My Top 10 Games of 2008

2007 was a fantastic year for video games. I have never seen such an epic holiday season. A season that was filled with release after release of awesome games.
WHAT A PAIN

2008 though....wow! An entire year where more than a couple of the games released made their way onto my list of favorites. Amazing.

Just a quick Top 10 here folks:

10. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
(What an awesome game! That Banjo.... what a goof!)

9.
Prince of Persia (Beautiful game! The Prince and Elika really made the game for me. Just sayin'.)

8. No More Heroes (Assassins, lawn mowing, blood, lightsabers.... kinda coo')
OH YEAH! LETS GET IT ON!

7. Gears of War 2 (Wait... moar GARZ?! Horde mode was a great addition)


6. Rock Band 2 (ANY WAY YOU WANT IT! THATS THE WAY YOU NEED IT!)

5. Left 4 Dead (Bill!)


4. Dead Space (A great Action Horror game. In space. With mutants. Faaantastic.)


3. Fallout 3 (I spent almost 70 hours playing this beast...that alone should speak for itself)
COUSIN! LETS GO BOWLING!

2. Lost Odyssey (JANSEN! The ending got me a little teary eyed. JUST SAYIN'.)

1. Grand Theft Auto 4


Honorable mentions: Fable 2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Saints Row 2, Soul Calibur IV, Ninja Gaiden II, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

I still need to play: Metal Gear Solid 4 (I need a PS3 OKAY!), Silent Hill: Homecoming, Mirror's Edge, Too Human, Tales of Vesparia

Yikes! Hopefully this year won't be as awesome because I need to catch up!

Edit: Oh yeah. Burnout Paradise and Castle Crashers. Those games were pretty awesome as well. Damn...

As much as I love this list, it has too much Prince of Persia, and not much Harrison Ford.

No reason for choosing GTA IV?
WHAT A RIPOFF.

Still, good list.  Needs moar Rainbow Six Vegas 2 though.

GTA IV is self-explanatory OKAY!

Awesome #2 there buddy. Wish I could do a list myself, but I spent the latter of the year working like a lazy bum! Also...

"I still need to play: Metal Gear Solid 4 (I need a PS3 OKAY!), Silent Hill: Homecoming, Braid, Mirror's Edge, Braid, Too Human, Okami, Tales of Vesparia, Braid"***

That's an excellent list in nearly all perspectives. Grand Theft Auto IV is my favorite game of 2008 (although another game I played in 2008 beats it). It revamped a controversial series to give it a much mature tone.

Gears 2,L4D and Lost Odyssey are amongst my favorites in this year as well. :)

GTA IV? Seriously? Heheh, awesome. Yeah, looking back it's still pretty impressive. Going to have to finish III one o' these days.

Jameson: Definitely. Are you gonna check out Vice City and San Andreas as well?

Stunks: NO!

You fail, sir. :(

Yep, have the trilogy pack, so I'll be moving on to those at some point. Vice City seems more appealing than San Andreas. Like the 80s thing going on there.
