GOTY 2008

This list is as simple as they come. 2008 was a huge year for games, and I feel compelled to make a top 10 list just like everyone else. What's interesting about this year in particular is that I can actually make a legitimate top 10 list- I don't know if I've ever been able to do that before! Usually it's a top 5 or something. But in 2008 I had a hard time narrowing it down to even 10 games. Even then, ordering them was difficult. Anyway, here are my 10 favorite games of 2008! In order!

It is rare to see TWEWY and Dead Space up so high on a Top 10 2008 list, but I wholeheartedly agree. TWEWY was an incredibly fresh take on JRPGs, you still had your angsty teenage protagonist with weird hair, but it made sense here, and Neku even grew into a more mature character as the game went on. The combat and setting were also incredibly fresh and enjoyable. I actually just popped it in my DS the other day to try and level up some more. 
Dead Space is also a game that I was surprised about, I too thought it looked like the most generic thing ever. I mean, Dead Space? Its a pretty self explanatory title that leaves little to build off of or create any mystery for, yet somehow the fine folks at EA Redwood (now Visceral) crafted an incredibly tense and well structured shooter that, in my opinion, was a better Resident Evil 5 than RE5 was.
