The Biggest Games Coming Out In April 2018

After Pillars of Eternity 2 and Total War Sagas: Thrones of Britannia slipped into May, April is actually a little bit tragic for big game releases outside of the PlayStation 4. Owners of Sony’s console are in for a couple of absolute treats though; Yakuza 6 has received fantastic reviews and the early buzz surround God of War suggests the reboot should be excellent. For PC gamers, redemption may come in the form of Paradox’s Battletech, although the lack of an official release date does make it a doubt for this month.

If you’re an indie developer, I haven’t seen a better month in a long, long while to release your game on Steam.

You can get voting below for the games you're intending to pick up during this coming month, or, as is more likely this month I believe, let us know what you're planning play from your backlog instead! You can also vote for multiple games if you’re planning multiple purchases (no cheating!). Enjoy the next month of gaming!

why can we vote multiple times on the same game ? someone should restrict the max_number_of_votes_on_one_choice to 1 and not to the number_of_choices_available.

Ohh look at the time! Has it been 6 years + already?!
Joking aside, I'm not sure why people even bother with these ports - you got no mods, no updates and for the past couple of years, ya have already achieved carpal-tunnel from playing the hell out of this game on PC (and its various mods) - I mean, am I just an old hater or just can't see the point from all of this

The reason is problably a combination between melancholy and hype. Skyrim used to be really big and it probably became a lot of peoples' favorite game. And they just cant let it go. Skyrim has also been called a must play and has been hyped by a lot of gamers so that could also be the cause of its ongoing popularity.
