2018 felt really long. Is that just me? Even looking back to around E3 feels like remembering things that happened ages ago. Maybe it's just me getting old, graduating from the Giant Bomb fan posting this list in 2010 to the full-blown actual professional games critic before you now. I got that title in 2018, and I'm eternally grateful that I'm able to carve out a spot in games media to share my opinions with the world. I'm doing it full time now and it still doesn't feel real. Probably never will.
Anyway, despite being busier than ever, I had plenty of time to play great games in 2018. Here are the cream of the crop.
