Every game I played in 2008 reviewed in haiku form


Some of these games are way more than a year old, but I just got around to playing them because I signed up for GameFly in March, or they were re-released on XBLA/PSN. Hope you enjoy!

No More Heroes - 7/10
The open world sucked
The dialogue was cheesy
But the game still ruled

The Orange Box - 10/10
Four best games ever
TF2 can fuck off though
Sorry, BlindsideDork

Psychonauts - 10/10
Late to the party
But glad I finally came
Thank you, Tim Schafer

This was a surprise
A racing game that was good
No auto-retry!?

I was late once more
But this party kinda sucked
Sequel is good though

Myst DS - 2/10
I can't click on shit
Oh, here's yet another bug
Yawned myself to death

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - 7/10
Wow, a good Wii game
My arm is getting tired
Eat shit, Wii remote

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates - 3/10
Everytime you're bored
Take a shot of Maker's Mark
Your liver will die

Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice - 6/10
Great presentation
But is it even a game?
I say 'objection'

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 - 6/10
A test of patience
How many times can you die?
Lots, apparently

Bully: Scholarship Edition - 7/10
Didn't finish it
Rockstar should just make movies
That's what their games are

Frontlines: Fuel of War - 6/10
As far as story
How generic can you get?
Game play was decent

Okami - 8/10
Defines adventure
Under appreciated
Wolf-god wants some love

Horror games are not my thing
Is my TV fucked?

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - 8/10
Nate is a huge dick
But his game is amazing
Sullys my hero

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga - 5/10
My first LEGO game
It will also be my last
People play this crap?

Dark Sector - 6/10
It's Gears minus fun
Made me want to watch Krull though
So plus one for that

New Super Mario Bros. - 8/10
It's an old classic
Now with added bonuses
Nothing not to like

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure - 6/10
Oh boy here we go
I know this game is adored
But I fell asleep

A haunted mansion
That just needs to be vacuumed
It makes perfect sense

A pleasant surprise
Unique game play and story
More like this please, Square

Beyond Good and Evil - 8/10
You must have patience
Smart and brilliant narrative
Marred by poor controls

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time - 6/10
Platforming was meh
Why even have enemies?
The fighting was bad

Slow and cumbersome
Par for the course with 3D
I suck at fighters

Don't have the patience
To sit through this crap again
Tacticals are slow

Boom Blox - 7/10
Podtoid summed it up
It's action Jenga with bombs
Uses Wiimote well

Mario Kart Wii - 8/10
Looks great and plays great
Classic controller is best
But fuck those blue shells!

Can be frustrating
Intense and satisfying
Controls help immerse

I payed 25 dollars
For no case or book

Sam & Max: Season 1 - 7/10
I need to realize
Point and click is not for me
Hilarious though

A great Star Wars game
By general standards though
Felt like pulling teeth

Overrated dev
Takes overrated franchise
Results not shocking

A timeless classic
Do you see what I did there?
God damn I'm funny

The formula fits just fine
I'm just bored with it

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - 8/10
It's great mindless fun
Difficulty curve is shit
Games cute and funny

Sad when a good thought
Is poorly executed
Missed another jump

Best co-op ever
In memory: JohnTheCrow
God dammit, Francis

Gears of War 2 - 8/10
Bro, it's the sequel
Bigger, better, more bad ass
That's about it, bro

Fable 2 - 9/10
A perfect mixture
Humor and seriousness
Hammers got man-legs

Grand Theft Auto 4 - 8/10
No doubt that it's good
Game of the year it is not
REAL cars drive better

Oblivion. Guns.
Great tastes together at last
It's not a bad thing

Emotional plot
Trapped in JRPG frame
Too hard in places

Up for a match, guys?

I really don't understand
Uh, the plot I mean

Metal Gear Solid 3 - 9/10
Ruined my vision
Big Boss is tougher than that
The End is the best

Metal Gear Solid 4 - 8/10
Combat was the best
Is this scene still not over?
More movie than game

Little Big Planet - 8/10
Muslims should be mad
Not at music, but controls
Check out "What goes up..."

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift - 8/10
A good tactical
Ranks with Big Foot for rareness
Hear that Disgaea?!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl - 8/10
Mario hits Peach
We've all dreamed about that, right?
Maybe I'm just weird.

A Kingdom for Keflings - 7/10
Not much to do here
Run around, place blocks, build stuff
Why is it so fun?

Castle Crashers - 9/10
Co-op worked for me
Forever replayable
Best ending ever

Ikaruga - 10/10
I can't beat stage 4
I owe RetroForce a debt
Thanks Topher Cantler

Point and click made fun
Mike and Jerry are like Gods
Lovecraft would be proud

Braid - 10/10
Pretentious art crap
Sounds like something I would like
Rewind is so fun

You are a zombie
You can barf to clear a screen

Free for a reason
An apology worth shit
MS still owes us
