High Scores for the Games of 2007 - NY Times GOTY

The New York Times - Seth Schiesel, December 23, 2007:

For gamers 2006 was all about the introduction of Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii systems; there weren't many great games released. This year, by contrast, has delivered one fabulous interactive entertainment experience after another. Even without Grand Theft Auto IV, which was delayed until next year, 2007 has witnessed the strongest lineup of new games since the fall of 2004, when Halo 2, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and World of Warcraft were introduced.

Even with heavy hitters like Spore, G.T.A. IV and Super Smash Bros. on the horizon for 2008, it will be tough for next year to top the crop of 2007. Here are some of this year's most important, intriguing and just plain amusing games and developments:

• Best Newcomer
• Most Difficult Delivery
• Best Adaptation of an Adored Intellectual Property
• Best Unambitious Representations of the State of the Art
• Best Single-Handed Rescue of a Major Game System
• Game of the Year

The story is too old to be commented.

although i agree with their choices... i dont really look at NY times as a credible source for video games.

I would not think of NY Times as my choice of video game journalism either but this was a good article.

"Sad to say, many of this year’s big-budget, exclusive games for Sony’s PlayStation 3, including Heavenly Sword and Lair, were mediocre at best."

Heavenly Sword mediocre at best??
