2018 has been a remarkable year for the gaming industry that flourished by leaps and bounds. Several games surfaced in 2018 that rocked the arena and drew the public’s attention. Here is a review of a few apex games of 2018 that remained top-of-the-list throughout the year.
Best PC Games of 2018
What Remains of Edith Finch
What Remains of Edith Finch is a story-driven game that was developed by Giant Sparrow in 2017. At present, the game is available for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One users.
The game features a character, Edith Finch, the only survivor of the Finch family. Her tribe was alleged to be cursed, and all members of the Finch family died in unusual and mysterious ways, leaving only one member behind to carry on the bloodline. As you advance in this two-hour game, Edith Finch tells you about her childhood, and you have to explore her native home where she has returned to investigate the death cause of her relatives by visiting their homes and bedrooms. Ultimately, she discovers the cause of her family’s demise. The game portrays overwhelming scenes, and the story keeps you too involved―not letting you take your hands off your keyboard before you end.
What Remains of Edith Finch was awarded British Academy Games Award for the Best Game 2017. The game also won Best Narrative category award at The Game Awards 2017 and the 2018 Game Developers Choice Awards. This game is available for 8.19 USD, and you can download it from HERE.

You assume the role of a Watcher who is capable of looking into other’s souls and read their memories. As the game begins, Eothas, the god of light and rebirth, awakens and violently attacks other people’s souls. Watcher, also affected by the attack, manages to survive and finds Berath who offers to restore his soul.

Best Mobile Games of 2018

PUBG was developed by PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of Bluehole, and released in 2017. At present, the game supports Android and iOS operating systems.
As you enter the game, you find yourself in a battleground where around 100 people fight to survive. Remember The Hunger Games movie?

You find weapons and vehicles in the game to fight for your survival. The game features outstanding graphics that overcome your mind entirely.

All the sequels feature escape puzzles where each room has unusual objects, and you have to solve the puzzle to make your way out of the room. Solving one puzzle lets you enter another room with an enhanced difficulty level. You have to keep solving until you get out of the building.
The Room has won Apple’s iPad Game of the Year award in 2012, BAFTA Best British Game award, TIGA Best Game Design award, and several others. This game costs around 1 USD, and you can download it from HERE.
