LET US KNOW YOUR FAVOURITES FROM 2018

What are your GOTY and TOTY picks?

2018 has been full of many amazing games, tech, movies, TV shows and more. Soon your friends at VERSUS PLAYER will be recording our Game of the Year (GOTY) and Things of the Year (TOTY – totally a real thing) podcasts. Just like last year’s GOTY 2017 AND YOU podcast, we’d love for our friends and listeners to be part of the show too.

The hope here is that we get a few comments below (or emails sent to goty@versusplayer.com) and we can share and discuss your favourites on the podcast.

Below are the categories that we’ll be going through. Feel free to give your picks for any or all of the categories. We’ll give up to a top 3 in each category (and honourable mentions in some cases).

The categories for GOTY are:

  • Picks of Xbox Live Games with Gold games
  • Picks of PS+ Instant Game Collection games
  • Favourite game not released in 2018 that we played in 2018 for the first time
  • 2018 game that tops the pile of shame
  • Most disappointing/worst game
  • Favourite music/score
  • Favourite story
  • Favourite gaming moments (experience, level, surprises, etc.)
  • Favourite character

  • Favourite YouTube channel/video
  • Favourite nerdy purchase (collectables, toys, Lego, game collector’s editions, board games, tech, etc.)
  • Favourite nerdy product released (same things as above)
  • Most anticipated 2019 thing from the categories above (I couldn’t come up with a better name!)

We’ll also start off the podcasts by looking over a few of the big news stories of 2018.

  5. Favourite game not released in 2018 that we played in 2018 for the first time:
    – finally got around to breath of the wild, and it was wild to say the least.
    2018 game that tops the pile of shame:
    – Is there even a competitor to fallout 76?
    Most disappointing/worst game:
    – As above.
    Favourite music/score:
    – Due to sheer immensity, Smash Ultimate. So many great takes on classics and theyre all inspiring in their own ways. its also 6 hours long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aorz_6FRNSk
    Favourite story:
    – Far Cry 5, they really elicited the story in the environment.
    Favourite gaming moments (experience, level, surprises, etc.)
    – Leage of Legends World Championships – the fall of Korea and a western team in finals.

    – Smash Ultimate, I dont think anything can hold a candle to smash for couch games.
    GAME OF THE YEAR
    – Smash Ultimate.
    Most anticipated 2019 game
    – Metro Exodus. Theyre basically combining Metro with Stalker:Call of Pripyat, what more is there to want.
    – Special mentions: Resi 2 and the Surge 2 (Surge 1 was so underrated)

    TOTY:

    Favourite TV show
    – Killing Eve. Thrillride and a half.
    Favourite movie
    – Mandy, once again nick cage shows how no one can tell if he’s a good actor. Completely unexpected, beautiful, crazy film.
    Most disappointing TV show or movie
    – Suspiria, remake of a horror classic. Beautiful film that completely falls apart at the end.
    Favourite YouTube channel/video
    – Vox’s youtube has really pulled their shit together this year – Earworm specifically is a great little series.

    Most disappointing tv show/movie: tv show – Daredevil season 3 (SO boring). Movie – pains me to say this coz I crush on Jennifer Garner so hard but Peppermint was real bad.

    1. Yeah I got addicted to fortnite too

  8. *Picks of Xbox Live Games with Gold games – No idea (#4theplayers)
    *Picks of PS+ Instant Game Collection games – OnRush (for the MotorStorm nostalgia value), TrackMania Turbo, Beyond: Two Souls
    *Favourite game not released in 2018 that I played in 2018 – Horizon: Zero Dawn… Technically I had played this before but this time around I stuck with it for long enough to love it, and hit Platinum.
    *2018 game that tops the pile of shame: Fallout 76 is the clear winner
    *Most disappointing/worst game – The Quiet Man, just all sorts of awful.
    *Favourite music/score – Shadow of the Colossus for atmosphere, Tetris Effect for noise, Alto’s Odyssey to block out the noisy people on the train/bus with a bit of calm.
    *Favourite story – Spiderman
    *Favourite gaming moments (experience, level, surprises, etc.) – Beating that damn Valkyrie Queen is up there, and any number of random encounters in the few hours of RDRII that I have actually managed
    *Favourite character – Mimir, and that Short-Order Chef guy in Spiderman
    *Favourite multiplayer – Gran Turismo Sport if I want to see the VR dust of everyone who’s better than I am. Mario Party, which is completely unfair but fun. Firewall: Zero Hour is a lot better than I expected. Jackbox Party Pack 5 for the bigger groups. Basically anything but Monster Hunter.
    *GAME OF THE YEAR – God of War of course. Duh!
    *Most anticipated 2019 game: The Last Of Us: Part 2

    The categories for TOTY are:
    *Favourite TV show – Room 104, Bodyguard, Patrick Melrose, but for a single episode, the “Inside No.9” Halloween Special.
    *Favourite movie – Bad Times at the El Royale
    *Most disappointing TV show or movie – “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time” was not up to the usual Sharknado standards. “I Feel Pretty” was very ugly, and I haven’t seen “Holmes and Watson” but that may well be the worst of the lot, and the most disappointing given the cast…
    *Favourite YouTube channel/video – Going by my YouTube history, my favourite video was Baby Shark (doo-doo-doo-do-do-doo).
    *Favourite nerdy purchase (collectables, toys, Lego, game collector’s editions, board games, tech, etc.) – Sensibo!
    *Favourite nerdy product released (same things as above) – Kratos and Atreus Pop Vinyl Figures (Thanks Jason!)
    *Most anticipated 2019 thing from the categories above (I couldn’t come up with a better name!) – Nvidia Shield 2019? Failing that, whatever smartphone I buy next.
