Ripten's Best of E3 2008


"We've taken a week now to get our bearings and fully recover from our jet-lag, and I think overall we all felt that E3 2008 was a huge success. We definitely can't wait to go back next year! The three console-makers each had a few surprises (some which we liked better than others) and the third-party lineups were much stronger than expected. It's no wonder some are calling this the best year for games ever.

So here are our top picks from the show this year. Did we leave anything out? Be sure to let us know in the comments. "

Fallout 3's list is also growing. IGN, Ripten, DailyGame, Scrawl, VE3D IGN...

The battle for GOTY between LBP, Fallout 3 and Spore is gonna be brutal. Mirror's Edge, MGS4 and GTA4 are the other candidates.

Number 1 - LittleBigPlanet
Number 2 - Mirror's Edge
Number 3 - GoW 2

Yea man gears was bad ass. i agree with you. I hope resistance 2 is able to be on the same level of quality as gears. Because i know gears is going to be bad.

Is a clunky 2d platformer with a level creator. Go play a few pc games and you will quickly realize a clunky game with a level creator is still just a clunky game. Think about it, in UT3 on pc you can make your own maps and change gameplay anyway you see fit. If little big planet is going to be goty they have to do something with the clunky gameplay.

so what's clunky?

Or did you mean in awesome.

why does everyone have such a hard time making a simple jump? It reminds me of bottom tier nes platformers gameplay wise. At the same time, if I'm proven wrong that wouldn't be a bad thing. So far, as I see it Little Big Planet is the most overhyped game of all time.

So tell me why it's getting all them awards?

Tacki3640d ago (Edited 3640d ago )

I don't think 'clunky' is the problem. I think they just wanted you to be precise with your timing. You say you see it as 'the most overhyped game of all time' - which I think is going rather far. Then again you're probably exagerating to help make your point. You very well COULD be right... but all of these places that have given LittleBigPlanet 'game of the show' have gotten hands-on time with the game. I think they would know a lot more than any of us. And it's not like it's been one site. It's been several. The game won't appeal to EVERYONE, as no game does... but it does seem to be living up to the hype for those who've played it. Even hearing the guys on G4 you can tell they're absolutely giddy over it.

I'm kinda hype about Mirror's Edge. I so want the control scheme for this game to work well.

You know where you can play them both this fall right? Just checking... :)
