I didn't play a lot of new games this year and the ones I did I mostly thought were in the 'Good not great' range like Octopath Traveler and Sonic Mania. Hard for me to pick a best.

Looking at the way lists are going, it's looking like a real dogfight between God of War and RDR2.

Spider-man is probably going to end up 3rd with Celeste, Tetris Effect, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Smash Bros and Florence all having strong showings.

I'll post when I finish the year-end update.

I did a preliminary run a few days ago (not finished adding all the end of years lists yet, but I was curious) and here is where 2018 games currently stand within the 1000:

350 God of War
448 Monster Hunter: World
463 Celeste
509 Red Dead Redemption 2
551 Spider-Man
575 Into the Breach
706 Forza Horizon 4
770 Assassin's Creed Odyssey
784 Tetris Effect
855 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
943 Return of the Obra Dinn
957 Florence
959 Sea of Thieves
974 Far Cry 5

Kinda surprised at Far Cry 5 getting so high, but I think things will settle and that will be kicked out. Return of the Obra Dinn will probably climb and I think Florence is hindered by being a mobile game as not a lot of lists necessarily include those in deliberations.

What do you guys think of the rankings thus far?

Haven't played much of them, so don't have too strong an opinion about it, but Smash Ultimate seems very low, but that is obviously because it came out rather late.

All the RPG fans love Octopath Traveler. It's a nostalgia game but I'd still expect higher placement for that and DQXI.

I'm nowhere near done with the 2018 list update, but will get there eventually.
