I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

GR's Best of 2004 Awards

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

With so many games released this year, we decided to create a separate category for the hugely popular genre of shooting things. Some major, major sequels hit shelves in 2004, but we narrowed the field down to the ones that truly deserve to be lined up in our scope.

GAME OF THE YEAR!

Half-Life 2

Publisher: Vivendi
Developer: Valve
Platform: PC

A project five years in the making, the sequel to one of the greatest games of all time completely floored us with its unbelievable look. Leaps and bounds more advanced than anything else out there, Half-Life 2's amazing engine wasn't just for show - the gameplay, production and excellent scripting led to a thrilling shooter. Tack on Counter-Strike Source and you get the most complete PC frag package of the year.

 

THE RUNNER-UP!
Halo 2
Publisher: Microsoft
Developer: Bungie
Platform: Xbox

It broke sales records left and right, made the front page of every newspaper in the country and oh yeah, it was a pretty good game, too. If you didn't play Halo 2 online, you missed the best multiplayer fragging found on any system this year.
