If you’re one of the few ones who prefers to stay indoors, get a crate of Mountain Dews and game all day, then 2018 is the best year to get fired, get rejected and put that energy back into gaming. Here are a list of the top games to keep you hooked in 2018:

Far Cry 5

Everyone who is familiar with the definition of Insanity knows that Far Cry is a big deal. And this March, Far Cry travels to a pagan sandbox called Hope County, where a violent father is expecting sacrifices. Mixing elements from Sons of Anarchy and retaining every inch of the insane storytelling of Far Cry, FC5 is your first reason to stay indoors.

Release Date: March 27

Red Dead Redemption 2

Although there’s a Part 2 in the name title, Red Dead 2 goes a few years before the real Red Dead. You discover the birth of the Dutch gang and the rise and fall of John Marston. But most importantly, it’s been 8 years since RDR. Expect a lot of changes and a vast prairie land, from the guys who make Grand Theft Auto!

Release Date: Spring, 2018

Code Vein

Bandai Namco are known for primarily three titles – Pacman, Tekken and Dark Souls. The last one makes an immediate impact if you’re following up with the progression of Code Vein. The game throws you in a world of monsters and vampires as you Van Helsing your way through, of course with a lot of ‘You Died’ moments. This game looks like a sequel of Bloodborne, with combat closer to the Souls series.

Release Date: Late 2018

Days Gone

Combine a bike quest with a zombie infested world, and you get Days Gone. If you’re a fan of Daryl from The Walking Dead, then this open world survival game is just for you. The game is exclusively coming to the PS4, so you better change console priorities or stay loyal.

Release Date: 2018

God Of War

The genre Hack and Slash is symbolic to three words: God. Of. War. It’s true that the original Kratos died at the end of GOW3, but in 2017 he has re-emerged in the Nordic islands. So, who will fall this time to the original god slayer? Thor? Loki? The answer will be out soon.

Release Date: Early 2018

Anthem

When Destiny the original was released, I had the same amount of excitement around the concept of a fallen Earth and a group of sentinels risking to restore the balance. Anthem is an upcoming title from BioWare {the guys behind Mass Effect and Dragon Age} and focuses on an online, open world full of beasts and exosuit-empowered Co-Op friends. On paper, it’s Destiny meets Titanfall.

Release Date: 2018.

Spider-Man

Who doesn’t like the friendly neighborhood hero? Only the ones who aren’t on PS4 yet. Spiderman is conceptualized by the guys at Insomniac {Resistance Series, Sunset Overdrive} and is coming exclusively to the PS4. The game is being hyped for a massive open world, Spidey’s vertical movements, the inclusion of a bunch of villains from the original series and some cool take downs and fluid Arkham style combat.

Release Date: 2018.

Crackdown 3

Crackdown is a big deal if you’ve played the previous editions on the Xbox, and this one just keeps getting the hype even more. The release date of this game has already been delayed by 2 years and now we can’t contain. Crackdown 3 is an arcade style, open-world carnival of sci-fi, explosive gun-play and an agent’s hunt to track down every remaining scum on earth.

Release Date: 2018 {Fingers crossed}

Detroit: Become Human

Director David Cage and Quantic Dreams are known for making games that move people and make onions cry. An asymmetric storyline that moves basis on decisions that a gamer takes, the duo has given the critically acclaimed Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls in the past. In this game, you play as Androids who are trying to fit into a noir, cyber punk world.

Release Date: First half of 2018

Death Stranding

If you’ve seen Black Mirror Season 3’s Playtest, you’ll know how whacked in the head Hideo Kojima is. He is a perfectionist when it comes to Game Development. Death Stranding is his ‘F U’ letter to Konami Studios and stars Norman Reedus (Daryl of TWD) and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) apart from Director-Actor Guillermo Del Toro. The gameplay is vague but we definitely expect a Game of the Year contender when it’s finally out.

Release Date: To be announced, 2018.
