    Default CONSOLE game of the year?

    Just interested in knowing what DF'ers think is the console game of the year. No, not just xbox, but PS3, DS, PSP, Wii - any console. No PC games - you lot are a different breed to us console gamers

    For me, my game of the year is FIFA 09. I really wasn't expecting it to be this good, and I've put in a hell of a lot of hours on it already. The 10vs10 is a sign of things to come with sport games, and I find myself already looking forward to FIFA 10! The other big game for me this year was Mario Kart Wii - the addition of the wheels (wii'ls?) was revolutionary, a simple bit of moulded plastic and the game play want through the stratosphere.

    Any other contenders?

    COD 4 is by far the best game ever.

    Done so much this year with the game - leagues, 1v1, big team games. But with other good games coming out COD 4 has gone on the back burner and Fifa 09 has taken up most of my time the past month and a half.

    But COD 4 still shades it as My best game of this year.

    GOW2 although it doesn't deserve it like the first one did. No games have been unmissable this year IMO.

    I'm going to throw a spanner in the works here. One of the games that got a lot of time from me this year was Boom Blox on the Wii!!

    Nice game with some tricky puzzles.

    My game of the year is Metal Gear Solid 4 without a doubt. But overall this year has been really good for games with titles such as Grand Theft Auto IV, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Fallout 3, FIFA 09, Gears of War 2, Fable 2 and Resistance 2. I look forward to 2009.

    Been plenty of good games this year - especially in the last few months. The big franchises haven't disappointed but for me, game of the year is undoubtly Fallout 3 on Xbox 360. It plays like a FPS but with RPG elements. It might have a few glitches but the map is massive and the attention to detail is amazing. A complete immersive experience where every thing you do has a consequence one way or another.

    I dedicated nigh of 50 hours of game play to Fallout 3 from start to finish and know there is plenty left in the game as I ended up ignoring a few side missions.

    I never really Oblivion or really played the previous Fallout games before but Falliut 3 just blew me away.

    I have been waiting for someone to mention this. I have been considering it rather than COD5.... I won't be getting either until the Orange Box is complete but next is one of either Fallout 3 or COD5
