Here's a link I thought some of you might find interesting http://www.gamespot.com/pages/featur...2005/index.php?

Gamespot have compiled a list of the best and worst games of 2005 - including genre awards. They claim that while there's been a decline in adventure games for the PC, there's been a rise in these games for the hand held and console game systems. One of the winners, Indigo Prophecy, looks interesting to me. Of course, Myst V: End Of Ages was mentioned as well. The overall game of the year won't be announced until Saturday.

Seems every site ever made that has heard of these here video games is compiling these things. Although the fact that they have perfect dark in the best shooter finalist category is disturbing.

LOL

Sean will love this. Far Cry Instincts is a Finalist for best Shooter.

And I've been dying to play FEAR since it came out, looks very good.

You know, I haven't really bought that many games this year. In fact, I don't think I played any.

Oh wait, I picked up some console game called Suikoden IV or something. It was pretty awful, reminds me while I like computer games more than I like console ones. I'm not even really sure what came out this year.

RE4 deserves the praise it recieved though. Immersion as I haven't experienced since Half Life. One of the few games where you actually do feel a constant ebb of fear.

That looks an interesting list, Moogle. Have you actually played all those games?
I agree with Indigo Prophecy for best adventure...though haven't played it. Just read a review and have a good feeling about it. :angel:

If I could make a suggestion Moogle, move RE4 to straight best GC
and put God of War or Shadow of the Colossus for best ps2 (My bias is towards Colossus though... one of the best I've ever played)

I can't really speak for flops, as I never, ever touch a game that sets my gamers intuition a jumping.

My best for the year:

Resident Evil 4
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
Animal Crossing: Wild World
Shadow of the Colossus (ties with Resident Evil 4 for first place in my book, even though I played RE4 much, much, much more, Colossus is just, well, it's art is what it is)
Killer 7
God of War
Indigo Prophecy
Psychonauts
Myst V
FEAR
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Meteos
Mario Kart DS
Wario Ware: Touched
Gunstar Super Heroes
Zelda: Minish Cap

(Why oh why Nintendo did you delay Twilight Princess? Haven't we Gamecubers suffered enough? You force my hand towards my dreamcast at times, Nintendo...)
