What was your favorite game of 2008? Post the name of the game and why you liked it so much.
I'll go first.

My favorite game of 2008 was no doubt Metal Gear Solid 4. It was the best gaming experience I've had for a looooong time.
This may have something to do with the fact that I hadn't played any of the previous MGS games before, so I could hardly call myself a fan.
Since I had heard that MGS4 would have so much story I bought "The essential collection" and played through 1, 2 and 3, one after the other.
I finished 3 the day before 4 came out and it ended up being a long continuous experience. The way 4 wrapped up the series was ingenious and I've never seen anything like it. I still don't want to call myself a fan (that has such a negative meaning nowadays) but I am incredibly impressed with what Kojima has done. It's way ahead of its time.

That's why MGS4 was my favorite game of 2008.

In general, Konami has been an amazingly progressive company - they had the cojones make a 2D game on the PSX, which was practically unheard of. They were also smart enough to let Hideo Kojima do his crazy thing, making Metal Gear Solid into the giant its become. Unfortunately, I haven't played MGS4, so I can't nominate it.

Instead, I'm going to vote for Alone in the Dark. Why? I'll tell you. the treatment this game received at the hands of the game media was simply disgraceful. I'm not going to go and refute the 'criticisms' of it one by one, but I will say this: it controlled well, I've never fallen through a floor, the story was competently written, and for the love of GOD the driving segment was not impossible!

this is kinda supposed to be best game for 2007, but since i only got it for christmas a few weeks ago, ill have to do it for 2008 XD

Well, the game for me is Persona 3 FES. I've been dying to get this game and i finally got it. ive played it and its really awesome.

i love the gameplay of it, and for some reason it makes me want to play it more. i love how you can have multiple personas and all that. really great ;) and the dating system and the soul link system is also great since it gives you more to do.

The artwork is very good and i personally love it. the personas look a bit weird though :P

All in all i really love it ;)
