Gamescom 2018 has been and gone, delivering a week chock-full of video game reveals and demos. There was a hell of a lot to process and it’s incredibly likely that you missed a bunch of significant announcements. Thankfully, we had our eyes glued to our monitors for the entire week, keeping track of every little gameplay snippet and trickle of new info. Now it’s time to take what we’ve learned and compile a list of the top 20 games at Gamescom 2018.
From Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and its impressive boss battle, to the glorious graphics boasted by Cyberpunk 2077, Gamescom 2018 had something for everyone. Whatever your preferred genre, this event was guaranteed to pique your interest.
Those are the top 20 games at Gamescom 2018. There were many other titles doing their darnedest to attract our attention, with dedicated panels, booths, hands-on demos, and more, but the above 20 games are what stood out to us the most.
It might seem difficult for Gamescom to follow an event like E3, but this year it really delivered. While there weren’t as many AAA reveals, we did get a lot of confirmed release dates to look forward to, and there was a lot of gameplay to watch. As we enter the winter months, closing in on those end-of-year releases, sometimes a nice chunk of unedited footage is all you really want. Add in a passionate development team giving in-depth commentary on the various new features and mechanics, and the combination makes for more substance.
Though we’re in the final stages of 2018, there are still a number of key gaming events to look forward to. Even with the generous showcases seen during Gamescom 2018, you can be sure that these developers still have a few tricks hidden up their sleeves. Here’s to many glorious games releasing before the year is over!
