I love Rockstar Games. More precisely, I love their open-worlds. GTA has that satire feel to it, with cartoonish characters, absurd stories, and crazy gameplay sequences. Red Dead Redemption got on to me because even though still had some of that witty writing, its themes are way soberer and it was so different from what made GTA one of my favorite franchises, while still maintaining that attention to detail and quality that only Rockstar can achieve on a sandbox game.
Red Dead Redemption was the best game I've ever played. That game changed my gaming taste. I never cared that much about immersion and stories in games till I played RDR. I've been waiting for RDR2 since then.
The first one was great and certainly one of the best open world games out there. They've been working on it a while, so hopefully its worth the wait.
First true current-gen Rockstar game and the sequel to one of the GOATs. Hype is through the roof.



I myself have never played a previous entry to this series, but the game looks absolutely incredible. The Norse mythological setting is intriguing, hopefully the father-son dynamic will strike a chord, and the combat looks brutal. I am anticipating a heck of a spectacle from start to finish.
I'm a fan of the series and have played every entry. I feel something will have to go horribly wrong for me not to end up enjoying this entry in the series. It's Kratos and Norse mythology. I can't see Sony Santa Monica messing this up.
Norse mythology and the new approach made me curious. It also seems to be a journey through a diverse landscape. I want it now!



Insomniac is one of my favorite developers. With support from Marvel/Disney and Sony, they are making what will more than likely be a high quality game involving the Spider-Man IP. It doesn't take much else to get me hyped for this. I am really happy that Insomniac is being given a big budget to develop a game. They deserve it.
Even in the face of Arkham Asylum, I contend that Spider-Man 2 is the most evocative, licensed super hero game ever made. Few games have encapsulated the incredible freedom of Spider-Man since 2004, but I believe we're finally due in 2018.
I've been waiting for good Marvel video game for a while and Spiderman seems like the game I've been waiting for.



For years people wondered if Monster Hunter would ever be able to truly break through in the West and it looks like with Monster Hunter World the series has the best shot its ever had. A game that utilizes the new power of the systems its on to accentuate the best part of the series, the monsters themselves, to make hunting with your friends look more dynamic and fun than ever before.
After putting hours into the beta, Monster Hunter: World has been cemented as my most anticipated game of 2018. The much-needed quality of life changes, organic ecosystem, visual upgrades, and miscellaneous refinements elevate the franchise to heights I could only dream of, with cramped hands gripping at a 3DS.



I've been slowly working my way through the Kingdom Hearts games since picking up HD 1.5+2.5 earlier in the year, and I am slowly falling in love with the series. The beautifully designed worlds and confusing yet awesome story have really drawn me in, and the chance to finally experience the next mainline chapter in this crazy story is incredibly exciting.
I have finished high school, started and finished college, got married, bought a house, and am 6 months from my 10 year HS reunion since KHII. Words can't properly express my excitement and hope for this game. Not even to mention adding Tangled and Big Hero Six worlds.
One of my favorite franchises of all time and the sequel I have been waiting for ages. I just love Kingdom Hearts series and this has been my most anticipated game since the official reveal back in 2013.



You can boil the game down to being an interactive movie with hundreds (thousands?) of branching paths that the player gets to actively be a part of. What's not to love? I haven't played any of QD's previous games yet, though I really want to, so this is going to be a new experience for me. Regardless of that, though, the very concept of adventure games like this, where there's so many choices, is incredibly compelling. While it's not breaking new ground and whatnot, the story and its themes definitely have my interest.
Heavy Rain, despite its shortcomings, was a delight and a breath of fresh air at the time. Since then Telltale and Until Dawn have taken things to greater heights and it is time Quantic Dream returned to the throne.
Big fan of Heavy Rain and from everything I've seen so far, Detroit looks like a significant step up for Quantic Dream. Hell yes.



In my mind one of the most powerful games ever. Hunting down majestic colossi is a procedure of handling your inner conflicts and Agro is one of the best. Recreated by Bluepoint, you know this game is in good hands.
101 gaming game, now in 4K <3



Dragon Quest is to me one of the most essential definitions of grand, epic adventures in videogames. They boast long journeys, filled with different towns and cultures, great characters and quirky NPCs. DQXI seems to have all of this, along with an even more refined combat system (after Persona 5 i realized i actually miss turn based combat systems) and gorgeous graphics to date. Can't wait to hear the main theme kick in on my PS4 and be completely sucked in for 80~100 hours, and come out as i've live in another world.
Just bought a new couch, and I'm ready to lose myself in a big RPG while in style. Pretty lame reason, but I'm pumped.



