Welcome to part two
of the Amazees!
Yesterday I gave away the awards for my favorite movies of the year
, and now it is time to tackle the category most of you know a lot better: videogames
There is no time for pointless jibber jabber. Let�s get to the awards, shall we?
After much thought and many internal debates, I finally decided that my favorite videogame of 2008 is LittleBigPlanet
. While Metal Gear Solid 4
surpassed my wildest dreams of how cinematic a videogame can be, World of Goo
impressed me with its uniqueness, and Lost Odyssey
made me bawl like a little girl on several occasions, LittleBigPlanet
, literally, revolutionized this industry I hold so dear to my heart.
Even without the level creator, LittleBigPlanet
would be one of the best designed platform games of all time. But, wait, that�s not even a fair statement: the level creator is what LittleBigPlanet
is all about! Once you dive into this user-created feature, man, the game becomes one of the most incredible videogame experiences of all time. All of the dreams we as gamers had growing up about designing our own game could finally come true care of the very capable, intuitive hands of LittleBigPlanet
What a year for the (supposedly) struggling PlayStation 3! LittleBigPlanet
is an absolute masterpiece and the best videogame of 2008.
Honorable Mention: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PlayStation 3)
Congratulations to LittleBigPlanet
on the big win and to Lost Odyssey
for winning the most Amazees this year with a count of five
Until next year, everyone! :)
