The Orange Box – Easily the best value in the history of video games. TOB includes 5 seperate gaming chapters, each of them worthy of GotY consideration in their own right. Half Life 2, HL Episodes 1 & 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2 make up this increadible package. I myself am still working my way through this disk, looking for continued fun in 2008!
Call of Duty 4 – Infinity Ward built upon the success of CoD2 and crafted one of the finest shooters of our time. CoD4 delivers a tremendous single player action game with a super-addictive multiplayer component. It is difficult to stop once you start, the RPG like leveling up of your characters keeps you wanting to always play ‘just one more round’.
Assassin’s Creed – Probably my most pleasent surprise of 2007. AC grippd me with its tight control, exploration, and killer story. A lot of people are divided on this game but I am firmly in the camp that this is a great title and is ever so close to what would be my overall game of the year. Also, this game would be the one I am most looking forward to a sequal.
Mass Effect – The last great game of 2007, Mass Effect would be our RPG of the year, and also another strong favorite for GotY. I am just getting startes with this game, but I already can see how great its depth will be. Give me time, and Mass Effect will be mine!
Well as you could see 2007 was one hell of a year. What will 2008 bring? Upcoming I will have a quick look at what I think will be some of my most anticipated 2008 titles!
