Time rates GTA IV 2008's finest
Time magazine this evening reveal their top ten games of 2008, Grand Theft Auto IV an uncontroversial choice as the year's finest gaming release.
More interesting is Jonathan Blow's much admired XBLA platformer Braid at number two, while LittleBigPlanet is perhaps a more conventional choice at number three.
Rock Band 2 is fourth, followed by Gears of War 2, Dead Space riding rather high at six, followed by Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (really?) at seven.
Hunted Forever is eighth, followed by FieldRunners at nine; Spore bringing up the rear in tenth.
So, no place for BioShock PS3, Resistance 2, Fable 2, FIFA 09, Far Cry 2, World of Goo, or a number of other very highly rated titles. Your thoughts, players?
