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!

    Overwatch's Halloween Terror Skins Are Awesome This Year

    Overwatch’s best event (at least when it comes to skins) is Halloween Terror, and it’s back! If you boot up Overwatch between now and November 3, you can once again take on challenge missions in Junkenstein’s Revenge, and unlock Halloween-themed skins along the way.

    This year, Junkenstein’s Revenge is divided into three weeks of missions. Week one’s event is called “Vengeful Ghost, Fenzied Stampede,” and true to the name, players are chased by a ghost with Zomnics that move faster. Week two’s event is “Volatile Zomnics, Three They Were,” which is a three-player co-op experience with exploding Zomnics. The final event is “Mystery Swamp, Shocking Surprise,” with some enemies spawning shock tires on death, and heroes changing at random.

    Running in parallel with the co-op mode, Blizzard is also introducing three Weekly Challenges that push players to net nine wins in each week to unlock unique skins. Week one’s skin is Fantasma Sombra, next up is Stone Brigitte, and the last one is Ragdoll Echo (which I think is the best of this year’s Halloween skins).

    The Halloween festivities are rounded out with five other legendary skins that players can unlock in crates and with gold. The skins are Karasu-Tengu Genji, Dai-Tengu Hanzo, Werewolf Winston, Flying Dutchman Sigma, and Shin-Ryeong D.Va. You can see all of them in the gallery below.
