It is now time for Kotaku Splitscreen’s Game of the Year discussions. Except we don’t really want to pick a Game of the Year. We want to pick every Game of the Year.

As has become annual tradition, this week we’re going back and talking about all of the games we played in 2018. Kirk, Maddy, and I go from January through May, mostly discussing games that came out this year but also tackling a handful of older games we happened to play.
