TIME names GTA IV #1 game of 2008

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:16 PM CST | By rappo
Each year, prominent American newsmagazine TIME publishes Top 10 lists covering a variety of topics, including the top 10 video games from that year. This year, they have given Rockstar Games the honor of naming Grand Theft Auto IV the #1 video game of 2008! Brucie Kibbutz would be proud - it's lonely at the top, baby!

Here's a look at the full list that GTA IV went up against:
  1. Grand Theft Auto IV
  2. Braid
  3. LittleBigPlanet
  4. Rock Band 2
  5. Gears of War 2
  6. Dead Space
  7. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
  8. Hunted Forever
  9. Fieldrunners
  10. Spore
Congratulations to Rockstar Games and others involved with GTA IV on this big accomplishment, and although GTA IV is seeing some tough times on PC at the moment, we're hoping that this version will soon be able to live up to its full potential.

Thanks to zeeshan810 for the news

Don't forget Dead Space. Braid is actually fun too.

I feel sorry for you people who haven't heard of Braid! One of the most original Xbox Live Arcade titles to ever arrive on the console. And no it isn't going by sales, it's going by what they think deserves to be in the Top 10.

Braid was great, I would have been surprised if it wasn't on there. GTA IV deserves to be the list but I think Saints Row 2 should also be there. I haven't played Little Big Planet much but from all the hype, I can see why it is there.

The other games, I haven't played or I don't think were all that great.
