IGN is great, especially Nintendos Team.
While I don't go there for reviews or anything like that anymore (or at least havn't lately) I do go every week to listen to the Nintendo teams podcast "Nintendo Voice Chat".
Ya Bozon, Matt and Craig are all awesome, love listening to the podcasts, or even those rare videos 'IGN Playground' they post up of them in their rad looking Nintendo office playing wii games ect, just anything they do is great. But, the thing that i hate about IGN though is the Xbox and even the Sony team. They all seem anti-Nintendo....And their reviews arent exactly spot on when compared to Nintendos team....i mean seriously, GTA got a 10?..really? it had alot of problems, but personally i hate the Gutter-but white trash Sandbox genre...And As people, they just seem kind of....how do you put it, stupid? they've got nothing on Matt, Bozon, Matt, Peer or Craig.
But ya, IGNs top game lists of 08 were kind of lame...Bozons was great, Matts was alright as well as Craigs...but you looks at the Xbox and PS3 team, and they didn't have one Wii or DS game listed...hell they didn't even list Mega Man 9 or SSB Brawl as one of their favorites. Bozon was the only dude to list MM9 on his list. And only one or two people had Braid on their list as well. The number one spots usually went to Dead Space, Left 4 Dead or FallOut, pretty much the big budget graphically impressive 3D Shooter...
The best games I played in 08, would definitly had to of been Mega Man 9, Braid, Wario Land Shake it!, SSB Brawl and Dead Space.....Missed out on FallOut(i'm just not interested) and Left 4 Dead
