    But Taco.. I love Spore...

    :C

    I don`t know, I think Spore got ridiculously bad media from that whole DRM controversy and people expected way too much out of it because of the long wait. EA Games isn`t doing too well right now.

    Fallout 3, just for the sheer just how twisted evil can i get. save a village from slavery make all nice an then wipe em all out, story too short though rates high. resistance 2 crap apart from multiplayer. far cry 2 was good but too easy and the story didn`t make a bit of sense. rate highly guitar hero, been out ages but just recently caught on myself. on the terms that if a game keeps you up till 3 that it`s good i`ll have to say guitar hero 3.

    btw metal gear was good while it lasted, and gta 4 was a disappointment. I own ps3 but will def get a 360 since they seem to own the zombie genre at the moment.

    The list was ALL console games? FAIL. Don`t even talk about graphics if you`re playing on a console.

    PC gaming FTW.

    And where was GRID? I love that game.

    I like the list and agree wholeheartedly, but I would rearrange the order, putting Castle Crashers on there instead of Prince of Persia, and Fallout 3 above Fable 2, MGS4 above GTA4. although I don`t know who would be #1. I am not a fanatic of shooter games, so I am not a good judge of those games as I haven`t played GoW2 or L4D or Dead Space.

    Me and the roommate have gone through a top 10 list and 9 of these titles match (Prince of Persia omitted and Castle Crashers or Braid in it`s place)

    We are both avid gamers and work together as well as live together, so we talk about video games a LOT and watch each other play since we have different games preferences, he prefers Gears of War whereas I prefer Fable 2 type of deal. Although we both agree a good final Fantasy release is WELL OVERDUE (FF7 and FF9-like story and gameplay)

    Also, I fought to get Portal onto our 2008 list, even though it`s from last year, it`s still WAY better than everything released this year.

    Pfft, it looks pretty damned fantastic in just standard def. Who needs HD to watch people prattle on about what games THEY think are the best?

    Anyway, I`m not going to sit here for a half hour and watch this. As soon as I saw how long it was, I stopped it. Screw that.

    "maybe a wii game will be on here next year! probably not.." Truth man.
    Left4Dead is amazing. I have to admit, im not entirely sure its #1, but once it gets more maps/guns/infected(?) then it will undoubtably be right there. Now my only decision is to get it for xbox or pc...

    LEFT FOR DEAD ON THE FIRST SPOT? NO dratING WAY! it wasn`t that good! A lot of games I havevn`t even heard of in that list, too...what a bs.

    why the drat would I want a 34 min vid in this hd quality? It`s not much use when I can hardly hear the sound over the awesomeness of my lag.

    The fact Fallout 3 is higher up than LittleBIGPlanet and Metal Gear Solid 4 has made me take this a little less seriously.

    Fallout 3 isn`t bad, but come on. Two games that did more gameplay wise and added something fresh over other games and previous installments below a game that isn`t any different to the Developers other games. Dead Space also does far more interesting things, and again is lower. Surprised Far Cry 2 isn`t there either. That also has a huge world with a lot of detail.

    Grand Theft Auto IV also wasn`t terrible, but in terms of actually having fun I`ll always choose Saint`s Row 2.

    I`m glad Left 4 Dead is there though, and at 1. I love that game. Multiplayer in that is a ton of fun.

    Gears of War 2 definitely shouldn`t though. ~_~ It`s the same as the first game. And that wasn`t even good.

    there`s nothing "fresh" about either of those games. littlebigplanet, a side scrolling platformer with graphics.... woohoo. and MGS4 was ok at best.

    Why isn`t Spore on this list?

    Just kidding :)

    Anyway littlebigplanet should be number one, two or three. Seriously, number 10? Just because it isn`t horribly violent it doesn`t mean it`s not the best game of the year.

    "The list was ALL console games? FAIL. Don`t even talk about graphics if you`re playing on a console."

    I hate people like this. Seriously, if you think you`re superior because you spent £1250 on a PC because you thought you`d get better graphics than those "dirty console gamers", take a look at the PS3. It costs less, doesn`t need new hardware every 3 months to keep up with the latest games and it costs under £300. And furthermore, it can handle not only the highest graphics in games today, but the highest in games in the future.

    Thus my fanboyish rant is over and I have confirmed my status as a life-long virgin.

    "littlebigplanet, a side scrolling platformer with graphics.... woohoo."
    A side-scrolling platformer where you can create pretty much anything you like. Believe me, it`s much more complicated than simple platforming.

    Zombiemike - I think you`ll find all games have "graphics" as you put it.

    Have you even played it? Or for more than five minutes? Sounds to me as though you haven`t. Having completed it myself there`s far more to the game that side scrolling and platforming.

    I won`t even bother argue with you about the MGS4 just being ok comment. Having finished it several times to unlock a lot of the equipment and with your lack of actual reasons why it`s just "ok", leading me to think you probably haven`t, or if you have you again mustn`t have gone for five minutes, I don`t really see the point.
