As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is the time of year when everyone puts up lists of all kinds. Especially “Best Games of 2008” compilations. Since I played only one game this year (Avernum 5, and lucky to have even that), there’s not much of a list I could make. But what about you?

I’m sure some of you out there played a few new games this past year. And probably, you even liked one or two. So this is your chance. I won’t even ask for a “Top 10”. Just three.

The three new (released in ’08) PC games you played that you believe are worthy of the description “Top Game”. And a few lines for each as to why you consider the game a good one.

And hey, if you only have one or two instead, go ahead and put those up. I’m really interested in seeing what you think of this year’s “crop”. We have a lot of veteran gamers here, whose opinions are more valuable than most. So have at it, folks!
