In quarter 1, the greatest achievement I did was that I wrote my article. The reason why I think it was my greatest achievement is that I had put lots of effort into the piece. For this project, I have wrote 10 paragraphs about top 10 upcoming games in 2017-2018. It was really interesting for me, because I got to learn about the key features of games.
For the next quarter, I will probably work on following the rubrics, because I didn’t really focus on my rubric that’s why I didn’t get a high mark. I will also work on getting at least B team soccer next quarter just for the joy. But the best thing that I think will happen is Halloween.
10th place: Days Gone
For the 10th place, we have “Days Gone”. This game is developed by SIE Bend Studio, a group of developers that works with another group called The Naughty Dog. The Naughty Dog and SIE Bend Studio made Uncharted, one of the craziest game that made gamers from all around the world go crazy. Continuing to Days Gone, you play in third person point of view or second point of view depending on what you are doing. This game is about a guy named Deacon which is the main character who thrives to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. You play as Deacon and go around to search for loots, cars, guns and avoid threats like BIG hordes of zombies. From big, it mean lots and lots of zombies. In this game, zombie usually goes in horde, and a horde usually contains hundreds of zombies. We also have to avoid AI groups of people that are enemy. According to the storyline, you gotta join a group and the group is gonna give you some mission to do. They probably will call Deacon over to go and rescue some members. From that, you gotta be very strategic in combat to defeat a group of people. Either to put a trap in a bush and throw a rock to lure the person in the group towards the trap. Then you loot their stuff and hide. When all the AI are near the trapped guy, you can throw a molotov at them and kill them silently instead of using a gun and burst fire on them, because that will make noises and causes some attention to other people of the group in another place nearby. Mostly the game is about strategic and thinking of methods to do things perfectly.
9th place: Hello Neighbor
For the 9th place, we have an Indie game called “Hello Neighbor”. This game is developed Dynamix Pixels and designed by Nikita Kolesnikov, a game designer. This group of developers is not that famous worldwide, but after this game people would get to know a little bit more about them. This group has created other games like, Goal defense, MewSim Pet Cat, and others. They mostly make mobile games and this is their first PC, Xbox, and Macintosh operating system game. Moving on, Hello Neighbor first person point of view. It’s an Indie game where you have to beat the AI, which is the neighbor with your strategic methods and find a way to open a locked door and uncover the mystery behind it that the neighbor is hiding. The neighbor will chase you and try to catch you. If you get caught by the Neighbor, you will spawn back at your house. If you are close to the Neighbor, your screen shakes and an intense music will be played in the background. This is kind of like a puzzle game, but more intense and horrifying scenario. This game is cartoon, the graphic is beautiful. The thing that needs to be improved is how the Neighbor walks, because it is not realistic. His movement can be very mysterious.
8th place: God of War
For the 8th place, we have a game called “God of War” The game is developed by SIE Santa Monica Studio, Ready at Dawn, Daybreak Game Company, Javaground. These 4 developers are famous for the God of War sequel. This game is the 4th sequel to the other sequels. This game is a third person point of view where you play as the god of war, Kratos where you have to fight to survive. You also have to train your son, so he could understand how to survive. This story has a great storyline just like the older God of War games. This game has great dialogue to make the storyline more interesting. You have to kill animals for food and kill threats like fantasy creatures. The best thing that makes this game realistic is that you can really interact with the background. For example, if you walk on snow, the snow will create a hole which creates footsteps.
7th place: Red Dead Redemption 2
For the 7th place, we have Red Dead Redemption 2. The developer of this game is Rockstar, one of the world’s famous game developer that has been known by the GTA games.

You basically can do anything in it, but if you want to do the storyline you can go to different places to do it. This game brings you to a third person point of view where it has very high graphics, high animation, and incredible characters. The graphics are really realistic. From the details of the characters face, to the background looks really cool. For a game that has a really realistic graphic, you would know how realistic the background would be, the wild west background looks super realistic. The animation of the characters and the environment is amazing. The characters that get drag by a horse looks so legitimate and real. The movement of the character also looks realistic.

This game features extreme graphics quality, massive world, lots of interactions, and beautiful setting. This game is a third person point of view game. It brings you to Ancient Egypt, the time where Assassin are born. The quality of this game is amazing. Ubisoft really focused on the very bits of the detail to make this game fabulous. The characters face is not that real, but the everything else is just so real you may think it’s the real Ancient Egypt. An 8th grader said,
“I played this before and the gameplay is very realistic and the maps are also wide-variety locations.”
You can basically choose to have fun or do quests and get loots to manage your equipment. The worst thing about this is to manage your equipment, because if you want to have fun killing people, riding animals, climbing buildings you gotta manage equipments and by getting the equipments you got to find loots, which is a pain.
3rd place: Star Wars Battlefront 2
For the 3rd place, we have Star Wars Battlefront 2. This game is seriously going to be a great game just like Battlefield 1.

The details of the mechanic are very descriptive. The world is gigantically huge. The character would basically be standing at one point and suddenly gets to another point by jumping up with crazy physics. The thing that needs to be improved is that it needs to have storyline, that will enhance the game more than instead of just shooting and killing people.
2nd place: Spiderman
For the 2nd place, we have Spiderman. This game is developed by Insomniac Games. This developer is known for making Fuse and Edge of Nowhere.

You can also choose other shooting modes to play instead of just shooting people, like zombie mode.Overall, this deserves the 1st place.
