Yahoo's list of the top 20 games for the Fall of 2008
can we finally agree that Yahoo is not a great source of information, especially when they made Prince of Persia the Numnber 1 game of this fall?
It's just a Top 20 with no order. The games were listed randomly
This list isn't in any specific order, it's just comprised of Yahoo's top 20 games this fall.
yup! the brainwashing is beginning. just look at the multiplatform games they all have the xbox logo's and green boxes, making it seem like there are 12 games from ms that is on the top 20 chart. and what happened to motorstorm 2, wipeout hd, naruto ultimate ninja storm, socom confrontation and valkyria chronicles and also the better and improved bioshock and eternal sonata.
Motorstorm 2 must have been forgotten, weird really since it seems to be getting a lot of attention, right? The rest were left out for massive suckage, or because they are remakes of old games alternatively released like a year ago... Daaaa? And yes, its a huge conspiracy! MS is the devil, they are trying to brainwash us by making Yahoo (because MS & Yahoo=BFF) label all multiplat games as xbox games!
you are saying that socom confrontation, wipeout hd and valkyria chronicles will suck?...... well lets see who will eat his words. by the way i just put bioshock and eternal sonata to show how good ps3's line up is for the fall and winter, even if they are ports they have been made to look better and with additional content.
PS 3 = Port Station 3 - 2 years and counting :)
"PS 3 = Port Station 3 - 2 years and counting :)" MGS4 just pwned your mathematics.
@Martini What about the Xbox 3FixMe ? 3 years and counting ? Oh wait, 3-year warranty is over!
"xbox 3Fixme" rofl
I really gotta say that you all above cracked me up! :D thnx
As an owner of all 3 next gen systems I can honestly say without any fanboyism that the PS3 is the best system this generation. I have played the best games each system has to offer and the only system that I buy games for now is the PS3. The exclusives are amazing. The only 360 game that even comes close to the PS3 exclusives is GOW. GOW although a fun game was very shallow due to the size restrictions of DVD. The boss battles were pathetic (minus berzerker). The reason why Microsoft/Yahoo are brainwashing gamers to think the PS3 is not a good system is because they are afraid of the PS3's momentum. The PS3 is now showing its power! The only way to stop its momemtum is to play politics similar to the presidential candidates. Brainwash the people to think that the system is inferior and it will work on the gullible. It wont work on smart gamers and gamers who research to find the best system for their money. It is a no brainer! 50 gig Blue ray, Cell, etc. This system is a monster! I have played through Drakes Fortune 4 times and I still rotate the camera in amazement at some of the areas in the game. The detail is amazing! In the end, I really hope 2 things happen 1) Microsoft continues to compete against the PS3. It is healthy and the gamers win. 2) Gamers learn as I did that the PS3 is an experience they cant pass up and purchase the most powerfull system on the market today. Which I have no doubt will happen. Jake
Isn't Yahoo gonna be bought by Microsoft
No MS:PR or Mirrors Edge?
is just top 20 they didn't randomly assign any numbers. Note they were being a lil more umm whats the word overly opinionated on the ps3 games the bad side. While most of the multiplatform games have the xbox 360 box weirddd.
Lol. Talk about minor details. I didn't even notice that. And, does it really matters?
I love you guys. You make my stay here, on n4g, enjoyable. Ill write a email to yahoo, to make sure they remember to put some ps3 boxes, instead of xbox boxes. You know...to get rid of their subliminal messaging. lmao. You guys are over-the-top. :)
great breakfast thanks.
....if they change it...the ps3 might have an off chance of beating the xbox this fall season. But Im sure M$ payed off yahoo so they wont change it. Im assuming M$ is also gonna buy off the consumers, so theyll beat Sony in the coming months. I cant wait for my paycheck this Friday. lmao. :)
I have to say that kind of is subliminal advertising. If for instance the only pictures you ever saw of tissues were Kleenex brand, you may think they are the only ones who makes tissues. In fact, many people (primarily elderly) who came into my old job at a retail store didn't call them tissues, just called them Kleenex. Maybe they didn't know any better because of what ads they saw. Or maybe they were just old and forgetful. Both very possible.
hmm... I thought that Motorstorm PR would've made the top 20 list
Animal Crossing: City Folk is just SOOOO much better :D
Don't forget NFS cause that will be sooooo much better. /sarcasm
Prince of Persia Tomb Raider: Underworld Need For Speed: Undercover Left 4 Dead Animal Crossing: City Folk Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Call of Duty: World at War Gears of War 2 Tom Clancy's Endwar James Bond: Quantum of Solace Resistance 2 Fallout 3 C&C: Red Alert 3 Guitar Hero: World Tour Far Cry 2 LittleBigPlanet Fable II Dead Space Lego Batman
Bubbles m8 =] I enjoy having helpful people around N4G, makes my life easyer ^_^
5 titles in that list is exclusive to 360 compared to 1 for PS 3.
