    I'm trying to remember playing a video game in 2008. I did play wii at a few parties. I'm not sure that counts though.

    I've never played any of those, let alone heard of a few. My vote goes to Super Mario Galaxy.

    I recommend Fallout with a slightly unnerving degree of zeal.

    Torn between GTA4 and Metal Gear 4. Honorable mention to Fallout 3. Holy sequels!

    Neither of these games are close to best game of the year... that's why they are not on the list. I can appreciate MCP liking Dead Space, but Call of Duty... merely suggesting it could be in the running for best game is failtastic.

    I haven't played any of these. But, the only one that appeals to me is LittleBigPlanet.

    Prince of Persia looks pretty...

    I liked Super Mario Galaxy.

    Too bad Final Fantasy VIII isn't out yet.

    Just curious -- I have not played it, not even sure what it is. But, the graphics looked really nice.

    What is it that you don't like?

    No Fable II? Come on now.

    And the answer is Wii Fit.

    Twas a good year for gaming. I am thoroughly enjoying the hell out of Littlebigplanet right now, and I loved every minute of MGS 4. Especially the insane motorcycle sequence and boss battles.

    Out of those choices I only played Mirror's Edge (awesome, but not GOTY), GTA4 (also awesome, but not as good as MGS4), MGS4 (my pick), and Prince of Persia (terrible).

    mgs4 blew me away, and fallout 3 was incredible. little big planet is awesome, but not game of the year quality.

    er, i mean, yeah, ufc games are all i play, you fags.
