It’s increasingly rare that a video game I know next to nothing about will just pop out of nowhere and steal a few weeks of my life away from me. That’s probably a good thing considering how bad I’ve become at keeping a schedule on this website. But thanks to Xbox Game Pass; the gift that keeps on giving, I stumbled upon a game from Lab Zero Games that grabbed me up and kept my interest: Indivisible.
Onto the main meat of this here event. Normally I’d spend this first entry talking about the past 12 months and give the gist of my video game habits, allowing for some small insight into what might be coming in the next ten days. But this time I ended up writing an entire post dedicated to my justification for me not playing as many games this year as I used to. But hey, I still played enough to actually feel bad about the games that didn’t make the list, all three of them.
So, that means you know every game on here is going to be a good one. There’s not going to be any pity entries like a mediocre Halo game this year, oh no. We’re starting off strong and only getting stronger as they days go by. Y’know, how these kind of lists are supposed to work. Without wasting any more time let’s get cracking onto the number ten slot in my top ten favourite video games of 2018.
It’s been a relatively sparse summer in terms of video games. After weeks of nothing of particular interest, suddenly we find ourselves drowning in games. All of which seem to fill the same niche. “Metroidvania”, “Roguelike-like” and “Procedurally Generated” are the common terms linking a great many number of them, but of them, only one has managed to stick out and actually capture my interest: Dead Cells.
