- In keeping with tradition of the United States' second most gambled-upon sporting event, horse racing's Triple Crown, it's time for gamers to put their money where their mouths are and predict their choice for Game of the Year 2008.
While we've already seen a wealth of great titles, gaming's biggest season has not yet even descended upon us; with it will come a flood of excellent titles ranging from RPG's including Fable 2 to FPS's like Resistance 2 and everything in-between. Here are the choices that have ReelGamers' engines revved for 2008.

From its unsurpassed score to its collectable trophy & sticker system, shoutouts to 8-bit era classics, and unrivaled local multiplay, Super Smash Brothers Brawl is a serious contender for the year's best. Odds: 5:2
Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, 360)
