Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2018

This was a weird year. I think I played the same amount of games I usually do (around 200) but I didn't necessarily have the time for as many long-form experiences as usual due to the appearance of our first kid. Still, a lot of games came ...

Mike sounds off on his top gaming moments of 2018

2018 was a busy year for me. I managed to hold on to full-time employment, moved twice, and became more fully invested in my Gundam model kit hobby. As a result, my free time, as well as my free cash, was a lot more restricted than it was i...

Destructoid's award for Overall Best Game of 2018 goes to...

Kratos won it in 2018, and he didn't even need to proc Wrath of the Gods. In case you haven't played it yet, God of War is a triumph from start to finish. Although it was both maligned and celebrated as "Dad of War" before release, Son...

Hovermale's best games of 2018 from 2017

This year was a good yet weird period of gaming for me, for many reasons. The weirdest one is that I’ve tightened my personal gaming budget so much that I’ve barely played any of this year’s brand new games, including seve...

Destructoid's award for Best PC Game of 2018 goes to...

Into the Breach leaves nothing to chance, nothing to luck. It tells you exactly what it's going to do, all the while daring you to stop it. And most of the time you can't. How frustrating yet fair. Into the Breach is Subset Games'...

Destructoid's award for Best Switch Game of 2018 goes to...

Celeste has managed to break free from the "indie" moniker and much like its protagonist, soar into the sky. It's become part of the collective conversation of 2018, even making a splash at the 2018 Game Awards, winning two categories ...

Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2018 goes to...

Insomniac Games got so much right with Spider-Man. First and foremost: the swinging. Collectively, we're conditioned to expect Spider-Man to move a certain way as he swings around town, zipping between high-rises like the concrete jungle is...

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Portable Game of 2018
