Top 5 Best Stories In Video Games of 2018 | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

Admit it or not, games with good stories always leave us wanting for more. And this year has been especially giving for fans who like their games heavy on the story side. Let’s check out our top five, shall we?

Red Dead Redemption 2

Without spoiling too much, Red Dead Redemption 2 is truly a tale of red, dead redemption. Arthur’s journey, both external and internal is a roller coaster ride as he discovers some remarkable eye opening facts, about himself and his loved ones.

God of War

If you ever played the original God of War games and thought to yourself, “I wonder what this dude would be like if he ever became a dad”, well, think no more. The reboot is quite amazing, both from a visual and a narrative standpoint. Changing the formula from an angry, young man, Kratos is back as an angry, old father. Taking his son on a journey to scatter his mother’s ashes, the game gives players deep insight into his relationship with his son, Atreus. Moments where Kratos struggles to express his affection, and a terrible secret that may very well change his son’s life forever.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

What more can we say about the title that is the only game to ever receive the Marvel Stamp of Approval? The story in Marvel’s Spider-Man is well-paced, and is just the right length, without feeling too stretched or too short. Peter Parker’s relationship with Mary Jane is quite heartwarming too. . . if it doesn’t make you feel bad about not having someone.

Detroit: Become Human

At it’s core, Detroit poses some hard hitting questions, the most fundamental being, “What does it mean to be human?” In a world that is increasingly dependent on technology and AI in every way, the game’s philosophy cannot be overstated.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

The tale of The Dragon of Dojima comes to a conclusion as we witness the end of a saga. An enthralling story packed with various characters, some new and some familiar old faces, this game brings the uniqueness that the Yakuza series has been known for and lulls you into that familiarity while still delivering an emotional and thrilling story.

Top 10 Best Open World Games of 2018 | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

As games get bigger and bigger over the last few years, the open world genre has started to become stale. However, we still have some standouts that refine and reinvent upon the existing formula in interesting ways. So here are our top picks for the best Open World Games of 2018.

  1. Red Dead Redemption 2

    No other games defies the standard conventions of Open World Games than Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s a beautifully realised world with gameplay systems that mesh with each other. It’s a delight to explore the Wild West in Rockstar’s rendition of the genre, thanks mostly to the sheer beauty and variety on display.
  2. Marvel’s Spider-Man

    Gameplay, visuals and narrative blend perfectly in Marvel’s Spider-man. Peter’s story is well told with interesting characters supporting the strong story till the end. Collectibles are meaningful, doling out backstory and useful upgrades, with interesting side-activities providing enjoyable breaks from the action packed story.
  3. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    Like RDR 2, Kingdom Come Deliverance aims to bring in realism to the open world formula, and does a pretty good job of it. The game is set in Bohemia during the 1403, and puts you in the shoes of a peasant who rises up the ranks of Imperial society.
  4. Monster Hunter: World

    While technically Monster Hunter World has different biomes instead of a fully open world, it does have enough similarities to the genre to warrant a place on this list. The gameplay is fun, once you get a hang of the myriad options available. The biomes are diverse, each with their unique inhabitants and challenges.
  5. Far Cry 5

    While Far Cry’s open world template is beginning to get old, playing Far Cry 5 with friends has been a really enjoyable experience, thanks in big part to the open world hijinks available to the player. Everything can be either driven, shot at, flown or blown up, and it never gets old.
  6. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    Now, this a contentious entry in our list. Many have complaints about Odyssey being a reskin of Origins, and they wouldn’t be entirely wrong. However, the sheer scale of the world, the gameplay refinements, and other merits of it’s own raise it above a lot of other games in the genre.
  7. The Forest

    As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants. Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.
  8. State of Decay 2

    If you’re a fan of systems driven gameplay, State of Decay 2 is for you. Minor launch issues aside, this is one of the best zombie survival games in the market right now, and I can’t wait to see what the team at Undead Labs does next.
  9. Shadow of the Colossus

    The vast majority of the land in Shadow of the Colossus is empty and lifeless, but not dull. It does an exemplary job of creating a sense of intrigue as you wander around in search of the colossi, with a dramatic and melancholic soundtrack to accompany you on the journey.
  10. Forza Horizon 4

    Forza Horizon 4’s take on the United Kingdom landscape is a breathtaking one. The open terrain, dynamic weather and the change of seasons all culminate in a memorable experience, making it the best racing game to come out this year.

