CNET rounds up the top 10 video games of 2008

Dead Space was not only one of the best games of 2008, it was also the scariest.

This year was certainly a great year to be a gamer. As usual, the first three-quarters of the year had an occasion hit or two, but come October it felt like we were bombarded with an infinite amount of must-play titles.

Filtering through the hundreds of releases in 2008, we've narrowed a list down an elite crop of games that stand out among the rest. We've played everything out there and made sure at least one exclusive representative from each platform made the list. So in no particular order may we present to you the top 10 video games of 2008 .
