6 Ground-Breaking Blockbusters Video Games Released In The Year 2008

Check out the best games released in the year 2007. In this series, I compile some of the greatest games released in last 17 years. We have started from 2000 and will end the series in the year 2017. Counting down the best of the best video games released last 17 years.

So without any further ado let’s head right into best video game released in 2008. A new article will be posted soon covering the best games released in 2009. 

Grand Theft Auto 4


We can talk hours and hours about it, but it won’t change the fact that Grand Theft Auto IV is a very good game. The brand new video editor will offer tons and tons of extra gameplay and makes up for a lot of the waiting time the PC-gamers had to endure. Gamers that still aren’t satisfied can wait for the hundreds or so mods that will appear after the release. And with that enough gaming material to last at least until Grand Theft Auto V shows up – Gamer.nl

Impressively bumped-up visuals, more multiplayer carnage and a well-built video editor; this is the ultimate version of 2008’s premier sandbox game. If you’ve got the specs to run it. – Computer and Video Games

A genuinely ground-breaking blockbuster in videogame history. There were moments playing GTA IV that I thought back to my initial experiences with games, and realised exactly how far we’ve come. There’s never been anything quite like GTA IV in the world. That there makes me genuinely happy to be a gamer. – Eurogamer

Fallout 3


The PC version’s controls are certainly sharp and I found myself pulling off many more headshots and quick kills with a mouse and keyboard than I could on the console counterparts, but if you really do want to play with a gamepad, Fallout 3 does fully support the 360 controller on the PC as well. – AtomicGamer

In Fallout 3 Bethesda has made a very good thing, though it is somewhat hampered by the lack of variable scenery and a VATS that plays less than perfectly. – Game Over Online

The ironically devastated world of Fallout has never been better realized than in Fallout 3, offering a vast landscape that is almost relentlessly bleak in its hopelessness. It’s absorbing, immersive, paradoxically beautiful, and kind of depressing to play over long periods of time. – G4 TV

Super Smash Bros Brawl


 The graphics are beautiful, the audio is clear, the online system is one of the best on the Wii in over a year and a half, the stages are varied, the mini-game experiences are time-consuming, the trophies are endless, the game is much more balanced and the new items are a blast. – The Wiire
Four different control options as well as an as-deep-as-you-want-it combat style mean that whether you’re a parent looking forward to seeing Mario and Sonic have a punch-up, or a Nintendo fan wanting the Nintendo Chronicle (of love), Brawl can offer you an outstanding game. – DarkZero
Brawl is easily the most fun I’ve had on a Wii, and could be the most fun I’ve had with a game in ages. It’s just that good. There is just so much to do, and so many different and refreshing things added that it would be a crime not to at least take a look. – Thunderbolt

Metal Gear Solid 4


While debate will no doubt rage over the story and its outcomes, there really isn’t a single wrong move in the gameplay sections. – G4 TV

Where MGS4 really succeeds is in delivering an experience unlikely to ever be surpassed by Kojima ever again, providing fans everything they want to see, twists you won’t expect and more raw, lavish creativity than the video gaming medium probably deserves. – IGN AU

Coupled with a download via the Playstation Store that’ll explain the series to you so far, this game is playable even if you haven’t been following the series for years. – GamingTrend

Chrono Trigger


Chrono Trigger is one of the most charming, endearing, and most fun role playing games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. – Zentendo

Easily one of the best video games I’ve played in the recent past, and I’ve played quite a few of them. Whether or not you’re a fan of consoled-based role-playing games, you owe it to yourself to try this one; it might just change your opinion of them. – Worth Playing

One of the best roleplaying adventures ever made is revived for the Nintendo DS, and it’s as fantastic as it ever was. Despite being 14 years old this game still manages to wipe the floor with most games released in it’s wake. Design, script, sound, characters, the time traveling mechanic and a number of other features are simply so ingenious that more than a decade of subsequent games has seen few titles to rival this experience. – Level7.nu

Persona 4


An outstanding achievement in gaming. There’s no question that this is going to be one of my top games of the year, and any fan of JRPGs should be playing it when it’s released next week. – Gamervision

The truly stunning thing about Persona 4 is that it just doesn’t have any glaring flaws. Even though it doesn’t stand up to the graphics of the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, the clever art style makes up for that. Those who despise reading large blocks of text in games will be pleasantly surprised by the solid voice-over work applied to almost every conversation. – Wired

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 is a true gamer’s game. Atlus has outdone themselves again and proved that they are at the leading edge of role-playing. – GameCritics
