Games we're thankful for...

November 26, 2008

Some of the members of the crew were asked which games they were thankful for this year, here are their unedited responses...

"This year has been filled with many games that still linger on my Hard Drive. I was thankful to have my counter-strike itch scratched by a free, yet addicting alternative of Combat Arms. Real-Time Strategy title Red Alert 3 swooped in and took over some hunger pains for some old school cut-scenes with bad acting and fast and furious bear-on-bear action. Left4Dead arrives and finally shows us what a co-op game SHOULD play like, irritating our cubicle members with violent zombie belching noises. And last, but not least Tiny Dungeons & Dragons has worked its way into my heart - but that's probably because I'm back running my own pen and paper D&D 4E campaign. Thanks Raithe, Zopher, DP and Theren for all the memories!" - Ferret


Combat Arms - A Free-to-Play Shooter!

"Without an uber computer I didn't get to play many new AAA games this year and tortured from hearing countless juicy gaming reviews from the Spaniard. I enjoyed playing Portal: Prelude which was an exclusive Fileplanet mod release. My FPS addictions were fulfilled by Call of Duty 4 and hopefully Call of Duty: World at War will be a holiday gift after trying the Beta. Flash games like Desktop Tower Defense 1.5, 99 Bricks, and Gemcraft made me realize I didn't need an awesome computer to play fun games." - Ricecrispi

 
Portal: Prelude - A Portal Add-on Pack!

"This year was an amazing one for games and gamers alike. So many games on so many systems, our wallets wept and begged for mercy. I've played many great games this year and am currently elbow deep in about 4 or 5 recent releases right now with more lining up behind them, but there is one I am particularly thankful for, and that is Dead Space. Dead Space was a bit of a gamble for EA and I for one am happy they took it. It's one of the best games I've played this year, with fantastic gameplay and unflinching portrayal of various horrifically violent acts it makes a goreaholic such as myself grin and drool happily like a brain dead buffoon. I hope that this will end up being known as the blockbuster start to what will become a stellar series and cannot wait to see what comes next. Altman be praised!" - The_Spaniard


Dead Space - Watch the Animated Comic!

"It's getting to be that time again. Time to give thanks and spread peace, joy, and goodwill towards all men. What better way to spend this season than blasting away at monsters and zombies hell bent on extinguishing humanity? This season has brought on an endless wave of AAA titles, and I am thankful for them all. Left4Dead has been taking up most of my time lately, which has been a similar theme around the office. I am also very thankful for Dead Space and its engrossing story and killer interface. Following the shoot-'em-up or die theme, Gears of War 2 has sucked up my time on any console and I love every minute of it. If this isn't enough to be thankful for, I can always bust some heads while wandering the wasteland. I guess when it comes down to it, I am mainly thankful that shooters are still alive and kicking. How else am I supposed to blow off steam around this time of year?" - the_prophet

 
Gears of War 2 - Launch Trailer!

"So many great games have come out this year that I first want to give thanks for allowing them to drain my pocket book rendering me without money to buy gas (even at their low prices!). First and foremost I give special thanks to Dungeons & Dragons. I started playing a pen and paper 4th Edition campaign with some fellow co-workers. When we weren't playing, I needed my fix which resulted in my purchase of D&D Tactics for the PSP. Wizard extraordinaire... lightning bolt! Lightning bolt! Mass Effect turned out to be one of the most satisfying purchases of an RPG game for me. I had my hairs raised on the back of my neck with Dead Space with its super creepy "The THING" like mutations and Left4Dead's frantic co-op game play. Last, but not least, I'm thankful for World of Warcraft. The launch of Wrath of the Lich King has pulled me back, sword swinging towards level 80. I'm coming for YOU, Lich King!" - ToughCookie
