The Associated Press put out a pretty good year-end list about games and named BioShock
its game of the year. Sure, the AP almost invalidates
the entire year-end round-up by mistakenly listing BioShock
as available for PlayStation 3; however, because the wire service didn't simply phone in Halo 3
as their game of the year, we'll generously overlook their faux pas
. Speaking of Halo 3
, the AP actually says it was the "most overrated game" of the year ... not saying we agree, just sayin' is all.
The AP gave more accolades to the likes of The Orange Box
for "best deal" and Rock Band
for "best game that involves getting off the sofa" while trashing Lair
as the "best idea for a game gone horribly wrong." One sentiment that we think everyone can agree with: the federal law requiring all good games to be released within weeks of each other has to be overturned.
