As many expected at the 2018 Game Choice Awards Monster Hunter: World which was released for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One back in January ended up being named the “Best RPG Game” of the year. It does not come off as much of as surprise that Monster Hunter: World was named the best RPG of 2018 especially considering how much mainstream attention the game has received throughout the year. Also, Monster Hunter: World has managed to sell over 10 million copies within this year alone which speaks volumes on how popular Capcom’s game has been throughout 2018. The visuals for Monster Hunter: World are simply stunning and the game has been praised by various critics for its online multiplayer gameplay which allow up sixteen players.
While online co-op multiplayer gameplay that supported up to four players was one of the many features that made Monster Hunter: World an Action-RPG worth having it should be noted that a local multiplayer mode was absent within the game. But despite, not having local multiplayer gameplay Monster Hunter: World has still won the award for “Best Co-op Game” at this year’s Golden Joysticks Awards back in November. Seeing how successful Monster Hunter: World has been since the start of 2018 there is no doubt that this title deserved to be named the best RPG of this year.
