It’s not all bad news though, IP like Ghostbusters and Batman will both be appearing in licensed games, and Dragon Age: Origins seems to have potential as an open ended sword and sorcery time sink. Even the Wii will be picking up an action game in the form of conduit. Who knows … we may even see another DN:F trailer by the fall.
“2008 was a mixed year for gamers and while 2007 was undoubtedly one of the best years in gaming that anyone can remember, 2008 didn’t quite manage to top it. There were some gaming highlights to be sure, but for every Braid or Left 4 Dead there was a disappointment to counter it.
Still, at least there was plenty of cheesecake. It wasn’t all bad.
Our hope remains however that 2009 will prove a better, more exciting year for gaming – one not mired in DRM worries and console exclusives. Who knows, with a host of innovative titles on the horizon and an increasingly popular indie scene 2009 may manage to top even 2008.”
