I may be into that after X-mas Thund3rball. See I re-gifted it to my brother 3 weeks ago as we have this unspoken agreement not to buy each other gifts anymore. We just trade back and forth the absolute worst gifts we get and try to top each other which gift stink the most. He's in the lead this year as he switched up X-mas and B-day gifts and gave me a Christmas fruit cake for my B-day. We laughed so hard we cried when he came for a visit and it was holding my front door open for him. I suspect he may not top my QoS so he may try something sneaky this year and re-gift my re-gifted QoS back to me. lol

I'll let you know.

Best = Call Of Duty : World At War - Crysis - Crysis Warhead

Worse = Bah, I could not tell. I don't have much time to game. So I only buy games that have been proven to be good. And most of the times, i buy the games 1 months after their release. Exception of Call Of Duty : World At War since i have been a die hard Cod series fan since the beginning of my gaming life. I bought it the first day it was released and have been playing it since. I must admit that i was really disappointed of Far Cry 2 tho...

A little + The game i played the most since i am into computer gaming = Max Payne (The original), Unreal Tournament (The original too) and Call Of Duty + It's expansion - United Offensive.

I only got around to them this year I got GOW, Quake 4 and UT3 for Christmas 2007 so unless I am a speed demon there is now way I could have played them all before 2008.

Haven't played much from 2008 but from what I have:

Best: CoD World at War

Worst: Spore. So much hype turned into a real disappointment.

Yet to play Fallout 3

The best for this year is Fallout 3 bar none. The gameplay is solid with so much content that you can play for months, that is, if your not playing 12hrs a day, and more content on the way, " yaaaay" The graphics, while still in the Oblivion Era, have been tweaked, and are done(with the audio as well) to really give you that "your are alone in the world" feel.

As for the worst, all I can do is keep going back to Aquaman Battle for Atlantis, the worst game ever made. X-Play reviewed it, and it was so bad they even pulled their video review.

1. It's Aqauman

"You know how sometimes you get upset that the people policing your neighborhood are a bunch of fat donut critics who spend most of their time trying to trick you into speeding tickets? It could be worse. They could be Aquaman."

2. Any game by a company called Lucky Chicken should be warning enough. :)

Best without a doubt in my mind is Fallout 3. Close runner-ups are Dead Space and Mass Effect.


Bad: No idea, I don't buy bad games :p
