Welcome to the next level

After a stellar year in gaming that gave us such hits as "Zelda: Breath of the Wild," "Horizon: Zero Dawn" and the mobile powerhouse Nintendo Switch, what could 2018 possibly offer to raise the bar even further?

Hit "continue" on the New Year as we look over some of the best in interactive, heart-pounding storytelling for 2018.
