It’s time for the 2018 Quarterlies! Vote for Quarter to Three’s Best Game of 2018

  1. Battletech
  2. Rimworld
  3. Slay the Spire


I enjoy reading what others played, and sometimes something I may not have heard of is mentioned and I wishlist it!


Wait, I thought you wishlisted every game on Steam?



Anime, VR, and most visual novels are never wishlisted!


I like seeing everyone’s picks, especially the more obscure ones that I wasn’t aware of (Scavenger SV-4!). I don’t think of them as wasted at all.


@arrendek would you be willing to run a quarterlies maybe with people’s picks of their best games of the last 5 years? That way we can revisit games from previous years that maybe people didn’t have a chance to play in time for the quarterlies. Maybe we could limit the options to the top 10 of the last 5 quarterlies if easier. I would certainly be interested in this.


@buzznaut, your formatting is wrong and the votes won’t be counted. You need to bold just the game name, not the whole line.


I certainly could. The script won’t take much work to adjust to a top 10 and it’s still fresh in my mind so it should be easy to work on right now.


I’d be down for this. I only got around to trying Shadow Warrior long, long after it came out, and I would totally consider it for a spot in some sort of top ten list of the last five years. I didn’t know what I was missing. And there’s other titles I didn’t try until significant sales started 12+ months after a game’s release wh8ch kept them off the timely lists.


I think this is a good idea since it would mitigate the “five games I played” element.

It took a lot of willpower to not vote Castlevania Requiem as my GOTY. Which is partly a testament to how few 2018 games I played last year.

  1. Dead Cells
  2. OOTP 19
  3. Forza Horizon 4
  4. Magic: the Gathering Arena
  5. Donut County


Gamers With Jobs lets people pick their GOTY from any game they played for the first time that year. I think it works pretty nicely.


Yes, that’s what I like about these lists. The AAA games I’m less interested in because they’re well-covered, but hearing recommendations on lesser-known titles is now the main way I buy games. I like to put my own list together for the same reason, despite knowing most are unlikely to be in the running.


Yup. Though I don’t post there that often, I do peruse that thread among others. I personally prefer that, but that may be because I am personally always a few years behind ;)
