Since we are into the new year now, I thought I'd make a list of all the best games (in my opinion) of 2008 which was probably one of the best years in gaming yet. Here we go.
10. Super Smash Bros: Brawl
One of the most pure fun games around, but still needs work on it's online play and to add something new.
9. God of War 2 + God of War: Chains of Olympus
I couldn't chose just one! Both these games are easily the best action games around and set the bar incredibly high.
8. GTA 4
The reason this game didn't make it higher on my list is because it lacks alot of the fun of previous installments, and sometimes felt more like a city simulator.
Grid pushed out burnout on my list becuse it is simply the most fun racing game I have ever played. With great production values and an awesome flash back feature Grid beat burnout by much more than a nose.
6. Call of Duty: World at War
I'm one of the few people who didn't mind going back to world war 2. The graphics, gameplay, campaign and multiplayer where all great and it had the voice of Kiefer Sutherland! If only the campaign was longer.
5. Resistance 2
One of the Best (and only) shooters on the PS3. Everything was improved from the original making for an intense game. Plus it has a great solo and co-op campaign and an awesome multiplayer mode.
4. Gears of war 2
Pretty much the same story as #5. It improved on an already amazing game and actualy had a story this time around.
3. Fallout 3
Made by the developer of one of my all time favorite games (oblivion), I had high expactations for this game, and it surpased them all. Everything about this game ozes quality. The dialogue is well writen, the capital waste land is beautiful and well dissigned and the story is amazing.
2. Dead space
One of the surprise hits for me. It was a close race between fallout and this for #2, but I had to give it to Dead Space because it was good enough that I've already played through it 5 times (and got 1000/1000 achievments, WOOT!). The graphics and art style are the best I've ever seen and the audio is simply terrifying. This game never stoped being scary even on multiple play throughs. And unlike many other horror games, its gameplay is just as good if not better than other action games.
1. Metal Gear Solid 4
The expectations for this game were astronomical, but some how, Kojima managed to not just deliver but to smash expectations. Everything about this game screams quality (and awesomeness). The graphics, gameplay, audio and everything else are simply amazing. But for me the most impresive featurethat so many games neglect is the story. MGS4 earns the title of being only the 2nd game to make me shed a tear (the 1st being MGS3). This is the game that made me buy a PS3, and I have no regrets. This isn't only the top game of 2008, it's the best game I have ever played.
