1. Grand Theft Auto IV
Probably doesn't deserve it, in my opinion. Still a fantastic game nevertheless
never even heard of it...
Cartoon version of Garry's mod, deserves to be like 15.
4. Rock Band 2
5. Gears of War 2
pretty good. good #5
6. Dead Space
7. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
sucked even more than dead space
8. Hunted Forever
never even heard of it...
Doesn't deserve this good. Should be like #16.
Probably it will be a battle for GOTY between Fallout 3 and Grand Theft Auto 4.

Edit: BTW, Chris you should credit Evo for finding this considering that's where you found the info. I believe he made a topic in the Gaming section

I came into the series on GTA III, I hadnt played a game like it b4.. It was cool but I wanted more.. Then VC made it even better, one of the funniest parts of the games has ofcourse been the ped dialog..
I wasnt crazy about soma the more suggestive themes, frankly I was "turned off" by the excessive sexual themes, goodgrief, I really could care less than to see poor cartoony characters in a game go through motions and sounds of sex, never saw the "hot coffee" scene dont care to, I'm sure it was explicit but I could imagine it on the low level, "ohhh what pixels!! , its the result of clever coding baby, I do like your textures, you got some fly resolutions "girl", uh huh 1600x1280!, lets integrate, ohh ohh, 010..101..1011..001..110".. lol
Otherwise SA was coolest w/ the ability to fly planes, that jumbo jet was massive!! I REALLY miss the Apache and Fighter... The jetpack was cool too..
I liked being able to customize cars but as far as ingame it wasnt all that good, I mean they obviously werent focusing much on it, just an add-in.. You had some cars that lookt much better w/ out the mods as they were so cheesy.. Others lookt really good tho..
I dint like how at times when you take over territory, you could load up the game and find your stats showing you had none.. Other times I'd played & took over some territory, it'd be there next load, but upon taking over all of it, it later said I had none & ballas were out everywhere ..
GTA IV, nice to see better graphics and better cars, the HUMMER is my fav for car smashin & flippin as well as cop evasion! It kinda sux you goin through the windshield at most inopertune times, say when ya have 7 cop cars on your tail =oP Otherwise it is a cool feature, ESPECIALLY since other ppl, including cops fly through the windshield.. Unfortunately it doesnt have much get up & go, the "plane tower" at the airport is pretty good for head-ons & puttin ppl through the windshield, best in FP camera..
The missions are pretty good, but I really would like a lil more freedom in missions to be abit stealthier!! Like when I have to take out the baddies, I get my sniper out from x distance, only to zoom & see that they can already see me w/ their weapons pointed str8 at me .. Comon, ts part of the element of surprise man .. It sux when you try to get the baddies in that "open" multilevel building, they can see & shoot you from across the street..
I think lowering their field of vision would help, stealth & skill is part of what keeps you alive say in real-life or in the gaming world, so let us have more element of surprise.. I hate those missions where you have to follow or drive on a certain path only or you fail.. Granted there is some freedom in some missions but others demand a-b-c ...
The GPS was a nice addition since maps are so big & until you really learn them its hard to find places from here to "50 miles away"..
I dint like the few & somewhat sporadic safehouses. What happened to the purchase of properties ?? You get all that $$ in the game & nothin to spend it on cept the hospitals, that sux, proly tryin to keep it closer to real life, lol ..
The street parking was not bad, pretty convenient but cops atleast, would occassionaly steal my vehicles, I know, I seen em do it or I'd load up & the car was gone so I figured they took it or it was a glitch one.. We know cops often steal moving or parked cars to give chase or transport criminal.. I liked the fact the cops also go after other ppl & if you provoke them into hittin you w/out the cops seein you hit them, they arrest of shoot them, thats fairer ! I've also been able to help cops indirectly by running after a guy they're chasing, run into him, he falls, the cop paid me a compliment on more than one occassion, I even got in a fight w/ a prisoner in the yard, he hit me, a cop showed up to "arrest" him, heh, an extra cool-bit.
I'm not so much into "stunt" performances, but its good to have ramps & whatnot throughout for escape routes & resulting "stunts" can be pretty cool..
Obviously bail out has been improved, I don know how many times I've driven along, bailed & watcht the vehicle run into ppl & stuff, the cops wont come after you IF you arent in the vehicle upon impact, normally .. I'd like a lil less reactiveness from ppl gettin outta the way..
When you're on foot w/ grenades, the RPG or few other weapons, its cool to hear ppl acknowledge it & run like hell! lol
I'd like to see more weapons/customize option ..
The phone, its aight, good to have the option to cancel calls AND put it in sleep mode, dang, I was gettin tired of ppl callin to have a drink, play darts, pool, bowling or TITTIES ROMAN, lol .. Integration of codes was better than manual button mashes everytime but they dint make it that easy, closing the phone when you get shot, hahaha very funny .. Those dogon cops have TOO good an aim too, they are too many that pop up outta nowhere & it seems that honestly a certain bit of "HA you're OWNED" is programmed into the game.. For one, I noticed in Ps3, you can't get ridda the cops w/ one push of the code, it can take 50 or more pushes, its like for some reason maybe you blew up a cop car or 2, whatever, sometimes it goes off, otherwise wanted reappears, again,again,again,again and on and on.... I've also been blown up by the RPG firing on its own ??!!
Some cops got me when I was low on health so I took out some cops afterwards, there were some cars around, I RPG'd the cop cars, noticed a couple cars on fire, I was near a building abit, soon as those cars blew up & another cop showed up, I blew him up, then another was coming, I started to aim but b4 he got the RPG up, it fired on its own!! into the ground/building wasting Niko... Its like it got pisst cuz I was takin out the cops, so it took me out, thats happened on more than one occassion, it fired one or 2 times more after I was already in the "grey" "wasted" ... Almost like its programmed that way, where, hmm you been mean taking out these ppl or cops, so .. lol
Overall, its obvious I like this game the BEST! Despite the "pc issues", RS has proven they've only made the game better w/ just a few things we miss or would like in the (current) or next game, hint hint =oP

LBP looks awesome. Don't know if it deserves #3, but at least top 10.
Hunted Forever and Fieldrunners... again. What?
Where's COD5? That game was awesome, and Crysis Warhead was great too. Much, much better than Spore >.> And Far Cry 2, apart from the shitty AI, is a very amusing game too.
Super Smash Bros Brawl... Totally forgot about that one.
Anyway, seems the performance problem has been somewhat softened, can't wait to get going with GTA. Fuck. It's probably going to be the only thing I'll be doing on the first of Jan (if it is really much beter than San An that is (which I loved btw)).
