So after 10 days of counting down the Top 10 Best Games of 2018, we're finally at Number 1. And who'd have thunk it? Well, all of y'all, we reckon.

Which is to say we're about 100% confident that after we revealed which game came in at Number 2, you all probably properly guessed which game came in as our AusGamers Game of the Year for 2018 in position number one. But, let us follow through with tradition.

Previously on AusGamers' Top 10 Best Games of 2018...
10. Forza Horizon 4 -- A weather-infused, speed-laced, car-addled off-road jaunt through lush British countryside and cobble-stoned towns and villages. And with seasonal changes, to boot.

9. Ashen -- A faceless, alt-fantasy action-adventure Souls-like sandbox experience that touches and challenges in equal measure. A perfect Indie darling.

8. Assassin's Creed Odyssey -- A Mediterranean feast full of exploration, fantastical history and violent wonder. Spartan kicked its way onto our list, with gusto.

7. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate -- An interactive Nintendo and videogame museum, if the exhibits were alive and disliked each other so much, they literally needed to smash one another. Absolutely filled to the brim with playable content.

6. Unavowed -- A point-and click adventure and classic BioWare RPG all wrapped up in an engrossing, dark, and emotional supernatural tale set in modern day New York. Pixel-perfect.

5. Frostpunk -- Survival in the post-apocalypse still means building. Or rather, rebuilding. Civilisation needs order and the only person who can do that, and make the tough decisions for the betterment of those still alive, is you. Frostpunk is both deep and depressing, yet still carries with it a sense of hope. A unique city builder that grips you unlike anything else.

4. Yoku's Island Express -- A side-scrolling, pinball physics-based action-adventure starring a dung beetle who's taken up a job on a remote island as its new mailman. If that description doesn't excite you, you don't deserve to play it. One of the year's best Indie releases.

3. Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire -- Taking the Pillars series into new waters, specifically, pirate-infested waters, gave it more a refreshing taste than anything salty. We're now heavily invested in seeing what they do as a wholly bought Microsoft Game Studios studio.

2. God of War -- Boy!, what a story this is. We mean, Boy! this tale of a father and his Boy! going on a Boy!hood-like adventure really brings out the Boy! in all of us. Unless you're not a Boy! at which point we still say it'll bring something out in you. Boy!
And now, the moment even we've been anxiously waiting for: Please click here to read the complete list of our Top 10 Best Games of 2018.

RDR2 left me conflicted, it was brilliantly written, easily the best writing I've ever seen in a game, but the gameplay was very average. It was a clunky, frustrating mess; its like they couldn't decide if they wanted to make an action/adventure type story driven game, or an open world cowboy sim, and they ended up somewhere in the middle and achieved neither. Its a 10/10 story trapped in a 6/10 game
