A Letter to the Big “N"

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

GR's Best of 2008

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

#5 Rock Band 2 – I must admit something: I was Rock Band-ed out. Perhaps I was too absorbed, too jaded, too involved in wanting to "expert" each part, but then again, perhaps it was Fallout 3. Either way, it was not until Game Revolution had its annual Christmas get-together that I was reminded of why Rock Band 2 won me over in the first place - the solid peripherals, the rich catalog of downloadable songs, and the refined multiplayer modes. Sorry, Guitar Hero World Tour, but Rock Band 2 has won this battle too. ~ Nick


#4 Braid – Imagine stepping foot in a Monet painting, a picture speckled with dabs of radiant colors that meld together without a single stroke of the brush. It is here that you search for the princess and open your eyes to a world of time and challenging puzzles, of keys and trickery. May you fit the pieces together and be lost in the subtlety, the music, the homage to the jump of Mario, for Braid has changed the landscape of downloadable titles now and forever more. ~ Nick


#3 Metal Gear Solid 4 – Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots proved that yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks. Whether you think I'm talking about Solid Snake or Hideo Kojima is up to you. With vastly improved controls, a tongue-in-cheek look at itself, and just plain old more fun, MGS4 completely revived the series. The best wartime stealth gameplay of any game is the reason to pick up this title and the smart (if crazily complex) story is the reason to keep playing it. We just wish they made it for the Xbox 360 too, because half of you are missing out on one of the best of 2008. ~ Duke



#2 Fallout 3 – People say that "war never changes". How simple they are. They do not see that peace is unattainable, that life will always struggle to be alive, for those are the rules and they always will be. Thus, the saying is redundant, something said with power to mask its lack. But then, I can grin widely, for I know the truth: That for man, by his being, must fight. He is rebellion. He is the seeker of dreams that would contradict his nature. And thus he falls until he fights once more. For man finds peace in war and war in peace, the strength I have ever searched for. ~ Nick


#1 Little Big Planet – Other than having a lead character with the best worst name ever, Little Big Planet did everything. The sense of childlike wonder and curiosity it instills from the very beginning is what developers dream of creating their entire lives. Not only is the core game fun, but we’ve already seen a cornucopia of inspired user-created levels and contraptions made using the in-game level creator. Little Big Planet is a game within a game that is only limited by what your imagination can come up with. And I don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface of what it’s capable of. I wouldn’t be surprised if folks were still making things in Little Big Planet years from now.  ~ Blake
