2007 vs. 2008: Which year has the best games?

VideoGamer.com writes: "2007 was a great year for video games. We handed out three 10/10 scores and were bombarded with great releases. At the end of the year, as we picked our top 10 games of 2007 we looked to 2008 and sighed. "It'll never be as good as this year" we thought. But were we wrong? Now E3 2008 is over and the big publishers have revealed their full 2008 line-ups (barring any big, unexpected surprises) we can take a stab at working out if 2008 has got what it takes to take on the might of 2007's Halo 3, Mass Effect, BioShock and Call of Duty 4. We thought it would be a one-sided blood bath, but things weren't nearly so clear cut."

Hard to say at the moment, as 2008 isn't over yet. Though I preferring 2007 as I was having fond memories of Orange Box, Mass Effect, Bioshock and Uncharted.

So far besides GTA4 no title this year has come close to beating these titles.

"So far besides GTA4 no title this year has come close to beating these titles."
lol, i personally thought GTA4 was one of the most overhyped games ever like umm.. *cough* halo 3 *cough*. Not amazing at all. MGS4 ring a bell? I would have mgs4 as the only game in 2008 rather than every game in 2007! Its just that good.

RadientFlux3464d ago (Edited 3464d ago )

I have a different opinion of GTA4 as it was one of the only GTA games I cared enough of the storyline to beat the game and had a fun time doing it.

As for MGS4 I am apparently one of those rare people that disliked the game. I did end up beating it, though the game dialog/humor/happy bits and boring boss battles ruined the game experience for me.

EDIT: Lame argument choice, you disagree with me on how much I like a certain game and instead of arguing you just use the word fanboy and decided that "I haven't played the game".

jamilion3464d ago

You gotta play the game before you can say its bad. As soon as you said boring boss battle, i knew you havent played the game. Fanboys these days, sheesh!

ThatCanadianGuy3464d ago

Seriously...no joke..MGS4 is the best game ever made.
Tho i know it's gonna be overshadowed bigtime in 09

speaking for myself MGS4 is game of the year for 08

matchgrade3464d ago (Edited 3464d ago )

I loved MGS4 but I totally agree with you on the boss battle part. Kojima dumbed down the boss fights so more average FPS-playing Joes could pass them. How do you beat Laughing Octopus? Shoot the hell outta her. How do you beat Raging Raven? Shoot the hell outta her. How do you beat Crying Wolf? KEEP SHOOTING HER IN THE FCKING FACE. The only inventive ones were Mantis and the Super-Saiyan fistfight with Liquid.

@ jamilion:
As soon as you commented, I knew you haven't hit puberty. Kids these days, sheesh!

Maybe these articles can hold off until ... oh I don't know... the END of the year. TOTAL BS COMPARISON when there's still 4 1/2 months left which includes the the busiest time of the retail year... the holidays.

USELESS ARTICLE

incogneato3464d ago

On a side note: the top 10 lists this dude made were pure crap. no Uncharted on the 07 list but mediocre Crackdown is there? even Warhawk should be there over Crackdown. and all those weak games in the 08 list but no Resistance 2? crap. this guy put Fable 2 and Spore and FarCry 2 and Left4Dead over Resistance 2. what a joke.

Master Chafe on the main picture too. Has to be written by an Xbox fan.

callahan093464d ago

Just at first glance, I notice problems. For one, FFXII was 2006, not 2007, and Zack & Wiki was 2007, not 2008.

MikeGdaGod3464d ago

2008 without a doubt

i doubt any game will ever compare MGS4 imo. it's the only game that i highly anticipated, had high expectations about and they were surpassed COMPLETELY.

BigPappaPump3464d ago

I stopped reading after viewing the author's crappy list.

ChampIDC3464d ago

Use your brain, please. He didn't say the game is bad. He said he disliked it. There's a huge difference. Just because I got bored easily with Oblivion doesn't mean I think it's a bad game. Everybody has their respective tastes.

Tomdc3464d ago

i wuld say for da 360 it is 2007 and for the PS3 it is 2008

KingME3464d ago

"I would have mgs4 as the only game in 2008 rather than every game in 2007! Its just that good."

That has got to be one of the most careless statements I have read this year. But, I guess it's your opinion and you know what they say about opinions. (They're are like A$$HOLES, everybody has one.)

Although I enjoyed MSG4 alot, it was not the best game I have played since the end of 2006. As a matter of fact, there were several games from 2007 that I enjoyed more than MSG4. I honestly believe that you made that statement, because there was only 1 PS3 game on that list from 2007.

BTW, MSG4 is good, but if I had a choice of playing either MSG4 or ALL the games of the 2007 list. It's a no brainer that the 2007 list would easily win. MSG4 is good, but not that good.

masterg3464d ago

2008 by a large margin.

GTAIV
MGS4
Little Big Plannet
Gears of War 2
Resistance 2
MotorStorm 2
FarCry 2

2007
Halo 3
Uncharted
BioShock
Mass Effect
Orange Box

mikeslemonade3464d ago

If your a xbox 360 owner 2007 was the best. A PS3 owner 2008 will be the best.

I agree. 2008 had some great games (and isn't over now) but I think I'll go with 2007. Maby I'll change my opinion when the year is over

ChampIDC3464d ago

Well, my game anticipation was huge last year, but I think I'm anticipating the Fall more this year. Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, and Gears 2 have really captivated me.

matchgrade3464d ago (Edited 3464d ago )

Isn't it a lot better when we compare games by year instead of games by console?

I'll go with 2008. GTA4 and MGS4 blew me away more than anything else this generation.

ChampIDC3464d ago

Yeah, it's nice when console fanboyism isn't a factor. But you know, year fanboyism will probably find a way to arise.

okcomputer3464d ago

Depends, if gears, fallout, fable, resistance, lbp, force unleashed, the new silent hill and soul calibur all live up to the hype, i'd say 2008 will be the better year by far. We've already gotten two strong goty players in gta4 and mgs4, and 2007 didn't really get good until the fall/winter. So we'll see.
