Reader Discussion: What Is Your Game Of The Lustrum?

Here in the Game Informer offices, we have begun the 2018 Game of the Year discussions. It's a tense time, and the competition this year is fierce, but we're very practiced at it by now. We know how the process works, when and where to pick our battles, and when to apologize when we get unreasonably angry. This familiar time of the year prompted me to pause and reconsider something for a different 'best of' exercise.

What is your favorite game of the last five years. Adding four years to the time frame sets up competitions like Witcher III against Overwatch, or even surprising mash-ups like Sunset Overdrive versus Spider-Man.

If you need some help figuring out what came out when, you can follow the links for our 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 game of the year awards. This year, I assume, is already on your mind.

Stefanie Joosten performed and was the model for the character Quiet in Metal Gear Solid V.

She will be playing the character, Sööma, which you can see in early concept form below.

In the press release announcing her involvement with the character, studio director Enric Álvarez cited her involvement as a collaboration, which makes it sounds like it's more than just an acting gig for Joosten.

PUBG Mobile Teasing Collaboration With Resident Evil

Today is the last day of the 2018 PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile Star Challenge Dubai finals, and to celebrate the event, the official PUBG Mobile twitter account teased a mysterious upcoming collaboration with Resident Evil.

The teaser video accompanying the tweet shows some footage from the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake and specifically calls out that game in its closing moments. Whatever this collaboration is, it's safe to assume it os connected directly to that game, as opposed to just Resident Evil in general.

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu And Eevee's Soundtrack Is Now Available On iTunes

Starting in 2013, Game Freak figured out it would probably be a good idea to start putting all of its Pokémon game soundtracks on iTunes. It must be working out pretty well for the developer, because it has generally been keeping up and releasing each of their games' accompanying soundtracks online. Thankfully, Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee are no exception.

You can grab the soundtrack here for $9.99. For our review of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, head here where Brian Shea said, "Town and battle themes have been reworked and sound great."

Bethesda Permabans Homophobic Group In Fallout 76

There's been a lot of news surrounding Bethesda's new multiplayer Fallout game lately, most of it bad. Between rumors of a class-action lawsuit and accusations of false advertising, the publisher has had its hands full dealing with fan response. A new story about the people in the game, however, is one of the more disturbing things to come out from the game.

(Warning: The following story does its best to avoid using strong language, but it is unavoidable in some instances. Content warning for homophobic slurs.)

A Fallout 76 player named AJ tweeted out a video last night tagging Bethesda support showing harassment they received by players. In the video, AJ is confronted by a group of other players lead by a user named NathanTheHicc. Nathan's beef, judging from his voice chat comments, is that he was there to kill AJ because he's gay.

We’re getting close to December and a lot of the editors are starting to work out their games of the year list. That means many of us are trying to catch up on Red Dead Redemption II. It looks like the other most popular game this weekend is Pokémon Let’s Go, which seems like the furthest away from Red Dead you could get.

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Let us know in the comment below!

Javy Gwaltney – I’m traveling this week so in my free time I’m working on becoming the best Pokémon catcher and completing my season journey for my monk character in Diablo 3. Those great rifts are no joke!
