8. Rocket League
And the car themselves can perform all sorts of gravity-defying leaps, and driving along the arena’s walls is also possible in an attempt to score spectacular goals. The game also features intense multiplayer season modes that feel as competitive as real-world soccer is (but with vehicles!), in which players attempt to take advantage of every opportunity to score. Rocket League also featured a good single player season mode in which players could hone their skills by competing against solid AI opponents, in what certainly was one of the year’s best video games.
