Article by Matt S. 

Overall, 2018 has been an exceptional year for video games. From January right through to the end of December, there has been such an incredible stream of quality releases on all platforms that it has been incredibly difficult to keep up.

Below you'll find a list of all the award winners in our recent game of the year awards. These represent the very finest and most creative games that have been released throughout the year. How many have you played? And, if there are any on the list that you haven't, be sure to add them to "the list". 2019 is shaping up to be every bit as spectacular as 2018 was, but you never know... you might one day find the time for them.
