Have you ever played through a game whose world seemed so real and alive that you felt as though you were a part of it? A strong, compelling atmosphere is as important for games as it is for movies or novels to produce a willing suspension of disbelief and generate emotional responses and immersion. By crafting a realistic environment, breathing life into it with just the right audio and visual cues, and tying it all together with a strong narrative component, game developers are able to craft fantastic worlds that draw us in and leave us begging for more. 2008 saw a number of games that managed to do just this, whether you prefer the desolate wastelands of Fallout 3 or the sprawling urban chaos of Grand Theft Auto IV, the radioactive wonderland of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky or the zombie apocalypse of Left 4 Dead. Here are the nominees for Best Atmosphere.
