IGN AU's 10 Best Games of 2008

IGN AU writes: "It's that time of the year again – a period of intense list-making, endless and heated game debates and subsequent fistfights as a result. It's also a bumper time to be a gamer. Regardless of your console preference, the closing months of 2008 were chock-full of amazing gaming experiences and we've spent a good long while dissecting all of our reviews and gaming sessions to determine IGN AU's 10 Best Games of 2008.

We've ranked the best games from ten to one, as well as listed a few honorable mentions for great titles that didn't quite make the top 10.

This isn't just an objective, score-based list, either; we've placed a lot emphasis on the fun-factor - as well as how the games moved their genres forward and contributed to the wider creative industry."

what kinda lit is this? mgs4 at 9, lbp at 7, R2 at 10? and gta4 at 1????!!!

Danja3603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

MGS4 - 9
LBP - 7

Fable 2 - 6 ???

R2 - 10 ....NO Gears 2 on the list...thats a surprise...

..MGS4 is better than all the games on this list..and GTA4 doesn't even deserve to be in top 5...

No ..Valkyria Chronicles ????
No . Persona 4 ???

RememberThe3573603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

I have to completely disagree with this list. MGS4 is my top game of the year. I would say something like this:
9.Left 4 dead
8.Resistence 2
7.Prince of Persia
6.Valkyria Chronicles
5.Dead Space
4.Fallout 3
3.Gears 2

Something like that...

Can someone please point why GTA4 got such high praise, seriously the game wasn't as good as it is made believed to be and 90% person of the people who have played this game we'll tell you so and seriously no Gears of War 2 but Mirror's edge up there? Wow...well everyone has there own opinions, Oh well..

badz1493603d ago

came out with this list?? this list is full of FAIL!!

Danja3603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

9.No More Heroes
8.Gears 2
7.Resistane 2
6.Dead Space
5.Fallout 3
4.Valkyria Chronicles
3.Persona 4 - not out yet but it's the best RPG of the year

GTA4 is #11....^.^

xhi43603d ago

Metal Gear should've been 1

Little Big Planet should've been 2

Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 should've been either 3,4 or 4,3

callahan093603d ago

Mirror's Edge shouldn't be on there, and Gears 2 should. The order's all botched. GTA IV at number 1? Puh-lease, that is the most over-rated game of all time.

Tiberium3603d ago

mgs4 at #9. GTA IV totally deserves to be #1. It takes sandbox-gameplay to the next level. I salute you IGN AU.

jammy_703603d ago

as soon as i saw MGS4 at 9, i thought do i really wanna go on to seee whats better than MGS4 in this crappy list, what idiots,
fable 2 better than MGS4 haha what fools and mirrors edge and fallout 3 beetter than mgs4? this list is so so bad its so fake!

Nice to see Mirror's Edge getting decent props

soljah3603d ago

let me put this out there

should a game with a # next to it r2,gears2,fallout3.gta4,etc. deserve the same attention for game of the year as a new ip such as
left for dead,dead space, mirrors edge, and my favorite for best game LITTLE BIG PLANET

GTA #1 WTF!!!!!!! are they doing the list backwards!?
and were is Gears of war 2? it deserves at least 10th place

RememberThe3573603d ago

I was thinking the backwards thing too when I first read it.
