Best Video Games of 2008

The Top Ten
1 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

Has one of the best stories of all time. Set the graphical benchmark. Plus its NYC atmosphere is really faithful.

This game changed lives. It's considered one of the greatest video games of all time, not the best GTA though.

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

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

2 Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. Brawl Product Image

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.

While not being as good as Melee, I wiil admit, I actually miss playing this game.

Plus, it was the first Super Smash Bros game I played.

Had lots of content. I loved this game.

Brawl all the way

3 Metal Gear Solid 4 Metal Gear Solid 4 Product Image

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.

4 Fallout 3 Fallout 3 Product Image

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.

My second favorite game of all time (after skyrim of course)!
Too bad new vegas was such a mess. great open world, nice scenario and an awesome variety of weapons and ennemies. I call that a masterpiece also because of the post-apocalyptic environment which completely immersed me.

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

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

5 Call Of Duty: World At War Call Of Duty: World At War Product Image

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

This game should be the at least no.3

6 Mario Kart Wii Mario Kart Wii Product Image
7 Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead Product Image

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

8 Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Product Image

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

I can finally kick batman's butt!

This should be in the top 20 at least. It's my favorite Mega Man game. Great visuals, fun bosses, and holy crap, it gets hard. The only reason it's my #18 favorite game of the year is because 2008 was one of the best years for gaming.