Dude, are you blind? There is two PS3 Exclusives..Yes that is less, but this is an opinion of a writer, so I don't really care. Only games that I want this fall is Gears of War 2, Fable 2, LBP, Resistance 2, and SOCOM CONFRONTATION. Thats.. 300 Bucks down the drain. =.= Excluding Multiplats like Far Cry 2, and Fall Out 3.
I count three 360 exclusives. Don't label PC-360 games as 360 exclusive. I don't have a 360, but I'll be playing them.
it really shows.
Why are we listening to a search engine company? Seriously people, COME ON
I agree, Yahoo is a Phailure search engine aswell. can't wait till google drives a steak through its heart.
I Totally agree with this, What the heck does Yahoo know about Console games?, besides "Ask Jeeves" is a better search Engine, I use ask Jeeves all the time.
why there is only 3 games with PS3 covers? :) All multiplat goes with XBOX 360 covers. PS3 will be owned this Cristmas in software sales in America because of Yahoo :)
If you saw their video cast on the ps3 being in trouble I would think they are being a bias because all their points besides price was BS
Is there any decent games coming out on ps3 this year and i don't mean resistance 2 or LBP because they are both crap
Well luckily your definition of "crap" isn't the standard. Foolish console fanboys don't have any sense of what is good or not. You're comment holds just as much weight as... "Is there any decent games coming out on 360 this year and I don't mean Gears 2 or Fable 2, because they are both crap" I am sure you main intention is to get people who are "a fan of games" upset, but you should do a little more research next time and maybe your arguments will hold such weight.
...the fact that Yahoo is someway against the ps3. No Socom? No Motor Storm? They put PS3's two biggest games because if they didn't then they might have gotten shot. Lego Batman, Banjo, and James Bond over those games...you got to be kidding me. I am not any fanboy, but I do realize when there is fanboyism with an article. If you seriously doubt this, then please...reconsider your thoughts. Edit: Ooo and I forgot to add...Tomb Raider: Underworld? NFS: Undercover? Yahoo must have some really bad taste in games.
the big issue with the Yahoo's list is that it is geared towards casual gamers and what games are going to be popular this holiday season. Which would explain why games like James Bond were on the list. Since no matter how good the game turns out to be. It will sell like crazy.
for yahoo last stunt about ps3 there site i stopped reading when it said yahoo so screw there site blocked there not really into games
That shows how much the author knows about games.. But it´s his list and he´s entitle to think those are the top 20 games this fall... Edit: I would like to see mirrors edge, borderland and sacred 2 on that list, but thats just my crappy oppinion ;-)
Borderlands is not due untill '09.
Thanks for that heads up, i thought it was coming in december..
i never saw yahoo as a basher but really this story made it seem like they dont know crap about games
Thought it was a fair list, most of the games listed I wanted to play (minus Guitar Hero and WOW).
i am going to be one broke bastard come this fall.
Instead of Mirror's Edge? Have people forgotten about that game already? I'm also looking forward to Midnight Club L.A. more than Need for Speed (since they seem to put out like 3 NFS games a year)
@ Assassin297, yes LEGO Batman, very much yes, i personally cannot wait for LEGO Batman. and while Mirror's Edge looks good, i'll be waiting for reviews to see how it all comes together. I'm pretty sure Yahoo has the dumbest writers i've ever read something by. Why, when talking about Left 4 Dead did they say, "the zombies are fast like in 28 Days Later, not the slow one's from Dawn of the Dead" under why it's NOT? what f*cking fun would a game with super slow walking zombies be?! its supposed to be FAST and GRUELING and VICIOUS. not a walk in the park.... no wonder they put f*cking Animal Crossing on the damn list. Is this a list of games they think will sell alot? Because I agree Motorstorm PR should be on here, but yet, theres f*cking Animal Crossing. I think we can all agree, the Wii has absolutely no games this holiday season, and it makes me laugh :)
This is an ok list. I think Lego Batman can be replaced with Socom though. Just my opinion.
doesn't socom deserve to be there? Everyone knows that Socom has a huge fan base in North America...
