"infinity ward making cod4 great after creating the craphole that was cod3 (opinion)" The reason that cod3 was a craphole is because infinity ward didn't make cod3, Trerarch (or something like that) did.

Bioshock is an amazing game, Halo 3 is sheer awsomeness, and Call of Duty 4 is simply intense. But Rock Band is the best by a mile. Play World Tour mode with 3 other people. Nothing else like it, anyware.

i understand bioshock is a great game definitely a ten.... but come on, shooter of the year???? i can understand maybe story of the year ( if you had that categorie ) or campaign of the year (if you had that ether). but seriously look at bungie and all of the gamers they have brought to the 360 with halo 3 or infinity ward making cod4 great after creating the craphole that was cod3 (opinion) seriously. bioshock even possibly deserved game of the year. you have to also consider that it didn't even have live, the biggest reason why this console puts the wii and the ps3 to shame. i still love your magazine though and i do agree with rockband as game of the year cuz it brings together friends more personally than any other game has done before

Why did that dumb alien guy win sidekick of the year, the obvious choice was Companion Cube, never before have I felt so connected and emotionally bonded to a geometric shape. (with hearts) Add in masterful voice acting and slick animation and you have your real winner!

Hey yo I got Rock Band and I totally agree with there decision of making this the Game of the Year. When I got Rock Band I was like "I don't even listen to rock so why did I get this" but once I played it I instantly got hooked on it. I played for at least 5 hours a day for the first month. Now I am hooked on to Rock and I would like to see any other game beat this one. So yall better stop sippin on that haterade and respect.

I know Rock Band is a good game, but there are better games, in my opinion that is. I think Halo 3 and CoD4 are way better than Rock Band, and I even think Skate. is a better game than rock band, and come on, Bioshock as shooter of the year? I didn't even think that game deserves a 9.0.

I thought that Gaz from call of duty 4 would at least be a runner up for sidekick of the year

I thought it was Kool OXM chose RockBand it was different. I mean every year they pick either pick a Halo Sequel, GTA Sequel, or just some other shooting game. Don't get me wrong I like shooting games of all kinds but every year thats what they pick a goddam shooter. So this year they chose something completely different which shows the value they have for games that are not from the shooting genre.

OXM chosing Rock Band as game of year proves to me how utterly clueless OXM really is when it comes to reviewing games. OXM ignored their previous reviews and chose a game that wasn't even one of the top games in 2007!. COD4, Halo3, Bioshock, and Mass Effect all should have been chosen before Rock Band.

i thought scores represented how good the game is if a 9.5 is awsome then shouldnt a 10 be better??
avatar

dietcoke4fatty

there were like 5 10s this year and you choose rock band? imean rock band is defenently one of the best games but not thee best. you could have chose a game that set the new standerds for a shooter, like i dont know, maybe bioshock or cod4!

Starmin, good point, but keep reading -- the Rock Band entry explains some of that. So does the podcast roundtable discussion.

Rock Band deserves it. It keeps me and my friends playing for 8 hours straight one night, and then the next morning, we get up and play, take a break for a while, and play for another 8 hours. And the drums are just what pulls it all together.
