The G4A Game Of The Year Awards

The G4A Game Of The Year Awards

So 2007 is over and 2008 brings a new dawn on the gaming horizon we have decided to do a review of everything that has been good and bad about our beloved past-time in what was on of the most exciting of years.

Obviously, the best thing that happened to gaming in the year of 2007 was the launch of Game4Anything. Since our launch we have had lots of regular readers who have given us some good feedback about what we do. We thank all of you for your input and promise that 2008 will see even more expansion and exciting extras for G4A so keep it here!

So what about the games? Well 2007 saw the European launch of the Sony’s dream machine the Playstation 3! Not the all conquering launch Sony had in mind as bad press and awful PR mistakes from Sony Execs married with the enormous price tag saw the console’s sales start of slowly. Within the first 6 months Sony was forced to admit they had got it wrong by releasing a slimmed down version of the machine with no PS2 compatibility and no card reader and a smaller hard drive. The retail price of £299 still managed put most people off.

We have also seen the Wii go from strength to strength with titles such as Mario Galaxy and Zelda to name but few.

This year has also been kind to Microsoft with sales of the 360 still going strong, exclusives like Halo3, Bioshock and Mass Effect have done well to dive sales.

In this year we have seen a great many excellent games released and a few not so excellent ones too! Below we give the results of our awards!
