Show Me The Games You Got In 2008 & I'll Show You Mine

As 2008 comes to a close (or has already for those of you in The Future) it's always fun to look back on a year's worth of purchases and obsessively list twelve months of consumption.

This year represents, as far as I know, my biggest haul. The reason? This is the year I started to get review copies of games — a blessing and a curse. The total? Exactly 54 games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Nintendo DS, Wii, Xbox 360 and PC — just slightly more than one game per week. The majority of them I paid out of pocket for (including that copy of Cruis'n), with some courtesy of publishers or developers (Resistance 2, for example). One was a gift!

Hit the jump for my own personal list and leave your own 2008 haul in the comments.

Of that 54, I "beat" 22. Six I haven't played at all. The majority of the games acquired in 2008 were for the Xbox 360 (bias!!) with the least represented on my list being the PSP with just one game. Actually, I'm not sure if I got the Parodius Portable collection this year or last.

Anyway, make with the crazed listing!
