    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I've seen my brother play it on a PS2 and a PC for years and never really cared, but only recently I decided to play it myself and found it was much deeper and funnier than I thought. Absolutely great game!

    Well in 2007-2008 I've actually been impressed by Zack and Wiki on the Wii. The game was absolutely freaking amazing! I had a hell of a time with this games seriously. AAA game!

    Also been impressed by Okami (PS2 + Wii xD), really nice game. Enjoyed it much more than a Zelda.

    Mario Party 8 honestly, I knew it was coming, but didn't think it'd use the Wiimote so damn good. That, or Call of Duty 4 on 360 and it's success.

    One thing about this gen of consoles is that so may great games have and are appearing across all the three formats its had to get the time to enjoy them all.

    i agree. I remember in 2004 or something there was such a dry spell in games it wasn't even funny.

    my surprise of the year is...Drake's Fortune(ok its last year but I had no idea how good it would be)

    Dead and Furious, it got quite bad reviews but i like zombie type games and i bought it new for £9.99, really enjoyed the game, its a bit like the House of the Dead games.

    Also i have to mention Uncharterd aswell, i never liked Tomb Raider games and seeing Uncharterd was 3rd person and like Tomb Raider i wase'nt sure but after the opening cut scene and the cheesy cliche but excellent dialogue i was hooked right to the end, its one game i have'nt traded in and i will play again on a harder difficulty level to see if i can collect more of the artifacts.

    Really loved Uncharted, it's a crime that it didn't do better sales wise but it was an excellent experience. One of the best adverts for the next gen consoles so far imo, puts many a PC game to shame. :)

    Sadly, none. Though, I can say it's because I haven't played to many of the "iffy" games. The place where I rent my stuff doesn't always have everything for the new consoles. I can tell you some I thought would be good but sucked. SSX Blur. Such horrible controls.

    Skate. I thought from the videos it would be impossible to play but dam it's the perfect skate game. It makes it seem like THPS was made for the disabled. That and GTA4. Never played a GTA after the second one. Bought #4 on a whim and some badass reviews. I wasn't sure how I would like the style and I was nicely supprised to find out it was well worth the money. 2 of the best and solidly made games I have played this year.

    Folklore on PS3....Resistance Fall of Man close 2nd.

    Didnt think anything special about it till I started playing. Voice acting is cheesy in some parts, but the story is top notch. Ending has a HUGE twist that kinda makes you go WOW. Well thats my opinion anyway...

    I could say GTAIV also hehe but thats to be expected, so I'll go with Folklore.

    N/A for me, 2008 has yet to bring something really unexpected to my hungry (xbox 360) stomach

    GTA 4 was good but disappointing in more then one way (to me at least)

    Uncharted was great, also GTA4 (thought quite not up to the hype).
