Best Video Games of 2008


The Top TenXW

1Grand Theft Auto IV

This game changed lives its considered one of the greatest video games of all time, not the best GTA though - roblist

So much to do I would say only about 15% of players got 100% game completion.

Already legendary game franchise and one of the most successful too. Not to mention influential.
Grand Theft Auto rules game world - Magnolia

it's like your playing a real live person - pierrerock

2Super Smash Bros. Brawl

best nitendo game ever EVER and where is call of duty 5 this and that shood be #1 and #2 - edhemsoccer

Is number 2 in the lost of best videogames of all time and it's the most rated videogame of the 21th century, so... WHY THE HELL IS IN 3?

Easily the best AND easily the best fighting game othe rthan mele. Sorry but Melee's better but this game is still better than Soul Calibur, Mortal Kombat, and even Street fighter and those are some awesome games too. - HeavyDonkeyKong

3Metal Gear Solid 4

This game has an exponential amount of variety. With a realistic rag doll engine, varying battle sounds (extremely varying), a stress factor that affects your actions in combat, Dualshock 3 that brings you even further into the battle, and a lot more. I do see why Grand Theft Auto would be pretty cool, but since I got MGS4, I haven't put GTA4 back in the Playstation. - props2tails

I thought it would be #1 it should be - denverdez

Grand Theft Auto 4 is so overrated, MGS 4 is the masterpiece of 2008. - Raizulee

This should be number 1 by a landslide

4Fallout 3

Brilliant. Only game that I've ever deeply felt in the place of the character while playing. It immerses you completely. 10/10 greatest game I've ever played, and I've played my fair share of video games, from NES to the Wii U, this is gaming's magnum opus.

Needs to be number 1, As it is the only video game that has ever made me cry. An underrated masterpiece.

I love both Grand Theft Auto and metal gear solid but this game must be number one

5Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe

OK, this franchise has many better games but I love its graphics and the story isn't that bad. It was interesting to see MK fighters against Batman, Superman, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Joker etc - Magnolia
