While looking through my card I noticed a ton of games that are almost completed. I just need a few achievements . I like moving on to new games, but I do get in the mood to go back and complete my half baked games.

Those 32 achievement would give me another 32 completed games. I didn’t include some games that added content where I only need 1 achievement for the original 1,000 or 200. On top of that, I have even more games where I just need 2 or 3 achievements. Easily 50 games or better.

Worst of 08

The very worst games of 2008

10. Conflict: Denied Ops

There are lots of things that make this one bad. What gets me is playing co-op on easy difficulty is harder than playing it on extreme difficulty by yourself.

9. Disney Sing it

Maybe it isn’t such a bad game, but I’m not ten years old. I played this one strictly for the achievements. Good thing it is a quick game.

8. Turning Point

The multiplayer is laggy with two people playing, need I say more? Single player is crap also, the design choices are terrible. If you need help with this game contact Omega Deez, he is the Turning Point Pimp.

7. Smash Court Tennis 3

I love me some tennis games. I like every tennis game that has been released on the 360, even Sega superstars. This one, not so much. It’s just a terrible looking and controlling game.

6. Alaskan Storm

This game is the most boring on the list. Imagine driving a crab fishing boat as your real life job, now imagine doing the same thing with your xbox 360 controller. Yeah, not so fun.

5. Hell Boy TSoE

Not much to say besides it’s really glitchy with horrible combat. Just grapple would you!

4. NFL Tour

A downgrade from NFL Blitz. It’s just way too simple and the funny thing is, this would’ve been a good arcade game. People really would’ve said that, higher your standards for arcade games in 2009.

3. Rapala Fishing Frenzy

I can go fishing anytime, I can’t kill an army of Locust. DO THE REAL THING.

2. Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom

One of the worst co-op games known to man. This game might have thousands of weapons, but who cares if using them isn’t fun? Why does the last level have to look like baby back ribs? Good thing the development team wasn’t eating Escargot while creating this game, it would’ve been a huge slide to the last boss which is a giant meat ball. I can’t make this stuff up.

1. Jumper

I expected this much from a fruity Anakin Skywalker. Samuel L. Jackson, you’re better than that man. Now that I think about it, you should’ve just stayed in that sharks belly to save the world for your blond hair. You can run through this game in a couple of hours, but you will not enjoy yourself, guaranteed. That should be quoted on the box.

Worst Arcade Game:
SpongBob UnderPants

Biggest Disappointments:
Mercenaries 2
Brothers in Arms: HH
NBA Ballers
ET: Quake Wars
Rez HD

Notables for worst game:
Alone in the Dark, Summer Athletics, Idol Master, Karaoke Revolution, NFL Head Coach 09, Face breaker, Dark Messiah, Iron man, Fifa Street 3, Americas Army: True Soldiers, Kengo: Legend of the 9, Monster Jam.

Best of 08

The very best games I’ve had the pleasure of playing in 2008.

10. Lost Odyssey

Granted I’ve only completed the first disc. This game is HUGE, 4 discs and 60+ hours of gameplay. The story is great and the overall quality is amazing. It really is 4 games in 1.

9. Left 4 Dead

4 player co-op any way you want it with hordes of zombies. Even though it is very short, the layout of the enemies is randomized each time. Great for pick up and play moments.

8. Rock Band 2

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. 82 songs on the disc and boatloads of songs to purchase from the store. It has online tour this time too.

7. Burnout Paradise

Smashing and crashing around an open world. It’s no Test Drive Unlimited experience, but it is very satisfying. Very very addicting when trying to complete the game 100%. The co-op goals were weak.

6. Fable II

Maybe I enjoyed farting in a little boys face because I never played Fable 1. Just playing around in the fable world is were the game shines. The graphics, sound, and presentation is really great.

5. Grand Theft Auto 4

I enjoyed the story and how it unfolded. The Brucie missions were the best and that was early on, which kinda killed the flow. I loved the new graphics and driving mechanics, but the world as a whole seemed empty. Needed co-op play and better multiplayer.

4. Saints Row 2

More Grand Theft Auto than Grand Theft Auto. The fun factor is off the charts. The story ain’t too bad either, considering I thought it would be cheesy. Co-op play is a blast and done right. Multiplayer is slightly better than GTA 4, not nearly as laggy either. The taunts are awesome, buy this game just for the taunts.

3. Battlefield: Bad Company

Single player is not the main attraction. It’s the amazing MP experience. The levels are unbelievable, just massive. Killing someone on the other side of a wall by blowing that wall up is nuts. Just adding destructibility to a shooter is a big deal for me. I love this game.

2. Gears of War 2

Co-op campaign is just amazing, I enjoyed every second of it. The amount of stuff going on is unrivaled. Horde mode will be copied by everyone. The multiplayer is all around better, just some glitches holding it back. BETA EPIC!!!!!!!

1. Fallout 3

It’s not even close. This game wins hands down. It is better than oblivion. It crushes everything single player wise on the 360. Yes, even Bioshock. I always think of ways that a game could be better. I don’t think that way with this one. Maybe it could use co-op, but then again, it is meant to be your world.

Best Arcade game: Castle Crashers

4 player co-op. The art style is fabulous. Good humor and good length. Totally worth the 1,200 Microsoft points.

Best Multiplayer Game: Battlefield: Bad Company

This one was a surprise to me. I thought BF:MC multiplayer was crap. I hated the controls and how it felt aiming. This game has dedicated servers and huge maps. It’s more times than not, lag free. Making your own doors is really satisfying, you have to know your surroundings to survive.

Notables: Too Human, NBA2k9, Tiger Woods 09, and Soul Calibur IV.

Some games I missed out on that may have made this list: Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space, Prince of Persia, Ninja Gaiden 2, Devil May Cry 4, Call of Duty: World at War
