    1. The game that made me say "Wow!" is... Metal Gear Solid 4. Runner up- Fable 2 and Gears of War 2, GTA4

    2. The game I wish I hadn't spent money on is... I wasn't totally unhappy with anything I bought, but since I never got around to playing it, Super Paper Mario for the Wii.

    3. The game I spent most time thinking about when I wasn't playing it was... Probably Metal Gear Solid 4.

    4. The best game I (legitimately) downloaded was... Castle Crashers!

    5. My game of the year is... Metal Gear Solid 4. I loved Fable 2, loved GTA4, loving Fallout 3, and loved Gears of War 2 thanks to all it's co-op goodness, but MGS 4 I felt had the best story, incredible controls, and well balanced difficulty all wrapped in a wonderful audio and visual package. No other game got me this attached to a main character like this for quite some time, making me like Snake more then I ever did.

    Overall I think it was a great year, and I've yet to even play some of the games I wanted to, like Little Big Planet and Dead Space.

    I do want to say that 2008 was a pretty good year for games and it seems like 2009 may be even better.


    1. The game that made me say "Wow!" is...COD World at War (as in wow this really sucks after modern warfare)

    2. The game I wish I hadn't spent money on is...GHWT (I love the guitar, but the game was horrible compared to RB2)

    3. The game I spent most time thinking about when I wasn't playing it was...Fallout 3

    4. The best game I (legitimately) downloaded was...Street Fighter HD Remix

    5. My game of the year is...Fallout 3

    6. Game I am most looking forward to in 2009 and hope beyond hope that it doesn't disappoint like every other game made for this person is ::drumroll:: Batman Arkham Asylum
