SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2018

With 2018 finally upon us and everybody seemingly back to work, we can breathe a sigh of relief that 2017 is finally over.  And if you’re not, that’s completely fine, because 2017 had more great games than you can imagine, and there’s no way anybody that enjoys video games actually put all the time they wanted to in their full slate of 2017 releases.

All that aside, it’s a new year.  There are more games to look forward to, and at that, there are a bunch of surprises along the way.

I asked the staff to give me a list of their most anticipated releases of the year, and this Top 10 list is the culmination our lists.  Unlike our Game of the Year tabulations though, we didn’t add any weighted value for each rank.  We simply listed our favorites and broke ties wherever they occurred.

We did our best to choose games that we believe are safe bets to release this year, but of course there’s no way to actually predict the progress each game has reached with the development houses they’re a part of, so yes, delays can happen.

One thing’s for sure: we didn’t put Death Stranding on this list.
