Shock! Surprise! Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Switch has taken Brutal Gamer’s last Game of the Month honors for 2018.
No, this should come as a shock to no-one at all. But nevertheless it’s true – Super Smash Bros Ultimate is our Game of the Month for December 2018. It’s with good reason too, since the game seems to live up to it’s “ultimate” title.

We also had an honorable mention in December with Ashen, which tallied one vote. While it didn’t get a ton of support from our team, it does look like a bit of a hidden gem.
