The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2018!



  • I am admittedly not that far in AC Odyssey.. but I am really enjoying it. This is the first AC game I've played since 3 and I love the changes they've made. The combat is fun and dynamic, the writing and quests are good so far and the world is gorgeous.. I think the added rpg mechanics work really well and keep me way more engaged than the previous style did. I really like Kassandra as a character as well.. I'm glad I went with her. Its also nice seeing less assassin lore and future stuff as well.. maybe its just me but I found it harder to buy the assassin stuff and outfit outside of the original setting.. the future stuff was always lame



  • Unpopular opinion, I cared about the present day Abstergo story. I liked Desmond Miles and I was hoping it was leading to him being a present day Assassin. I stopped caring about this franchise when they stopped caring about the story.



  • @iboshow glad to see I'm not the only one, when I cared about AC it was because I was hoping for a great story encompassing multiple games with interesting connections between them, then they decided to axe any plan they had for that (if there was ever one) and just started churning out games, I'll never play another AC, and looking at them it is hard to think I'm missing out.



  • @bard91 The end of Assassin's Creed Revelations is one of my absolute favourite pieces of dialogue in video games ever. It really encompasses what made AC such a cool story. I do like the games post 3, they highlight really interesting lore bits about the game, but that's all it is, lore, and thats a shame.



  • @hazz3r never got to that one actually, I was interested but only got up to Brotherhood, and then I lost all interest in the franchise, maybe something to consider for the future.



  • @Axel You're late

  • Yes! To me this is the golden standard for Yakuza games. A great story, fantastic combat, and some of the best substories and minigames I've ever played. Somehow, a game that on the outside looks so small, is just packed to the brim with content. Also, I'll never say no to more Majima.



  • nice

  • I'm upset that six is lower and a better game



  • yeah. I didn't like this game that much. Majima's combat sucked but payoff was nice even if it wasn't much. Same with the minigame one. Story had nice twists but it felt it jumped all over the place.



  • Propably should've seen this much earlier, but Hitman 2 didn't make the cut. Nor did Dragon Ball FighterZ. I mean the Top5 is now really obvious. And deservedly so!
    GoW, MHW, RDR2, Smash, Spidey. Still excited to see the order.



  • I liked Hitman 2 while I played it. It was my #8 before I've played Thronebreaker (my #6).



  • Our influencers would be proud to see this list.



  • @mbun I'm planning to submit this list as my Q&A question for this month.



  • Personally, I put 6 higher in my list, but I also loved Kiwami 2. I started the series with 4 on the PS3, and am excited for the eventual remaster of 3 to complete my journey with Kiryu.



  • My number 2-4 are now accounted for. I expect my number 1 and 6 soon, but for 5, 7, and 8 to be complete no shows unfortunately.



  • I think my #3 and #2 are an easy lock for the top 3, but my #1 is absolutely gonna be a no-show. I'm not really surprised though, I kinda got the impression I was the only person on this entire forum that played 428: Shibuya Scramble anyway.



  • @hanabi That's alright. You can join me in the corner over there while I play some more Taiko no Tatsujin, lol.



  • @iboshow while I disagree with the specific order they ended up in, I'm very happy that 2 Yakuza titles made the top 10. What a world!

    Like... Six years ago or something, we didn't think we'd get any more of these games in the West.
