After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

GR's Best of 2004 Awards

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

Brainiacs prefer strategy and jocks dig sports, but everyone likes a good action game. The biggest genre is also filled with some of the best games we've played in ages. Here's the cream of the enormous crop.

GAME OF THE YEAR!

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Publisher: Rockstar
Developer: Rockstar
Platform: PS2

Often imitated but never dupliated, the GTA series stands alone atop the action genre. San Andreas is more than just another sequel - it's the best GTA yet. Featuring addictive, frantic gameplay set in an immense, gritty world, this game contains more outrageous things to do than you can wave a glock at. Three times another charm for Rockstar.

 

THE RUNNER-UPS!
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft
Platform: Xbox

Though it came out early in 2004, Pandora Tomorrow's brilliant mix of stealth and action created an easy winner. Its unrivaled sense of tension and beautiful delivery set the stage for the fantastic, revolutionary online experience. Sam Fisher gets another hard-earned medal from GR.



Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Publisher: Konami
Developer: Konami
Platform: PS2

Solid Snake takes to the hills in what might be the final installment of this legendary action series. Great new gameplay features and several memorable boss battles help Hideo Kojima's vision slither its way into a GR Best of 2004 award.

 

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
Publisher: Sony
Developer: Insomniac Games
Platform: PS2

We've been fans of the R&C games for a while, but Up Your Arsenal literally blew our minds with its awesome combat and deep weaponry. Don't be fooled by the cute, furry outfits - these hardcore mascots deal with stress by blowing it up in one of the best action experiences this year.
