My Year In Gaming: 2018 Edition

Wow! What a year it has been. There has been a total of eleven (nearly twelve) My Month in Gaming blog posts and this post is going, to sum up, my favourites from those posts from throughout the year.  Instead of doing a top ten games from all of the My Month In Gaming posts I have chosen just five from those posts that have stood out to me the most this year.

These games could be any that I’ve mentioned on the blog throughout the year and it doesn’t have to be a game that was released this year. Without further ado, lets take a look at those games.

The Sims

The Sims has had a brilliant year. With even more brand new and exciting content players have seen a number of new packs added to the PC/Mac version throughout the year. With Seasons, Get Famous, Jungle Adventure and a handful of Stuff Packs as well as free content updates too. This year has easily contained some of my favourite new content. Not only that 2018 was also an amazing first year for The Sims 4 on console and also The Sims Mobile as well. I’m looking forward to what The Sims team have in store for the game in 2019.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn was the first game that I played when I got my PlayStation 4. Although I’m still yet to fully complete it (mainly just need to play through the downloadable content) I’ve loved what I have played of the game so far. The story, the characters, the graphics. There is just so much about this game that I love. I’m glad that it was the first game I got to experience on PlayStation 4 and hope to see either more downloadable content for the game or even a sequel to this one.

Rainbow Six Siege

Rainbow Six Siege is another game that I’ve had lots of fun with playing with friends. While I’m still pretty bad at the game compared to others I am still learning the different characters and maps. Not only that but I’ve had some great moments in matches and having friends to play alongside me and also teach me about the game has been a great help.

Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV is actually a game that I have well and truly got myself lost in.  After completing it on Xbox One I went ahead and picked up the PlayStation 4 Royal Edition version of the game. I’m currently in the progress of replaying the game again but I’m also focusing on taking the time to do a lot of the things I missed when I first played. Things like side quests and just generally exploring the game. There is so much about this game that I love and although most of the upcoming downloadable content has been cancelled the game itself for me still has plenty to offer.

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is still one of my favourite games to play on the Nintendo Switch and also one of the first that I played when I originally got the console. Although I have played Splatoon 2 a lot throughout the year and also the Octoexpansion that released earlier this year it’s not the main reason for Splatoon 2 being mentioned in this post. It’s more to do with how the game introduced me to a wonderful Twitch community that I am proud to be a part of and being able to interact and watch the streamer and the community grow.

This streamer is a lovely and amazing person called Yukon.

Yukon streams weekdays between 12pm and 3pm UK time. Streams usually consist of ranked matches and viewer battles which are always very popular to take part in and also loads of fun too.

So that’s it. My year in gaming. There were many things that I wanted to write about and games that I wanted to include but who knows how long I would have been here if I included absolutely everything.

Here’s to where the gaming world takes us in 2019!
