    The best games of 2008?

    my personal list:

    1. Ninja Gaiden 2
    2. Grand Theft Auto IV
    3. Super Mario Galaxy (it was a 2008 release for me anyway )
    4. Madden NFL 09
    5. SW: Force Unleashed

    Honorable mention:
    Dark Sector... one of the few shooter games I really enjoyed
    Soul Calibur IV


    Games I didn't really dig:

    Fallout 3... just not my kind of game but I know alot of you love it.
    Mega Man 9...seriously wtf? why make it so hard? I went back and beat the old Mega Man games again when this thing came out, and I still have only completed one damn level of this thing.

    Games I'm really looking forward to in 2009:

    Backbreaker (if it ever comes out)
    Ninja Blade
    Assassin's Creed 2
    Mass Effect 2 (if it's out in 2009)
    Alpha Protocol

    Noodles

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Seriously, GT5 is already out. Its just GT4/3/2 with better graphics and different cars.

    My favorite games of the year...
    1. Left 4 Dead
    2. Mass Effect PC version
    3. Fallout 3
    4. Prince of Persia
    ...that's about it really. I played lots of games I really didn't enjoy, Gears of War 2 being first and foremost. Then some that were way better than I was expecting but were in genres I didn't like, such as survival horror - Dead Space. Then there was some really fun games that didn't last very long for me because they were pretty simple (Castle Crashers and Mega Man 9).

    My number 1 most played game this year though, hands down - Halo 3.

    1. Lost Odyssey
    2. Gears of War 2
    3. Soul Calibur 4 (even though i still think the star wars tie is the biggest piece of shit ever)
    4. Rock Band 2. Fuck it, its fun at parties.
    5. GTAIV

    Honorable Mention:

    -SFII HD Remix: Yeah, its a HD remaster of a 14 year old game. Its still fun as shit to own matt on XBL in it, though.

    Shit i wanted to play but havent yet:
    -Fable, Fable II
    -Deadspace
    -Fallout

    Biggest Letdown:
    -Armored Core 4/ 4 Answer. I used to play Armored Core all the time on PS1, and PS2. had Armored Core, Armored Core 2, Armored Core MOA, Armed Core Project phantasm, Armored Core 3. And they had to try to be innovative and shit, and fucked it all up. Thanks, from software, for ruining my favorite mechwarrior ripoff.


    Looking forward to:
    -Street Fighter IV


    I thought Dark Sector was fun, but the game itself felt really incomplete to me. Graphical compromises were easy to see in some places - things you don't expect to see on a system like the 360. Shit like being able to have gashes and bullet holes on transparent spots on chain link fences.

    Fallout 3, Gears of War 2, and uh those are the only games I've bought this year.

    My brother just got a copy of GTAIV, seems pretty damn cool so far.
