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


#352

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


#353

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.


#354

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.


#355

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


#356

Hey everyone! Voting ends tonight (in 13.5 hours?)! So get those votes in!

So far, turn out this year has been much better than last year. The scores are pretty high comparatively.

I have a feeling you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

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

#363

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.


#364

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.


#365

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 ;)


#366

I’m surprised ZeroRanger has any popularity given how hard it is. I’m credit feeding like crazy just to get to stage 5.


#367

I really like that idea too!


#368
  1. Rimworld
  2. Subnautica
  3. Battletech
  4. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I played so much Rimworld (and Oxygen not Included but it’s still early access so it isn’t on the list) there is no 5. Those two games have done wonders for my gaming budget.


#369
  1. Battletech
  2. Rimworld
  3. Slay the Spire
  4. They Are Billions

That’s all I was able to play this year :(


#370

Well, at least you played the best of the best. I don’t see any Shaq-Fus, Agonies, or Fallout 76s on your list. So you’ve got that going for you.


#371

I gotta tell you guys, watching this stuff in real time is a freaking roller coaster.
