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!

    Nick Grant Skydives in VR, Explains Favorite Storyline on 'Dreamin' Out Loud'

    Returning with the follow-up to his Return Of The Cool debut, Nick Grant recently released his latest Dreamin’ Out Loud project stacked with tracks. The skilled MC stopped by Fuse for a virtual reality check all while discussing the 14-track album and how it feels to be in the conversation of some of the greatest MCs.

    With a virtual reality headset over his eyes, the lyricist dives into his latest “full of dynamic storylines” project. Admitting his fear of heights and virtually sitting on a plane filled with men equipped to skydive, Grant discusses his favorite storyline on the mixtape. 

    “My favorite storyline is about black women and the women that raised me in my life,” says the 29-year-old before to asking to be thrown out the airplane. “You know all women in general, but, you know, this was me just basically being therapeutic about the women that helped changed my life and raised me.”

    The South Carolina native also touches on the current state of hip-hop, how it took a while for him to adjust to the “state of the game” and his fans comparing him to other heavy-hitter rappers like J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. 

    Watch Grant try to conquer his fear of heights and go through one hell of a VR experience above. Below, throw it back to 2013 when J. Cole explained being “really hurt” by negative reactions to single “Let Nas Down.”
