PSXE Game Of The Year Nominations

Well, it's that time of the year, and we're just about ready to unveil all the big winners of 2008. But before we do, we're giving you a look at all the nominees, thereby giving you a chance to debate 'til you're blue in the face.

There were plenty of fantastic titles in 2008, and as we look back, we start to realize just how far the industry has come. In fact, we've come a long way since the start of this new generation; few will argue that we've all had memorable experiences this year. We can't drop any hints regarding all the winners, but we'll be interested to hear what you think...will we spread the wealth? Will one or two games dominate? Will there be surprises? Who knows? What we do know is that we'll announce the winners just after New Year's, so stay tuned for the big feature. For those of you who give us a lot of respect and put a lot of emphasis on our reviews, you should probably agree with a lot of our decisions. But we won't satisfy everyone...and that's half the fun. ;)
