i would probably put ninja gaiden higher up on that list. gaiden should be top 10 at least alan wake since we havnt seen much can remain where its at till we see more. Pretty good list though. Left for dead isnt really on my list for games i really want to play. The game just seems to me something that belongs in the arcades but we'll see

I personally prefer Left 4 Dead over Ninja Gaiden and Alan Wake. I'm sure that isn't a popular opinion, but I've never been a Ninja Gaiden fan, and the Alan Wake static meshes (and character models) don't appeal to me. Some meshes look decent, others look horrible. When you go for realism and miss the target it ends up being kind of awkward. Left 4 Dead though looks insanely fun. Again, that's my personal opinion.

Lists like these should only be posted when the full list is online, that by no means is a rule, but I'm still tired of those lists where one entry was posted every day.

Don't understand what's so great about Gaiden. Got Sigma accidentally and can't say I enjoyed it much (after the first lame level, boss fight and amateur cut scene I kind of gave up). The art direction is so incredibly bad (like everything else created by Team Ninja it looks cheap and trashy), it completely puts me off. And the rest of the presentation is terrible as well, though that's probably partly because of the age of the original, though even the first Devil May Cry did it much better. Guess that after playing God of War, it's kind of hard to go back to games so unsophisticated in their story telling.

The fact that Ghostbusters and Mercenaries 2 are in this list's top-20 doesn't give it much credibility. There's just one game that counts for 2008 and that's LBP. The rest are just stale HD upgrades of antiquated game genres.

I think the lowest that game has been on all the other lists was like 5th.

It sooo stands out, and easily top 5 on any real list. The whole 07' gdc (game developers) feel like me. Trust that.
