​This year has been quite the year for video games. There have been multiple video games that have come out that are very popular. These games consist of NBA 2K18, Madden NFL 18, and Destiny 2. These games not only have many new features, but they also bring in a lot of money for the companies that release them.

​Destiny 2 is an online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Activision. It was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017, followed by a Microsoft Windows version the following month.[1][2] It is the sequel to 2014’s Destinyand its subsequent expansions. Set in a “mythic science fiction” world, the game features a multiplayer “shared-world” environment with elements of role-playing games. Players assume the role of a Guardian, protectors of Earth’s last safe city as they wield a power called Light to protect the Last City from different alien races. One of these races, the Cabal, lead by their emperor, Dominus Ghaul, infiltrate the Last City and strips all Guardians of their Light. The player sets out on a journey to regain their Light and find a way to defeat Ghaul and his Red Legion army and take back the Last City.

​Destiny 2 has many new features including the fact that it will have a greater focus on the story mode with more cinematic cut-scenes and story missions than ever before. Players will battle Dominus Ghaul, the leader of the Red Legion of the Cabal alien race, who believes that his people should be Guardians, not humanity and wants to take the Traveler’s power and Light for himself.

​Destiny 2 will feature new weapons and armor with it also splitting the weapons into three sections: Kinetic, energy, and power weapons instead of the primary, secondary, and heavy classifications as before.
​The first of two big sports games is NBA 2K18 is a hardcore sports simulation. If you want to get good, you have to put in the work. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to improve your skills no matter how you want to play. The fact that there’s so much to do is a bonus, because on the court, NBA 2K18 is also an amazingly well crafted experience.
​As for actual new gameplay features, it is all about MyGM: The Next Chapter this year, and nothing else even comes close. This time users will control a former player six years removed from a career-ending injury that takes over a franchise.

​Another new feature includes the new CBA and the “super max” contracts signed by guys like Chris Paul this off season. Roster minimums, stashing players overseas, trading rights, stretch provisions; exceptions and so much more are now making their way into all modes.

​The second of big sports games to come out this year was Madden NFL 18. Madden NFL 18 is highlighted by one of the most significant additions in series history–a full story mode–and a new, much more graphically capable engine. And due in large part to the Longshot story, it is a marked improvement over the last several entries in the series.
​Longshot is the new story mode in Madden NFL 18 that is highlighted by a  boy named Devin Wade and the player takes control of him as he plays college football and attempts to get drafted into the NFL
​These three video games are highlighting the year that video games make history by releasing some of the most popular games in the video games era.
