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.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Getting a PC Release Soon?

SEGA’s Yakuza series has been exclusive to the PlayStation consoles but that changed after they announced that Yakuza 0 and Kiwami will be coming to PC. Yakuza 0 is a great PC port and is one of the top-selling games on Steam at the time of writing this article. Now that SEGA can see that the PC platform is a viable one, it seems to be only a matter of time until the rest of the games make their way onto this platform. In SEGA’s fiscal year report the platform for Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is stated to be PlayStation 4 and PC.

As seen in the screenshot above, this could be an error on their part but that seems highly unlikely. Yakuza 0 has been selling quite well and SEGA did say that if Yakuza 0 and Kiwami sold well, they would bring the other games to PC as well. This could be a great time to bring in new fans to the series as 0 and Kiwami(The remake of Yakuza 1) are out/ coming soon and Kiwami 2 should be rolling out soon too. While Yakuza 3 and 4 don’t a have a proper remake like 1 and 2, they do have remasters that are coming out on the PlayStation 4 soon. If they were to port that to the PC in time for the Yakuza 6 PC release, that would be a dream come true for fans. Nonetheless, Yakuza 6 on PC would be quite stunning due to the new engine and the power of the PC allowing players and fans of the series to experience the final saga of Kiryu Kazuma in 4k 60fps glory should they choose to.
