So what game was your favorite new game of 2008???
For me it was Fallout 3, Its huge, no right way to go through the game, choices (real choices not like Fable 2), good story, solid soundtrack, good voice acting, and great game play.
As for GTA 4, it was a good game, a lot of work went into it but....its just not that different, I've stolen cars before, I've shot cops (in VG's), and if I want to race I'll play mario kart. It just should have not got game of the year from spike. Though I understand a lot of work went into the game...that does not make it the best game of the year.
What about you?
