6. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
If you are used to Street Fighter and didn’t buy Street Fighter V because of the initial fiasco then definitely look into picking up this one as this is the definitive and best edition of Street Fighter V. Street Fighter V Arcade Edition is a great game and is massive improvement over the original game and that is why it deserves a spot on this list
5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a superb game and is the meatiest Super Smash Bros game to date. It’s filled with content, it’s a blast, and it’s the best Nintendo switch game of the year. Sakurai and the team delivered with Super Smash Bros Ultimate and it will go down as one of the main “must buys” on the Nintendo Switch like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey last year. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a fighting game for both veterans, Nintendo fans and newcomers to the genre. It’s definitely desrrves a spot on this list
4. SoulCalibur VI
Does your soul still burn? SoulCalibur is back with SoulCalibur VI after the disappointing game that was SoulCalibur V back in 2012. Surprisingly Bandai Namco nailed it with this game and this game is the best SoulCalibur game since SoulCalibur III back on the PS2. Bandai Namco has managed to make an impressive fighting game with old and new mechanics and a fighting game that will satisfy everyone.
3. Dragon Ball Fighter Z
Visually striking, insanely fun and just downright fantastic. Arc System Works has created an outstanding game. Dragon Ball Fighter Z is a game that should be played and enjoyed by both fighting game veterans and newcomers
2. Shadow of the Colossus
Shadow of the Colossus can create strong emotions. It makes you genuinely feel sorry for the Colossi’s. Not every game can do this. Shadow of the Colossus will purposely make you feel like a disgusting person. Shadow of the Colossus is a brilliant remake and is by far one of the best looking games to date. This is a classic that should be experienced by everyone
1. God of War
God of War is a stunning, ambitious and top of the class game and is just a technical marvel overall. The amount of detail to the overworld and the character models is honestly just breathtaking. While playing this game I was utterly engrossed by everything, my eyes were wide, and my jaw was always dropping. I haven’t seen a game with such detail since Horizon Zero DawnGod of War is a masterpiece. It’s bold, ambitious and powerful. God of War is not only Game of the Year but a game that will stand among other classics as some of the best games ever made.
Why did God of War win? It’s easy. It had fantastic visuals, an excellent score, brilliant gameplay with lots of content and it was just an extremely fun game in the end. Some other games this year tried to be overly ambitious but ended up becoming a bore and falling apart quite a bit. God of War did not suffer from this. It’s the best PS4 exclusive to date and hopefully, Corey can make something special again.
