Schmoes Choice for Game of the Year 2007

Pretty obvious. State your selection and why you believe it's the best.

I'll be back later to post mine.

Call Of Duty 4, multiplayer and singleplayer are both godlike and sooooooooo addictive.

I was going to go with Bioshock this year, but then I played Rock Band... A game for all platforms that is fun as hell to play with friends offline/online, and to just practice alone. It also includes things and puts them into a game in very innovative ways which I think is another key to this selection. I vote ROCKBAND for game of the year.

I don't have time to pick and poke why the game I selected is game of the year, mostly because 2007 was an amazing year for video games. All of the systems (yes, even the PS3) had great, engaging games that I will surely be playing years from now. But to move on, I'll just list my top ten of the year.

10. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (Playstation 3)
9. Eternal Sonata (Xbox 360)
8. The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass (Nintendo DS)
7. The Orange Box (Xbox 360/PC/Playstation 3)
6. Crysis (PC)
5. Mass Effect (Xbox 360)
4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360/Playstation 3/PC)
3. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
2. Persona 3 (Playstation 2)
1. BioShock (Xbox 360/PC)

For me, nothing was more satisfying than Super Mario Galaxy.

CALL OF DUTY 4

Next would be:

Hm. Nothing else, I guess.

No, not even GUITAR HERO III which turned into go-ahead-and-try-playing-this - and even worse - I-dare-you-to-do-complete-these-Achievements overly difficult game.
ROCK BAND is a blast, but faulty equipment and songs that are too easy on guitar (along with tricky hammer-on timing that seems faulty), and a vocal system that doesn't work that well for singing in key made it NOT the game of the year for me.

I havent play either so I cant say but I find it quite interesting that numerous people here have voted for Call Of Duty 4 for game of the year and there has not been one mention of Halo 3 yet Gamespot.com rated Halo 3 a 9.5 and COD4 only a 9.0. Seems kinda fishy to me.

The Halo series has done nothing for me. I think I should drink me a Game Fuel.

It was clever. I felt the need to show support.

Anyway, Orange Box is the best deal, not quite as playable. I'd say Bioshock over Call of Duty 4 if it didn't have one of the greatest storylines ever followed by the worst twist in the history of story telling (dating back to the beginning of the spoken language).

I've played sadly few video games this year. Damn you full time job + school! *shakes fist*

Of the small handful that I have played I'd say Resistance was the best.

For me, I've gotta say God Of War 2 (PS2) is the best game over all. But, I'll give high nods to Bioshock and CoD4... I also loved MoH:Airborne, but I'm a MoH geek, so...

Does Orange Box have a lot of replay value? It seems once you've played Portal and Episode 2 that's it, and because of its structure TF2 seems like it would get old fairly quickly.

Eh?

I enjoy the Orange Box quite a bit. The newer fan made maps keep TF2 going for a while longer...

Anyway, my choices are:
Mass Effect, followed by Call of Duty 4, then followed by Orange Box.

Call of Duty 4 in a landslide. Easily the best FPS ever made... and I've only been playing it since Christmas.

Followed by Bioshock.

What's not to like about the ending in Bioshock?

Portal is a blast to play again and again for me. I've been trying to beat it faster with every play through, and it's still fun to me. Half-Life 2 and it's episodes are fun also; but I'm a person who played through the first Half-Life over ten times. And Team Fortress 2 is the next best multi-player experience next to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and it's fun as hell.

I gotta go with Guitar Hero 3 - the replay value of Guitar Hero games is amazing, you never get tired of it, well at least I don't.

It made what had been a throughly intelligent game become balls to the wall ridiculous and retarded.

Not the most obvious choice, but my game of the year is Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. This game delivered on all levels for me (as has the previous instalments of the series)

1) Crysis (PC)
2) Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare (PC) (Would have been no. 1 had it lasted a little longer)
3) Guitar Hero III - Legends of Rock (PS3)

Absolutely. I've replayed HL2 and it's eps quite a few times already and Portal just as much. TF2 isn't the best online FPS but it is probably the most original which makes it great fun. Plus Valve plans to update it often for free.

This was probably the best year for video games this decade. But I don't think game of the year is close...

Mario Galaxy is an all timer, Halo 3 was as good as expected, COD 4 managed to create a unique FPS multiplayer option to go with a great campaign mode, Rock Band is intense, Orange Box is the best value you can ever get, Eternal Sonata was highly underrated, Assassin's Creed had great design and gameplay, Mass Effect is like KOTOR on steroids (I haven't finished it yet though), Metroid Prime 3 was a great conclusion to a great trilogy, Ratchet and Clank was outstanding, but still...

Bioshock. It's not close. It blew me away from the jump, and is just unlike anything I've ever played. I think it's easily the game of the year, and so far it's the best game of this generation.

I just recently bought a ps3 and I have not played many games but for me the best game that I have played this year was Uncharted Drakes fortune, I thought it was fantastic throughout ( so much attention to detail). One game that did surprise me was Heavenly Sword... The battle at the end of the game against Bohan the Raven King felt so epic, I have never seen anything like that fight, in any game before.

I would've instinctively said "Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction" but now I'm not sure. "Call of Duty 4", "Mass Effect" and "Uncharted" are excellent competitors. "Orange Box" and "Mario Galaxy" too. I haven't played "BioShock", but I'd be surprised if it was this good.

Bioshock is a great game. The only problem I have with it is the hit detection is shit if you turn off the auto-aim.

Definitely - 300: March to Glory.



Crackdown is probably my favorite game of the year.
BioShock, Portal, Lost Planet, Mario Galaxy, The BIGS, and Pac-Man Championship make for some excellent runner-ups.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Deepest online shooter ever and most intense single player FPS I have played. Nuff said.
