This year's The Game Awards had some great reveals! We asked our staff to take a look at them and decide what their favorite The Game Awards 2018 reveals were.
Surprising no one, Hello Games' The Last Campfire reveal was my favorite. After their troubled launch of No Man's Sky, which started its hype train at the Spike Video Game Awards 2013, it feels like things have really come full circle for the developer, after two straight years of intense development and subsequent improvements on their game.
I'm torn between The Outer Worlds and The Last Campfire. One appeals to my addiction to the Fallout universe, the other to my love of kawaii puzzle adventure games.
I've got a few favorites. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is resurrecting one of the best kart racers of all time. Psychonauts 2 finally got a nice lengthy trailer. And that Mortal Kombat 11 reveal was all sorts of gory and exciting, even if I wasn't too particular to the song used.
It was Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for me. I love SMT games and expected more first-party characters in SSBU, not someone who only appears on a Nintendo system thanks to Persona Q2!
I'm betraying the people a bit on this one but I was 100% shook when Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was revealed. I thought that series was dead and buried, and we'd get some kind of wilted mobile spiritual successor at best. But there it is, and it's even developed by Team Ninja so the implications there are wild too. I'm going to love running through, beating up baddies, and hopefully unlocking all kinds of extra costumes and nods to Marvel history. It's a bummer that it's a platform-exclusive on the Nintendo Switch, but as someone who loves things like portable action-RPGs, well, it's a wrap.
