3 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

4 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

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 Dead Space
8 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

9 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

10 Gears of War 2

The Contenders

11 Battlefield: Bad Company

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

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 Mass Effect

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

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

This game is awesome it should be #1 - Slasher

19 Okami
20 Far Cry 2
21 Army of Two
22 No More Heroes
23 WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009
24 Star Wars Force Unleashed
25 Saints Row 2
26 NHL 2K9
27 Devil May Cry 4
28 Fable 2
29 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

30 Mario Super Sluggers
31 Lego Batman: The Videogame
32 FIFA 08
33 Lego Batman
34 Tomb Raider: Underworld
35 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)

36 Soul Calibur IV
37 Burnout: Paradise
38 Spore

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

Should be WAAAY higher

39 Naruto Ultimate Ninja: Storm
40 Braid
41 Mega Man 9
42 Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
43 Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise
44 Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed
45 Guitar Hero World Tour
46 Ninja Gaiden II
47 Spider-Man: Web of Shadows
48 Condemned 2: Bloodshot
49 Resistance 2
50 Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit
