Video games achieved new heights in 2018, with more immersive experiences through compelling stories and technologies such as VR. Singe-player games proved why they are here to stay despite the recent domination of multiplayer experiences. Without any more delay, here is the list of top 10 video games of 2018:
10. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (2018)
‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ is set in London swept by the wave of Industrial Revolution. It was received with acclaim, but even then, the franchise still took a year-long hiatus. The general opinion was that the series remained the same, especially after ‘Unity.’ After the release of ‘Origins’ last year, the new direction that the series had taken was obvious, since it brought in new role-playing gaming (RPG) elements more predominantly. While ‘Odyssey’ was thought to be almost like its immediate ascendant, Ubisoft would buck this criticism with a multiple choice-based narrative, in-depth combat and skill progression, and the perfection of the RPG mechanics of ‘Origins’ that was released just a year ago. At a time once ‘Assassin’s Creed’ was no longer considered as the series it once was, ‘Odyssey’ has brought in a renewed hope not witnessed in years.

9. Into the Breach (2018)
Turn-based strategy games are usually seen as an acquainted ground for an audience habituated with games as a whole, but the scintillating ‘Into the Breach’ by Subset Games beats such pigeonholing with great comfort. Players are taken into a future witnessing fights between humans with creatures called the Vek. Advanced mechs are the key to beat them in battles, where the defence of civilian structures is crucial, as they power up the machines. With a large number of equipment, weapons, and an unparalleled depth in gameplay, it is no wonder that ‘Into the Breach’ is arguably the best strategy game this year. The ‘Best Strategy Game’ award at the recently finished Game Awards adds to its popularity.
