Man, how could i forget. IMO, the best game of 2008 is Metal Gear Solid 4 on PS3.

I went through the game 2 times. 25-30 hours each times.

This game is a movie. It was awesome to go through it and find all the flashbacks etc.. Loved this game from the beginning until it's end.

Worst-Spore, FarCry2 and Space Siege.
Spore had so much potential and fell flat for me, the creature creation was so little of it, building cities and the entire space stage were dull and boring in my opinion.
FarCry2 was more repetitive and boring than oblivion, and I liked oblivion. Its graphics were good, fire effects were good but not perfect, healing was well done, it was the rest of it that was poorly done, gaurd posts respawned way to fast, driving felt like the newest need for speed, missions were all identical except for the odd main story line ones. There was no main story, and I really did not understand the end. It became a chore to finish.
Space Siege, what can I say, first game from GPG I have not liked. Poor graphics, poor gameplay and the becoming a cyborg had no feeling to it, you were suppose to be sacrificing you're humanity but you had no attachment to it in the begining.

Best Fallout3, L4D, Grid
All just awesome games, what can I say.
Fallout3, graphics were a bit dated but still good enough to be overlooked, game was a bit easy and there was no point to 3rd person. VATs was awesome. I have not played to the end yet but have spent several weeks scouring the waste land and i'm at the point where I am going to finish my good character and start on me evil.
Grid-possible the best racing game I have ever played, realistic, great graphics, great cars, great tracks, cant wait for the F1 game to come from codemasters.
L4D-Possibly the best online game to play with friends, challenging and fun as hell in a group. VS mode is also great. The Director is well done and I have yet to play through a level that was remotly like the last.

Worst: Fifa 09, honest to GOD, why did they even release it.. Imo the graphics is good, but the static issue needs to be sorted out, you install a game straight out of the Box and play it, graphics should be good, with a few tweaks and patches it would be better, but Fifa09, you see lines running all over the screen, like you need to edit game files and change settings in order to play, even though the cripple is still there, just on the top of the screen, 80% of the people who have the game, have this issue with no fix yet, in fact I've heard many even say that EA SPORTS privately confirmed that Fifa 09 was an alpha release, Fifa 2010 will be an official beta release, and there after will be a different game. I spent only $30 on it, but it was money totally wasted.

One more in the worst games list would be Top Spin 2 for PC.

Best for me has been Brothers in arms Hells Highway, COD WaW, Farcry2, L4D
Worst: Secret Service Ultimate Sacrifice. What a crock of u know what that game was. and Exodus from the Earth. With todays graphic engines and etc u think they wouldn't make games that look and feel this bad. Just curious has anyone played Lengendary yet

Looking forward to it! I want to buy it for the GF since she did not liked Pro street and i didn't either. Undercover seemed to have left the track race.... And more into the streets things like the early NFSs.

From the little bit I've played so far, it is very like NFS: Most Wanted, but with a new storyline.

back on topic:

Worst: Space Siege. I was a big Dungeon Siege fan, bought the hype, should have waited for the reviews.

Best: CoD:WaW and Fallout 3.

What miggs said. A HWC review that isn't all smiles and thumbs up beavers I can't wait to read that. I never played NFS undercover but hey if it's a stinker I'd love to see the Jekyle side of the usually friendly beaver. Maybe finally a DAM BAD award or a DAM BUSTER award, or perhaps Angry Beaver, Stinky Beaver, Chipped tooth award....lol
