Game of the Year 2018 #4 - Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
What a game Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is. Just when you think it's over, there's another 50 hours left. Then maybe another 50.

Quest for the West
We don't quite know how well Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has performed here in the West, but given its unfortunate release date and its relatively niche appeal, among other factors, it's probably had a semi-decent run at best.
