PC Game of the Year Awards 2008

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

Posted by on

Genre Awards

Best Driving Game: GRID
No other game out there really challenged GRID this year for the best driving game. Great physics and driving, fun to play, lengthy campaign mode, and solid multiplayer make this the best racing game of the year.
 
Best Platformer: Prince of Persia
Once again the game had little competition in this category, and takes the win deservingly.
 
Best Shooter: Crysis Warhead
While Warhead remains a very good-looking game, it also manages to pull off exciting open-world gameplay combined with a strong story and interesting characters.
 
Best Action Game: Grand Theft Auto 4
With GTA4, the Rockstar series continues to dominate the Open-world action-based genre with its high production values, good story, great amounts of multiplayer fun and a breathtaking city to explore.
 
Best Strategy Game: Sins of a Solar Empire
This massive strategy game lets you easily command humongous fleets spread out across multiple star systems in real-time. It's brilliant, addictive, and a great strategy game in every way.
 
Best Adventure Game: Overclocked: A History of Violence
This game had a great story, it is very atmospheric and the puzzles are challenging as they are rewarding. The gameplay is also unique and memorable, and the climax of the story is a shocking series of events that need to be experienced.
 
Best Role Playing Game: Fallout 3
This was a great achievement in the RPG genre. As a standalone, it did a great job of pushing the genre further into unexplored and innovative territory, while remaining true to its roots as best it can. Not all fans were happy, but this is still the best RPG this year.
 
Best Sports Game: NBA 2k9
If you are sports gamer, you should have no doubt about this year's winner. For years, EA Sports franchises have been feeding us crap PS2 ports of their sports games while consoles got the good stuff. Well this is a huge step for the PC platform, as 2k Sports is attempting to enter the market, and what a great start they made. Here at NGN we do not have many basketball fans, but as sports fans we was absolutely amazed at the level of gameplay and graphic detail that can be found here. Watch out EA, your monopoly may be coming to an end if 2k continues this trend and brings its other sports titles to PC next year.
 
Best Simulation: FIFA Manager 09
Football Manager series fans may be upset, but FIFAM has been the soccer management sim genre since the 2007 edition. Good learning curve, interesting gameplay and of course, top-notch 3D match simulation really put this series above anything else that the competitiors offer.
 
 
Contiue to Game of the Year...

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.
