    best new video game release this year

    In your opinion, what is the best new video game release of this year or the holiday season? For PS2 or Xbox only.

    although I'm actually enjoying the hell out of kill|switch at the moment - shooting around corners is way fun - I'd have to say that Gran Turismo 4 will be my pick of the year.

    it comes out in December. I should have my Gran Turismo 4 Prologue demo disk from Japan here shortly

    SSX3 looks way too over the top. There is nothing realistic about it. I haven't played it yet but it just looks cheesy, anyone actually played it yet? I am a big fan of Shawn Palmer, is it anything like that?

    That screenie is from SSX Tricky (the one before), and yes it was over-the-top, it's not a realistic boarding game. (You can't get out of your step-ins mid air, spin the board like a propellar on your chin, and lock back in, in real life.) But it was fun as hell. New one has bigger environments and is toned down a bit.

    I must say I thought ssx trickey was a tad more fun than ssx3. I just don't like realistic games as much. But it's still stinkin' fun!

    I'm loving Max Payne 2 right now. Not sure if it's out for the consoles, but I think it runs much better on the PC anyways. Excellent game. The new Tony Hawk Underground is pretty cool too.

    Another game I picked up recently was Empires, Dawn of the Modern World. I've been a big fan of that series since Age of Kings.

    And all the EA sports games made significant upgrades this year. Madden 2004, NCAA 2004, NHL 2004 and the new Tiger Woods are all awesome games.

    I ask you all to concentrate really hard on the freedom of all being. Its hard not to be very angry it is impossible We have to focus this confusion frustration helplessness feeling into a creative outlet Anger can spawn such amazing creativity through Street art Free art to teach each other know each other a language our evolution Go ahead and break some dumb rules

    Just got SOCOM II yesterday, and it's easily the most addictive online shooter i've ever played, and it's for PS2.

    tony hawks underground is good, but its short. You can finish it completely in two or three days. xbox just released grand theft auto 3 and vice city for the xbox, both packaged together, worth picking up if you havn't already played them to death. If you liked the morrowind series for xbox or pc, they just released the game of the year addition thats three times bigger than its already absurd size. Prince of persia is awsome in the demo, I'm sure the full game will be amazing.

    I almost bought this... but I was told something by the sales clerk that totally dissuaded me from purchasing that title. You have to remain a "good cop" to finish the game. if you go about, running people over, killing innocents, you lose your "cop points" and you'll never get an ending. and the ending is somewhat dependent upon how good of a cop you are.

    With that said... after I went around in my car pulling off drive-bys and what not, needless to say my cop points were in the negative. I'd never finish the game, but by the second stage, gangs were running when I came around.



    bad cop, no

    The US release date has been pushed to April 2004

    Doesn't the Jap demo release in Dec? Do you need your PS2 to be chipped to play with the Jap version?
