Ratchet & Clank PS3 Tops 2007's Best Video Games List (Toledo Blade)

Unlike the cutting edge of visual art or film or dance, being a technology-driven art form, what is fresh and head-turning about video games often correlates with what's hot. Bold ideas tend to be better rewarded than bold marketing. For instance, about this time a year ago, last holiday season, if you play video games, sell video games, stand in line to buy hot video games for ungrateful children, watch your husband play video games like it's his second job, or just find yourself thinking about where video games are taking us, the die seemed cast, the players set.

The local paper is called "Toledo Blade", from Toledo, Ohio.

There's no panel, or voting, or judges, or jury that make up this list.

I sorta knew when I tipsed this, the contributor - if he's a Sony fanboy - would want to misinterpret this as some sort of big, important list in his headline to mislead people.

@MK_Red: Yeah, you corrected the title. Ya, I know your preference is the PS3 over the 360 and Wii, but you're not a totally fanatical case most other PS3 fanboys in here.

Needless to say, I disagree with this list. For Scene It? and Lego Star Wars to even make the list, (and Lego Star Wars isn't exactly a 2007 game,) it just pretty undermines the whole list.

But I'm sure PS3 fanboys will LOVE and heat up this list.

lol, it's the evil me :)

As for opinion, I actually kinda disagree. I love Ratchet & Clank TOD but better than BioShock, Uncharted and others?

EDIT: Thanks :)

MK_Red3818d ago (Edited 3818d ago )

My personal list would be:
2.Assassin's Creed
3.Mass Effect
4.God of War 2
5.Super Mario Galaxy

I haven't played UT3 on PS3 and from the look of it, UT3 could have a high place in may list, considering the fact that I'm a UT fanatic.

I like Assassins Creed but better than Mass Effect? as for Bioshock I bought it yesterday but wont get to play it until the weekend. My no.1 is between Mass Effect and Resistance: fall of man.

EDIT: wasn't me that disagreed

MK_Red3818d ago

Well, these are opinions and you like Mass Effect more than AC and I respect your opinon and even if you were the disagreeing person, I wouldn't argue.
Thanks for the great comment and response. I personally love AC's gameplay even more than BioShock. It was the most fun game of 2007 for me but the reason I chose BioShock as number one is because of it's art and design qualities which are the first true next-gen worthy ones IMO.

Thanks MK. Oh and I have to add COD4 to my list. that was so cool. And for anyone who says R&C or Uncharted the reason I didnt pick them is because i havent played them yet.

<center>Personaly, i dont think Ratchet and Clank should be on the top.
Not that i think its a bad game, but because there are certainly alot of games already out which are better.

Personaly, i prefer:
1.COD4 360
4. Even Assasins Creed (i feel) is alot better then Ratchet.

I think this is one of the hyped games which is in "simple terms" rather sh1t.
Alot like Halo.
The game sells it itself on previous all which have been worse then first (Alot like Halo).

Quite frankly i dont think it should be on the list.

But ofcourse, this is my opinion so dont get all annoyed if your a die hard ratchet fan, im allowed to dislike the game if i want.

azzam3818d ago

Where is uncharted in your lists ?
uncharted will be game of the year

gameplay,animation,gfx,storyl ine and characters all are superb in there fields
so 10 out of 10

Amsterdaam3817d ago

Actually, it wasn't. didn't win any awards at the VGAs. I would say it was because it came out so late, but COD4 came out around the same time and won. Bioshock is GOTY, already announced.

Gamer luv3817d ago

I think thats a little far fectched, Uncharted is cool, but goty, i dont think so.

That belongs to Cod 4, Halo 3 Mass Effect imo.

Uncharted, to much like Tomb Raider for me, and got bored of that years ago, back on Ps one, when it was then a great game, only now a game to make a quick big of cash.

Ps, graphics are good but there nothing to boast about, however one thing i will give it is the loading times. There very good i think for the size of the level and how quick it actualy loads.
