We all know what the end of the year means… Sure, there’s that celebration where we get presents and eat lots of food and it gets colder (at least here in the States), but there’s also that other special factor: “best of (insert year here)” lists! It’s when everybody starts listing off what was cool about the year before, and it’s addicting as hell to read them.
Heck, even TIME has put together a best video games of 2008 list, and the results are about par for the course, I’d say.
Breakdown is after the jump:
1. Grand Theft Auto IV
4. Rock Band 2
5. Gears of War 2
6. Dead Space
7. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
8. Hunted Forever
While it’s interesting that none of those are Wii games (oops), and that Fallout 3 is missing, overall it’s not too bad, especially for a magazine that isn’t known for gaming opinion. Though I’ve never played Fieldrunners (it’s a Newgrounds flash game).
What do you guys think? Any others that are missing or should be replaced?
