This has been one heck of a year when it comes to awesome video games so here are the top 10 games we rated in 2018.

Dead Cells

After earning our Indie Game of the Year award, you can trust that Dead Cells is a phenomenal gaming experience. From its tight and rewarding gameplay to its mind-blowing stage design, Dead Cells has everything you'd ever want in a 2D action game.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom

Here we have another award winner as Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom won our Retro Revival of the Year. This revival of the Wonder Boy franchise is packed with gorgeous sights and sounds and incredible retro gameplay that'll keep you hooked for hours.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

As our Action-adventure Game of the Year, Shadow of the Tomb Raider allows Lara to take out her enemies in clever new stealthy ways to create a consistently thrilling adventure. Even after the credits roll, there's still a ton more to do in its phenomenal open world.

Astro Bot: Rescue Mission

Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is our PlayStation VR Game of the Year and it's also one of the best recent 3D platformers. Mastering its elaborate stages and taking down the awesome variety of bosses is so much fun that anyone who owns a headset needs to play it.

Burnout Paradise Remastered

Burnout Paradise Remastered may not have won an award this year but it's still an awesome adrenaline-fueled racer that holds up perfectly over a decade after its initial release. I can play Burnout Paradise for hours at a time and not get even slightly bored.

Dark Souls Remastered

Speaking of top-notch remastered games, Dark Souls Remastered brought back my personal favourite Souls game in a wonderful way. Reliving every grueling boss fight and taking in the classic environments again was nothing short of an awe-inspiring experience.

Very few boss fights are as epic as the one with Great Grey Wolf Sif

Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter: World won our Action RPG of the Year and here it is again as one of the highest rated games of the year. Its addictive gameplay and vast amount of content will keep you playing for dozens of hours. Plus, the co-op mode is superbly implemented.

Castlevania Requiem

That's right; our Classic Console Compilation of the Year is that good as Castlevania Requiem combines 2 of the greatest 2D games ever created. It may not be the best port of these titles but the games are so amazing that they make this a must-own collection.

Shadow of the Colossus

Although there have been a couple remastered games already, Shadow of the Colossus is our Remaster of the Year and now, it's our runner-up for Game of the Year. The original was brilliant, the HD edition was even better, and Shadow of the Colossus for PlayStation 4 is the best way to play it yet with gorgeous visuals and even tweaked gameplay that's more enjoyable than ever.

God of War

God of War walked home with our PlayStation 4 Exclusive of the Year and AAA Game of the Year awards already so unsurprisingly, it's our overall Game of the Year 2018! Do I really need to say more about this must-have game? It elevated what open game worlds and 3D action gameplay can become so game developers have a lot to live up to in 2019 and beyond. Congrats, Santa Monica Studio!
