For the moment:
1. God of War
2. Spyro The Dragon: Reignited Trilogy
3. SoulCalibur VI

I've yet to start Dragon Quest XI though, which will probably feature somewhere on that list.

Personally I've thought the God of War series was overrated, I enjoyed the sense of scale from the graphics, but I felt the combat was weak compared with other 3rd person action games I enjoyed. I've seen people praise the new combat of the new game, but again the style doesn't seem like the combocentric style I like. I'll see what I think in the future.

(By the way reflecting on last year, because I'm playing through Super Mario Odyssey now. I don't think I could consider SMO a contender against BotW. SMO makes me smile at times, it is innovative in the Cappy mechanics, but it doesn't feel ground-breaking. And similarly, the gameplay while refined still runs into the same issues that 3D platformers do, in terms of camera angles and difficulty knowing where you're going to land. BotW still stands as my 2017 GotY.)

My Top 3 are:

1. GoW (GotG)
2. Celeste (best platformer since probably the SNES)
3. I want to say RDR2 and it probably is based on what they did with the open world alone. But man it can be not fun to play at times and for large portions too.

Bloodstained CotM.

It's like a 7/10 but it's the only game I played from 2018 I think :[

Yeah, it's not a perfect game by any means--the story pacing is awkward, the controls suck in some parts, and there's a ton of glitches. But I definitely had more fun playing RDR2 than any other game I played this year (and I haven't even beat it yet lol).

Also I haven't heard of Celeste but will check it out based on what you said about it. :yes:

Probably a toss up between PoE and Red Dead.  ;)
