Christopher T. Fong of San Francisco Chronicle picks five top PC games in 2008. (January 1, 2008)
Fallout 3, Spore and StarCraft 2 = PC gaming is definitly NOT dead. Sure, Fallout is multi and SC2 may be but they've always been and will always be classic PC games. As for Spore, it's from Will Wright; nuff said. It has a point about possiblity of Fallout 3 ending up a BioShock rip-off but that wouldn't be too bad since most BioShock's themes and atmosphere is kinda borrowed from Fallout (Don't like using word rip-off because BioShock is a full classic on its own IMO).
Agree to the fifth power!
I don't see the comparison between Bioshock and Fallout 3 at all. Bioshock was very linear and very restricted in terms of exploration. Fallout on the other hand is completely wide open. You just do what you want. You don't even have to play the actual story if you don't want to! All they had to tell me was StarCraft 2 though. I might as well just get a divorce when that game comes out because I will forget I even have a real life for months.
Just speaking of 2008 in general, I think it has the potential to have better games on every system than in 2007. Super Smash Brothers Brawl has a good chance at being the best Wii game since launch. Final Fantasy XIII (and versus), Little Big Planet, and possibly Killzone 2 will trump any 2007 PS3 release (in my humble opinion). Fallout 3 and Starcraft 2 may make for the best PC gaming in many years. And well..I'm not as up to date with 360 2008 releases. But if Gears 2 comes out I'm sure that'll be kick-ass, just like the original. And I think I just mentioned the tip of the iceberg for all four systems (including the PC).
I've got to disagree with you on Brawl. While it will be a really fun game, I don't think the best Wii game title will remain in hands of Mario's Galaxy advanture. Agreed on everything else, from Fallout 3 / SC2 on PC making it one of the best years to PS3's Killzone 2, LBP and FFXIIIs. On 360 front, don't forget Ninja Gaiden 2 and Alan Wake as well as other possible games like Killer Instinct 3, Banjoo and such :) Plus, we will also be getting GTA4, RE5, Burnout Paradise, GT5, Spore, Fable 2 and many more. A truly great year for all PC, PS3, 360 and Wii users.
but I couldn't have agreed more. So when you getting a console bro? I'm still playing Mario Galaxy, Final Fantasy 8/12/folklore, and Eternal Sonata on the 360. I'm really dragging on FFXII. All console have have good games in 2008. I'm actually selling Folklore, do we have a buy/sell section? Fallout 3 and Starcraft will keep PC gaming alive , as well as plenty other games. And for Killzone 2 being a beast, I think GT4 will sell a lot more, if not MGS4 because not everyone is into shooter, and I'll say it again, not everyone is into shooters but MGS4 appeal to all regions [EU, States, Asia].
