2008: Also a pretty decent year for videogames

A year ago I wrote a post about the many incredible and amazing games that were released in 1998. Yes, I was 14 and everything was best when you were in your teens. But I think even then the list speaks for itself. Over the last months I’ve been completing my collection of PS3 games that I played but never owned myself or that I always wanted to give a try one day. And today I noticed that quite a surprising number of them were all made in 2008. It’s also quite the impressive list, I would say.

  • Februrary 12: Penumbra: Black Plague
  • April 24: Valkyria Chronicles
  • June 12: Metal Gear Solid 4
  • June 23: Battlefield: Bad Company
  • July 24: Siren: Blood Curse
  • August 22: Stalker: Clear Sky
  • September 25: Wipeout HD
  • October 13: Dead Space
  • October 21: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
  • October 21: Far Cry 2
  • October 27: LittleBigPlanet
  • October 28: Fallout 3
  • November 7: Gears of War 2
  • November 11: Call of Duty: World at War
  • November 11: Mirror’s Edge
  • November 18: Left 4 Dead

There were also Prince of Persia 2008 and The Force Unleashed, which are not highly regarded but I still think are a lot of fun, and Overlord got released on PS3. Probably won’t be long until we see the first games for 2018 being announced. Maybe we’ll get lucky and the trend continues.
