Popular newsmagazine TIME has released its list of Top 10 Video Games of 2008, placing GTA IV right at the top, above other serious competitors such as LittleBigPlanet, Gears of War 2 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Here's the full listing:

1. Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, 360, PC)
2. Braid (360)
3. LittleBigPlanet (PS3)
4. Rock Band 2 (360, PS3)
5. Gears of War 2 (360)
6. Dead Space (360, PS3, PC)
7. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Wii, 360, PS3, DS, PSP)
8. Hunted Forever (free Flash)
9. Fieldrunners (iPhone)
10. Spore (PC)


No doubt this is just the first of many GOTY 2008 awards GTA IV can expect to receive within the next couple of months or so.

If you're interested in the full breakdown for this category, click the link below for the full article.

What the fuck is Braid and what is it doing above LBP? Meh, Time doesn't know shit about video games. Though it is good to see video games getting more recognition.

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Braid is some user-made Xbox Live Arcade game. Some people thought it was the shit, but most people agreed it wasn't worth the pricetag, which kinda chucks its eligibility for GOTY out the window imo. So the short answer is: fuck knows. LBP should have taken the second spot for sure, and as bOnEs said^, Fallout 3 should be on the somewhere.

I've played that "Haunted Forever" game, and its a good flash game, but a top video game? Better than MSG4 or fallout3? No way...


I just get a feeling a lot of the Game of the Year awards published in non gaming magazines are written by causual gamers, non gamers, or are written with an agenda... (ie sponsored)

Abso-fucking-lutely. Rock Band 2, LBP and spore are casual-esque. Only LBP deserves to be there. Star Wars is there for the sake of it being star wars.

Any list without MGS4 only says they don't know shit!

Also the force unleashed was an awful game, it shouldn't even be in the top 50. X_x

None of them games compare to GTA IV. Thats why it was first. I'm not downing GTA IV one bit but seriously, put some competition on the list.

Keep Gears Of War On There
Put Resistance 2 on there
I dont care much for the game but SR2
Call Of Duty WaW
Put some good stuff up there

Makes me wonder what sources Time used to put this list together. They probably aren't very up to date when it comes to games.

The games are taken from a wide range of media formats. So there is the best iPhone game, best PC game, best DS game, best Wii game, best game on all consoles, best free flash game lol. I think that's how this is working.