The first Ni No Kuni still comes the closest for me to recapturing 16 and 32 bit jrpg magic in high fidelity with modern production values. It also highlighted for me the joy of exploration in an old-school world map. Far less ground to cover than in open world games, but a feeling like you can really get your head around and master the world over the course of your journey. II looks just as full of heart as the first.
"a true JRPG" is what I called the first one and I can hardly wait to play this charming sequel. Had the chance to try the demo at a recent gaming event and I loved it.



It brings me so much joy that Yakuza is finally starting to catch on more in the West and be recognized for being the completely batshit insane fun and dramatic crime drama that it is. It is, perhaps, fitting that in a year marked as something of a resurgence for Japanese games and on a console reaching ridiculously broad audiences we would find the Yakuza's greatest Western success, Yakuza 0. I hope the momentum continues and that the latest sequel in this now sizeable series captures even more players' hearts and critical praise.

Artifact was robbed but at least Horse Testicle Physics was enough to score Red Dead Redemption 2 the number one spot.

It worked, but it's the not middle of the night in Europe. Damn timezones, you can never be safe.

On the topic of the actual list: That's an impressive gap between #3 and #4. Almost twice as much for Spider-man...

Odd to see FighterZ not in the top 10. Is it because it’s realising so early in the year?

Anyway interesting list even if nothing I voted for made it very high.

Fantastic top 3! Very close too...wow! Close enough that I feel those 3 all belong in the same category.

I have to say though...seems kind of weak for third party games this year!

Hm, can't say I'm that excited for many of the games in this list. It's unfortunate FighterZ didn't make the top 10. This year will mainly be catching up on 2017 for me.

All top 10 games are playable on PS4. Five of them are full PS4 exclusives, and two are console exclusives [PS4+PC]. Only 2 games from top 25 are not on PS4.

Didn't even notice that till you mentioned, but you're right. The PS4 is very likely going to have another dominant year. Be interesting to see what big new game announcements are in store for Nintendo and Microsoft in 2018.
 
#25
I didn't bother voting because I didn't think I'd even be able to think of two games I was anticipating. Good to see the list prove me wrong. Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest XI, Octopath Traveller, Mega Man 11, Bloodstained, and Indivisible all being for this year makes it seem like I'll have plenty to play after all.

Expected results. Most of my nominations made the top 10. Good to see Octopath in the top 20, too.

Can't wait for Monster Hunter.

A truly high production value game of its kind with seemingly various QoL including on the big screens which is my preferences for 3d camera action games.

The FighterZ love is sparse I see. Top 3 is as expected, but damn was it close.
Yeah, I was expecting it to be in the top 8. It looks so good I'm surprised. I'm really surprised about people being so hype for a port of a PlayStation 2 game, but since this gen started people have been asking for more and more ports of older games than just playing it on their older systems.

Top 5 was about what I expected to see, especially since Nintendo hasn't spilled the beans on their 2018 slate. But I expected RDR2 to have been the clear winner by a landslide, so I'm kind of amazed that Spidey and God of War were fairly close in the running. Also kind of expected KH3 to be higher (3 or 4) given the fanbase it has around here.

Amazing work Muzy, especially since this was all hand-counted.

It's always the middle of the night somewhere in the world.
That's a very close top 3 and a big drop for 4. I hope MHW still does well.

Edit:
It worked, but it's the not middle of the night in Europe. Damn timezones, you can never be safe.

On the topic of the actual list: That's an impressive gap between #3 and #4. Almost twice as much for Spider-man...
LOL Beaten.

Am I missing it or do I not see Ori 2 anywhere on the list?

Anyway, impressive how close the top 3 are. I didn't vote but I would have it GoW and Spidey near the top of my list too. It's going to be another fantastic year for gaming.

From the list (top 20), I have 5 definite buys:
  • God of War
  • Dragon Quest XI
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4
  • Project Octopath Traveler
  • Fire Emblem Switch
and 5 might buys:
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom
  • Days Gone
In addition, there are a few titles not in the top 20, as well as plenty of moments where new titles might be revealed for the year. Gonna be a good year once again!

This thread really cements the fact that 2018 is going to be the year of Sony. A majority of the top ten are exclusive/limited exclusive or play best on PS4. And the supplementary titles like Days Gone, Concrete Genie, and Shenmue 3 between those releases only makes the PS4 2018 roster that much better.

I do can’t wait to be able to play just half of these games.
