The prettiest screenshots of 2018

Assassin's Creed Odyssey screenshot by HodgeDogs. See more on Flickr.  

I'm a big fan of great screenshots, and every year provides a new batch of beautifully staged grabs from videogame photographers. Earlier in the year, I asked our readers to submit their favorite shots, and I've included some of those here. I've also included hi-res work from Frans Bouma, Andy Cull, and Larah Johnson (aka HodgeDogs) with their permission.

For more, check out the submissions in the comments here, as well as last year's collection. Enjoy!

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
