the wii won the platform round? huh

IGN Australia? No need to read the article, aussie sites always favor the PS3.

madmonkey03600d ago

it looks like it is done based on the scores from across the ign range, if you look it has all the ratings from each region for each game, so it being from au doesnt mean that is is biased.

They strategically chose to leave out certain 360 games. Why not include all games for each platform instead? If they are going to use multiplat games why not mention which version is better than the other?

I find the list extremely subjective since they have handpicked the winners.

UnwanteDreamz3600d ago

Not to nitpick but the whole "this version is better on 360 than PS3" thing is subjective. Just thought I'd point that out.

Yeah I guess some people prefer unstable 30 fps to stable 30 fps...

saints row 2 was awesome

it's like a younger brother to san andreas,very underrated imo,it should get from 9 to 9.3 imo


the most underrated game of 2008 is sr 2

madmonkey03600d ago

i agree with you there, i even think sr 2 was better than gta4

heosphuros3600d ago

dont know about sr2 but gta 4 was overhyped trash.

madmonkey03599d ago

definetly worth playing, i agree with you on gta4, but most games with that much hype tend do be dissapointing.

youve played all those 360 games before... on ps2.
