And the Hulie goes to....
Any videogamer worth his salt is going to know that Gamespot is a mark of quality in an overcrowded cyberworld of games, platforms, and brands. What may surprise you instead is the laser-beam focus that Gamespot has brought to Hulu. Ever since it's inception on Hulu, Gamespot has focused on a three-pronged content scheme that brings gamers exactly what they're most interested in: Gameplay Footage, Video Reviews, and Game Trailers.
I would argue that Hulu is actually a better way to experience Gamespot than their own website, which can be a little overwhelming.
So, what does the best gaming review site say are the best video games on the planet? Here's a list of their coveted "Game of the Year" title holders from the inception of the system (as per Wikipedia):
- 1996: Diablo (PC) 
- 1997: Total Annihilation (PC) 
- 1998: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)  and Grim Fandango (PC) 
- 1999: Soulcalibur (Dreamcast) and EverQuest (PC) 
- 2000: Chrono Cross (PlayStation)  and The Sims (PC) 
- 2001: Grand Theft Auto III (PS2)  and Serious Sam: The First Encounter (PC) 
- 2002: Metroid Prime (GameCube) 
- 2003: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube) 
- 2004: World of Warcraft (PC) 
- 2005: Resident Evil 4 (GameCube) 
- 2006: Gears of War (Xbox 360) 
- 2007: Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) 
- 2008: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PlayStation 3) 
After 20,000 audience votes, the audience favorite was also "Gamespot," with a whopping 52% of the vote.
