Top 10 Games of 2008 That I Didn't Play

Spek from TrueGameHeadz writes:
"As each year goes by, it feels like the number of good games released over those 12 months just keeps rising. This year was no different. I would argue that it saw a bigger increase than previous years largely because of the influx of quality casual and indie games. I think nearly every gamer missed out on a game they planned to get because they didn't have the time, or saw yet another awesome game and just didn't have the resources to cop it. I was definitely a victim. I'm closing out the year with empty pockets, plenty of great games, and a stupid-long list of games I really wanted to play and didn't.

This is the top 10 games from that list..." (Culture, Left 4 Dead, No More Heroes, PS3, Soulcalibur IV, Wii, Xbox 360)

"I actually own the game. It’s sitting at home in my game drawer and it never managed to get into my PS3."

WTF???? Why pay 60 bucks for a game (which IMO,is probably one of,if not THE best of all time,and NEVER even play it once????

Exactly what I was going to say
This dude's credibility (if he had any) is gone after that statement.

I too
have MGS4(day 1 purchase) and have not played it. My reason:- dont know. i have alot of games that i have not played, but yet i buy new ones when they come out. My girls hates me for it, but hey i can afford to.

Soul Calibur IV
is the only game on that list that I did play. Left for Dead is one I might pick up soon and I don't own a PS3 yet, so no MGS4 until sometime next year.

I didn't play any of those either lol. But I just got Dead Space, left 4 dead, fallout 3, soul Calibur IV are all on my top Gamefly list so I will play them soon hopefully.

Quite frankly there was a sh*t load of a games that dropped within the last few of months and it's been hard to keep up with'em all. I miss the good old days of my youth when i lived at home with my parents and had the time to play games all day. Ahhh to be young again...

10 . I don't play movie based games also played the demo , didn't care for it
9. never heard of it
8. Played it for a while, Those online bastards are just so damn cheap
7. I'll get in when its in the bargain bin, still wanna play it though it just doesn't have $60 worthy to me
6. although i don't own an xbox it deosn't appeal to me
5. I had wipeout HD to get my racer fix
4. Want to play it , love zombies, going back to statement # 6 no xbox
3. I started to play it today and i have to agree with his comment, just like oblivion in a different setting, I'm not that devoted, and its my roommates copy
2. Rented it , realized I'm a lazy gamer, good concept, but to much flailing of my arms, could only play it in small doses before i said fuk it
1. I can't knock this game, best game EVER!!!!!!! it just keeps you at the edge of ur sit, All fans of the core series shouldn't have a excuse not to play this game unless u don't own a ps3

He buys the best game of the year then doesn't play it? MGS4 isn't even the kind of whim purchase game that this might be possible for(I.e I got UT3 and didn't get round to it for an age because of huge COD4/Warhawk obsessions), it's the culmination of the most intensely crafted gaming series , springing from the mind of one genius dev,that has, in total , spanned two decades. It's smething you get because you HAVE to play it,HAVE to know what Kojima does with his characters. It's not just another shooter/another stealth game and it stands out on this list for these reasons. |Also don't get anyone with a Wii not having got NMH-what was he-stuck for choice?

Believe it or not but some people don't quite have the love for MSG4 like some of us do. I have friends that own a ps3 and won't even touch the game, no matter how great i tell them it is. It's all a matter of opinion

Anyone here play DARK SECTOR? Now that was a sweet game that no one played.
bitboi  +   2608d ago
i actually finished it and thought it was a decent action title. I just wish when you got the full suit you gained some new ability or something. And the ending was whack as hell.

Well i feel you , i have mgs too but i only played for less than an hour and same with lil'bigplanet, and now theyre just collecting dust just like my psp...........shame on me

Call me old fashioned but I'd rather read about the games that somebody has played than the ones they haven't.

Otherwise it's like buying a newspaper and reading an article by a journalist saying 'These are the news stories that I would have liked to have covered today but I just couldn't be bothered'.
