2017 was, in my opinion, the best year in the history of video games as a medium! I've spent much of my gaming time this year just playing and replaying the metric ton of outstanding titles released last year. Alas though, there has been so much catching up to do that I've resultantly kinda lost track of what new has been going on in gaming in the last few months and am in the market for something new; something 2018. I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in helping me find something that's been released this year so far that might be of particular interest. Any new games you (anyone) would recommend that I try?

If it helps decipher what my preferences are...

As you can see from my top 20 list, no game needs to have all of the above qualities per se. The above are just general preferences. Anyway, is there anything new (2018) along these general lines that you (anyone) would recommend that I check out?