So those were our picks for the best open world games of 2018. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below.

Top 10 Best PC Games of 2018 | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

The PC market has always had games that are both visual treats and retro aesthetics. This year we had some really good games on PC that either showcased the power of the system or to showcase that there’s still some great indie games. Let’s take a look at our top 10 PC games of 2018 that we feel you should play on your PC.

  1. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Lara Croft is back, and this time she’s brought the apocalypse with her. After accidentally starting the end of the world, Lara now has to track down the notorious Trinity organization to make sure they don’t get their hands on the artifacts that have the power to reshape the world.
  2. Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire

    Deadfire 
    is the sequel to Obsidian’s critically acclaimed RPG, Pillars of Eternity. It focuses on seafaring and island exploration via a ship. Crews can also be hired to look over them, and assist in ship combat. Class based gameplay returns, with each class having three optional sub-classes with unique skills.
  3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Call of Duty has made a triumphant comeback, with boots on the ground multiplayer and Blackout is easily the best Battle Royale mode around right now.

  4. Battlefield V

    RTX debacles aside, Battlefield V is a pretty enjoyable Battlefield game. Though it no longer retains the same strategic depth as Battlefield 3 & 4, it is definitely a big step up from Battlefield 1. There are some standout maps, the weapons feels great, and the game is a delight to look at, even without RTX.

  5. Hitman 2

    Everyone’s favourite assassin is back with a vengeance. Not to spoil too much, but did you know you can kill people by placing a rake in their path? It’s genius, really. Also, to no one’s surprise, the first elusive target is none other than Sean Bean, so fun times galore.

  6. Return of the Obra Dinn

    From the makers of Papers, Please comes another unique, impressive title in the form of a murder mystery. Playing as an insurance agent on an abandoned ship, your job is to piece together the story behind the disappearance of the crew. The visual style of the game is quite novel and refreshing, and so is the story and gameplay.

  7. Into The Breach

    Into The Breach
    is an incredible turn-based strategy game, from the team behind FTL: Faster Than Light. The game is set in the far future where humanity fights against an army of giant monsters collectively called the Vek. To combat them, the player controls soldiers that operate giant mechs that can be equipped with a variety of weapons, armor, and other equipment. The game uses a turn-based combat system, allowing the player to coordinate the actions of their team in response to enemy moves and actions that serve to telegraph their attacks.
  8. Dead Cells

    For people who like super hard games (alternatively, people who hate themselves), Dead Cells is an absolute must play. To put it simply, the game is a rogue-like metroidvania, with procedurally generated levels and impressive pixel art visuals. And brutal, unforgiving gameplay. Seriously, you’ll die a lot.
  9. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    Kingdom Come is a story driven RPG drenched in painstaking detail, though sometimes to the point of annoyance. It focuses a lot on historical accuracy, set in the medieval times in the kingdom of Bohemia. The visuals are jaw dropping, and you get complete choice over what gameplay style you want to follow. Also, it’s hard. Like, really hard.
  10. Forza Horizon 4

    Forza Horizon 4’s
    take on the United Kingdom landscape is a breathtaking one. The open terrain, dynamic weather and the change of seasons all culminate in a memorable experience, making it the best racing game to come out this year.

Top 10 Best Multiplayer Games | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

As much as single player are still alive and doing great, multiplayer experiences have also gotten significantly better. Sure, Fallout 76 was a disaster, but, No Man’s Sky, a disaster back at launch, made a fantastic comeback with multiplayer this year. So here are our top picks for multiplayer titles of 2018.

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Call of Duty has made a triumphant comeback, with boots on the ground multiplayer and Blackout is easily the best Battle Royale mode around right now.
  2. Battlefield V

    RTX debacles aside, Battlefield V is a pretty enjoyable Battlefield game. Though it no longer retains the same strategic depth as Battlefield 3 & 4, it is definitely a big step up from Battlefield 1. There are some standout maps, the weapons feels great, and the game is a delight to look at, even without RTX.
  3. Monster Hunter World

    Monster Hunter World is easily the best Monster Hunter game to be ever made, and is also the most accessible. Sure, you still need to jump through a few hoops to get playing with your friends, but the overall experience is unlike any other. Tacking and hunting is a ton of fun, and the monster encounters are challenging and rewarding.
  4. FIFA 19

