Grand Theft Auto IV Features for PS3

On: PS3Xbox 360PC

2007 was a great year for video games. We handed out three 10/10 scores and were bombarded with great releases. At the end of the year, as we picked our top 10 games of 2007 we looked to 2008 and sighed. "It'll never be as good as this year" we thought. But were we wrong? Now E3 2008 is over and the big publishers have revealed their full 2008 line-ups (barring any big, unexpected surprises) we can take a stab at working out if 2008 has got what it takes to take on the might of 2007's Halo 3, Mass Effect, BioShock and Call of Duty 4. We thought it would be a one-sided blood bath, but things weren't nearly so clear cut.

We clearly don't know for sure which games due in the remainder of 2008 will be brilliant. We have seen them all though, in many cases numerous times. Using our combined thoughts on which games are looking the best and by picking out the best games of the year so far we've come up with a list of ten games to go head to head against the top 10 games of 2007.

Top 10 Games of 2007
Halo 3
Mass Effect
BioShock
CoD4
Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction
The Orange Box
Super Mario Galaxy
PGR4
Crackdown
God of War 2

Top 10 Games of 2008
GTA4
MGS4
Spore
Gears of War 2
Left4Dead
Mirror's Edge
LittleBigPlanet
FarCry 2
Fallout 3
Fable 2

Head to page two to see which year has the most 10/10 video games.

Ditto on crysis. I like these type of summary lists and top reviews. I stay current, but not that current. Makes my shopping list earlier. I'm one of those shop and buy a year later and get games cheaper. I do that especially with PC games. So, again thanks for the list. And yes, Halo 3 is absolutely tops in 2007. Yeah, maybe not the greatest, but by far the most important series in gaming and the biggest hype. That counts right?

WoW? You've got to be kidding me. It definitely doesn't deserve to be on the list.

OK, nice feature, but seriously: Smash Bros Brawl NOT among the best games of 2008? That's insane.

IRohanIgame: Crysis was intended to be on the rest of 2007 list. Somehow we forgot to add it. Thanks for pointed it out. It also nearly made our Top 10 of 2007. It was in the top 20 until we whittled that down to 10.

Well, do u guys have any blood-fued sort of thing with crytek???
THEN WHY THE BLOODY HELL ARE U SO BIASED WHILE HANDLING CRYSIS???
First u under-rate it , to me it was a 10/10 game and damn better than cod4 , mass effect , etc(and to me itz the game of the year)
Also i 've so far completed the game more than 10 times and i have no intentions to stop the number growing as the game's so very dynamic ,each time u play the levels come out differently(and i didnt even touch Mass effect onnce after completing it )
And u people havent even mentioned Crysis in the list of the remaining good games of 07 and nor in the articles.I ask u???

"This is madness , this is blasphemy , this is.........." -Crysis
"No Dude ,this is their love for X-Box 360 and itz games" -Call Of Duty 3
"Hmph" -Resistance,fall of man
"So thats why we dont get decent scores" -Mgs4
"....................." -Crysis

Just joking.But seriously crysis shud be on the list

uuhh you do realize you put Super Smash Bros. Melee instead of Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the last page

Other than that an excellent feature. I Cant wait for Fallout 3 and Mirrors Edge.

Forza or PGR? Just buy a ps3 and get Gran Turismo, better than the both of them.

If videogamer.com give a PS3 exclusive a 10/10 then 2008 will be the best year ever lol, no chance of that happenin though.

For PS3 owners this has definatley been a better year though still had a good few games last year, Motorstorm definately under-rated! Still playin it!

Unless there's a bunch of titles released this year that nobody told us about and turn out to be hits then 2007 was one of the best years for gaming in... years. It was the year that gamers were pulling their hair out over whether to get Assassin's Creed or COD4, or Forza 2 or PGR 4, or they were nicely loaded and got all of them.

2007 was basically defined by the number of "Versus" threads popping up from gamers wanting to get the best value for their parents' money.

Too Human is up for a "Most likely to blow my socks off 2008" award, but even if it gets a 10/10 it's an action-RPG so not quite as 'mainstream' as the usual titles.

Therefore I think 2007 will be remembered as a vintage year, and deservedly so. 2008 is a cracking year for RPGs though, so an RPG-fan might push for 2008 making it two great years in a row, and of course 2009 sees FFXIII arrive ;)
