Nominees for Destructoid’s Best PC Game of 2018

There can be only one

Let’s get it out of the way right up front: There’s not a single battle royale game on this year’s list of nominees for Best PC Game of 2018. That should fill some of you with a warm, fuzzy delight as if you’re seeing old friends for the first time in 10 years.

But, isn’t the process of voting really just a battle royale when you strip down all the pretense? You start with a bunch, seven in this case. And you whittle it down until there’s only one winner. Everything is a battle royale. Life is a battle royale.

The whittling will be tough this year. There were a lot of PC games that stole our collective heart. Dead Cells captured our attention unlike any roguelike over the past few years. The Messenger was a masterclass in Ninja Gaiden-like mechanics. Return of the Obra Dinn actually made us feel like detectives. World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth is the only game here with an established foothold on PC, considering it’s an MMO that has stuck around for well over a decade.

Who gets the chicken dinner or the victory royale? Your guess is as good as mine. I’m just here to list the contenders.

These are the nominees for Destructoid’s Best PC Game of 2018:
