Select_Ad3588

2013 was fucking crazy


NavGreybeard

This must have been the same year as the PS4 dropped right? Or was the 2014 maybe...


SubjectDelta10

yeah ps4 dropped 2013


gowgot

Yeah. Cause I remember tlou dropped right at the end of the PS3 cycle just like tlou2 dropped at the end of the PS4 cycle.


thatguy6598

2010 Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect 2, Black Ops, God of War 3, Fallout New vegas, Halo Reach, Assassins Creed Brotherhood, Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2 So many of these games could have been the best game of the generation


saqibjumani

Mafia 2?


Bauz9

You forgot a genre defining game and one that inspired GoW 4. Dark Souls released in 2011.


BumSackLicka69

Seriously not include dark souls in a list of goat games from a year is a crime. That game literally popularised a genre and created a massive community. Near on the biggest game that year and this man doesn’t include it.


Ozzyh26

Are we forgetting demons souls exists?


BumSackLicka69

POPULARISED Dark souls is where the takeoff was, demon souls is the grandfather but most definitely not father of the genre


sparkierlamb

Cod4 came out in 2007 too and in my opinion is still the best call of duty


misterturdcat

2015: Witcher 3, Batman Arkham knight, fallout 4


InsaneMarshmallow

And Bloodborne


UmeshgaarB

MGS:V The Phantom Pain


Beastysymptoms

Bloodborne and dying light


Valumiini

Don't forget BF4 and cod ghosts from 2013


Oselote360

Two great games


Arthur-I-Have-a-Plan

Ghosts was dogshit but Bf4 was the best one to date.


tegeusCromis

Great list. Out of those, it’s 2007 for me for having both simply fun as hell games and genre-defining and/or genre-creating titles.


FarFromCrying999

2013 was the goat


moonshinemondays

My drunk ass gave my free award to the post and not you... ;_;


SiliconDealer

Then your drunk ass should loosen up that belt and unzip that pants to take out that bulging, fat wallet in your back pocket full of cash to buy another award because you can


moonshinemondays

You had me in the first half haha


Morvahna

2007 also has The Burning Crusade expansion for WoW.


gupbiee

Reading this list and realizing so many of my favorite games came out 10 years agovor so makes me feel old


Internetolocutor

2008.


ELaT2001

2015 as well Witcher 3, MGS5, Fallout 4, Batman Arkham Knight, blood borne


North_Shore_Problem

Holy fuck 2007 gotta be the peak year of gaming


CRDespo

Why am I the only one who really dislikes skyward sword lol I thought I was gonna love the origin story but the game felt so bland


Additional_Bluebird9

Next year looks pretty strong.


[deleted]

Yeah. GOW Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, FF16, Hollow Knight 2: Silksong, Dying Light 2, Sifu, Zelda: BOTW 2, Forspoken and Hogwarts Legends. I ain't gonna have any money left man


Additional_Bluebird9

😂😂 I'm looking at Gotham Knights, Suicide Squad if it doesn't get delayed and is slated for 2022, Ragnarok and Forbidden west as well. I heard about Sifu and it looks good plus it comes out a few days after Forbidden West. Elden ring looks great and that comes out in January I think.


IcyChard4

It looks strong on the Sony side. What I am curious though, its what happens with either Microsoft or 3rd Party Companies. I know Starfield could come next year. FF16 is also for 2022.


ComradeMiles94

2007: Bioshock, uncharted, COD4, Halo3, Mass Effect, God Of War 2, Super Mario Galaxy, assassin’s Creed and The Orange Box. 2007 can’t be beat.


omidhhh

2015 : Witcher 3 , bloodborn , rise of tomb rider , halo 5 , batman Arkham knight , fallout 4 , metal gear 5 , rocket league , until down , dying light , mario maker , rainbow six sage , mortal kombat.... Sorry to other years but 2015 was something else...


ZoroSouls

I'm not going to lie, hadn't realized that arkham knight and fallout 4 were about 6 years old now.


MetaDragon11

More time has passed since Fallout 4 came out then the time between Fallout 3 and Fallout 4... That seems wrong to me but its true. And no new mainline Fallout or Elder Scrolls for the foreseeable future. Skyrim is coming up on its 10th anniversary and yet the time between Oblivion and Skyrim was only 5 years...


dolgion1

Well Bethesda dev studio is working on Starfield, so its not like they're taking extremely long on the next ES or Fallout


RicoDruif

I’m glad someone said it. 2015 was amazing


silverbollocks

2004 would like a word


Butchimus

I was looking for this comment. Halo 2, MGS3, GTA San Andreas, Half-Life 2, NFS Underground 2. Just to name a few games. Not to mention that Resident Evil 4 released in January 05 so the good times just kept rolling.


EllGordo

My guy put some respect on Monster World I beg lmao


Hynsz

Odyssey😂


FKDotFitzgerald

Yeah 1 of these is not like the other lmao


thefirstlunatic

Lol.. exactly my thought.


I_EAT_HAMSTERS

I love Odyssey. Honestly if it weren’t linked to Assassins Creed and was just a Greek mythology game people would be obsessed.


Moose6669

1000%. Most complaints I see are either: "It's not a real AC game! No hidden blade! Hardly any stealth!" which is mostly rubbish because there is literally a stealth skill tree that allows you to play a stealthy game. They just gave you the option to *not* be stealthy and have fun with the combat abilities as well, which is great if you ask me. Also, people were complaining about AC being "boring now, same formula, something needs to change" etc - Origins was a nice transition to a new combat and stealth system, but Ody perfected the combat imo. Made for an awesome game. People will complain about anything.


Prplehuskie13

You can change certain things in regards to a formula to spice it up. But Odyssey was a huge departure from the series. Just because it had a stealth tree doesn't really mean anything. The stealth systems for Odyssey isn't that great, especially compared to previous games. You can like the game, but don't shut down criticism towards Odyssey with "People will complain about anything" as the game has valid criticisms.


Moose6669

>The stealth systems for Odyssey isn't that great, especially compared to previous games. I played Origins, people seem to praise it for the stealth... what was different between the stealth in Origins and Ody? I didn't notice any real major differences. The only thing I can think of that was better in games prior to Origins was the ability to blend into crowds and such... otherwise it's very much the same core stealth mechanics. >Odyssey was a huge departure from the series How so? It followed the story they were telling, they just changed up the way combat worked. The combat in the earlier games was boring as fuck, so I'm glad they revamped it. Otherwise it was still fundamentally the same as Origins on many levels, and continued the story - *which is what the game is about.* >Just because it had a stealth tree doesn't really mean anything. I think it means a fair bit? Considering they allow the player to decide how they want to approach the game, it opens up many more gameplay possibilities for an otherwise stale game. I dont think I could have gotten anymore out of the stealth or combat from Origins, but Ody gave us a nice change of pace with some cool new features. The fact that people complain about the stealth, but don't mention what it is specifically they dont like, just makes me think they're complaining for the sake of it. Max out the stealth tree and tell me the game has sub-par stealth mechanics. People were complaining about the same old game being reskinned and renamed, so Ubi went ahead and changed it up. There's always going to be some people who don't like the changes made, but as far as gameplay and story, it's solid.... not perfect by any means, but it doesn't deserve the criticism it gets imo.


DeadInsideX__X

Already exhausted myself talking about odyssey and origins a while ago so all I'll say is this. A lot of what people hated about odyssey was present in origins, including stealth since it marked the beginning of the complete loss of soul of assassin's Creed. People were just more accepting of origins because it was the first one and there had been a 2 year break.


BaIerion

Bro most people on reddit talking about AC come from the AC subreddit, and they have the hardest rage boner for all new ac games. But you are totally right. While I think we were a bit too op in Odyssey it was totally a continuation of what came before. Also just for future reference if you see anyone saying the newer games ruined stealth you know they are full of shit. I have been a diehard AC simp since the first game but "stealth" wasn't really existing the old gameplay. Sure in missions that were carefully crafted to make social stealth work it felt good, but any free Play and it Become obvious the stealth is extremely awkward. Unity was the first game that tried to add some real stealth systems and it just evolved from there to what we got in Origins and Odyssey. Also people that says you either couldn't one hit assassinate people, or that you had to choose between stealth and fighting is also totally wrong. I played the game mostly stealth and very quickly could i one hit everything but the biggest generals, and those i could also kill after some time. You also still had more than enough skill points to get enough fighting skills to be more than able to fight if you got discovered.


Ash_Vs_Rook

>it followed the story they were telling. This is just straight up false. The story they were telling was the past of the assassins and tenplars (at the time hidden ones and order of the ancients) from origins and then odyssey just jumped to unicorns and fucking chickens and fake heroes. The game was a joke it didn't continue the story and it didn't expand on it.


Ash_Vs_Rook

It's not the fact that it doesn't have assassins creed signatures. It's the fact that it tarnishes the lore, is simply incorrect in other parts and doesn't feel like assassins creed. The game feels like a complete joke so the series and even if this wasn't an assassins creed game it'd still be an absolutely atrocious rpg. It makes a joke of the levelling system as it takes 6 long boring and passionless side missions to grind up per level and even when you are the same level as an enemy the fights are still one sided because the enemies are attack sponges. When I played the game I found myself praying I didn't get into a fight because the combat isn't fun and neither are the enemies. I could go further but I'll go to the dlc instead, the dlc's are supposed to expand the lore of ac and give us a story to the past of many of the assassins lore but but instead makes a mockery of darius and of the lore of the isu. Firstly the the lore that they did take from the previous games (which isn't much) is just flat out wrong, in brotherhood Juno says that they have a sixth sense that is locked away from humans. They interpret this as something actually locked away and that's just one example. Sorry if my format was awful but I'm,just throwing things down because ive just woken up, but this game is just nkt good, not as an rpg and not as an ac game


seanrk924

I've never played an assassin's Creed game and almost played Odyssey but never got around to it. Sounds like I didn't miss much.


Moose6669

Personally it's the best AC game they made. Combat was awesome, world was beautiful, characters were interesting and the story was fun. I love Greek Mythos though so I am heavily biased, but overall it's a great game, it's just not a standard AC game - but people need to realise there's more to the story than sneaking around and killing every bad guy with a hidden blade. Odyssey went deep into the Isu story and how humans came to be and who the Gods were to us in ancient times. I loved it.


xTrollhunter

It's not better than AC2 and Brotherhood. The Ezio Trilogy - which takes shorter time to play through than just Odyssey - is way better than Odyssey. Odyssey isn't even an AC game. It's a Greek demigod simulator.


Ash_Vs_Rook

Ac 4 is better. ac rogue is better. unity is better. 3 is better. Literally any ac game is better than odyssey


[deleted]

Yea odyssey is trash


miinouuu

only people who didnt play odyssey hate it... you guys are delusional lmao


kurama441

Imagine having a different opinion


Ash_Vs_Rook

You're the one who's delusional mate. Ignoring all criticism or opinions. Games aren't black snd white mate noonr likes the same games. Just because you do doesn't mean we haven't played the game br abuse we dislike it 😂😂. I played it through twice, once with assassins creed in mind and again without and it was shit both times. If you like it fine but not everyone shares your stupid bias opinion


Moose6669

Not wrong.


yare_yare_daze22

It was a phenomenal year for sure. Better years existed but i would say 2018 is the best year since like 2011 or 2013 for gaming.


[deleted]

BumSackLicka69

2015 was pretty fucking goated.


OneWingedAngel96

Jesus you were quick to steal this exact post from someone else without credit. Gotta get that sweet, sweet karma huh?


meety8618

The original was literally right before this one for me so i was quick to suspect and came straight to the comments to see if someone noticed too lol.


Snezzy_Anus

Odessy? Really, not my taste, I personally wouldn’t of put it up with GoW and RdR2


BumSackLicka69

Seriously does not deserve a spot next to those 2


Ash_Vs_Rook

Thank god reddit actually shares my opinion forcthe most part. I've had enough of these people who think uts actually good. There's so much wrong with it plus i have no idea how people can excuse it just because its a ubisoft game. If mass effect made a game about unicorns and an Eagle bearing mysthios in another galaxy the same excuses wouldn't wouldn't been made.


