You probably figured out already that we’re not doing a lot of talking at GDC this week — it’s been pretty busy around here with everyone cracking on Fallout 3. Still, if you need a break from all the GDC news, here are a few newsworthy mentions I thought I’d share.
I noticed Destructoid has shared the results of their “which one game has eaten up more hours of your life than any other game ever has” debate, and both Morrowind (#6) and Oblivion (#2) made the top ten. Even combining votes, these games would still end up trailing World of WarCRACK craft. No surprise there.
Just when I thought everyone had shared their “Most Anticipated” lists, two more came to my attention. Over at 1UP, Fallout 3 made their “Most Anticipated PC Games of 2008” list. That doesn’t mean they don’t think it’ll be good game on Xbox 360 or PS3 — multiplatform releases were only mentioned for one platform.
Moving on to the next list, Gametrailers has a video up today that shares their “Top 10 Anticipated Games of 2008.” Fallout 3 takes the #3 spot. Since the video is at the top of this post, you might already know that.
Finally, we got word from Game Industry News that their GOTY nominees have been announced. We’re excited to learn that we’re nominated in four different categories. Shivering Isles took in two nominations (Best RPG and Best Environment), while Oblivion is one of six nominees up for Best PlayStation 3 game. Rounding out our nominees, Star Trek: Legacy is up against some steep competition in the Best Soundtrack category. If you’re interested in voting for any of the nominees, sign up for their newsletter.
