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!

    Mike Morhaime Launches Dreamhaven With Other Blizzard Veterans

    Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime (who also served as president and CEO) officially left the business this past year. Today, Morhaime revealed he is reuniting with a lot of his Blizzard peers in a fresh gaming venture: an organization called Dreamhaven.

    According to the announcement, Dreamhaven will “create and publish original games for players all over the world.” To perform that goal, the ongoing company has generated two development studios called Moonshot Games and Secret Door. Both of these are led by an extraordinary set of industry veterans with extensive experience at Blizzard, including games like Wow, Starcraft II, and Hearthstone.

    You can read more concerning the staff and each studio’s goals in Dreamhaven’s announcement. Despite the fact that no actual games have already been announced yet, this is really a thrilling development – specifically for fans of Blizzard’s previous work.
