Ok... why would this guy bring up NHL 08, a game THAT CAME OUT IN 2007? NHL 08 is old news whereas NHL 09 was and still is excellent. I can agree that Sonic Unleashed was a big let down (becoming quite common with Sonic games unfortunately) but why would you post this article and only list roughly 2 games?

Maybe you should try playing them. There is a difference.

Honestly, in my OPINION, I was most disappointed with GTA4. It was such a technical leap forward, and I love how Rockstar added Trophies... but the actual game itself was far more sparse and more repetitive than San Andreas. It's not a bad game by any means, and online can be fun if you aren't trying to be competitive, but I feel like it's a step back in the GTA franchise itself. Niko rocks, true, but I expected more.

You're entitled to your opinion, and I agree that it was one of the many disappointments this year. Grand Theft Auto 4 was a solid game, but it forgot one of the most important aspects of the series; fun. There wasn't a lot of fun to be had outside of the online.

I know your opinion is a popular one , especially among old time gta fans , but i disagree .
Never was a huge gta fan , bore me quite fast and easily , and it's even worse for it's goofy clones such as saint row .

Imo GTA4 was a huge step forward , less pointless fooling around , a more story driven (yet free) and cohesive experience .
I could still eliminate bystanders when i felt like it , but finally there was a plot and a mood behind .
At least more than "what's up i'm da hood" San Andreas with just it's nice mini games , and more than the borefest that was imo gta 3 .

Of course it could still be that way with keeping the mini games and activities , but they reinvented themselves on next gen console and that was a huge task already on their hand . I'm sure they'll do better next time or in dlc , when it comes to "fun" content

I hear ya Baka. I liked the plot as well, and characters... but I miss the whole "once the game is done, goof off" aspect of the title. I thought the variety of the missions also suffered. It's not a bad game by any means, but I just felt it coulda been so much more after playing San Andreas.
