"2009 is here and so it's time to wave goodbye to the best games of 2008 by announcing our Game of the Year as voted by Gamezine readers.
2008 was a bumper year bursting with classic video games. There were so many great titles that we were unable to include a lot of them in our top games. Call of Duty: World at War, Prince of Persia, Braid, Left 4 Dead, Valkyria Chronicles, Fable 2, and No More Heroes are all honourable mentions.
The following games were either first or second in Gamezine's platform specific awards, and were thus included in reader voting for the Gamezine 2008 Game of the Year;
# Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
# Fallout 3
# Grand Theft Auto IV
# Gears of War 2
# Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3
# Mario Kart Wii
# Super Smash Bros. Brawl
# Professor Layton and the Curious Village
# The World Ends With You
# God of War: Chains of Olympus
# Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
So which game did you vote as the best game of the year?"
