The 2018 Completionator Community Top 10 voting has come to a close and I want to thank everyone who participated in the event this year. This year's event was bigger than last year with more people submitting their lists and many more games being voted on. Last year, we thought it would be fun to come up with our own video game awards that you, the members of the Completionator community, could vote on. Unlike other Game of the Year awards, the games people could vote for were for all games ever, not just those released in 2018. The only rule is the vote had to be for a game the person played in 2018.

This year we had 40 people submit votes on 295 different games. The votes were given point values based on how the games were placed in the person’s stack. So first place received 10 points and tenth placed received 1 point. We tallied up the scores and surprisingly, there were several ties so this year's list has several additional games included. Without further ado, we now reveal the 2018 Completionator Community Top 10!

10 - NieR: Automata

Release Date: 2/23/2017
Number of Owners: 294
Average User Rating: 92%
2018 Completions: 21

One of the best games of 2017, winning several awards but didn't make the top 10 list last year. This year it reaches the top 10 by just a hair. You can't go wrong picking this unique RPG up with a 92% overall rating.

T-9 - Forza Horizon 4

Release Date: 10/2/2018
Number of Owners: 10
Average User Rating: N/A
2018 Completions: 0

We have a 3 way tie for 9th this year! The 4th installment of the Forza Horizon series made it to 9th place just a few months after it's release. A surprising fact about this placement is that only 10 people own this game and no one has logged a single completion. If you have the XBox game pass be sure to check this game out in all it's 4K glory!

T-9 - Grand Theft Auto V

Release Date: 9/17/2013
Number of Owners: 804
Average User Rating: 90%
2018 Completions: 17

GTA V actually moved UP one place from last year's list. It's amazing this game still gets so much love 5 years after it was released. Will Rockstar's newest game make the list? Keep scrolling to find out.

T-9 - Celeste

Release Date: 1/25/2018
Number of Owners: 48
Average User Rating: 96%

The other game that made 9th place this year is the highly acclaimed indy game Celeste! This Canadian developed game was nominated for Game of the Year at The Game Awards this year.

8 - The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

Release Date: 5/19/2015
Number of Owners: 890
Average User Rating: 95%
2018 Completions: 14

The 8th place game this year is the Witcher III. This action role playing game was once considered "The Greatest Game of All Time" so how fitting for it to show up on the list this year!

7- Yakuza 0

Release Date: 3/12/2015
Number of Owners: 90
Average User Rating: 92%
2018 Completions: 5

Another new entry to the list this year is Yakuza 0, debuting at #7, the prequel to all the other Yakuza games. If you love this series, you have more remasters coming in the next few years!

6 - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Release Date: 3/3/2017
Number of Owners: 437
Average User Rating: 94%
2018 Completions: 22

Last year's Completionator Game of the Year has dropped to number 6 this year.
I would imagine we will see this game on future lists as well. BotW is another game considered to be the greatest game of all time and is a true masterpiece.

5 - Persona 5

Release Date: 9/15/2016
Number of Owners: 208
Average User Rating: 94%
2018 Completions: 12

Persona 5 dropped to 5th place from their 3rd place finish last year. It probably took over a year to finish this extremely long game. :) This is a great RPG if you can make it all the way through the lengthy story.

T-4 - Horizon Zero Dawn

Release Date: 2/28/2017
Number of Owners: 268
Average User Rating: 92%
2018 Completions: 16

4th place was our other placement this year with a tie. Horizon Zero Dawn landed in 4th place this year and this is our only game that didn't change in placement over last year. Another game that received many awards over the past two years deserves such a high placement again this year.

T-4 Super Mario Odyssey

Release Date: 10/27/2017
Number of Owners: 261
Average User Rating: 93%
2018 Completions: 32

The other game that landed in 4th place was 2nd place last year. Super Mario Odyssey continues to bring hours of enjoyment to so many Switch owners. It sold over 10 million copies earlier this year and I'm sure many million will continue to be sold. A classic that must be played if you have a Switch.

3 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age

Release Date: 7/29/2017
Number of Owners: 42
Average User Rating: 96%
2018 Completions: 11

The newest Dragon Quest has landed at 3rd place on our list this year. Some critics consider this to be the best entry in the series and it looks like several of our voters feel the same way. With a 96% user rating, if you like the Dragon Quest games, you should check this on out!

2 -Marvel's Spider-Man

Release Date: 9/7/2018
Number of Owners: 73
Average User Rating: 90%
2018 Completions: 25

Spider-Man was one of the most anticipated games of the year and it didn't disappoint. After a few short months after it released, it has already landed at the 2nd place spot this year. This PS4 exclusive looks amazing and the game play is stellar. This was another game nominated for Game of the Year at the Game Awards.

1 - God of War (2018)

Release Date: 4/20/2018
