    Could we count Subnautica on this list? Its been around since 2016 but came out of early access & was fully released earlier this year. Does that still count?

    RDR2 was my GOTY but im loving this a lot and prefer the actual gameplay over RDR2's clunky controls & rinse & repeat missions.

    Of course it counts.

    My pic is AC Odyssey. Best AC game since Black Flag. Fun gameplay, decent story.

    I found RDR2 to be mediocre. The story is great but the gameplay jars badly against it, as is usual for Rockstar. They also haven't evolved their mission structure at all since their earlier offerings.

    2018 is coming to an end. So its time to start talking game of the year. We still have a few big releases left in November-December so just keep that in mind.

    Here are my top 5 GOTY contenders.














    Honourable mentions: Octopath traveler, DBfighterz, shadow of the tomb raider, Detroit become human.

    What is your top 5 / top 10 goty list?
    Nope lol I really enjoyed my time with it. Finished all, Except for Red Dead 2. But I knew going in it wouldnt be my #1. Its just so massive and has a lot to take in.

    Google agrees with author of thread after inputting 'top games of 2018'. The only difference - it places Fallout 76 on the 5th position. Not sure if new Fallout was successful at all.
    The fact that it's on ANY "goty" lists at all is pretty surprising. It's not very good.

    Anyone who hasnt played DOS2 yet, and likes RPGs at all, needs to jump on last year's Definitive Editon now.

    It's so good...so very, very good.

    My advice: play in Tactician difficulty with 2 Lone Wolves using 2 of the premade backstories, has made the game farrrr more amazing for me this playthrough (if you are ok at games like Xcom and DOS1, that is, since it's pretty challenging with the nerfs in the Definitive Edition).

    Such an amazing experience...miles ahead of pretty much any RPG I can think of, God...nay..., Divinity tier game.

    I tried getting into DOS2 but found it overwhelming & the learning curve was a bit steep for someone who is a noob at old school type RPG's like me.

    I just finished DOS2 classic a few days ago (playthrough I started in June but then went away for months), throughly enjoyed it. What are people's thoughts on the DE after classic?

    Not sure how to answer. Its the same game with improvement. The final act has been improved and expanded, but completing the vanilla campaign means you have completed the game. There is not much to go back for honestly.
    The new version is objectively superior in every way, but its because of many small improvements not massive additions. IMO dumping the original progress and restarting with the new version would have been the better way to go.

    You can always play through with the companions you didn't the first time through. Some of their stories are better than others, but they're all worth a play through. The undead guy is a must have imo, he fleshes out the plot quite nicely.

    As for me, the GOTY would be AC:Odyssey which was very well done imo.

    I got up to the final act in the original edition a year or two ago, but never finished it (HW failure, lost save).

    Is it worth replaying through to the end with the DE? I was considering it when the next release lull hits.

    This is what I did: somehow (I'm not sure how) in my first part-playthrough on Classic (Vanilla DOS2) I took 120 hours or more to just get to Arx, start the final act....then just slipped away to another game. I'm pretty darn glad I did, now that the final act has been improved by the sounds, and the rest of the game is markedly more fun (for me anyways) when it's challenging on Tactician; Classic started off hard but once you get rolling and min-maxing, you smoke everyone I found on that difficulty.

    Playing as one of the pre-defined characters has made the game a lot more interesting story wise too: I'm rolling Ifan as the PC (Warfare/2H/Necromancer/Geo build) with Lohse as my companion (Summoner/Healer/Angry Fire Witch) as I played with Red Prince/Fane/Sebille last time (so only Beast left out...not a fan of dwarfs for some reason, lol). Lone Wolf is SO MUCH FUN!! Every level up feels double rewarding, your turns are longer (more AP points) and you can share the best gear between 2 characters, instead of covering 4...saying that, when one of your 2 man crew is CC'd...you're a bit screwed, unless you've dealt some good CC/damage of your own before being stuck.

    In addition to all the cool improvements, you also get Sir Lora, A Squirrel Knight, who comes with the Definitive Editon. His plotline adds a very interesting new story into the mix, running parallel with your adventure in Rivellon.

    Anyways, I'm slightly joyfully rambling...but yeah, second time round is..., perfection. With all the voicework/gameplay improvements and QoL stuff added and a swanky final act to look forward to....simply amazing, a stunny jewel of a game, perhaps the finest RPG I've played with a soundtrack so good, it's on Mass Effect levels of brilliance.

    Crafted with love, every single part of it.

    If you're not replaying the whole thing so soon then hell yes!
    As mentioned by other make another character or better yet use one of the pre-made ones and choose a new party.
    DOS2DE is literally the best RPG I have ever played and if you have some decent time between playing the first chapters then you'll no doubt have a blast. The changes in the final act should provide enough new/altered content to keep things fresh.

    Would we be able to tally Subnautica on this rundown? Its been around since 2016 however left early access and was completely discharged not long ago. Does that still check?

    RDR2 was my GOTY however im adoring this a great deal and incline toward the genuine interactivity over RDR2's burdensome controls and wash and rehash missions.

    Yeah I asked that earlier in this thread since it came out of early access at the beginning of last year. I think it counts.

    I totally agree with you about RDR2. It was my GOTY until I played Subnautica. The movement and shooting was so shit it became a real chore by the end of the game. Plus when you think about it the missions are really linear compared to the older R* games & you can only play them how the devs intended.

    The gameplay is so much better in Subnautica & I love the freedom of being able to do what you want while still having a story to tie everything together. Also the immersion & atmosphere is almost second to none