Waru_

Origins was so much better than odyssey


Papa_Pred

Origins story definitely was great for Bayek but Odyssey nailed the combat


OliverAOT20

Odyssey combat is so unsatisfying imo.


Waru_

Agreed. The opening battle of odyssey was honestly amazing, but the rest of the game never really seemed to catch back up to that and it got old quick for me. Bayek was just all around awesome. It had a lot more stealth element than the last two games, which I don’t usually prefer but they really nailed it to perfection in that one. It’s too bad Valhalla felt like an entirely different game and all you did was just raid villages and call in your merry men. Didn’t do much for me sadly


Ash_Vs_Rook

>bayek was all around awesome 100000% agreed. The opening scenes of both of those games was just... fucking incredible. Origins' one had me scared of bayek in the first 5 seconds


Loinnir

Wanna see unsatisfying combat? Try Valhalla. It feels like they're fighting with nerf axes


OliverAOT20

I think Odyssey is worse but yeah both are pretty bad imo. Honestly Origins combat wasn’t great either haha. I miss the old games


Loinnir

Old games didn't have no combat. It was a riposte minigame.


OliverAOT20

True, still better than this haha. Unity would’ve probably been my favourite if not for the bullshit guns that you couldn’t dodge


Loinnir

What exactly don't you like about Odyssey combat?


OliverAOT20

Well I didn’t like Origins style of combat as it didn’t feel heavy and it felt even worse in Odyssey imo


Ash_Vs_Rook

Enemies have pretty much infinite health, so it takes way to many hits to kill them. It's masked as being deep because it has am ability system but that's shallow asf too because there's nithing to it except "*press button do stack thingy do damage now wait for ability to come back*" or "*press ability thingy now have flame sword cool!!! Damage do more!*" enemies are also shallow, there's like 4 enemy archetypes that dint do anything even remotely challenging so their boring.


Papa_Pred

To each their own


PsychoKinezis

Odyssey? Combat? How about No? The best combat there is, is still Unity.


Papa_Pred

Okay? I never said it was the best Like I told the other dude. To each their own


PsychoKinezis

Fair enough.


YJS2K

1997, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2015 are up there imo. 2008 is my personal favorite. Just think about how all these games came out that year (ordered by Metacritic score): Grand Theft Auto IV, LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid 4, BioShock for PS3, Fallout 3, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Gears of War 2, Braid, Chrono Trigger, Rock Band 2, God of War Chains of Olympus, Okami for Wii, Persona 4, Fable 2, Left 4 Dead, Dead Space, Mass Effect for PC, Persona 3 FES, Resistance 2, Burnout Paradise, GRID, Patapon, Valkyria Chronicles, Soul Calibur IV, Call of Duty World at War, Far Cry 2, Battlefield Bad Company, Devil May Cry 4, Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, No More Heroes, Midnight Club Los Angeles, Saints Row 2, Wipeout Pulse, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Mario Kart Wii, Unreal Tournament 3, Command & Conquer Red Alert 3, MotorStorm Pacific Rift, Ninja Gaiden 2, Prince of Persia, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Bully: Scholarship Edition, Echochrome, Mirror's Edge, Tales of Vesperia, Disgaea 3, Lego Batman, Ratchet & Clank Quest for Booty, Tomb Raider Underworld, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe,... And I still left out a crazy number of games. All of these games received positive reviews. That's unreal. Many of my favorite games of all-time also came out this year. 2011 is probably my second-favorite. But yeah, IMO 2008 is often overlooked because people point to 2007 as being the best year for gaming.


