The Best Games of 2018 (Halfway Point)

It’s that time once again in which our staff pulls together to come up with a list of our favourite games of the year so far. Obviously, with the hundreds of games already released in 2018 already, nobody at Goomba Stomp has had the time or stamina to play through every single one of them. With that in mind, we hope this list comes in handy. Not only does it reflect the tastes of our writers and what games we’ve enjoyed playing during the first half of 2017, but we hope it will inspire some of our readers to catch up on some of the amazing titles that they might have missed.
