Famitsu names best PS3 games of 2008, Metal Gear Solid 4 tops list

12:40 PM on 02.10.2009 // Colette Bennett

Some of us keep up with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu around here, and if you do too, you may find their review scores to be of some interest. This list caught my eye over at Kotaku, which shows a list of their highest rated PS3 titles of 2008 (you can see the full list after the jump). Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was sitting pretty on the top of the list with a perfect score of 40, just beating out Grand Theft Auto IV with a 39 and LittleBigPlanet with a 38.

For those of you with a nose for imports, you may also be interested to see Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan! highly rated with a 37, a Sega game which involves real life legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. Political intrigue, historical drama -- sounds like just my cup of tea.

Any of these games make it to your favorites list of 2008?

Grand Theft Auto IV: 10,10,9,10 39

REMEMBER: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is on PS+ for PS3! For PS3/PS4 owners like me who have barely used their PS3's since the PS4, remember that Sony still supports it!

So uh... I didn't know Nordic was handing out free upgrades of Darksiders 2 Dethinitive Edition for us owners of the original game + all DLC on PC. I wonder if it's even worth installing compared to the original release.

Change the text to Destructoid. Make the alien Mr. Destructoid. And make the skulls either just Jonathan Holmes, or all staff. [img]http://www.destructoid.com/ul/339243-/xcom2box-noscale.jpg[/img] We can make it into an unofficial shirt if it rocks?

Can any California based Dtoiders confirm/deny how accurate American Truck Simulator is, scenery wise? Apart from the total lack of pedestrians, that is.As a Brit I remember playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and not recognising a damn thing about Manchester.

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -
