My Top Ten(ish) Games from 2018 (more or less)
So I've never really written anything for myself but I figured I would give this a shot. 2018 has been a weird year for me. I spent the first few months in a hotel while waiting to mobilize on a project and then moving cross country back in March for said project, which probably short-changes some of the larger releases from the first part of the year. Once that was all settled I've gotten into a pretty good routine and seem to have the best work/life balance I've had in a while. And with delays in our project, I actually have time to play more games then I have in the past few year.
So with out further ado my list is as follows. I know not all of the games that follow did not all release in 2018, however these are the games that had the most impact on me in 2018 and It's my list I'll do what I want to.
Monster Hunter World: Played most of this game while I was in a hotel while waiting to move for our next project. I enjoyed my time with it, but fell off hard after moving across the country.
God of War: Absolutely gorgeous, fun combat, however the story lost steam for me about 2/3rds of the way trough and I never really hopped back on.
Red Dead Redemption 2: The original Red Dead Redemption was one of my favorite games of the Xbox 360 era so I was disappointed when I fired up 2 only to find it not grabbing me at all. I've put maybe 10-12 hours into this game but cannot seem to stick with it for more than an hour or two before getting bored. I can appreciate the effort that went into creating this massive and beautiful open world, however when I am fighting the controls to do just about anything it makes me just not want to stick around. I may come back around to it sometime next year to see if it gets better, but I'm not feeling it now.
