Last year was a blockbuster year for video games and, amazingly, 2008 is shaping up to be even bigger. Here's a look at some of the upcoming titles MSNBC can't wait to get their hands on.
This is a pretty poor Top 5 list considering the big names coming out in 2008.
Ghostbusters? Sure, could be fun - could suck. I'll reserve judgment, but I'd hardly call it a Top 5 contender.
The AGENCY? Really? Okay...
Smash Brothers and GTA4 are fair choices.
Spore, I could go either way on. It's on *my* Top 5 list, for sure, but as a general Top 5 list I'd probably go (in no particular order):
Gears of War 2
The problem with a "Top 5" list for 2008 is there's just too many games with great potential out to limit yourself to only *five*. If I expand my list to Top 10 it becomes more reasonable:
Gears of War 2
Little Big Planet
Ninja Gaiden 2
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition (SHUT UP! It totally counts...)
Soul Calibur 4
worst top 5 list ever...
only game I agree with is Smash Bros.
This is why MSNBC should stick to news. The agency and Ghost Busters? Does Ken Smith even play games or did he just throw a dart at a board and that is how he came to those conclusions? Obviously GTA should be one and I could make a case for spore and smash brothers (I personally won't play either); but the other two games probably have no business being on a top 20 list let alone a top 5.
I really dont know where they got that top 5 from. Somebody got something screwed up somewhere. GTA sure, Spore Maybe, Agency Slight Maybe still to early to tell. I think it would be really hard to make just a top 5 for this year. But it should have been better than that.
Number one was a tad unexpected...
of all the great games they chose ghostbusters and the agency? must not be a gamer to choose a movie based game in there, cause they are never good.... i tried to make a top 10 list... i came out with 40+ games and 3 of the 5 weren't on there ha... i will add i didnt inlcude wii games in that....so 2 of 4
I think all except SSBB was WRONG! KZ2 Resistance 2 Gears of War 2 SSBB MGS4
too many big titles for a "top 5" list.
My top 5 are: SSBB Fable 2 MGS 4 Soul Calibur 4 Lost Odyssey (Just came out)
Now this is what I call a bad list. Even though everything is opinons based, having Agency and Ghostbusers instead of MGS4 and Fallout 3 is downright stupid.
no one is looking forward to ghostbusters or spore or the agency.... wheres gt 5, mgs4, stars wars, home for ps3 (not really a game)!!!!
Actually Spore has been hyped up immensely. Personally, it's not something I'd buy, but it's still supposed to be a fantastic game.
Don't say no one is looking forward to those games. I'm actually really looking forward to The Agency.
Ghostbusters is number 1 huh? A completely unproven license-based game that no one has heard of instead of big exclusives like Mario Kart, Gears of War, Halo Wars, Metal Gear Solid, and Gran Turismo.
Dear MSNBC. Whatever you're on, I want some.
this article is the daily wtf what about God of War FF:CC for PSP, and GeOW2, and KZ2 or GT5 and MGS4...bs article
PS3 = GranTurismo 5: Prologue/GranTurismo 5
XBox 360 = Gears of War 2/Halo Wars
on all consoles = Silent Hill 5
>> Hah ha ha... that is so funny Ghostbusters is on the list.
Seriously the list was a big lame-o, like it was chosen by a 10-year old kid.
GTA4 GEARS OF WAR 2 ARMY OF TWO MGS4 SSBB
alone in the dark far cry 2 gears of war2 killzone 2 gta4 metal gears 4 splinter cell4 i guess project offset is not ready yet. and i hope ghost recon come up with something new this year.
