3 Metal 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

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

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

This should be number 1 by a landslide

4 Fallout 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.

Amazing, you just call in love with many characters! RIP James and line wander (if you put him into project purity reaction chamber)

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

5 Call Of Duty: World At War

This game should be on no.2 or number 1... It is the best game of 2008 in my opinion. It is great!

best shooting game, best ps3 game ever its better than call of duty 4

My favorite Call of Duty game of the 7th gen - marmalade_skies

This game should be the at least no.3

6 Mario Kart Wii
7 Mortal 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

I can finally kick batman's butt! - aeromaxx777

8 Dead Space
9 Left 4 Dead

Best multiplayer games
Now a days game depend on graphics rather than gameplay

This showed how play as a team

It's has Very Amazing Multiplayer Games
Francis is my favorite character in this game

10 Battlefield: Bad Company

So Addictive Could Have Been So Much More Famous If Cod Wasn't So Overrated. - rjhype

The Newcomers

? Street Fighter IV
? Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World

The Contenders

11 Gears of War 2
12 LittleBigPlanet

Great game but where is castle crashers

Unresistable, all of the LBP games (except LBP Karting) are the best games of actual time,... Besides the Mario games :3

13 Mirror's Edge

Possibly has to be the greatest first person free running game of all time, with great graphics, and one of the best story lines ever. Should really be in the Top 10

14 Mass Effect

Best game in first half of 2008... Prob. will stay best till the end of year... - Kalle

15 Midnight Club: Los Angeles
16 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2
17 Need for Speed: Undercover
18 Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
19 Haze
20 Lego Batman
21 God of War: Chains of Olympus

This game is awesome it should be #1 - Slasher

22 Okami
23 Mega Man 9
24 Army of Two
25 Condemned 2: Bloodshot
26 No More Heroes
27 WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009
28 Saints Row 2
29 NHL 2K9
30 Devil May Cry 4
31 Fable 2
32 Mario Super Sluggers
33 Lego Batman: The Videogame
34 FIFA 08
35 Tomb Raider: Underworld
36 Star Wars Force Unleashed
37 Rock Band 2

Yeah this game lets you go around the world with your friends and play 84 songs on disc and has over 1000 songs as dlc

The best RB of the series... shame it's this low. This game marked the peak of rhythm gaming for the Rock Band Series and the beginning of the decline of the GH series (GH:WT released that year as well)

38 Soul Calibur IV
39 History Channel Civil War: Secret Missions

More or less Call of Duty if it was set during the American Civil War. - jezza0

40 Burnout: Paradise
41 Spore

Needs to be higher. Possibly one of the greatest of 2008 despite it being the most pirated.

Should be WAAAY higher

42 Naruto Ultimate Ninja: Storm
43 Turning Point: Fall of Liberty
44 Braid
45 Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
46 Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise
47 Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed
48 Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
49 Guitar Hero World Tour
50 Ninja Gaiden II
