We can hardly believe it. 2008 is over and behind us, and boy what a year it was for gaming. Going into the year, we really didn't think it could touch 2007. Indeed, 2007 was an incredible year for video games. And yet, somehow, 2008 managed to compare. It seems every platform enjoyed at least one truly remarkable release, even if things on the handheld side of things were a little slower than we like. Like 2007, 2008 was a year of sequels. Grand Theft Auto IV. Gears of War 2. Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Fallout 3. Just to name a few. Still, the industry enjoyed the introduction of several new IPs, such as LittleBigPlanet, Mirror's Edge, Left 4 Dead and others.
Holy crap. 2008 was awesome.
So, what better way is there to celebrate the passing of a year and the dawn of a new year than our annual Best & Worst Awards? There isn't, in case you're wondering.
