WorthPlaying's Top Games of 2008' - Countdown, 10-1

WorthPlaying writes: "So far, we've revealed the honorable mentions, top handheld and downloadable titles, top console/PC offerings, and the countdown of games 11-20. Today we're finishing up the countdown of the top 20 titles, including what WP considers to be the best game of 2008.

10. TIE - God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP) and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (NDS)

Players of the original God of War titles will find the PSP version to be scaled-down and lacking in new features. However, if you enjoy the God of War series, you'll gain some satisfaction in owning a portable version of the game. There is very little I didn't like about Chains of Olympus; I would've liked to have more camera control, and although I didn't care for the controlled Quick Time Event attacks, I'll readily admit that they offered a more cinematic experience when you're fighting the bosses. Parents should keep in mind that the game is rated "Mature" for gore, violence, nudity and sexual content. God of War: Chains of Olympus is an extremely entertaining action title that's certainly worth adding to your PSP library."

How in the hell does Metal Gear Solid 4 not wind up in the top 20 OR in the honorable mentions list, especially considering that they put Fallout 3 as the game of the year, but in the PS3 specific section they put MGS4 above Fallout 3 in their list of the 5 best PS3 games. They also failed to put Valkyria Chronicles or Resistance 2 on the best of or honorable mentions lists. R2 was also higher than Fallout 3 on the PS3 list, and so was LittleBigPlanet (#1 on the PS3 list).
Gears 2 was number 2 for the 360 list while Fallout 3 was number 1, and yet Gears 2 was #4 on the overall best list with LittleBigPlanet only at #8. So, according to them LittleBigPlanet is better than Fallout 3, and Fallout 3 is better than Gears of War 2, but then both Fallout 3 and Gears of War 2 beat out LittleBigPlanet on the over-all list. What does any of it even mean? Oh, and on the 360 specific list, they put Left 4 Dead at #3, behind Gears of War 2, but on the overall list they magically put L4D at second place, with Gears of War 2 behind it at 4th place.

Their entire list is just stupid and filled with nonsense choices.

People's opinions don't have to make sense, some people rather have mindless action over intelligent design, that's their problem not ours.

On topic, I loved Fallout 3 but it's not nearly as big as oblivion, I'm disappointed.

I'm just saying, how do you give us Left 4 Dead at #3 and Gears of War 2 at #2 for the 360 specific choices, then put Left 4 Dead above Gears of War 2 on the overall list? Does not compute. Among many other stupid things about their lists.
