In gaming, it is far more of a tradition for me to look back than forward, mainly because I just don't play the newer games. But for once, I think I will take a look forward.  Be forewarned, this article won't necessarily be about games that are coming out in 2019, rather what I intend to play over the next year.

Posted under Suprises, If I put the game titles here you may not bother scrolling down


Instead of a "best of 2018" list, I figured I'd toss together a much more accurate "games that pleasantly surprised me that I played within the last year" list, even for games that weren't released in 2018.

Before typing any further I will fully admit that my old, feeble memory banks whine like a first generation PS3 when thinking about yesterday, and go into full-out Dreamcast lumber-saw grinding if I even try thinking about last week, so recalling anything from a year ago isn't too likely.  Thus, please forgive me if most of the games on here that came out in 2018 are from the tail end of the year.  Anywho, onward!!

2018 was another good year for gaming, with a lot of big, highly anticipated released like Red Dead 2, God of War, and Spider-man... none of which I was interested in playing. Here are my favorites of the year; they're mostly smaller, less well-known games, but all of them are excellent!

The Sears 1991 Wish Book. The stuff dreams are made of.

Sometimes, a fond old memory can come rushing back to the forefront of your mind with such force that, you get a similar endorphin rush experiencing that memory as you did when it was happening to you the first time. Good memories of a departed loved one spring to mind, and you're instantly transported back in time to a happy memory of you and them, and you get that warm, safe feeling that makes you smile. Perhaps you had a favorite sports personality as a kid, and meeting them to sign a baseball or take a photo with them was a highlight. Years later, you find that baseball in a box in your parents' basement, or come across that photo in an old album, and the memories come rushing back, giving you that same big smile you had when it first happened. For me, I have very fond memories of lying on the floor of my grandparent's living room, next to my younger brother, quietly perusing the Sears and JC Penney catalogs my grandparents received in the mail.

To me, 2018 was a great year for gaming with sequels to long-dormant franchises, new takes on old classics, and open world games where traversal is half the fun. As the year draws to a close it's time to reflect upon the games that made an impact on me in 2018. I have collected my top five games for 2018 and will discuss why they matter to me below.

2018 was a weird year for me, with some high highs and low lows. On the broad scale, the world continues to be....what it is. We'll just have to see how things go there. But for me it was a year of rebuilding, one in which I had a plan. Kind of a one step back in order to make two steps forward thing. Thankfully, I was for the most part able to achieve what I'd set out to do. Not necessarily in the ways I'd hoped or expected, and there were some bumps along the way, but the last few months of the year were pretty great, and my efforts were met with reward.

What does this have to do with games, you ask? Well, unfortunately, the work that needed to be done took a toll on some things. I didn't read as much as I wanted, I didn't game as much as I wanted, and in the last month or so in particular I unceremoniously withdrew from quite a lot of things to make sure I ended up where I wanted to be, one of which being the video game golf tournament on this very website. Still, I was able to make it out to RetroWorld Expo 2018, which was a fantastic trip, the RFCinema feature I started was met with success, I had a great time taking part in the Doom 2016 playcast, and I was pretty proud of the content I was able to produce for RFGen. And while my list this year is more of a "Top 8 Games of 2018 and Top 2 Games of 2017 That I Didn't Play Until 2018", I did manage to play some great stuff. And that's what it's all about, getting all the enjoyment we can from the time that we have. So here's to putting a bow on 2018 and making 2019 all it can be! Let me know what you think of my selections in the comments below.

While I really didn't intend on playing so many new titles this year and instead wanted to focus more on my backlog, I ended up falling into the trap of acquiring and playing as many new releases as I could just like I did in 2017. However, many of these games were great, so I certainly don't regret spending my time with them. Now that the year is over, I wanted to share my overall thoughts on the games I played. Instead of just focusing on a top 10, I decided to rank all the games I played that were released this year. If any noteworthy titles are missing from this list, the reason is simple: I didn't get around to playing them!

Sakura Wars is a long running series of tactical role playing games that was created by Red Entertainment, who has shared most development credit with Sega. Its first release was in 1996 on Sega's Saturn, however this series would remain in Japan. Sega would release four games on its own consoles, two each on the Saturn and Dreamcast. Its fifth entry would release on Sony's PlayStation 2 in 2005, long after Sega finally called it quits on their own hardware. This would be the first game in the series to release outside of Japan, with its original PS2 release localized by NIS America for North America in 2010. The game's later Wii port would be released in North America and Europe at the same time as the PS2 localization. Its design history and mixed reception seemed to have lead Red and Sega to both give up on the series, until a recent announcement of a game called Shin Sakura Taisen in 2018, or New Sakura Wars in English.

I planned to make this post a review of the original Xbox version of Dead to Rights. I picked up a copy after I saw it was part of Xbox One's backwards compatibility list. I started to playing the game and immediately was blown away by how good it looked on a modern television. When you put a compatible original Xbox or Xbox 360 game in your Xbox One, it doesn't play the game off the disc but rather downloads the game to your hard drive and uses the disc itself as a form of DRM. Sure, it's just an up-rezed game from the sixth generation, but Dead to Rights looked so clean and sharp it made me really excited to play it. Not to mention, the main gimmick of the game is the main character's dog Shadow, who can be used in certain sequences to rip the throats out of the hapless thugs who were stupid enough to mess with you.

*pic by pwnpocalypse on imgur*

September 28, 1996.  A date that I would remember throughout my life as a red-letter date:  The evening that I picked up my most anticipated console since the Super Nintendo, that being the Nintendo 64.  I left work early and played it until the dawn's early light.

December 13, 1996.  A date that I would remember throughout my life not only as a red-letter date, but later with a kind of  nostalgic sadness.  It was the day that the Nintendo fanboy inside of me died.
