    Just because you are in love with that generic trash doesn't mean your opinion is any less shared by the minority.

    IMO GTA 4 coulda been soooooo much better and I don't think my opinion is far from the general consensus. But all around it probably was the best game of the year.

    The game I had the most fun with this year though was actually Left 4 Dead. I play the shit for hours on end and never get sick of it despite it only having 4 campaigns...even tho I can't beat any of em on expert.

    Prince of Persia was dope
    Gears 2
    Fable 2
    The Force Unleashed is pretty dope
    COD was a let down to me but the multi is dope of course
    Midnight Club was sick

    GTA 4 was trash...I got bored with it within the first 30 minutes. GTA 4 felt more like an expansion pack of GTA Vice City. You do the same stuff over and over. Rob people, kill somebody more important than yourself, move up on the "wanted" list, rob a bank..blah..i I'm sorry...but that stuff gets old after a while. They lazily rehash the same material knowing that diehards will continue to waste their money on their games. In this respect, Rockstar is no different than EA with the Madden series. Same crap, different title.

    MGS4 was garbage to me, I didn't like that game on so many levels. It was too short, most of the boss fights were uninspired...the final boss fight was anticlimatic and it sucked. The story wasn't anything groundbreaking...I just didn't like it.

    If I had to pick a game of the year..it would probably have to be Fallout 3. This was a bad year for gaming to be honest. Even Resistance II was disappointing.

    well at least the madden cocksuckers didn't pick madden 09 as the game of the year. i like my first person shooters and i don't like gears of war...so my pick goes to cod:w@w and fallout 3 being a close 2nd (even though it's not quite an fps). gta4 can be real choppy at a times, the online was horrible, and wayyyyyyyyyy too much driving. i'd give that game like a 6 out of 10.

    Wow, I thought the boss battles in MGS 4 were brilliant.
    Fall Out 3 won on quite a few sites/publications even being glitchy...
    Little Big Planet won a few. GTA won a bunch.

    Overall I think Fall Out might have won the most game of the years.