    I know it’s easy to disregard every new FIFA entry as the same as the previous year’s game However, hardcore fans and veterans of the series can appreciate even the smaller improvements and roster updates, and FIFA 19 is an easy recommendation to bring a few friends together over an enjoyable round of football.
  5. Warhammer: Vermintide 2

    Warhammer Vermintide 2 filled in the Left 4 Dead 3 shaped hole in my heart I never knew I had. Going through the massive levels, mowing down hordes of enemies, levelling up classes, and finding new loot is just so satisfying.
  6. Fortnite

    Well, we know that Fortnite is technically not a 2018 release, but it would be unfair to disregard the significance that Fornite had this year. It’s easily the biggest game in the world right now, and, for many people, the first introduction to video games.
  7. Insurgency Sandstorm

    The first Insurgency was a highly beloved niche game, and Sandstorm builds up on the formula in significant ways. The gunplay is challenging and the visuals are phenomenal. While still in Early Access, and slated to release before the year ends, there’s enough content here to warrant a purchase.
  8. Red Dead Redemption 2

    Red Dead Online Beta is now live, and, despite the issues, it’s already showing massive potential. The missions are fun, and moseying in the wilderness with friends has never been more fun. We can’t wait to see where Red Dead Online is headed, but given where Rockstar took GTA Online, we can rest assured that it’s going to be awesome.
  9. No Man’s Sky

    No Man’s Sky has been quiet the ride. From a messy launch, to constant updates, two years later, No Man’s Sky is finally a game that is easy recommend, especially now that you can explore the universe with friends. And by the looks of it, Hello Games is not yet done giving out free updates and making improvements to the game.
  10. PUBG Mobile

    While PUBG took over the world by storm last year, PUBG Mobile has become a game-changing phenomenon in India. Folks across the country have been infected by the PUBG fever, and it has exposed more people to the joys of playing with friends than any other game ever did.

So those were our picks for the best multiplayer games of 2018. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below.

Top 10 Best PS4 Games | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

Without further ado, here’s our list of the top 10 best PS4 games to come out this year (in no particular order, of course).

1. Red Dead Redemption 2

Whether it’s looks, or story, or characters, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of art.

Some gameplay issues notwithstanding, it’s seriously hard to overstate what an amazing job Rockstar has done with this title.

2. God of War

Changing the formula from an angry, young man, Kratos is back as an angry, old father. Taking his son on a journey to scatter his mother’s ashes, the game gives players amazing insight into his relationship with his son, Atreus. Moments where Kratos struggles to express his affection, and a terrible secret that may very well change his son’s life forever. It’s a polar opposite of what the original God of War games were about, and the direction it’s taking is impressive to say the least.

3. Marvel’s Spider-Man

What more can we say about the title that is the only game to ever receive the Marvel Stamp of Approval? It’s got everything you’d want from a Spiderman game. Multiple suits? Check. Swinging across New York from the tallest skyscrapers? Check. Webbing guys up in awkward positions? Checkity check. Also, Mary Jane is really cute, so that’s also there.

4. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is back, and this time she’s brought the apocalypse with her. After accidentally starting the end of the world, Lara now has to track down the notorious Trinity organization to make sure they don’t get their hands on the artifacts that have the power to reshape the world.

Top 5 Battle Royale Games | Best of 2018

Let’s face it, battle royale isn’t going away anywhere soon. And as they say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! So here we are, jumping on the bandwagon with our top 10 battle royale games of 2018

  1. PUBG Mobile

    While PUBG took over the world by storm last year, PUBG Mobile has become a game-changing phenomenon in India. Folks across the country have been infected by the PUBG fever, and it has exposed more people to the joys of playing with friends than any other game ever did.
  2. Fortnite

  3. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (Blackout)

    Call of Duty has made a triumphant comeback, with boots on the ground multiplayer and Blackout is easily the best Battle Royale mode around right now.
  4. Ring of Elysium

    In what seemed like a fresh change of pace from PUBG, Ring of Elysium is actually quite a competent Battle Royale game. Sure, it could use a little more polish, but it’s quite enjoyable as it is. Not to mention, YOU CAN SNOWBOARD. And it’s free-to-play, so that’s cool too.
  5. Red Dead Online

    Now there’s something we never saw coming. Well, not really, because it’s stupid to expect any big multiplayer game to NOT have a battle royale component. Unlike its competitors, though, Red Dead Online’s take on battle royale is simple, slow and creates a lot of tension.

