Radio 1 listeners crown CoD4 as “favourite game”

Monday, 25th May 2009 21:24 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Call of Duty 4 has topped a Radio 1 poll to find its listener’s favourite game.

Football Manager 2009 came second, with Final Fantasy VII taking third.

The vote was actually from a list compiled by a list of journos from the UK media, including Eurogamer’s Johnny Minkley and CVG’s Gavin Ogden.

    Can anyone confirm Minkley sung Radiohead on SingStar?

    I have promised to kill him if he fucked up ;D

    Some of the positions on this list are painful.

    Halo and Goldeneye, COD4, fuck it, anything that’s higher than Half Life – sickening.

    Given Radio 1′s listnership, I’m not surprised at all.

    Cool game, but favorite? Far from it.

    Yet another award, 18 months later…

    Like it or not, COD4 must easily have the most awards of any game this generation.

    Well it’s good to see FFVII up there…so naturally the game is nowhere to be found on PSN outside of Japan.

    “I love how wound up people get about the games others like.”

    This :D

    And David, if it’s still getting awards nearly two years since the original release and with a sequel this year, then it’s done something absolutely right.

    Which it has.

    A man being beaten to death by rival football fans in Northern Ireland is sickening. What you pointlessly allow yourself to get wound up about is something far different.

    Why is Halo on the list twice? Idiots.

    Considering that’s a poll of a more mainstream audience I think that’s actually a pretty good top ten.

    Did anyone notice that only one Wii game (Super Mario Galaxy) made it onto that list? Surprising, again considering the audience.

    If it weren’t for that panel shortlisting the games, you can bet Wii Sports would’ve ended up in the top ten.
