A list of retroactive recipients of Polygon Recommends

The best games of 2018

Hollow Knight Team Cherry
Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 as editor-at-large and is now editor-in-chief. He also created and occasionally teaches NYU’s Introduction to Games Journalism course.

We’ve launched a new reviews program called Polygon Recommends! You can read more about the project in this letter to our readers. Long story short, we’re getting rid of review scores. The games that we believe all of our readers should watch or play now will receive a Polygon Recommends badge.

To help clarify what gets a badge, we’ve decided to retroactively award Polygon Recommends to games we’ve reviewed in 2018 that would have received the badge at the time of publish:


Dead Cells

Rocket League at 3 years

Hollow Knight

Sea of Thieves post-updates and expansions

Octopath Traveler

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Lumines Remastered


God of War

Nintendo Labo - Variety Pack

Civilization 6: Rise and Fall

Shadow of the Colossus

Into the Breach

Monster Hunter: World
