to skyrocket its way to becoming the most popular piece of fictional entertainment since Star Wars (I'm ashamed for that unfortunate but apt comparison), while Bethesda become the target of the entire gaming community following the unceremonious release of Fallout 76. However, a lot of good also happened in the gaming spectrum too. Rockstar finally released Red Dead Redemption 2, which went on to overshadow every other game released this year (but somehow missed the big mark at The Game Awards); God of War gave the god-slaying Kratos an equally vengeful son; Monster Hunter: World proved Capcom still has it in them to deliver pro-consumer greatness; and GRIS reignited the "video games as art" debate once again.
Today, we're here to celebrate our favourite video games of the year. I asked the Nexus Digital team to submit their picks for their Game of the Year, along with a Runner-Up. You'll come to find plenty of surprises and unique picks on this list, with some heavy-hitters notably absent - but that's the beauty of what we consider our favourite gaming experiences. Everyone has differentiating tastes, and we're here to highlight that. So without any more delays, let's get into it.
NOTE: This list comprises of games only released in 2018.
