Really? A post?

December 31, 2008

Sure! Why not?!

It’s almost 2009 and I haven’t updated here in a long, long time. Things have been… a mess, for quite awhile now. Not just game things either… all things. I try to keep the blogging focused on gaming, but there’s been a lot going on away from my hobby that has pretty much precluded spending a few minutes here or there updating this page.

I’m not going to say that will change anytime soon. It probably won’t. But what I will try to do is run down my top ten games of 2008 over the first ten days of 2009 just as I did at the beginning of this past year. Most guys just give you a list, but not the why behind their picks. I like to do a little more than that. So starting on January 1, I’ll layout my ten favorites.

Games you won’t see there include Fallout 3, Persona 4, Far Cry 2, LittleBigPlanet, Gears of War 2, Metal Gear Solid 4 and probably ten or twelve more you might expect. The main reason is usually because I haven’t had a chance to play many of the chart topping games of 2008. I do have Persona 4 here next to me, but haven’t had a minute to try it out (and I really want to…).

All that said, I do think I’ve got ten pretty great titles in my top ten, and some you might not expect. Once I’m done, I’ll point out some other games you might want to try that probably would’ve been in a top 20 list.

I managed to make it eleven days straight with these updates in 2008, so cross your fingers I can do it again in 2009. Look for the first one on January first!
