Video games are a form of escapism, and this was a year we needed that more than ever. It’s great that 2018 had some amazing games, from the beginning all the way through until the end. There was something for everyone to enjoy and spend upwards of 100 hours playing. While it made the task of formulating a list of the best games of the year especially difficult, this is a good problem to have.
If you didn’t think you’d hear the words BATTLETECH or MechWarrior in 2018, or 3018 for that matter, rejoice. Harebrained Schemes and original BATTLETECH creator, Jordan Weisman have made a tabletop experience on PC. MechWarrior is known for being a shooter series, and BATTLETECH is thought of as a tactical game. Each embrace the space opera in different ways, but BATTLETECH‘s return sees events unfold with exciting twists and turns. BATTLETECH sits well in the house of Paradox, and cements its place as being the premier tactical series that’s been long overdue for a revival.
