Welcome, my dear readers, to the top 10 games of 2018, spanning Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This is the year I’ll always remember as the time EA declared that nobody was interested in single player games anymore. It was a stupid thing to say at the time, but a slew of fantastic single player games has made EA look even more absurd. Indeed, all round it has been a superb year for games regardless of the platform you play on.
2018 continues to roll onward to its grand finale like a runaway child on a sled down a steep hill, so now that we’re just past the half-way point and are all just starting to realise that Christmas is somehow not that far away again it seems like a good time to check out the best games of the year thus far.
Now, do keep in mind that I currently game on Xbox One and PC, which means a very notable game in which “BOY!” is yelled and uttered a lot won’t be making an appearence on this list. Sorry, Playstation fans, I’m annoyed I missed it too, but money is limited and consoles are expensive.
Oh, and it goes without saying that I need to have actually played it. I’m one person, I can’t play everything. I try, though. I really, really try.
Set in a Steampunk version of the 1800s with everything having gone to an iced-over hell due to a sudden ice age which somehow snuck up on humanity people have decided to leave the cities in order to found new homes using large generators, massive machines that burn coal to provide some warmth amidst conditions reaching -70c. As the captain of this expedition it’s up to you to construct a city, maintain hope and keep everyone alive. No pressure.
