Another year, another reflection on another batch of video games… but this year is different. Because 2018 was the best year for video games ever.
Don’t believe me? Take a close look at the chief contenders below and make up your own mind… but watch out, because 2018 was pretty nuts.

Below is a list of the best years in gaming history, all leading up to the spectacular 2018.
