As we continue our look back at 2018, we've got a special podcast for you. We got the entire USG team together discuss the best games of the year while looking back on all of the big news and trends [download link here]!
We cover a ton over the course of two and a half hours: Red Dead Redemption 2, Smash Bros. Ultimate, Dragon Quest XI, Celeste, God of War, Spider-Man, Return of the Obra Dinn, and many more. Joining me is the entire USG editorial staff, as well as our excellent guides team in the UK. Remarkably, it's not a total disaster! Please listen and enjoy, and look forward to our complete list of the Top 20 Games of 2018 later this week.

Kat and the entire USG gang get together to recap all of the best games of 2018! From Red Dead Redemption 2 to Return of the Obra Dinn, we argue over what worked, what didn't work, and whether they match up to the best of 2018. Plus, we talk about the year's biggest trends, and look ahead to 2019!
