This year we want to start soon to review what is the best thing that video games are leaving us. So far we have already been able to enjoy some real gems, we still have several possible jewels ahead. The fun we will not miss in 2018 with the best games of 2018.
So, let’s start the review of the best video games of 2018 on PS4 (exclusive and multis). In addition, we will take a look at the titles that are to come and that we look forward to in the coming months.
The best games of 2018 already available on PS4
Of the games that have gone on sale for PS4 so far this year, these have been the best for us (they are in alphabetical order):
‘A Way Out’ has become one of the best games of the year on its own merits. The game of Hazelight, written and directed by the great Josef Fares, is capable of offering an interesting story that is also told superbly. What the study has achieved, both at a narrative level and as a playable experience, with an amazing cooperative, is to frame. Not to mention it comes at a reduced price (Amazon, for example, is 29 dollars) and that with a single copy can play two people even online.
‘Light blue’, for me and for many others that I know think like me, is the best independent game that has come out so far this year. I am sure that when we make our lists of the best games of 2018 once the year is finished, it will be filtered in all of them. 2D platforms, high difficulty, magnificent history, endearing characters … An absolute jewel.
Ok, it’s a remaster and not a completely new game, but that does not mean we should leave it out of a list like this automatically. And for those who have never ventured into the saga, do not hesitate for a single moment: ‘Dark Souls Remastered’ is essential. And it also has a price of 45 dollars on Amazon. It is one of the best games of 2018.
I know, what David Cage with video games is quite special, but hey, after having played and enjoyed ‘Detroit Become Human’ we can say that it is a very good game. The best of Quantic Dream to date. Futuristic ambiance, self-conscious androids and a lot of weight in the narrative (how not) are what it offers. On Amazon is for 68 dollars.
Arc System Works has managed to create with ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ the best fighting game based on ‘Dragon Ball’, of that there is no doubt whatsoever. It is demanding if it is what you are looking for, but it also includes a series of mechanics so that any player can have fun fighting with their favorite characters in the series.
It is likely that the release of ‘Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of a lost past’ has been more modest than that of other major productions, but what is clear is that it is an adventure that no passionate about JRPGs should miss and that, undoubtedly, should be on this list of the best PS4 games. It’s on Amazon for 62 dollars.
We waited for ‘Far Cry 5’ with desire and in the end, it turned out to be as good as we had imagined. As we tell you in our analysis, we are facing “an adventure with a story with memorable moments that will go down in the history of video games and that is a most addictive experience, its end will leave you speechless”. It is one of the best games of 2018.
The new ‘God of War’ is so far the best PS4 exclusive of the year, without a doubt. The work of Cory Barlog and Sony Santa Monica is worthy of framing. Not only have they managed to create a good ‘God of War’, but they have left the tonic that was the saga and has achieved a great game within the reach of very few studies. Excellent. You have it on Amazon for 69 dollars.
The first ‘Guacamelee!’ We already thought it was very good, but this ‘ Guacamelee! 2 ‘ has been able to raise the bar with a good handful of news … and memes. A high-flying platform, a very well-adjusted difficulty, crazy humor in abundance, a fabulous artistic section and the possibility of playing it with three other players in a local cooperative are some of its strong points. An authentic delight that nobody should miss. It’s on Steam for 23.50 and on PSN for another 23 dollars.
Without a doubt, this ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ by Insomniac Games has become one of the best games of the year, and in the best Spider-Man video game of all those that exist. The very good story, good combats and a system of balancing that has made us forget the fast travel points of the map to enjoy good walks in New York. On Amazon is for 69.77dollars.
‘Monster Hunter World’ is, without any doubt, the first great video game that 2018 has given us and it is postulated as a strong candidate for GOTY. There is a lot of ahead and there are very good games in sight, as you can see right here, but Capcom has done a really excellent job.
‘Shadow of the Colossus’ is a masterpiece, the example of how to make a remake in conditions. It offers all the good of the original in a new packaging according to the current generation of consoles. An authentic wonder that, moreover, has gone on sale at a reduced price. In Amazon, it is for 40.55 dollars, for example.
Lara Croft has returned this year with a new adventure. Specifically with the closing of the trilogy dedicated to its origins. And he has done it with the darkest and most spectacular delivery of all. Despite having a fairly regular script, exploration, action, and puzzles look better than ever. And not every day triggers one the Apocalypse. In Amazon, it is for 72 dollars. It is one of the best games of 2018.
The lovers of the games of puzzles, in this case in the first person and with a great narrative component, have in ‘The Spectrum Retreat’ one of the best proposals of the year. Its science fiction story is attractive and mysterious as few, and the mechanics based on colors to solve the different challenges are very well designed. He’s on Steam for 15 dollars, PSN for 15 dollars and Xbox One for 15 dollars.
Valkyria Chronicles 4
‘Valkyria Chronicles 4’ is one of those games that perhaps deserve more attention than they have. In this installment, we have a new history, new units, bigger maps and more possibilities of action. If you know the saga, you will enter suddenly. If not, it can be a good way to discover it. In Amazon is for 63.80 dollars. It is one of the best games of 2018.
Maybe it is not the best installment of the saga, but that does not mean that ‘Yakuza 6’ is one of the great games that we have enjoyed so far this year. There are few titles on PS4 that are so entertaining and complete.
The most anticipated PS4 best games in 2018
During the months ahead, a good number of video games will come out, without a doubt, and here we select both the exclusive and multiplatform ones that we look forward to most on PS4 (ordered by launch date):
This year we will have a new ration of assassins thanks to the new ‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’, which in this case will take us to ancient Greece.
Release date: October 5, 2018 (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
If the Internet does not explode with the release of this second installment, you may never do it. ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ is the most anticipated game of 2018 without palliatives. Point.
Release date: October 26, 2018 (PS4, Xbox One)
Price: 73.09 dollars
This ‘Fallout 76’ is going to be the first online title of the series and is creating some uncertainty about whether that will take away much of the usual formula or not. In any case, there is no doubt that it is among the most anticipated of this 2018.
Release date: November 14, 2018 (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Not for its bizarre proposal, ‘Biomutant’ has crept into our list of desired games. A post-apocalyptic RPG of kung-fu with an open world where we control a kind of mutated ninja raccoon, is not it enough to want him to play hard?
Release date: 2018 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
More interesting games that will come out in 2018 for PS4
In addition to all that we have highlighted, we compile here another good handful of games, both exclusive and multiplatform, that will come out during 2018 on PS4:
Darksiders III (PS4, Xbox One, PC – November 27)
Dreams (PS4 – In 2018 unspecified)
Mega Man 11 (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch – October 2)
Psychonauts 2 (PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One – In 2018 unspecified)
