The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2018!

    I'm fully aware it's not objectively the best game of the year.

    I don't see why not. No need for you to sell it short really.



  • I haven't played Octopath Traveler, only its first demo. Despite it having several big "no" for me (it looks old, it feels old, it's isometric RPG, it's on Switch), I was considering playing it for the story. But I've skipped its launch and after learning that its story isn't that great I've dismissed it entirely.



  • @axel I think you said it best. And although It's only third on my goty list. Octopath Traveler is the game I will remember most fondly. The sequel to this game will be number 1 on my desire index list.



  • @bard91 if you picked VC4 as your GOTY it is definitely going to be on the list. How high I don't know but Top 15 it is now since I don't see it appearing yet.



  • @tearju-engi oh that's good news, I was honestly expecting it to not be very popular so, I was expecting few votes for it, hence my reaction



  • @bard91 I enjoyed it a lot. Would have tried to platinum it were it not for stupid RNG that goes to obtaining some weapons and tank parts. It had that one part that really blew in social media and might have put many people off to play that game but it's a solid experience most of the time.



  • I didn't expect Octopath Traveler to be on this list.

    I really need to play it!

    It's really good. On that note, I need to get on and play VC4 lol.



  • @sheria Same for me!

    I'm playing through Valkyria Chronicles II right now after I finished that I will start 4.



  • @neocweeny if only it weren't on the damned PSP



  • me and my cousin co-oped VC2 a lot. Made it easier since we got an extra person in and it was fun to play with a friend. You can also play it on Vita but not sure how ad-hoc works in that, maybe the same. It had some cool ideas. Sure anime trope was heavy but what really annoyed me was escort missions which were a quite a lot. Also needing an extra command when changing the map. I actually hope they remake it with VC4 system someday along with VC3 which is considered the best.

  • Just downloaded the Octopath demo to see how I feel about the vibes. Pretty sure I'll love it, but need to finish some other games before I jump in!



  • I'm really enjoying my time with VC2 even if it is on the PSP.

    Since you don't have to complete every mission to go the next month, the escort missions are the ones I'm skipping.

    Yeah, I do hope they will still release VC3 in the west at some point.

  • I'm so tempted to get this right now, in the mood for some jolly platformer. Never played the PS1 games too.



  • I platinumed all 3 games but wasn't enough to be in my top 8



  • The trilogy was a really satisfying return to 20 years back. Such a great way to relive a lot of memories, still remembering surprisingly much of all the secrets and techniques and even lines of dialogue. And it all looks so gorgeous now, the way your memory tells the originals looked like. Loved the colourful worlds in the middle of the darkest time of the year here in the north.



  • Alot higher than I expected this. Don't have much to say about it, except hope this game leads to new Spyro games.



  • Played and loved the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. It’s almost impossible to not like it, but I just enjoy the PS1 games more.

    I do like the dynamic music system that 90% of games use nowadays, but I kinda also liked the infinite looping song from the original trilogy.

    I LOVE the new character designs but the unity between levels in Spyro the Dragon kinda makes the new characters stand out more and get repetitive. It’s a weird complaint because I’m complimenting how good they look but I kinda wish it was less faithful and changed up the enemies more.

    It’s weird. I love absolutely everything about it except a few voice changes. Spyro 2 is my favourite in the series but those intro and outro cutscenes have way less charm on PS4 when I still enjoy them in the PS1 version. It’s like, yes, it’s an amazing game, but for whatever reason, I prefer the PS1 classic versions. I think it’s a game series that wasn’t really dated so it didn’t need a remake but I hope it brings us more high quality Spyro instead of the dark age of Spyro we got from 2002 until now.
