Wow, pretty interesting to see Ratchet & Clank TOD at 2nd. BioShock is number one and that's more good enough for me and plus, it has Zack & Wiki. If only Assassin's Creed was, I'd have called it perfect.
One of the best games this gen. Top 10 easily.
I know and agree that R&C TOD is an amazing game but 2nd seems a bit too much considering BioShock, COD4, ME, AC and few others are also really amazing.
I've been playing way too many games. And didn't think Assasin Creed was anything special, compared to cod4 (which had an average single player, but amazing multiplayer), bioshock, mass effect, smg, Uncharted, or R&C TOD. If I could just 3 games this year, it will be smg, r&c tod, and bioshock.
I actually believe AC was a really impressive game and one of the 2007's bests but hey, we all have our opinions.
At least we both agree on BioShock :)
I personally would give R&CF game of the year but being behind only Bioshock is great. Too bad it doesn't get all the hype like Bioshock and Super Mario Galaxy. It deserves much better sales than it's getting. I think most gamers think platformers are kid games now.
I love AC, finished it already. But because of its repetitive gameplay I wouldnt give it the game of the year. Not even top 10. I appreciate they took the free running to a whole other level but theres just wayyy too many flaws in AC to call it perfect.
AC got 3 huge cities, however they all play all the freakin same. There is no gameplay difference between the cities. Thats number one flaw. Other is the cities itself plays the same as well. There is no real difference between the rich and the poor district (except for some guy pushing you when you walk by in the poor district). There is little interaction with pretty much everything.
Combat is also bad, there is really not that many cool factors (like MKs fatality or God of Wars finishes). And almost ALL the assassinations is pretty much handled the same way. All i kept thinking was that on Hitman at least you could get some clothes and blend in and such or MGS3s camos. But no Altair has X button where you just hold your hands together.
I honestly dont think it deserves anything above 8/10. Great game, I had a hella fun time. But little to no variation. You can pretty much do only 3 things. Kill, climb and run.
Yup agree 1. bioshock 2. R&C. Although COD4 should be higher.
Fair list but COD4 should be much higher.
call of duty #7 i think it has to do with the war in Iraq they cant take the chance of getting hammered by the war haters therfore they must be PC i've seen this alot from top ten list from non gamers sites, i could be wrong but i dont think so, what do you guys think
P.S speaking of COD4 I dont mind if i do see you guys online
first of these lists I agree with, cod4 that low, not sure about that but its a good list, this guy knows his games.
Ps3 guys wouldnt you put Uncharted or Warhawk ahead of R&C ???
Not a bad list. COD4 should definately be higher (#3 or #4 at least) & I would have to put Mass Effect at the #1 spot, just for me personally. Bioshock is an incredible game, lol, i wish i could erase it & M.E. from my memory & do 'em again ! And yeah, I'd throw AC a bone & give it #10 = best climbing mechanic ever seen in a videogame + very cool swordplay. I just wish they had fleshed it out alittle more & lol, borrowed a writer from Bioware !
"Ps3 guys wouldnt you put Uncharted or Warhawk ahead of R&C ???"
Why? I give R&CF my game of the year. Uncharted and Warhawk are good too but R&CF just seems a little better. Too bad most people seem to think platformers are too kiddie to play. We need more platformers. It seems like now everything is FPS's.
R&C!... no way... not that it does not belong in the list.. but the fact that there are games on that list that weren't even nominated anywhere... shows clearly why this is fox news and not fox games... Warhawk or Encharter should of own R&C if anything...
Come on.. which sony fan here believes that R&C is a better game than Encharted and Warhawk... show yourself.
I hate Fox News, but props to the writer for thinking outside the hype with a couple of his picks.
sure there are a few substitutions that could be made here and there but its a lot better than the spike vga's and whatever drivel is served up by other mainstream outlets.
I like their mix of titles...Persona 3 didn't make many game-of-the-year lists, but was a unique title worthy of mention. Same with Zack and Wiki.
Bioshock's my Game of the Year, too, but it's nice to see some love for Ratchet, Puzzle Quest, and Phantom Hourglass.
I would have put CoD4 and Orange Box in my top five, and Uncharted would have made my top ten.
What was so great about CoD4? It's great fun, but it's JAS and brought relatively little to the table. -.-
Why is everyone playing Halo3 then???
Everyone??? it seems i'm not everyone...enjoy your overhyped game
Another imncompetent list .. Zack & Wicki, Rock Band, Super Mario Galaxy, Rachet & Clank ? omfg .. throw them away..
Throw in Halo3 and Assassins Creed instead.. MUCH BETTER! FACT
don't think your close minded opinion is fact, SMG is the funniest game i have played in a long time, best mario game indeed. I have not played Ratchet but i can see its great without playing it
