A Means to Disseminate Honest-to-God Leaks

Wikileaks, though technically not a wiki, provides an easy means to disseminate information that some find it desirable to share against the wishes of those who find it desirable to keep secret. Aside from the morality of the leaking itself, such a service provides a look into the activities of...

GR's Best of 2004 Awards

Posted on Thursday, January 1 @ 12:13:14 Eastern by Duke_Ferris

Welcome to our nightmare.

Trying to determine GR's Top 5 Games of the Year was a painful experience for everyone involved. The truth is that there were plenty of games worthy of being in our Top 5 - far more than just 5 - and the process of weeding out the great from the greater was wrought with anxiety, arguments, and at least one known death. It got so grim, we even considered doing a Top 10 instead just to honor more games, but then we realized that would be exactly double the workload and promptly embraced the Top 5 idea again.

So despise, discuss, or defend the list to your heart's content, but don't dare disagree that all five of the following games totally rocked 2004.


Rome: Total War

Publisher: Activision
Developer: The Creative Assembly
Platform: PC

Forget all those silly epic movies - if you want to experience largescale warfare, look no further than Rome. A technical marvel, Rome: Total War stunned PC gamers with its impressive scope, intricate detail and inimitable delivery. Strategy fans simply couldn't do any better in 2004.


Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft
Platform: Xbox

Sam Fisher goes online and kicks all kinds of ass in this fantastic sequel. Pandora Tomorrow's compelling cat-and-mouse multiplayer proves that you don't need giant guns and hectic action to be a super agent.


Katamari Damacy

Publisher: Namco
Developer: Namco
Platform: PS2

It's the little engine that could! Katamari Damacy rolls right past the overhyped heavy hitters and earns a spot in our Top 5 due to its innovative gameplay and impeccable style. Five months later and we're STILL singing those damn songs.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Publisher: Rockstar
Developer: Rockstar
Platform: PS2

Look, we're not thrilled that GTA keeps winning GR awards, but no one does what Rockstar does. San Andreas is bigger and better than its Game of the Year winning forbears, a massive undertaking that is without peers as a single-player game. It just keeps going, and going, and going....
