My Favorite Games from 2018
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth
It should come to no surprise that my favorite game I purchased this year was World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. I had actually taken quite a long break from World of Warcraft. Especially after Warlords of Draenor and Legion just didn’t quite meet my expectations. However, returning back to the world of Azeroth has become one of my biggest highlights this year. Not only did I start playing one of my favorite games again but I also finally convinced my best friends to start playing. Now, they don’t play nearly as often as I do but I still really love that the option is there is we want to hang out and do something fun.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls
Diablo III is my husbands favorite game so when I discovered that the Reaper of Souls included a new character (the Necromancer) we just had to buy the upgrade. Which also resulted in us upgrading from the PS3 version to the PS4. Over the last month, we’ve played this game almost every night and are loving the subtle changes to the maps and the new loot options. In addition, I think the Necromancer is my new favorite class (however, Demon Hunters will remain in my heart forever).
I can’t believe I’m saying this but Diablo and WoW are the only games I actually invested in this year (and are the only games I was committed to playing). There was a week or so this year where I went back to the PS3’s Little Big Planet 2 for an adventure but the rest of my year was focused back in Azeroth.
What games did you play this year and what games do you recommend I try for 2019? I’m wanting to get back into streaming on Twitch so I’d love some free/cheap Steam recommendations.
