HalfGen 2018 Game of the Year Winners

A celebration of a year in games...

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again here, games have never been better than they are right now and 2018 is yet another prime example of how great they can be. This time last we thought it would be near impossible for 2018 to match the quality of games we saw in 2017 but it seems developers were up to the task, releasing some of this generation’s finest games, both AAA and indie. Below you’ll find the winners grouped by the voting day along with the respective podcast. Make sure to check them out and listen to each episode to hear just how heated some of these deliberations got.
