'Bioshock' tops best-of video games in 2007; hype machine 'Halo 3' most overrated

The staff at theage.com.au writes,"The over-hyped console wars are so last year."

"In 2007, a bounty of actual games finally mattered more than nerdy debates over each system's technological merits. And for the first time since Pong bounced its way into our living rooms, it seems as if video games are again being relished by all sorts of folks."

"That retired couple next door? They're probably better than you at Wii Sports."

"Here's our annual look at the best and worst in video games, 2007 edition."

Although I like Lair, I think it was fair and balanced. Don't know about dying to play Spore though.

marionz3516d ago

thanks to the patch that finally fixed bioshock i do believe that bioshock deserves to be the top game of 2007

good thing i have it on pc. THE REAL VERSION OF THE GAME, not the dumbed down one.

ok game.......but forgettable.

*starts playing gtasa on pc*

Basically he is trying to say Xbox 360 version is the dumbed down version. How? I don't know, but I just wanted to clear that up in case someone didn't get it.

Few flaws inthere:

"BEST GAME: "BioShock." A first-person shooter turned morality play, a thinking person's action game, a piece of electronic fiction with a soul. There are many positive ways to describe this gripping game and they're all true. There's just nothing else like this eerie vision of an undersea social experiment gone horribly wrong. Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC, $59.99, Rated M."

Bioshock is a great game indeed, GOTY, but not for PS3.

and that's all i'll say mart

Close_Second3516d ago

...yeah, but that's all you can say.

However, before you jump on the fanboy bandwagon. Drakes Fortune WILL NOT BE a case of Gears of War which will still be being used as the graphical benchmark some 12 month after its released. the PS3 has some huge titles on the way which will continue to set new standards. I just hope they live up to the early hype...Lair anyone???

This time next year we will know if the PS3 will have the 10 year staying power its proclaimed as having. We all know the PS3 is a veritable powerhouse but it will take all the big guns (i.e. GT5, KZ2, MGS) to deliver on their promise in 2008.

Too bad Bioshock isn't on the PS3. Then it could be great instead of just good.

HCS3516d ago

Nice try, bioshock isn't on ps3.

rofldings3516d ago

No, but it is on my PC.

Bnet3433516d ago

A GOTY being on PC doesn't really benefit the PS3, or does it? Also, you said you hated western games, I doubt you have one like BioShock. :/

rofldings3515d ago

Me? I never said I hated western games, I have plenty of shooters and such.

I also enjoy lots of jrpgs too.

You must be thinking of someone else :/

felidae3516d ago

well. Uncharted owns Bioshock

tony3516d ago (Edited 3516d ago )

ah?

bootsielon3516d ago

And you can't even compare them. One is kind of a Sandbox Sci-Fi FPS with RPG elements, the other is a linear 3rd person shooter with platforming and adventure elements. Both have high production values though.

I played Bioshock on the PC and it stinks. There are like what... 8 enemy character models throughout the whole game? LOL! And the plot was so predictable, not to mention the AI was weak. Plasmids were useless, last boss was easy and ending was short (both endings). Wasted my $50 bucks

OOG FunK3516d ago

lmfao how the hell was the plot predictable????

since u dont even realize what is going on till near the end of the game and there is no way to know.....

pfft pleasee

Lord_Mike3515d ago (Edited 3515d ago )

**BIOSHOCK SPOILER DO NOT READ**
Maybe I'm just a better gamer than you. It's so obvious the first time I pumped plasmids in myself I knew LMAO. Also with Atlas telling me what to do for no good reason throughout the entire game, I'd knew I was gonna face him in the end.
