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!

    Angry Alligator rampages to PS4 and PS5 November 30

    Welcome to the swamp – a beautiful and quiet place. Well.. until the humans arrived and ruined everything. Tomorrow, on November 30, Angry Alligator will finally be launching on PlayStation 4 and be backwards compatible with PlayStation 5. So are you ready to become an alligator  – and hungry for some adventure? It’s time for gator greatness.

    Life as an alligator

    In Angry Alligator we wanted players to do something they probably have never done: experience life from the perspective of an alligator. To make the player feel what it’s like to be both an adorable  – vulnerable  – baby gator and a vicious big reptile, we’ve spent a lot of time making it behave as realistic as possible, within its stylized world. Players will be able to choose one of four different kinds of gators to experience their swamp adventure and go on a path of revenge.

    Become the biggest, baddest gator

    However, it will be too early to go after some humans right off the bat. As a small baby gator, you’ll first have to fill your belly with some juicy frogs, tasty squirrels and other small prey to get your grub on. Explore an open world filled with creatures to meet and eat and discover plenty of secrets. As you gain enough XP and nutrients, you’ll grow into a bigger and badder version of yourself and be ready to take upon a new mission: scare the living daylights out of some humans.

    Mess with humans

    Nothing is more fun than taking proper revenge. Especially when it’s towards pesky humans taking over your beloved swamp. As an evolved gator, you can: lure them unknowingly with loud music, wear a wig or hat to disguise yourself and blend into their pack, pull them through toilets or surprise them with an explosion. Nobody invades your swamp and gets away with it.  

    That’s about all we can share for now. We look forward to seeing all of you explore the swamp and grow out your gator. Of course, as you’re the hero the swamp needs, we’re also dying to know how you’ll exact your revenge upon the humans. The fate of the swamp lies on your scaled shoulders. No pressure.

    See you later alligator – on November 30!