Top 5 Worst Games of 2018 | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

Well, now that we’ve seen the best of 2018, how about we take a look on the other side of the spectrum? Here are our picks for the worst games to come out this year, in no particular order, because we can’t be bothered to put these in order.

  1. Fallout 76 (Or, Failout 76)

    Oh, Bethesda. glitchy, buggy, hell-bent on ruining beloved franchises Bethesda. To put it mildly, Fallout 76’s launch has to be one of the worst in the history, and Bethesda’s handling of the entire situation just speaks volumes about how out of touch publishers are with the community. From issues with the game to issues with Collector’s Edition goodies to even more issues with complaint tickets regarding replacement of those goodies, we don’t even know what to say anymore. But hey, at least we still have Skyrim for calculators.
  2. Metal Gear Survive

    Contrary to its name, Metal Gear did not survive. In fact, looking back, I had completely forgotten that Metal Gear Survive had even released in 2018. It was a low-effort mediocre survival game that tried to cash in on the Metal Gear name, and it deserves the failure that it met.
  3. Agony

    Agony tries to appeal to an audience who find enjoy grotesque violence and nudity just for the sake of it. While I assume that such an audience exists, luckily, it doesn’t seem to have money to spend on games. Weak gameplay and terrible graphics further killed any chance Agony had, and it stands tall among the worst games of 2018.
  4. Overkill’s The Walking Dead

    After seeing the initial trailer I honestly had low expectations from Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Even then, this game manages to disappoint on multiple fronts. The core gameplay loop involves mowing down hordes of mindless enemies, and the shooting itself is incredibly weak. Also, the fact that this is a co-op game with no built-in voice chat goes to show how unpolished the overall experience is.
  5. Hunt Down The Freeman

    While the first Half Life game is a revered classic first person shooter, and Half Life 2 is an absolute masterpiece, Hunt Down the Freeman is a steaming pile to hot garbage that tries to milk the nostalgia of millions of Half Life fans. Worst part is that valve allowed this to be sold on Steam – in exchange for actual money. The story is terrible, the gameplay is worse, and it all looks horrible.

So those we our top picks for the worst games of 2018. Did we miss anything? Well, actually don’t tell us, we really don’t want to play any more bad games.

Top 10 Best Games of 2018 | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

2018 was nothing but a blockbuster year for video games. The entire year has slapped us in the face with amazing titles, one after the other. Sure, it’s quite hard (not to mention unfair) of us to pick just 10 of those and tell you about it, but you know, someone’s gotta do it. So here are our top 10 games of 2018.

  1. Red Dead Redemption 2

    God of War may have won GOTY at TGA 2018, but for us, Rockstar’s telling of Arthur Morgan’s story had a much bigger impact. Whether it’s looks, or story, or characters, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of art. It’s a memorable story of loyalty and trust, of murder and betrayal, set against a beautiful but unforgiving environment in the Wild West days. Some gameplay issues notwithstanding, it’s seriously hard to overstate what an amazing job Rockstar has done with this title.
  2. God of War

    Just because we feel that Red Dead Redemption 2 should be GOTY, it doesn’t mean we’re going to disregard the game that actually won the award. The reboot is quite amazing, both from a visual and a narrative standpoint. Changing the formula from an angry, young man, Kratos is back as an angry, old father. Taking his son on a journey to scatter his mother’s ashes, the game gives players deep insight into his relationship with his son, Atreus. Moments where Kratos struggles to express his affection, and a terrible secret that may very well change his son’s life forever. It’s polar opposite of what the original God of War games were about, and the direction it’s taking is impressive to say the least.
  3. Marvel’s Spider-Man

    What more can we say about the title that is the only game to ever receive the Marvel Stamp of Approval? It’s got everything you’d want from a Spiderman game. Multiple suits? Check. Swinging across New York from the tallest skyscrapers? Check. Webbing guys up in awkward positions? Checkity check. Also, Mary Jane is really cute, so that’s also there.
  4. Return of the Obra Dinn

    From the makers of Papers, Please comes another unique, impressive title in the form of a murder mystery. Playing as an insurance agent on an abandoned ship, your job is to piece together the story behind the disappearance of the crew. The visual style of the game is quite novel and refreshing, and so is the story and gameplay.
  5. Dead Cells

