No love for Detroit?

My personal list is not decided yet. I have five candidates:
Detroit: Become Human
God of War
Red Dead Redemption 2
shadow of colossus
Celeste
PS. I remembered another one
Forza Horizon 4

I'm new here and gonna be useless at these game of the year lists.

I rarely play games on release but often buy them a little later and then they go in my backlog......

.........then I forget which year they came out,lol.

I know Far Cry 5 came out this year,I played that but thats not gonna win it for me though,I have God of War and Red Dead 2 on my shelf and I'm just finishing up Spider-Man which has been really great.

Did Dark Souls Remastered come out this year,think it did......I played that.....does that even count......thats probably the best game released this year I played(was my first time through it).

Sadly, the only game I played on that list is Artifact and it is nowhere near GOTY.

I imagine it will be God of War or Spiderman since I've heard nothing but good things about those two.

Holly shit I completely forgot that Shadow of The Colossus remake also came out in 2018. I played it and LOVED it but I don't know why I kept thinking that I played that game in 2017. This game will also goes list of games I played in 2018 that did not disappoint

@cormack12 so are we definitely keeping ports on the list..? I could see straight-up remakes like SotC and Spyro that rebuilt the game from the ground up but seeing Wolfenstein 2 on there is weird. Gonna be weirder when Final Fantasy 7 hits Switch next year.

I'll give a shout-out to the terrific software lineup at Atariage.com, who are doing a fantastic job of supporting the classic game systems. Mappy on Atari 2600 is definitely a GOTY contender. Runners-up would include Defender of the Crown on Atari Jaguar and Track & Field on Colecovision.

On Sega Dreamcast, Battle Crust is a new vertically-scrolling arcade shoot-em-up that looks and plays great. Ghost Blade was also given a re-release on DC this year with a cool new cover design. On Genesis, Tanglewood is a brilliant 2D platformer with excellent cartoon visuals and was created by a team of Genesis-era veteran programmers.