Well its not that huge, and #2 the beta proved it sucks ass.
Everyone has there own opinion, as do you.
they shield Americans from the truth & have them believe there is no better alternative. why do you think we all think they are dumb. They are. Therefore all multiplats I own will be used copies from gamestop. That's my plan to hurt them a little. no trophy no sell
hahahahaha shut up [email protected] hahahahahahaha Stop acting like you know something about America. You don't.
Calling all Americans dumb?, "reported"
otherwise Bush would have been out of the ring 5 years ago. jk
october is gonna be insane. guess ill just rob a bank :P so many good games in that month
hahahahah PS3rd is such crap hahaha
Can we all agree, either the yahoo writer is a xboxfandroid, or ms has paid for everygame shown here to use 360 box cover art. The only ones that aint are the ps3 exclusives and prince of persia. M$ has shown, You really can buy people.
why ps3 fans cant face the facts that ps been getting props for years but when something new come out and dominate they dont understand it they hate on it true fact i should know im black. people fear what they dont understand to me dream cast was the .= of the ps2 i still take a dream cast over the ps2 and a pc over the ps3 360 allways got a home with me so what about three rings cuz of the three rings i got anew 360 not referbish one but ps3 fans dont tell you how to get a game out of they system when its stuck there goes a hole nother system
bush paid fox news not to talk bad about him and everybody knows he is a f up what im saying is have money have nuts mony talk bs walk
Jacobie74 you are a supreme dumbass "bush paid fox news not to talk bad about him and everybody knows he is a f up what im saying is have money have nuts mony talk bs walk" - that is what YOU wrote, which doesnt make your precious 360 look good, it looks like what people like to suspect, that MS pays for to have good things spread about them, or slightly jab the opposition. "360 allways got a home with me so what about three rings cuz of the three rings i got anew 360 not referbish one but ps3 fans dont tell you how to get a game out of they system when its stuck there goes a hole nother system" - what the f*ck are you talking about? You're pretty much saying "yes, the 360 breaks, but at least they send me another one!" which doesnt sound good. and the only people who would get a game stuck in their PS3 are obviously people like you, who don't know how to actually write coherent sentences - which means you lack severe intelligence. and what does your comment have to do with this article anyway? NOTHING, f*cking fan boy. anyway, loads of good games coming this year for PS3 and 360. good thing i saved up the money for it.... back to eating Ramen noodles for 6 months.
whats hot and whats not for meself :]
PS3 sucks that is the truth, because i cannot lie!
Again, too many 360 exclusives and multi-plats to care about getting a ps3.
Not too many games that seem left out, I'm glad Dead Space got some mention. Also surprised that the Wii got mentioned at all, probably the last thing I was expecting to see, still don't plan on getting Animal Crossing though...
I wouldn't buy half that crap. Left 4 Dead, Quantum of Solace, Banjo-Kazooie? Jeeeesus! Is Yahoo M$' b17ch?
So.... looking at the list I would say this is NOT a list of my TOP 20 games. Many of these are not even on my list and ones that are on my list like Rise of the Argonauts are not there. So, to each their own I guess. Lego Batman - Not on any of my list Dead Space - Still Debating Fable II - Must get, loved the first one LittleBigPlanet - Not on my list. I dunno, much like viva piniata, animal farm or whatever, these types of cutesy games really dont interest me. But thats just me I know a lot of people are looking forward to it. FarCry2 - Must get, I loved the first one Guitar Hero - one day when they are cheap I may get one of these C&CL: Red Alert3 - Really? A top game? I mean I may or may not pick it up but...really? Fallout 3 - Yes I will get it, loved Morrowind and Oblivion Resistance 2 - Looks like a great game James Bond - Movie tie in and I dont even like the movies. I expect the worse, but if somehow its the awesome then I may try it... not on a list currently though Endwar - I will probably be picking this one up Gears 2 - Must get, loved the first one Call of Duty - Must get, love the series (yes I even liked 3...not as much as 2 and 4 but it was still decent) WoW - I have made a point to stay away and this will not change it. I am sure lots of people are looking forward to it though. Banjo-Kazooie - Really? I top game? again I may pick it up cheap sometime....but still Animal Crossing - see littlebigplanet comment Left4Dead - Multiplayer only (pretty much) and zombies, two things that I am not interested in Need for Speed - meh, may get it cheap Tomb Raider - I did like the last one, so I will take a look Price of Persia - looks interesting so I will take a look.