    For people who like super hard games (alternatively, people who hate themselves), Dead Cells is an absolute must play. To put it simply, the game is a rogue-like metroidvania, with procedurally generated levels and impressive pixel art visuals. And brutal, unforgiving gameplay. Seriously, you’ll die a lot.
  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Black Ops 4 breathes fresh new life in the Call of Duty series that was in desperate need of it. It brings back the fast-fluid gameplay, while keeping everything grounded. Plus, Blackout, the new Battle Royale mode is easily the best in the genre right now.
  7. Dragonball FighterZ

    Apart being an excellent fighting game, Dragonball FighterZ looks absolutely fantastic. It completely nails the crisp, over-the top action that Dragonball is known for. It’s also easy for beginners to get into, due to the auto-combo feature, but also offers deep systems and a good challenge to those willing to master the game.
  8. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the last in Lara Croft’s reboot trilogy, and it’s a great finale. While the story is throwaway, the tombs and puzzles are top-notch. It’s incredibly exciting and rewarding to explore the new regions, and there’s always a new challenge around every corner. And to top it off, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is damn good looking game.
  9. A Way Out

    A Way Out was the most fun I had playing a game with a friend in 2018. It’s is an exclusively co-op adventure about two strangers coming together under dire circumstances to break out of prison. The narrative is compelling, the moment to moment action moves at an excellent pace, and the co-op gameplay is immensely fun.
  10. Hitman 2

    Hitman 2 can be summed up as more Hitman with some refinements. And it still is as much fun as the original reboot, with massive levels, tons of ways to eliminate targets, and leave the level in utter chaos. Killing someone with an ax to the head in the middle of a crowded conference room never gets old.

So those were our picks for the best games of 2018. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below.

The battle royale experience is immensely fun, and while it is significantly easier to control in comparison to it’s PC counterpart, it’s still a good challenge.
  3. Holedown

    If you like to bounce, Holedown has you covered. Bounce your way around levels, break obstacles, gain points, and have a blast. It’s a simple, yet engaging puzzle game with a lot of charm.
  4. Donut County

    In Donut County, you take control of the greatest video game protagonist ever made – a hole on the ground that engulfs everything on the surface and keeps getting wider. It’s vibrant looking game with some hilarious humor and is a literal time-sink.

Top 10 Best Looking Games | GamingMonk’s Best of 2018

Graphics have always been a big part of what makes video games fun. It’s pretty much what most consoles base as their main selling point, and graphical prowess often becomes the big part of discussion among most AAA games. 2018 had a lot of great looking titles, and here are our top 10 favorite picks:

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is hands down the best looking game you will play on a console. From the lighting, to the gorgeous vistas, the incredible draw distance and the attention to detail, RDR 2 is an absolute graphical powerhouse.

    Say what you will about the game, but Shadow of the Tomb Raider sure is a looker. The mountain village holds breathtaking views and the jungles looks dense and dripping with atmosphere.
  3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

    It’s easy to overlook Odyssey’s grind given how beautiful the game looks. Sure, there are re-used assets from Origins all over the place, but Greece has been gorgeously realized and the graphics make the exploration all the more rewarding.
  4. God of War

    Kratos’ return makes for not just an angrier God of War, but also a lot prettier. Fantastic particle effects make every fight all the more bombastic, and excellent facial animations bring almost character to life.

    Racing games have always been graphical showcases for consoles, and Forza Horizon 4 on the Xbox One X is easily the best display of how powerful the console is.
  6. Battlefield V

    Despite the controversy around NVIDIA’s new RTX cards, it’s hard to deny how good Battlefield V looks especially with RTX on. Fantastic light and fire effects, makes this the most intense battlefield experience to date.
  7. Marvel’s Spider-Man

    After years of waiting, Spider-man fans have a game that they can finally be happy about. The Manhattan skyline is a sight to behold, and as the city flies by you while you zip around and take down foes, the game both looks and feels just right.

  9. Spyro Reignited Trilogy

    Don’t let the cartoonish looks fool you, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a gorgeous looking title. The bright and vibrant environment, coupled with top notch water effects and reflections breathe new life into a beloved game from our childhood. And the animations, are well, some of the best we’ve ever seen.
  10. Dragonball FighterZ

    Apart from being one of the best fighting games we’ve ever played, Dragonball FghterZ was also a great looking game. It captures the over-the-top style of the anime perfectly, and delivers the action with great visual finesse.