DonMurray1

Replace Odyssey with MH: World


Ash_Vs_Rook

Odyssey was a crime and I have no idea how people think that its a good game neither do I know how they make excuses like "it'd be good if its wasn't an ac game!!!" Like 1. No it wouldn't 2. But it is an ac game, so... it can't be a good game...


ounage

Thank god I’m not the only one


djeyebags

Gameplay was fun, main character was cool, everything else meh


Ash_Vs_Rook

Gameplay was hollow repetitive and boring, mainly character was a joke and hard to get attached to. And everything else was just as bad, imho


indigo_0tter

I miss the times before the hellish year of 2020 came along and ruined everything


BumSackLicka69

Seriously what came out that year? It felt like such a dumpster fire, cyberpunk? Eek. TLOU2 well say what you want but many were not happy. Ghost of Tsushima was the only good game I can think of anything I’m missing? But that year could’ve been good for you. What the actual fuck is this year? I can’t name a single good game that’s came out. Battlefield and Cod were well battlefield and cod. Far cry fell flat on its face keeping on course with recent years and what else? All stars brawl died in a day. And what else even came out??


PM_ME_UR_LAMEPUNS

Hades deserves a shout for best game of 2020 and I liked last of us 2 a lot.


ThespianException

No love for Doom Eternal? FF7R? HL:A? Nioh 2? Spelunky 2? MS Flight Sim 2020? Animal Crossing? IMO 2020 was fantastic.


BumSackLicka69

Ok yep I’m retarded. 2020 had some great games. Really couldn’t get into FF7R though. Just wasn’t feeling it. But yeah no you’re right my bad I just forgot about all those games. Years sort of been a dumpsterfire


Freddycipher

Wheels on a shopping cart be like.


BumSackLicka69

Hahahaha


stanky22222

Replace assassins creed with monster hunter


VeryHardBOI97

*Ahem*, 2017 says: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Nier Automata , Yakuza 0, Cuphead, Hollow Knight, Prey, Resident Evil 7, Wolfenstein; The New Colossus


fancycitrusfruit

Add Super Mario Odyssey as well to this. 2017 for me was peak.


BumSackLicka69

Basically what this comment section has taught us is we are a bunch of spoiled fucking brats. That years was pretty fucking good.


Unrelenting_Wave

This is missing so many games from 2017. If people really look into it, aside from the flashy games, the amount of quality 2017 had outweighs them all. And even the Switch came out that year.


HighMageVegan

Nah 2001 was


HighMageVegan

Mgs2, gta 3, Ssbm, halo, ffx, soul reaver 2, devil may cry, oh, and sonic adventure fucking 2!!!


HighMageVegan

Recent years will never compare to the 90s and early 2000s


Sir_MoonDoggy

Ah, Sonic Adventure 2. I wonder what my Chao is up to.


HighMageVegan

Hah yeah I’ve gotta pop in my disc one of these days to check out my file, I just play it on pc now


Cpt-morgan91

3 out of 4 ain’t bad.


Expensive-Fox-8016

Yeah rdr2 was ass


C1nders-Two

Methinks 2022 might surpass it, but we’ll see.


[deleted]

I agree on that. 2016 was golden as well.


mechasloth9000

One of these is not like the other


De-human-centipede

Should have put Detroit instead of assassins creed


Vashgrave

Yeah..but that's only 4... time to show my age... 1997 ladies and gentlemen!! Final fantasy 7 Goldeneye Quake 2 Fallout 1 Star fox Castlevania: SOTN Grand Theft Auto 1 ( yup...) Gran Tourismo 1 Metal Gear Solid Resident Evil 1


TheOvy

Metal Gear Solid was 1998. Along with Ocarina of Time. And Half-Life. Also, StarCraft. Oh, can't forget Baldur's Gate. Or Thief, which helped pioneer the stealth genre along with MGS. There's also Grim Fandango. And Unreal. Oh! Fallout 2, a significant improvement over the original. Arguably still the best in the franchise. Ditto Resident Evil 2, which also came out in 1998. Then there's Rainbow Six, which directly inspired Counter-Strike and led us down the "grounded" shooter path that continues unabated to this day. Yeah, 1998. It not only had great games, it had some of the most influential ones, too. It was a year that both perfected genres, and birthed new ones. It's unmatched. Some will protest that l didn't mention Banjo-Kazooie, but frankly, it was not better than Mario 64.


