Games Convention 08 - Top 5 Games
Written Sunday, August 24, 2008 By Dan WebbView author's profile
So the madness has stopped and we are just starting to settle down after a mental week. As I write this we're sat in the hotel bar churning out thousands of words an hour and as a result, we can bring you the first of our Games Convention Top 5's and we start with our highlights. You know, the games that we were really, really impressed with.
The following 5 games are games that we saw at the show that completely knocked our socks off. Of course there are a few missing, like Fallout 3 and Fable 2 but its called a top 5 for one reason, we can only have 5 and we've seen so much of those up till now that we just want the damn final version!
There are seriously too many good games coming out in the next 12 months but we're not complaining. Check out what 5 titles completely blew us away after the jump, in no particular order.
Zombies, zombies and more zombies is the central theme of Valve’s upcoming team co-operative FPS title. Take 3 of your closest friends with you online to take down hordes and hordes of the undead. What we saw of Left 4 Dead at the Games Convention this year was enough to confirm our previous elation regarding the title. Up close, Left 4 Dead is an incredible piece of eye candy and the “director” code adds tonnes and tonnes of replayability to the title. Seriously, what more do you want than to duke it out with an army of zombies with a few mates. Pure gaming heaven.
This one actually shocked us more than any this year. For years we’ve been after a Bond title to rival the much heralded Goldeneye of years gone by. Quantum of Solace is certainly shaping up to be the best Bond title in nearly 10 years. What we have here is a genuine Bond title a.) with its voice cast, b.) with its character models and beautiful environments and c.) with its sheer bad ass attitude. Will it be enough to rival Goldeneye and bring back the glory days to a much needed franchise, only time and a good multiplayer arena will tell.
Look out for the more previews, videos, a few more Top 5's and images from the event in the coming weeks.
