We didn’t have a community ranking for last week.


This week we will be ranking: Our Top 5 Most Anticipated Games of 2018!


#5 God of War –


Greek Mythology, Kratos and an action based adventure game? What’s not to love? I haven’t played any games in the God of War series but from watching my friends play, I am pretty excited about playing the newest installment myself. Release Date: April 20th, 2018

#4 Far Cry 5-


Wanted to play Far Cry 4 but never got around to it, now with the additions to FC5, ready to take on the game. This action adventure First Person Shooter will be open world with a story attached but player is able to free roam. There is said to be customization for the first time in the series so that you can create a character to play with during the story. Release Date: March 27th, 2018.

#3 Sea of Thieves –


Categorized as an action adventure co-op multiplayer game, you travel the high seas in 1st person as a pirate. Sea of Thieves seems to take on the RPG -esque genre by allowing players to sail the high seas with their companions. There is cross platform play between PC and Xbox One which is awesome. It looks to be an Open world game that will consist of  quests, looting and fighting. You can even designate roles in your crew, hopefully I can talk my friends into Sea of Thieves. Release Date: March 20th, 2018

#2 Kingdom Come: Deliverance –


This game came across my radar when I was reading The Year of RPG post by Athena at Ambigaming. She was listing the RPG games that she will be working on this year and Kingdom Come was on the list. I researched the game and fell in love because it is a medieval rpg game. There are a few features that worry me about the game, but I can’t wait to play and experience it for myself. Rumors are that a Game of Thrones mod will be released for the game as well!  Release Date: February 13th, 2018.

#1 Red Dead Redemption 2 –


I’ve been waiting for RDR 2 for a few years now. When the blog started last year, one of my first posts was on the game from Rockstar that aims to pick up where Red Dead Redemption left off. I hope I am not disappointed, because I had so much fun on the original game shooting people off horses, playing outlaws to the end and completing quests. The best part was going to Bear Claw Camp or the hunting lodge and running from either giant bears or mountain lions. My hope for RDR2 is to have more co-op missions that you can play with your friends and some of the old options. Release Date: October 26th, 2018.

Those are my top 5 anticipated games of 2018. There are other great games that could have made the list, but I am most looking forward to these. Which games are you looking forward to playing this year? List your top 5 in the comments! Let’s talk upcoming games!

  1. Great post! I’m very excited about God of war, it looks incredible. Can’t wait! I’m also looking forward to The last of us 2 and Days gone, not sure when they’re out though 😛

    1. Thanks! The Last of Us 2 looks like a very good game and many of my friends are super excited for it’s release. Unfortunately, I have never played the first one and it’s just not pulling my interest at the moment. Thanks for dropping by! 😀

      1. You’re very welcome! The first Last of us is amazing, one of my favourite ever games. I’d highly recommend it when you fancy something story driven 🙂 No problem, I enjoy your posts! 🙂

  2. God of War, Ni No Kuni 2, Spider Man, Sea of Thieves and Project Octopath Traveler are my top 5 so far, though who knows what the big 3 will announce at E3.

      1. Yeah, it is the sequel to the original Ni No Kuni, but you don’t need to have played the first to follow it. It isn’t based on an existing anime, but the first was done with the help of Studio Ghibli and this one has Studio Ghibli ex-staffers working on it.

        Essentially it is about a world that exists parallel to our own with versions of people from our world in that one, of course it is much more fanciful than ours.

        The original one is one of my favorite game of all time, so this one is hotly anticipated for me.

  3. Many great titles! I am actually looking forward to Hunt: Showdown, Eco, Light Fall, The Universum, Far Cry 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2!

    1. Ooohhhhh Bestie!!!! Did you sign up for the closed alpha of Hunt Showdown???? I did last week and if you ahven’t signed up, you should! We can play together 😀

  4. I know there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding both content and working practices recently, but I can’t deny I’m really looking forward to playing Detroit: Become Human. There’s also Praey for the Gods; I backed the Kickstarter in 2016 so I’ve been waiting a while ha ha ha!

  5. I can’t wait for RDR2!! I enjoyed RDR and even like the Undead Nightmare(I hope they have UN2 “))! I wish it was out on the spring, but could wait a few more months….

    1. Right me too considering the original release date was last year. Hopefully, Undead Nightmare will be in the game as well as the co-op expansions. Thanks for commenting

  6. Red Dead 2 for sure.. The other’s I’ll probably wait for a while. Well. As of posting this they’re already out! God of War sounds incredibly tempting though based on reviews.
