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

    KH3 at number 5 i'll take it, shame about DBF just missing out

    Very close results for top 3.

    The top 3 were very close, but I'm happy RDR 2 snagged number 1! Great to see Metro: Exodus receive some love.

    The FighterZ love is sparse I see. Top 3 is as expected, but damn was it close.

    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...

    Great work!

    Octopath and Fire Emblem did really well for being a smaller scale title and an unrevealed one, respectively!

    Great list, with a very close top 3. Looks like 2018 is going to be another solid year for gaming.

    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.

    also man every game in the top ten is on the PS4, i wanna say when was the last time this happend but considering this is kinda the first time that isn't going to work

    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!

    Not bad, every game in the top 10 (13 actually) can be played on the PS4.

    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.

    Great list. I’m surprised the top 3 ended up so close
     
  21. Zedark

    Zedark Member

    #21
    Yeah, same with last year. SMO, XBC2, MK8D and ARMS likely would have made my list for last year.
     
  22. #22
    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.

    Every game in top 10 is heavily tied to PlayStation, another great year incoming
     
  24. nib95

    nib95 Member

    #24
    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.

    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.
     
  28. #28
    That top 3 are so close. No runaway winner which is great and testament to a very big tear ahead of quality gaming.

    And I got quoted :D
     
  29. #29
    Tfw only one game from your list made it onto the top ten

    https://www.resetera.com/posts/2001025/

    Boy do I feel outside the mainstream here. I get the hype for Red Dead 2 even if it isn't my cup of tea but those others do nothing for me.

    Detroit will at least give us a new Best Friends LP

    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.

    Shadow of the collosus being number 7 for a remaster is impressive
     
  32. #31
    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.

    FWIW, Nintendo is rumored to start talking about the 2018 Switch lineup on January 11.
     
  34. #33
    The closer the game release, the stronger the anticipation. That can boost position of games.

    Poor No Truce With the Furies, easily my most anticipated game and truly a game changer if it lives up to even half of its promises.

    Dreams should easily be in the top 5. You guys are sleeping on it.

    Super happy with Monster Hunter: World's placement (and the entire list, really). Great job, everyone.

    Top 5 is perfection.

    Aside from Yakuza, I'm buying everything from top 10 list.

    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:
    LOL Beaten.

    Nice to see RDR2 and GoW in the top, but Im a bit suprised Spider-Man got so many points.

    It's not midnight in Blenheim.
     
  46. #45
    Well, the top 2 look good, anyway
     
  47. #46
    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!

    Starlink at 157.

    Looks like that game dodged almost everybody's radar

    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.

    2018 looking weak for me, I'm super pumped for Ni No Kuni II.
