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...

My Top 20 Favorite Games

1. Butterfly Soup
2. Gone Home
3. Chop Suey
4. Papo & Yo
5. Night in the Woods
6. Celeste
7. Portal
8. Portal 2
9. Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor
10. Ittle Dew 2+
11. Sword & Sworcery EP
12. Beyond Good & Evil
13. This War of Mine
14. Undertale
15. Ori and the Blind Forest
16. Okami
17. Mirror's Edge
18. Super Metroid
19. What Remains of Edith Finch
20. Crypt of the NecroDancer

Most Preferred Game Characteristics

-quality narrative
-female lead
-retro aesthetics
-creative gameplay

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?

If you like incredibly well done environmental puzzles with a bit of a story:

- The Talos Principle + DLC (don't miss the incredible DLC !)

This is one of my favorite game.

I want another game like This War of Mine.

Do you like disturbing/horror games?

Crossing Souls and whilst not a 2018 game I can't recommend Pyre enough, one of my top 10 games.

Until I saw 2018 I was going to say Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Castlevania Order of Ecclesia and Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, but now.... maybe Atelier Lydie & Suelle?


Nioh and Bloodborne.
Git gud.

Play Cave Story.

You know that thing when you uhhh...and then you...hmmm. But then you have to...umm, Yuh.

I know it's light on in some of the gaming styles you favour but i recommend Journey.
