    Top 10 Games to Look Forward to in 2008

    10.) Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures**

    36599_071123_2_01.jpg
    Developer: Funcom
    Publisher: Funcom*, Eidos Interactive *
    Platforms: Xbox 360, PC*
    Website: http://www.ageofconan.com/

    Why is it on our list? *
    Age of Conan is a MMORPG that’s approaching the genre with a very mature style. Expect massive PvP and siege battles.Players can construct strongholds, and wage war on each other. The developers aren’t doing a turn-based combat system (something WoWers are used to), they’re doing real time fighting which puts your reflexes to the test. Finally, something you can get good at.Age of Conan will feature mounted combat. Staying true to Conan lore, there will be plenty of gore and nudity. Ok, sign me up.
    9.) Borderlands

    Developer: Gearbox Software
    Publisher: 2K Games
    Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC
    Website: http://www.borderlandsthegame.com/home.htm

    Why is it on our list?
    Borderlands is inspired by the Mad Max films and Blizzard’s Diablo series. The game features four-player coop along with single and multiplayer modes, and customisable characters and vehicles for vehicular combat. The game’s engine will randomise something like 500,000 different guns as well as different item and armor variations, and maps. Shit, I can’t even count that high. The developer has stated that after the initial load, players will not see a loading screen.
    8.) Prototype

    Developer: Radical Entertainment
    Publisher: Sierra
    Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC
    Website: http://www.prototypegame.com/

    Why is it on our list?
    Prototype boast the most powerful and dynamic character ever created. Instilled in him are over-the-top parkour movements and shape shifting abilities. Transform into any character in the game, and assume their powers, skills and abilities. The action takes place in a fully open New York City. The game-play looks intense, and the story looks pretty ****ing interesting. Definitely want to see what’s going on here.
    7.) Battlefield: Bad Company

    Developer: Radical Entertainment
    Publisher: Digital Illusions CE
    Platforms: PS3, Xbox 360, PC
    Website: http://www.ea.com/battlefield/badcompany/

    Why is it on our list?
    Destructable levels! Anything and everything is destructable on this game. I know I have been asking for something like this to come along for years. In Radical's latest developers' dairy you can see some of the carnage you can create, and it's amazing - plus most of the video is from the 360. The particle system they are implementing looks very life-like. The past online experiences with this franchise have been very fun, and I don't see this one being any different.
    6.) *Left 4 Dead

    left4dead.jpg

    Developer: Turtle Rock Studios, Valve Corporation
    Publisher: Valve Corporation (Steam), EA Games
    Platforms: Xbox 360, PC
    Website: http://www.l4d.com

    Why is it on our list?
    Fight Together... or Die Alone. That’s Left 4 Dead’s motto. It’s you and four of your friends as you fight of a legion of infected (think zombies). You and comrades must get to the extraction area and await pickup while trying to stay alive. You’ve got limited ammo, and limited health packs. If one of you die, you all will probably die (the fire-power is that important). To make things crazier, four others can join in and try to **** things up for you by causing chaos and letting you get over-run by their infected buddies. For those of us who love shooting things, or simply playing Zombie matches in Halo2/3, this is like the dream-game come true.
    5.) *Little Big Planet

    LBP.jpg

    Developer: Media Molecule
    Publisher: Sony
    Platforms: PS3
    Website: http://www.mediamolecule.com/games.html

    Why is it on our list?
    The innovative and physics based concept is why. Little Big Planet is a puzzle game but to a level never before explored. Their simple, easy to use version of a 'level editor' really makes this game stand out. The player will use their creativity to solve puzzles or create levels. The possibilities with his game are huge and I can't wait to see what comes out of it.
    4.) Grand Turismo 5 Prologue
    gt5.jpg

    Developer: Polyphony Digital, Inc.
    Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc.
    Platforms: Playstation 3
    Website: http://www.granturismoworld.com/
    Why is it on our list?

    I think we all know why this is a game to get. First of all the past Turismos have never let down. Second, it looks unbelievable. I don't think I've ever watched a trailer in so much awe as I did the first GT5 trailer. There are a couple of shots that are flawless and could be mistaken for real life. The new in-cockpit view with customisable is just a taste of the endless amount of new features that will suck away all of my time. This will definitely be a reason to buy a PS3.
    3.) Super Smash Brothers Brawl

    supersmash.jpg

    Developer: Nintendo
    Publisher: Nintendo
    Platforms: Wii
    Website: http://www.smashbros.com/en_us/index.html

    Why is it on our list?
    Super Smash Brothers is the only reason any Wii game will ever got one of our lists. This will be the third instalment in the series but will be the first to bring in third party characters to the fight. Most exciting is it's onlinemulti-player capabilities. The creative way that the developers have decided to deal with loss of connection or quiting is enough to get me juicy. All in all an exciting title for an otherwise boring console.
    2.) StarCraft II

    starcraft2.jpg

    Developer: Blizzard Entertainment
    Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment, Vivendi
    Platforms: Mac, PC
    Website: http://www.starcraft2.com/

    Why is it on our list?
    Honestly, I don’t know why this is on the list. It was announced in late 2007 that StarCraft II was in development. Hell, one month earlier, Blizzard said, “we’re not making StarCraft II, stop asking us.” Now, they’ve come out saying, “ok, yes we’re working on StarCraft II, and we’re almost done.” What does that mean to us? It means this game possibly won’t be out until 2009. If it doesn’t debut in quarter 3 in 2008, it won’t be here at all this year. StarCraft II is probably the most widely awaited game in the world. I know Koreans are waiting to see something else on their TVs other than StarCraft: Broodwar. That game probably looks like shit on all their Samsung and LG HDTVs. Not to mention the original game had some an incredible following. I still know a group-full of people who have been playing that game since it’s release 11 or 12 years ago. I know; I’ve lost track. I stopped playing (regularly) when WarCraft III came.
    1.) Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
    MGS4.jpg

    Developer: Kojima Productions
    Publisher: Konami
    Platforms: Playstation 3
    Website: http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/mgs4/

    Why is it on our list?
    Another reason to fork over my last $500. Kojima says to buy and I will buy. The latest on MGS4 is that it will definitely be coming out in Q2. The game is playable from start to finish, and they are beginning testing. The new "Octocamo" system for snake, which allows him to blend into any surface within five seconds will add a new dynamic to the campaign and the new online multiplayer mode. Not to mention the new "Beauty and The Beast Unit" character design is unrivaled. MGS4 will be one of those games that I will never put down.

    SC is probably the most popular RTS game ever. The game was released 10 years ago and is still running strong with lots of tournaments that have prizes up to $30,000 and has been at WCG for many years and still will this year. People make an actual living off SC in Korea.

    Lots of great games, they'res some better ones though. They didnt even mention GTA4. Its kinda sad there's only one Wii game, but that one Wii game has a good chance of being GOTY.

    To post a picture, you've got to wrap it in [img] tags, which you can either type, or you can highlight the text and click the icon of a mountain. It would also be helpful if you bolded the games' names.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    You may want to bold some of this list. (Titles, etc.) Make it a little easier to read.

    Oh, and I heavily disagree with this list.

    (And Spore has been "Semi-Kinda-Sorta-Tentatively announced for Q3 2008)


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.
