The past three weeks (including tonight) have seen the launch of the three biggest games of 2008. Two weeks ago was the launch of Fable 2, the much anticipated sequel to an award winning, though short, game by the famed Peter Molyneux. Much of the gameplay has been tweaked, the game is much longer, and you have a friendly dog to aid your character. Though I am not done with the game, my roommate (who is on his second time through) are enjoying it thoroughly. Last week, Chris and I were lucky enough to attend the launch of Bethesda's version of Fallout, number 3. I have spent more time playing through Fallout 3 and, though I'm not done, I would say it is more than worthy of a "Best Game of the Year" title.
Lastly, tonight, I'll be waiting for Gears of War 2! The original Gears of War was very probably my favorite game a short while ago. Aside from Halo 3 it was the primary reason that I purchased an Xbox 360 while in college. It has won many, many awards in the past, and I expect it will win many, many more in its second iteration.
I hope, for the first time in my life, I can play through all of these games to something that could be considered completion, if not to complete all of the various achievements. If only there were more hours in the day!
