So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

GR's Best of 2008

Posted on Tuesday, January 6 @ 02:37:45 Eastern by

#10 No More Heroes – A game about an otaku who dresses like Michael Jackson, sneers like Johnny Rotten, rides a bike straight out of Akira, and wields a light saber like a Jedi. No More Heroes is one of the most outlandish, frenetic
pop-cultural mash-ups ever seen on a console. That it was released for
Nintendo’s uber-casual Wii only magnifies its counter-cultural geek cred.
The combination of stylish ugliness, tight gameplay, 8-bit-era allusions,
and persistent irreverence made this title the biggest no-brainer Wii
purchase of 2008. ~ Jesse


#9 Saints Row 2 – Saints Row 2 has everything that made GTAIII fun: violence, drug use, nudity, profanity, all that stuff that a certain former Florida lawyer would tell you is corrupting your mind and forcing you to commit felonies. It had all the fun and humor without all of the social obligations and 'grittiness'.
I have spent way more time spraying crap from a hose and lighting shopping mall patrons on fire than I have spent calling my cousin to go bowling. So if you're on Live, keep a lookout for the naked asian chick with blue hair covered in tattoos and sounds like 50-Cent, homey. ~ Blake


#8 Left 4 Dead – Zombies, zombies, zombies!!! Leave it to Valve to create the best Zombiepocalypse FPS to date. It’s hard to not love a game that pits you against endless waves of mobs of the undead. Since enemy spawn points and weapons locations are randomly placed before each level, nothing ever plays the same way twice, giving L4D unlimited replay value. That sensation of panic when a Tank suddenly bursts through a wall and starts smashing you and your allies left and right never gets old. Combine all that with some great online multiplayer and you’ve got one of the biggest hits of 2008. ~ Blake



#7 Grand Theft Auto IV – For those that would expect Grant Theft Auto IV to be higher on the Top 10 list, I am surprised as well, though it's hard to say that this installment is that much of an improvement. Editorially, Grand Theft Auto IV in bold headlines as "Game of the Year" has a whopping lot of name recognition buzz, but it's just not Revolutionary enough for us. Of course, I don't think anyone would want to say that to Niko's face. Let's just hope he's too busy getting phone calls from his girlfriend to notice. ~ Nick


#6 The World Ends With You – Every time we think Square Enix has finally jumped the shark for good, they come up with something unbelievably impressive totally out of the blue; in this case, The World Ends With You. A cyberpunk thriller set in the trendy streets of Shibuya, our hero Neku must walk between two versions of reality while he plays the Reaper's Game if he wants another chance at life. Neku, however can't remember what he's lost, or how, or why he should even care about the Game. Blending psy powers, clever combat, a deep storyline and trendy fashions, TWEWY puts the DS onto the 2008 list. ~ Duke
