I'm sorry but that list is bull, star wars does not deserve to be on that list no way, MGS4 should be number one

drewdrakes3213d ago

Completely agreed. Grand Theft Auto 4 sucked, Force Unleashed sucks, and Gears 2 sucks (im a 360 and wii owner, trust me Gears 2 sucks).

TheForgotten0ne3213d ago

I was in shock aswell, that list is plain bullshit.

GTAIV, sure I can take that, it would be on my top3 anyways, but Braid on second place? It's a great game, it truly is. But not close to beat so many other games, it's a shame that MGS4 is not even on that list, but I guess thats what someone think : (

kevnb3212d ago (Edited 3212d ago )

mgs4 should be on there somewhere, but whatever. The best games arent the ones that the obsessive people like best, for most average people all those games were awesome.
edit: I'm surprised they put Braid in there.

shamv3212d ago

Since when does Gears suck? Its one of the best campaigns ever in action games. Yeah, multiplayer is crap but I got Resistance 2 for that.

Man_of_the_year3212d ago

To all those who say MGS4 should have been on the list - just remember the title says top 10 GAMES of 08 - not movies.

shamv - You run up, see some guys, take cover and keep picking them off one by one. If you run out there you die. If you leave cover, you die. How is that fun for you? I mean yay, you get to ride some of the locust stuff. Its boring, you barely control them and its very linear. Oh you get to pick a path at one point or another, way to mix it up. Ive played more interested flash games on the web.

Since you agree the online is crap i wont even get into it, as i dont see how it even passed Microsoft Certification.

Sitdown3212d ago (Edited 3212d ago )

can't you take any game and make it sound boring like you did? Take for instance...MGS IV...shoot guy in head, hump floor then disappear, get up and run to building...watch 3 minutes cut scene..run to next building. Mario Kart..drive around throw turtle shells turn left, turn right. Halo 3..run, shoot, change weapon..throw grenade. Hide behind rock until energy comes back up...run out, shoot some more. Resistance 2...run, shoot, leave teammates behind...run, shoot, wait for eyes to glow. run shoot...cutscene were you get injected.

See what I did there...you can strip any game of its character and make it sound like it sucks. But in doing so...you have to give credit to Epic and Microsoft for not only selling millions of Gears of Suck 1, but Gears of Suck 2. Anyhow...I have not finished more than 10 minutes of Metal Gear just yet....I started Gears 2 but found a rental copy of Resistance 2 and rented it so that I could beat it...and have not went back to Gears just yet...mainly because I picked up the latest COD to see if it is any good. Here is a thought...perhaps people just like a variation of shooters and are not drenched in story lines and plots...they just want to play video games.

@aebriscoejr
Just out of curiosity....why did you cut and paste the list?

shamv3212d ago

drewdrakes: So what you are saying is that all the reviewers are wrong and the millions who buy the game know nothing about good games, all together thats a lot of dumb-asses out there then. And like sitdown said, you can make any game sound boring. You are simply a minority in disliking this game, like there are those who dislike halo, fanal fantasy or mgs, but are all great games. Sales dont mean everything but together witg critical acclaim they equal to a great game and franchise.

INehalemEXI3212d ago (Edited 3212d ago )

This is the reason gaming magazines, and sites exist today...Otherwise there would be only crap (this list for example) from media like Time and Fox. Conserning games.

drewdrakes3212d ago

I loved Gears 1. Gears 2 was hype off the first.

This list is not going to go down properly with a certain faction of N4G.

spunnups3213d ago

completely kills this list. TIME stick to stuff you do know about, games isn't one of them.

tatotiburon3213d ago

second magazine to give GOTY award to GTAIV, it deserves it, can't wait for DLC

bigman73873212d ago

I'm still very lukewarm to GTA IV. Nothing about this game has screamed "GOTY" at me. Yea, it's got a big city. But so did Oblivion and Fallout 3.

The gunplay is awkward, and driving is uncomfortable. I just think that there were many other games that offered better experiences. Yea the graphics were pretty good for a sandbox game, but I can honestly say that at this moment, I can go back and play GTA II and have more fun.

RebornSpy3212d ago

Whenever I play GTA IV, it's easy to see how much work went into making the massive city as realistic as it is. The game may not have the best shooting or driving, but I think the story is top-knotch. I have always liked the art style of the game as well.

As far as quality goes, I think GTA IV is definitely GOTY. Personally, I can't decide until I actually get LBP and Fallout 3 over winter break.
