To me it seemed that this year been kind of weak so far on game releases. I know that Sept, Oct and Nov have some "possible" good releases but the overall year seemed kind of weak for the gaming industry in my opinion i was wonder if other people felt that way as well

lol are you insane, this year has had alot of good games.
some of em are.-

- orange box
- UT3
- dmc4
- mass effect
- racedriver GRID (i didnt like this one but it is popular)
- GTA (the latest, i don't remember the name lol)
- AoC (tough the bugs killed it for me)

and so on, i can't remember everything in my head.... if crysis was this year then i'd add that to the list
i'm not sure if all of these were from 2008, too lazy to check.

You can't really say this year sucked but the first falf of it did. but games like FF IV for DS and ninja gaiden for 360 and GTA IV were good after 6 months. hopefully the last strecth of this year has some good games coming...waiting for mercenaries 4. SC IV came out too so this year wasn't complete waste.....maybe the first half

i dont know i mean like there hasnt been anything new liek everyone saying it seems after the hype for "whose got the better console system" boiled down the industry try to balance it out by only speeding up the release of all the established game i.e. GTA. I just dont think that they been trying like they only did what they knew because they lsot to much in the console wars...PC kinda just keeps a steady pace

lol you always quote me.

and yeah, i agree, I think that many of the games coming may be awesome, tough i like the first half of this year too. A good example is the highly anticipated spore, tough i'm not sure if i'm going to like it (i haven't tried the demo yet)
