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.

"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.

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.

I`m not even going to bother looking, judging by the comments here. Inaccurate lists are the most irritating things on the internet, besides /b/tards and trolls.

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.

I`m suppose to watch some self-proclaimed video game pundits for more than a half-hour while they do their "Top Ten" list?

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.

"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...

No.
Left 4 Dead won.
That`s on the PC isn`t it?

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Spore sucked. I wish i hadnt wasted 2 years following it and $50 buying it. World of Goo and Telltale games deserved that money.
