GR's Best Custom Videos of 2008

2008 was a big year for everyone: Britney Spears made a comeback, The United States elected a new president… but of course nothing was as significant as the custom videos our site produced. Yes, we’re this self-indulgent.

Here is a compilation of our personal favorites from last year, starting with our live-action videos. We’re no Cruises or Pitts, and maybe we’ll just never be actors, but at the very least our site allows us to have a little taste of the dream.

Destroying controllers in slow-motion (Sep 2, 2008)

Gears of War 2 - What to do with your Lancer (Sep 8, 2008)

Rock Band 2 has wireless instruments (Sep 19, 2008)

All Cheer Squad - Cheerleader ambush! (Oct 22, 2008)

Bionic Commando – Bionic arm charms, destroys city! (Dec 22, 2008)

    LOL this is a great example of why gamesradar is my favorite gaming website. Rock band 2 was great. I bet PC gamer is starting to regret that alliance. finally the people who hate gamers was insulting yet halarious. Keep it up GR!

    Better than your extreme basejumping, you should try Extreme Chicken its awesome. Go to that one helicopter in Algonquien I think and ride that helicopter up to the building right next to it. Extending out are bars you and a friend can run at each other on, and whoever falls is dead lol.

    I hope all of the people who starred in the "These People Hate You!" video all die and go to hell. Except for the comic book guy.
