The Besties discover the best game of 2018

Shouldn’t the world’s best games pick the world’s best games?

We’re back! Your friends Justin, Griffin, Frush, New York Giraffe and Chris have returned for the annual tradition of dropping the year’s best video games into a ring and watching them compete in a winner-takes-it-all bloodsport.

For Besties newcomers, the show invites the world’s best friends to choose the world’s best games. It’s had a variety of formats, but currently operates on a yearly schedule, the crew releasing one humongous episode each December. This year’s episode is just about three hours.

You can listen to the show on iTunes or on your podcast app of choice.

The 2018 nominees are debated across the following three rounds:

Round 1:

  • Hollow Knight
  • Into the Breach
  • Celeste
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man

Round 2:

  • God of War
  • Subnautica
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Red Dead Redemption 2

Round 3:

  • Return of the Obra Dinn
  • Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  • Tetris Effect
