2018 is already an extremely strong year for gaming as many highly-anticipated games have made an impact in the industry, while there’s still loads to come before the year comes to an end. Below, you will find the best games for 2018 along with a handful of upcoming releases that is still to come.

Octopath Traveller

Most RPG’s only feature one protagonist, but the latest production from Acquire/Square Enix will come with a total of 8. Each of them will have different talents and skills along with their own interconnected and unique storyline. It’s up to you to create a party and enjoy the adventure with the game’s HD-2D style graphics, mixing 3D graphics with mixing pixel sprites for a truly unique blend of modern and retro styles. As a traditional Japanese RPG, you can enjoy detailed storytelling and turn-based combat.

Warhammer: Vermintide II

After three long years, the sequel is set to arrive to improve and polish what was already a marvellous 4-player cooperative game where players fought against a horde of rat-men featuring various abilities and weapons. The environment that draws from the Warhammer universe will produce an atmospheric world which will be set during the last days on moody and dark maps.


Life is Strange is what made Dontnod Entertainment with their version of a supernatural story, but since then, the company took a sharp turn to develop an action-packed RPG that is based on vampires during the early 20th century. You’ll take the role of a doctor that has been infected with the weaknesses and powers of a vampire. You will need to fight your way through several undead enemies and decide if you will embrace or suppress your new identity.

Mario Tennis Aces

The series first made its appearance on Switch, with Aces adding loads of brand-new features to this incredible arcade sports game which makes it a far more compelling and interesting experience both online and offline. The game will feature new special moves like a super meter for ultimate techniques and a way to defend tricky shots. If you want a story mode, you will be pleased to know that you’ll also find one in this game.

God of War

There’s been an arsenal of improvements and changes made to the latest God of War release when you compare it to the previous games from Santa Monica Studio. More inspiration has been incorporated from RPG’s along with side quests in an open world. You will also find more weapons and more upgrades as you are joined by Kratos’ son who will fight with his own unique abilities. The Greek setting has also been replaced by Norse mythology to keep things fresh.


With a mere 60 seconds to take action every day before being sent back to the start, this game can be extremely frustrating. However, Minit from Devolver Digital is, in fact, an extremely fun and exciting puzzle game with a retro RPG atmosphere. Thankfully, the most important events will remain permanent, and you’ll find loads of alternative routes and shortcuts to save time and pursue your goals.
