Gaming Trends for 2018

Nothing is more exciting to gamers everywhere than the release of new games, new systems, and other fun new things to do in the gaming world. 2018 has some great and exciting items coming onto the market for us to be excited about. We’ll help walk you through all the exciting new releases so you know what to expect.


The Rise of Flash Game Popularity

Everyone loves a good flash game and we feel like 2018 is definitely going to be the year of the flash game. Games like Super Smash Flash 2 are easy to pick up at any time and they’re free. These games are increasing in popularity because people are realizing they’re a fun way to pass the time without being too involved. You don’t have to be one of the biggest gamers around to have fun with flash games; you could have never touched a game in your life and still have fun with these.


Future Consoles

2018 definitely has some exciting new consoles hitting the market as well. The new PS5, for example, is set to release sometime in the latter half of 2018. The official release date is still a little foggy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for it. The PS5 is definitely coming and exciting things are in store. Other leading gaming companies are working on their next generation of consoles, but most of their release dates aren’t until 2020. Needless to say, if Play Station can actually get a successful version of the PS5 on the market before this year


Hot New Games Coming to Play Station

Most of the exciting new games scheduled for release in 2018 are for Play Station, Xbox, and PC but there are a few that are focalized to just the PS4 and maybe PS5 systems. Days Gone, for example, is an incredibly horrifying zombie game in which the enemies haven’t actually come back from the dead, but rather have been infected with some sort of disease that triggers zombie-like symptoms. This game is not only fun and a little scary, but also challenging. There are even points in the game where the enemies will be clouding the entire environment and all you can do to save your life is run.


Hot New Games Coming to Xbox

Xbox actually has more exclusive releases this year than the other gaming systems. Notably, Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, and State of Decay 2. The last in the list, State of Decay 2, is another zombie game that is quite terrifying and challenging. Sea of Thieves is a fun, family-friendly pirate game with good graphics and fun and challenging gameplay. Crackdown 3 offers the unbelievably awesome opportunity to get to experience being a super-cop. The open-world design allows for fun and challenging gameplay that’s sure to keep you at it for hours.


Revamped Classics Set to Release in 2018

Each year there are several classic games that are remastered and re-released for the newer systems so the next generation can enjoy them as much as their parents did. This year, however, companies are re-releasing some of their classic gaming systems. Both the Commodore 64 Mini and the NES Classic are hitting the shelves once again, now with the ability to be used on your newer televisions. The NES will include thirty built-in games including some of your favorite classics and a controller designed with the original controller in mind. Commodore 64 is set to be a miniaturized replica of the classic machine. It’s reported to be half the size of the original gaming system and to have authentic graphics. The release of these games is sure to make you feel overwhelmingly nostalgic while you school your kids at your favorite games from when you were their age.

Nothing is more exciting to gamers than the announcement of each year’s new releases and this year is no exception. From consoles to games, we’ve covered it all. Hopefully, you’re as excited as we are for the 2018 releases. While the games being released are pretty much set in stone, the PS5 is still not confirmed for a definite date in 2018 and the classic gaming systems have been pushed back before. Only time will tell if we’ll for sure see some of these exciting new consoles before the year’s out or if we’ll have to wait even longer to get our hands on them. Whatever the case, there are still several things to be excited for that will be hitting the market in the next year.