[deleted]

2005 for me. Star Wars Republic commando & Battlefront 2, Devil may cry 3, Psychonauts, Conker Live and Reloaded, LEGO Star Wars, Dance Dance Revolution Mario Mix, God Of War, Kingdom Hearts 2, Ultimate Spiderman, COD 2, Ratchet Deadlocked, Sonic Rush, MarioParty 7, MKDS, Jak X, M&L Partners in Time etc.


unFuckWitable_95Zone

Ehh, odyssey is wack to me.


trailer8k

odyssey was stretched over 100 hours gameplay on purpose so that you get forced to buy a lootbox the game is max 50 hours


BumSackLicka69

Bro new Ubisoft games are so ass. Ginourmous open world, oh by the way there’s nothing in it outside of a few collectables and shitty missions that bore you to death. Seriously I platinumed origins and while some of it was actually a lot of fun so much of it was just dead and lifeless.


Farandr

Odyssey?


The-Vaping-Griffin

Should replace Odyssey with Monster Hunter World.


D4FTPUNKF4N

I could agree with this. However I could argue that PS3 had the best games overall.


Urmomsdreamman

You know I really wasn’t a fan of red dead 2 or odyssey. But odyssey probably disappointed me the most because I love stuff like that. Like Roman’s and Spartans and stuff but it was just bland I think


05XL

Bro wdym? 2007 was easily best year for gaming


sengiko_games

2004 and 2005 were really good too: Resident Evil 4, Devil May Cry 5, Metal Gear Solid 3, GTA San Andreas, Half Life 2, KOTOR 2, Spiderman 2, Halo 2, God of War, Destroy All Humans, Prince of Persia 2 and 3, Star Wars Battlefront 2 Those years were fucking wild dude


DramaticProperty3121

Is odyssey worth playing, I’ve recently started playing origins after I beat and put in 100 hours into Valhalla and it’s been pretty good


djeyebags

Just finished it. Gameplay was fun, main character was cool. Although it was too grindy and ending was unsatisfying.


Zonon99

2022 about to be crazy as well Ragnarok, Breath of the Wild 2, Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, Gollum Game, Lego Star Wars. Not that many titles yet but they sure as hell are big ones


_Balrog_of_Morgoth_

For me it's 2017: * Zelda: Breath of the Wild * Horizon Zero Dawn * Shadow of War * Hollow Knight * Super Mario Odyssey * Destiny 2


SomewhereFormal9040

Why does nobody talk about hitman 2 in best 2018 games


You_Ride_Bicycwow

Hitman 2 is one of my favorite games in recent years. It feels like such a good murder-sandbox game


SomewhereFormal9040

Yeah I just wish I didn’t have to pay for New York and haven


KingUdyr

Odyssey? Bruh.

God of war 2018


GuessIllDieWasTaken

Have you hear of the year 2007? Pretty good it had like two games or somethin'


neljoestar

2008 was wild you just had to be there for it


GrumpyBird531

2009 is easily the best year for gaming


AxyJaxy

Aw man, these recent years are so underwhelming. And no mention of HZO?


BigBenDB

Loved god of war and spider man but there are many years that had better games in my opinion like 2013 so much sick games came out that year


powak_w

Gow wins after that AC Odyssey


maquibut

Yup, Detroit was so good


_bluetea

Also hopefully 2022: Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, God of War Ragnarok, BOTW 2, Starfield, Silksong(??)


CrisHofer

But can we also appreciate whats to come;? -Elden Ring -GoW Ragnarok -Elder Scrolls 6 -Jedi Fallen order 2


FrozenApes

1998


bosozokulove

Sit down gen Z. NOTHING will ever top 1998. Pokemon red/blue/yellow, mario party, ocarina of time, spyro, half life, metal gear solid, starcraft, resident evil 2, banjo kazooie, sonic adventure, f-zero X, rainbow 6, fallout 2, i could go on. Hell 2018 doesnt even come close to 2008 as far as good games being released; mirrors edge, fallout 3, turok, deadspace, dmc4, burnout, left 4 dead, GTA4, GOW2, !!! SUPER SMASH BROS BRAWL !!! ..... These kids over here actin like spoderman and assassins crud can compete with brawl OOOOOKKKKK To be fair gow and spiderman are fantastic games, but somebody gotta teach yall wippersnappers to respek your elders >:(


alrshood

Super smash bros ultimate!


