When Ten Isn't Enough: My Top Fifteen Games of 2018

This was one of those years I think will go down in history as one of the best years for video game releases. Looking back over the year, it was an embarrassment of riches. I personally had the good fortune of playing a lot of the great games that came out this year, but even still I feel like I missed out on some true gems like Celeste, Moss, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and Return of the Obra Dinn. Then again, maybe that's a good thing for me because I can only imagine trying to put together a list of my favorite games of the year with even more great games added!

I do want to mention that although they didn't rank in my Top Fifteen, there are some games I enjoyed a lot and am glad I played. Those include Yakuza Kiwami 2, WarioWare Gold, Kirby: Star Allies, Octopath Traveler, Valkyria Chronicles 4, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Mega Man 11, Picross S2, and Pianista. I even found myself enjoying Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, a franchise and game type I'm not usually into. I also want to mention that though I enjoyed Red Dead Redemption 2 and think it's exceptionally well made, it's just not that much fun for me, personally.

All that said, allow me to present my Top Fifteen Games of 2018!
