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!

    Learn About The Oregon Trail's Origins In New Documentary

    The Oregon Trail was a favorite in computer labs across the country in the ’80s, but its story begins even further back. If you have fond memories of crossing rivers, going hunting, and dying of dysentery, then you will want to check out a new documentary about the origins of the classic piece of educational software.

    Created by MinnMax, the documentary is called Trailheads: The Oregon Trail’s Origins (YouTube). It features interviews and anecdotes about the program’s creation, as well as interesting context about the state of computers, technology, and education in the ’70s.

    At the beginning of the video, MinnMax founder (and former Game Informer video producer) Ben Hanson explains that the company is using the documentary’s launch as an opportunity to hold a charity drive benefiting New Vision Foundation. To donate, click here.

    The Oregon Trail was the flagship title for MECC (Minnesota Educational Computing Corporation). For a broader look at The Oregon Trail and other games you may remember playing (like Lemonade Stand and Number Munchers), read our piece about the rise and fall of MECC featuring interviews with various employees from different eras of the company’s history.
