10 Things that Sucked in Gaming in 2018
We can all look fondly back on 2018 as a year that gave us some truly fantastic games, sequels, and announcements. We didn’t particularly have high hopes going into 2018 after the stellar year 2017 was for the games industry, but we were pleasantly surprised by the surprises around every corner. That being said, it clearly can’t be a year of only great and wondrous events. Scandals, loot boxes, microtransactions, and failed promises crept across our news feed right alongside the groundbreaking news and events we remember so happily. 2018 wasn’t a bad year, but it sure wasn’t great.
