Favorite Video Game of 2008

Best of 2008 Winner: Favorite New Video Game

What isn't there to love about your favorite game of 2008, Wii Fit? It's been proven to amp up your fitness level, and even help you become more flexible and shed pounds in the process. And although I can't deny the benefits of Wii Fit, I'm going to have to stray away from the pack here and give my 2008 Sugar Award to Fable II.

Not only was I completely obsessed with this RPG the second it hit my Xbox 360, but I continued to be obsessed with Fable II long after I finished the game. The open-world play, moral dilemmas, and awesome fighting sequences is what kept me coming back for more. . . and what makes me want to play it all over again. Plus, with over 350,000 copies being sold on launch day alone, I'm guessing there are more than a few of you out there that agree with me!

And hey, don't forget to check out the rest of the Sugar Network's Best of 2008 winners!

Fable 2 has it's perks and is a fan favorite among many people but the mulitplayer, as DaLy says has it's flaws. For me it was GTA 4 or Saint's Row 2, as far as console games go. However, for my DS I have to say that Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise was the one I got most sucked into. With your little world of pinata's to care for and your garden it's one of the most addictive games, besides World of Warcraft. Wii Fit has sold more than most of the games I've listed, only because it's cheaper than buying a subscription at a gym (I'm guessing, seeing as I have no time to subscribe or use a gym). I've enjoyed my Wii Fit but am ready to sell the console and the Fit because I'm tired of the not-so-great third party titles coming out for the Wii.

I liked Fable 2 okay, but it didn't live up to what it was hyped to be. Peter Molyneux again promises to give you the moon but instead delivers cheese. The problem I had with Fable 2 was it being bragged about its multiplayer capabilities--which were terribly executed and chock full of technical problems as well as limited options-- and their supposed multitude of player's life choices and experiences which were pretty much the same as the first. There comes a point where you have so many wives/partners, children, gold and land that the only experience left to explore is becoming a homicidal nutjob. I would've gone with either Prince of Persia or Little Big Planet.

Wha? Wii Fit? Really? Um. I'm really glad you didn't go with the crowd on that one, geek! I haven't been able to get much time on my Fable 2 yet, but it is definitely a fantastic game.

I love Wii Fit, as it's about the only thing that can get me to exercise (sad, I know) and is pretty much the only use I have for the Wii, but my top 3 games of the year are all on 360 and are all sequels: Fable II, Saints Row 2, and Rock Band 2.
