Hopefully by now you’ve seen all our lists (Mikhail, Chris H, Chris W, Mine) that show our diverse tastes in games (we always celebrate indies, here), but we also recorded nearly 9 hours of awards deliberations before coming to the consensus on the overall site top ten.
If you want to hear the awards for best audio, best visuals, best sports/racer, nicest surprise, biggest disappointment, or even our top games we’re hyped for in 2019, you’ll have to listen to the podcasts, but we’ve put together the overall top ten on the off-chance you’ve not got 9 hours to spend.
So that list, then, with key-content that shows how much we loved the games (or in some cases, simply covered them!) in 2018.
