PC Game of the Year Awards 2008

It is time to present our choices for Best PC games of 2008.

Gameplay Awards

Best Story: Assassin's Creed
It is true, we have enjoyed the story in AC quite a bit and believe it deserves the title overall.
 
Best Graphics (Art): Prince of Persia
There should really be no arguments here. Artistically, this is the best looking game we have played this year. AC comes close, but the cell-shaded technology wins out.
 
Best Graphics (Technical): Crysis Warhead
Once again, the CryEngine2 continues to dominate in the technical graphics department.
 
Best Music/Sound Design: Red Alert 3
We don't know what it is about music in the Red Alert series, but it always gets us going with its catchy guitar riffs and heavy backup vocals as we destroy each other with our armored bears.
 
Best Atmosphere: Fallout 3
Truly a game where you feel alone, out in the wilderness. As you exhale with relief after finding someone to talk to in the Wasteland, you realize how immersed you are in the experience. Only thing missing would be a great multiplayer component.
 
Best Voice Acting: Grand Theft Auto 4
There was no competition for this title, Rockstar has picked out the best voice talents for their otherwise equally impressive characters.
 
Best Character: David McNamara from Overclocked: A History of Violence
This is one of the most memorable characters this year, for his deep emotional personality, dark past and unstable condition.
 
Best Multiplayer: Left 4 Dead
We have had tons of fun with this game over the past few weeks. While the online communication is sufficient, it is nowhere near the satisfying experience of sitting together and yelling out loud as the horde rushes you. So we personally recommend visiting an Internet cafe at least once to enjoy L4D the way it was meant to be played.
 
Best Gameplay Design: AudioSurf
Independent games are known to break gameplay barriers, and this year it was no different. The game creates a custom track for all of your songs, which you then travel on at speeds which vary depending on the song's rhythm. Well worth checking out.
 
Best New non-sequel Game: Dead Space
This title was a great effort by EA, what Iwe liked most about this was the effort they went to creating a bit deeper than usual backstory, downfall, the animated comic. The game wasn't half bad either, great horror sections, good pacing, balance of weapons and enemies and terrific audio.

For me fallout falls apart as soon as you get involved in the story, I played the game for 4 hours without fallowing the story, just exploring and experiencing the game world.  Every thing in the world feels like it has a reason and a place.  Just experiencing and exploring i felt like I was discovering the story of the world.  The story is much more limiting and not as natural as exploring the world, unlike Oblivion you can't really just meander and make your own story.
