I did not finish a lot of game from this year and I didn't even play many of the titles showing up on other people's Game of the Year lists. So here is my weirdo list of games I played this year with the first three games being actual 2018 titles and the last two being games I scrubbed off my backlog.
Also, here are my previous GOTY lists:
PS: The only reason Dragon Quest IX isn't on here is because I haven't finished it yet. That game is fantastic and should be played by any and all JRPG fans.
