R.B.I. Baseball 19 Review

As a big fan of baseball, it’s natural to be filled with hope every spring. Hope that this will be the year that my favorite team finally stops being inconsistent, hope that they will finally stop delivering an underwhelming product, and hope that they will finally take the steps necessary to stand tall against the best competition out there. As an Xbox One owner, I have the same hope – the hope that MLB Advanced Media will release a baseball title for the Xbox console that can be mentioned in the same conversation as MLB the Show, without it being a joke.

However, despite the relative lack of outstanding first-party offerings from Microsoft, there were still a lot of great games released in 2018 to play on the Xbox One. This list will detail my top five games released in 2018 for the Xbox One.
