There's no denying that 2007 was a vintage year when it came to video games, but 2008 isn't shaping up to be too shabby either.
Hurrah! A new year begins, and brings with it a load of new games to look forward to. After last year's glorious bounty it's tempting to believe that the best of this generation is behind us, but the Wii has just got going, the PS3 is only now beginning to shine, and the 360 still has plenty of power at its disposal. Meanwhile, a second wave of DirectX 10 games should give those new PC CPUs and GPUs a decent workout. With all this in mind, here's a quick preview of what to expect. The games listed here are a selection of potential highlights for 2008, but in this business nothing is certain. We'll be back to look at some other biggies and a few dark horses in the coming weeks.
