2018 was a massive year in gaming and our SA Gamer Game of the Year awards was proof of that fact. There are many categories that had the team battling it out behind the scenes and we saw several readers agreeing or disagreeing. We all have our favourite games and not seeing it win a category, we believe it should, is heart-breaking and often annoying. Therefore, we put the vote in your hand and, surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?), it looked very much like the outcome of the official SAG 2018 Game Awards outcome.
God of War walked away with the spoils, though it was a hard-fought battle with Red Dead Redemption 2 throughout the voting period. Both games were always within 10 votes of each other and it’s only in the last few days that God of War pulled away a little bit further. It seems that opinions were very split on the two games. Spider-Man caught a few votes in its web, with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Forza Horizon 4, Far Cry 5 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate all within one or two votes of topping each other. One thing is for sure, 2018 had something for everyone.
We’ll be detailing the games for January 2019 tomorrow (even though we are already in that month) as it’s looking like this year is already up to its sneaky tricks, by releasing so many great games you just can’t keep up with. If our 2019 game poll is anything to go by, 2019 is going to be massive.
Here is the final outcome of the 2018 Game of the year poll, as voted by you:
