    WC's Fave Five Video Games of 2008!!




    I dunno, you tell me.

    As we've done time and again, it's time to count down some video games. From the lovely time we all in 2018, it's time to hop ten years into the wayback machine and see what you lovelies were doing a decade ago. There's plenty of great games to choose from as the 360/PS3/Wii generation was hitting its stride, but only five can reign supreme in our WC Hall of Fame. Which will they be? I'm giving you until Monday, May 27th at 11:59 PM to let me know. Send me a list of your fave five video games of 2008, and the results will be tallied by yours truly and posted up here.

    Usual rules apply:
    1. North American release dates are used in the event a game was released at different times in different regions
    2. Ports and remasters are not allowed but remakes are. Please make sure you are voting for the original incarnation of a game or a complete remake of it. When in doubt, ask.
    3. Please verify each game you submit to make my life easier. Not everything on these Wiki lists are NA release dates or completely original releases, so click through to the game's page specifically to make absolutely sure your game qualifies. Sorry for the extra bit of homework, but I'll love you forever.

    Yeah, I'd also say '99 beats out 08.

    But 98 is pretty much impossible to top.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    lol

    1) Mario World
    2) F zero
    3) Link to the past(which kills all your list of games combined)
    4)Final Fantasy 3
    4) WIng Commander (dos)
    5) Mega Man 3
    6) Kings Quest 5 (dos)
    7) Gargoyles Quest(gameboy)
    8) Pilot wings
    9)Ultima 6
    10)Secret of Monkey Island
    11) Mario Bros 3
    12) Ninaj Gaiden 2
    13) G-Loc air battle(arcade)
    14) Castle of Illusion Mickey Mouse
    15)Sonic the Hedgehog
    16) Street Fighter 2 (arcade)
    17)Super Castlevania
    18) Smash tv (arcade)
    19) Metroid 2 (gameboy)
    20) Lemmings


    Mario world, Mario 3 , Sonic and Link to the past. that pretty much destroys your entire list.

    Mines in no order.

    But Link, Super Mario World and Mario 3 would be easy top 3. Mega Man 3 is amazing and so his Street Fighter arcade. Gargolyes Quest is the bomb


    Ill give you credit for naming Battlezone though

    No the fuck it doesn't. You are so out of your element it's ridiculous. You've proven time and time again that you don't know what you are talking about and at this point you are embarrassing yourself. The best game on your list (Link To The Past) can't blow my "entire list out of the water" when I have at least 5 games BETTER (Ocarina Of Time, Half-Life, Metal Gear Solid, StarCraft, RE2) so this is comical. Am I getting worked into a shoot here?

    You have proven time and time that you are stuck in the year 1990. The greatest bands came from the early 90's. The best movie of all time was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) and you think the greatest era in gaming was the early 16bit era. You are so out of touch with reality and it wouldn't be so bad if you were humble about it, rather than treating your garbage ass, antiquated opinions as matters of fact. As old as you are, it's a wonder if you'll ever grow the fuck up

    And if you want to be technical, Super Mario 3 came out in 1988 so you may as well cross that shit off your list.

    You know whats comical? You crying and having bitch fit in your flamingo shirt yelling at your computer screen. i don't apologize for anything sunshine. Why wouldn't i think the music i listen to is the best? why wouldn't i think TMNT is the best comic movie? I fuckin love it. Why wouldn't i think the best gaming era was in the early 1990s? by your dumb definition... More Modern = Best

    I get it you were a little jiggy and probably didn't play video games back then. Maybe you never went to an arcade

    And yes Link to the past and its impact at the time destroy all those games. You can type out "you don't know what you re talking about" all you want because that's basically all you got.

    Ocarina of time better than Link to the past lol, Not really but i agree its the second best Zelda game RE hahahahahahah. Half life lol.

    Now i totally expect the lollyPop Guild to rush to come defend you. They didn't play video games till the late 90s early 2000s as well. Maybe you re mad i actually provided a list.

    Want to talk about growing up....... im laughing at you and you are fighting back tears of anger. over a difference of opinion. Maybe its time you grow up.


    it seems you are fixated on people "embarrassing" themselves on the net. Dude you're name on screen just like everyone else. Thats all you are. it s nothing to be embarrassed about. i really don't care what you, Silk, Ed, Jon or anyone thinks of me. That's growing up.

