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.
Two Point Hospital is a game that puts you in charge of running a network of hospitals and making medicine available for all the weird ailments people have, and tries to outdo your competitors in every way. This is a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital, which was released in 1997. Since then, a sequel has been eagerly awaited, despite it being unlikely to happen as the years went on. Helmed by the original creators, Two Point Hospital takes Theme Hospital‘s place to be the worthy, goofy, and silly simulator successor it should be.
