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!

    “I’m incredibly honored to become listed on Temple Hill and New Line in bringing this beloved classic to the screen,” Kassell said. “While 1939 musical is section of my DNA, I’m humbled and exhilarated by the duty of re-imagining this type of legendary tale. The opportunity to look at the initial themes-the search for courage, love, wisdom and home- feels more timely and urgent than ever before. They are iconic shoes to fill profoundly, and I’m wanting to dance alongside these heroes of my childhood once we pave a newly minted yellow brick road.”

    The beloved children’s book was published in 1900. The story inspired 13 additional Oz books and was famously adapted in 1939 with the Judy Garland-led, Oscar-winning classic musical feature The Wizard of Oz.

    Previous screenplay drafts were reportedly compiled by Darren Lemke and the duo Neil Gavin and Widener James.