    Jesus, you are so out of touch that you think 1998 (21 years ago) is modern. I'm 34 years old. I grew up with the SNES and the Genesis. My mother worked at an arcade, I likely spent more time there than you did. The difference between you and I is that I, like most people here that you seem to mistakenly think you are more knowledgeable than, I evolved, I grew. I moved on to the ps1/n64/Saturn. Then to the ps2/Gamecube/X-Box. I didn't stick with the generation I knew and loved while talking shit about a bunch of games I've never played. Which is what you do. I gave you a list of 40 games, I doubt you've played more than 5 (if that)

    You didn't play any games in 2018 and there your simple ass was in the conversation all the while because even though this is shit you know nothing about, you can't stand not interjecting yourself into a conversation to flex your superiority. Your opinion is worthless because you are a liar. You have never played the games you talk shit about. You have never watched any of the movies you trash. The music, mostly hip hop, that you are constantly clowning on? You don't know anything about it. You are legit one of the fakest people on this site and I don't give a shit how much heat I get for telling you what a phony, vapid loser you are.

    I never listened hip Hop?

    Like Wutang clan, NWA, BEatnuts, MOP, Cypress Hill, Channel Live, Tribe Called Quest, Gangstar. That's all my friends listen to growing up. Im the one who didn't. i listen skate Punk. But don't know why you mentioned it.

    And yes i have played games of 2018. Im playing NBA playgrounds 2 right now. What fuckin Grindfest, I played Spiderman(still not better than M AU though.)

    Im playing Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 also but thats January 2019.

    Just to be clear... just because i loved those old games i think and highly of them doesn't mean i never played other systems.


    I said "more Modern = better"

    Like i said i don't care what you think, but funny anyway.

    Also you had another fit and im asking myself what's he so mad about .... because i said i d wager SNES first year and/or because i said Link to the Past blows away his list.

    think about it..........


    are you afraid that I know more than you?

    rofl.

    I collect vintage games, and the house I bought has an extra bedroom for my game collection. I collect mostly stuff from 77-94, and even I think it's hilarious and obnoxious to try and consider 1998 modern and not vintage. Even I think you're coming off as an elitist douche here.

    1998 is widely considered the best year in gaming history for a reason.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I am not mad that you have a different opinion. I'm tired of you treating your opinion as fact when they are such bad opinions. You could have intellectually tried to make a point about Link to The Past being better than any game on my list (it's not but whatever) and instead you look at a list that has Metal Gear, Ocarina Of Time, RE2, Half-Life, just to name a few, and you come back with a statement so asinine as "My one overrated SNES game blows your entire list out of the water." It's that condescending douchebag behavior that I hate about you. If you are going to be a condescending douchebag at least be knowledgeable on the topic instead of talking out of your ass.

It's that condescending douchebag behavior that I hate about you. If you are going to be a condescending douchebag at least be knowledgeable on the topic instead of talking out of your ass.
    You are speaking about intellectual in that flamingo shirt?

    I kid i kid

    ...or am i....

    You fuckin asked for a list and i gave you one.

    Link to the past has a amazing story, is super fun. Way more fun than the ones you listed. Thats what i base entertainment on...how much i enjoy them. Thats all i need to provide.

    Dont throw around douchebag when you re the one the one throwing the fit.

    Look at you sitting there trying to pigeon hole me acting like you know me. I bet you re mad i gave some 2018 titles huh?


    Grow up hes says. Put me on ignore and stop acting like a child if you dont like my opinions.

    My flamingo shirt is boss as fuck but if you want to resort to personal attacks based on appearance, you should probably upload a picture of yourself for the first time in the 8 years you've been here. I guess that would actually involve you posting something on here other than your worthless hot takes and anyway you'd probably tell me that I'm not old enough to appreciate your neckbeard or some dumb shit like that

    Indy I am not going to engage with you on this anymore because it's unbecoming of a staff member and I feel responsible for derailing Silks thread. Sorry for the things I said even if I meant almost all of it.

    hey like i said it doesn't bother me at all. if you need to unload some pent up frustration, you can surely use me. I thought it was mildly entertaining