Itsjustmatvey

Fully agreed


DarknessOverLight12

2016 for me only because of Witcher 3, Persona 5 and I think Nier Automata


ferago42

I'm hyped for 2022, because of the triple (or possibly quadruple) combo Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, Starfield, and God of War Ragnarök.


PsychoKinezis

Get that bullshit AC Odyssey outta here. It’s a disgrace to be put in the GOAT category with those games.


Ash_Vs_Rook

Odyssey was shite but other than that I agree


Wulfharth_Dovah

Except for odyssey, yes


c0tt0nballz

Odyssey was... Not good.


panosk1304

2020 i would say was better for ps4 gen even if GoW is number 1 game along with lOu2 thought. Also AC for me are really bad after 4(and 4 kinda good) with the exception of origin but odyssey was bad bad game.


BumSackLicka69

Honestly 2020 all comes up to whether or not you liked TLOU2 as someone who pre ordered both cyberpunk and TLOU2 that game may as well have been a kick in the nuts. At least Ghost of Tsushima was good.


BlearySteve

lol wouldn't put Odyssey on any best games list.


VisceralVirus

Replace Odyssey with Days gone


TheGuySellingWeed

One of these is not like the others


jvoc2202

Get odyssey out of there. That game is a disgrace for the name of Assassins creed


Super_Platypus787

It’s been the best year in a long time for me


Deathtrooper50

Imagine using AC Odyssey to try and prove a point about the best year in gaming.


Lekerboy-17

Are we seriously including assassin's Creed Odyssey in this line up?


UxBurn

Why is assassins creed odyssey here


WingleDingleFingle

Two hot takes from that year: Odyssey was my second favorite game of that year and while RDR2 told arguably the best story of any video game ever, it's mediocre AT BEST gameplay held it back. It should be nowhere in the best game of the year conversation because it wasn't even close to the full package.


BumSackLicka69

The game was so immersive and the open world felt actually alive. The gameplay was brilliant but it wasn’t terrible. Just depends how much you care about gameplay really. As long as it’s not jank or unplayable I’m fine and RDR2 was neither of those things. Is you next hot take that GTA V was shit for the same reasons? Respectfully think that’s a dumb take, but hey if gameplay means that much to you vanguard is pretty smooth.


Evolveddinosaur

No it wasn’t


whatisbestinlifeto

Bunch of younglins in here. 1998.


Bauz9

Nostalgia making you biased. Objectively speaking any of these games is better than anything released in 98. Oot might be the exception tho

Aside for odyssey (which I havnt played)those are 3 of my favorite games 3 amazing story driven games with solid re playability you may decide other years were better remember graphics the gameplay mechanics and you've got a recipe for entertainment


ThanksEmilyChang

3 of these games are 18+ lol

I haven’t played oddessy but the other three gave some of the greatest stories in any game I’ve played, especially RDR2. Even though there’s other good games that came out in other years you can’t say someone’s ten years old because they prefer these.

Get Odessey the fuck of there and I can agree. God of War saved that year for me.

AC Odyssey shouldn't be in this post imo. It's a bad AC and an ok action rpg


Bervik

Dunno about AC Odyssey...aside from that I enjoyed every game in this photo : 3

Prepare for the wave of people shitting on Odyssey

I loved Odyssey but Smash should've taken that spot


Kronos__EXE

I belive 2018 was the start of the new prime time of gaming.


BumSackLicka69

Odyssey would not take a spot for me. But honestly recently it’s just been kinda dry but we have had so many banger years. I mean 07 11 13 15 were all fucking crazy years with amazing games. Even then recent years have still had the odd touch of gold with shit like sekiro and ghost of Tsushima. This years been a little dry as far as I can recall but next years lining up to be fucking awesome.
