God of War or Red Dead II? Drafting The Best Games Of 2018

Click to watch embedded media While the internet may be more familiar with fantasy sports such as football or baseball, that doesn't mean the gamers of the world can't have a little fun too. From God of War to Red Dead Redemption II and everything in between, join Game Informer as we pick the best games of 2018 and form the ultimate fantasy teams. But how does the process work? The panel of Ben Reeves, John Carson, Kim Wallace, Alex Stadnik, and Alex Van Aken have assembled to select five games apiece from 2018 to create the most robust roster possible. After randomizing the draft order, each person will have time to decide. At the end of the round, the order reverses, and the fun continues from the fifth person back to the first. Sounds pretty standard, right? You can fill your list with as many great games as possible and create the video game equivalent of the 1990s Chicago Bulls. That's where you're wrong. If you've played fantasy sports before, you're well aware that picking players in the late rounds can get rough. In that spirit, each panel member in today's video must select one title off Metacritic's list of the worst games of 2018. In a year of such high highs, it's incredible how low the lows can get. But why are we drafting games like this? Just for fun? Why no, for the community validation, of course! That's right, folks. You get to vote on who has the strongest list. Be sure to head over to our Discord to select the editor with the strongest list, and we'll read the results on this week's episode of The GI Show! Thank you so much for your participation and please let us know what you thought of the segment in the comments below!

    Watch Zaytoven Whisper His Life Story Using ASMR

    Producer and pianist Zaytoven recently stopped by the Fuse office to try his hand at ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response), a growing trend of inducing relaxation by tapping into sounds and movements. Using a highly sensitive microphone, he whispered his way through a riveting ASMR storytime session about his career path.

    Switching on a pair of clippers, Zaytoven explains that he was a barber in his early days. “A lot of my clients, they fall asleep ’cause they hear this buzzing sound. Now, I’m a big-time producer, so I can’t cut hair anymore. They call me Zaytoven ’cause when I make my beats, I play the piano.”

    After regularly performing in church, Zaytoven eventually found himself making trap beats in Georgia. In honor of the “Peach State,” he meticulously starts slicing a juicy peach, making sure we hear every detail.

    Despite finding success producing for Usher, Nicki Minaj and Migos, the 38-year-old decided to drop his own solo album of hits. Whipping out a gift-wrapped copy of Trapholizay (out now!), he loudly unwraps the album before going into tour life (cue the crunchy Hot Cheetos) and his family (cue the squeaky baby toy and squishy Play-Doh).

    Below, watch Zaytoven collaborator Lecrae discuss the impact of “I’ll Find You,” working with Tori Kelly, and the need for more positivity in art:
