This game came to me as part of the THQ Humble Bundle. I myself had skipped over it up until this point, for no real good reason. I had never got round to it and well, you know how it is. After getting this bundle it was the first game I played; being in a game drought at this point for me personally, it came at a perfect time. From the moment I picked it up it oozed quality and love. You play War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and you’re accused with starting the end of the world a tad prematurely. The environments are great, along with the way this game feels to play. It’s naturally weighty which, given War’s short stocky build and over-the-top weapon set, seems a perfect fit. The gameplay is a mixture of faster paced spectacle-fighters such as Devil May Cry and adventure titles such as Zelda. The story kept me coming back for more, while the gameplay kept me wanting to play just a little bit longer.

Top 10 Video Games of 2007

The 2000s decade was a terrible decade for all of us. We constantly worry about terrorism since 9/11, George Bush wasn’t the president we wanted to run our country, and there were A LOT of disappointments happening every year compared to the 1990s and any other decade before this one. But after enduring this awful decade, there was at least one great year that I can say is worth looking back at this decade. Not since 1998 did we ever had a phenomenal year in not just gaming, but in everything else that was happing in these 365 days of our here. The Youtube sensation boomed out of popularity with social media, some of the best music we’ve ever heard came out of this very year, and the best line of video games were released in this very year. We all anticipated 2007 for just Halo 3 to finally be released, but since every game company wanted to beat the competition, they gave their best efforts. I assure you that when I do the many lists of the best of the 2000s, guaranteed a lot of stuff that came from 2007 will end up on many of the lists. For once we were given a chance to experience the wonders and magic of the 7th Generation Consoles with HD & Motion gaming with the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii. Many of these games in 2007 are not only just great but it is a landmark on how we play games and where gaming was heading. Just when you expected Halo 3 was going to be the best game of the year we were given so many brand new releases and other FPS that dominated the likes of Halo 3. Whereas the industry had become sequel-obsessed in the past few years, 2007 launched franchises left and right. Assassin’s Creed, Modern Warfare, Portal, Dirt, The Witcher, Peggle, BioShock, Super Mario Galaxy, Rock Band, and Crysis all got their starts that year, and even the sequels on that list totally reinvented their franchises. Living in the year 2007, as the month go on, it became apparent that we were living n the good times with our beautiful hobby. There was something special for every kind of gamer for 2007 and these 10 games makes us wish that we can relive this moment when it was a sensation to us all.
