Tell us your most anticipated games of 2008


Alright, New Year's Day hangovers are (mostly) taken care of now, so it's time for 2008 to officially begin. We've already dispensed with our best games of 2007. Now it's time to look forward. We are speaking, of course, of the most anticipated games of 2008. It's hard to imagine that 2007 could be trumped, but we're more than willing to be proven wrong. This year promises some serious gaming goodness from the likes of Ninja Gaiden II, Halo Wars, Condemned 2, the next Banjo-Kazooie, Alan Wake, Grand Theft Auto IV, Silent Hill V, and a host of others. And let's not forget the unofficial releases like the next installment of Gears of War.

The truth is, there are so many games headed our way, we're bound to forget some. We're going to need some help keeping up with them all. So, our question to you: what games are you looking forward to the most in 2008? Let your opinions be known in the comments below. And don't forget, if you find some tasty info about a game your looking forward to, send it to our tips line. Happy 2008 everyone, let's make it a good year.

Alan Wake and Warhound are sure to be soem of the most gorgeous games of the year on any platform. I look forward to both.

NG2 is a must buy for me...aside form that...I'm open.

Frankly I just wannaKillzone come out...so it can flop like the firsat one did and we can stop hearing about it.

I am a big RPG nut, so for me my most anticipated might not even come out here in 08.
Last Reminent by Square Enix is number one with Fable 2, Too Human, and Blue Dragon 2 are fighting for second place, leaving Lost Odyssey in 5th.
But aside the RPG's, I am really looking forward to
Saints Row 2 (almost more than GTA 4 after its delay).
I really enjoyed the first game and am excited to see what they do to improve it.
I guess I just love the underdog.

It's about time someone aside from myself remembers Alan Wake. Microsoft plunked down the money to make it a 360/PC exclusive.
