    Grand Theft Auto IV is by far the most complete package I have seen in the last five to ten years.
    • 97 Metascore

    Grand Theft Auto V is everything you’d expect in a Rockstar product and once again, they have managed to significantly outdo themselves.

    Metroid Prime's strengths are so overwhelmingly impressive that its minor faults quickly become an afterthought. It's quite simply a remarkable game, and a stunning achievement.

    After a while it can get tedious, but while it lasts it is excellent to play before going out before you feel the need to go back to something like FIFA or Bust A Move.

    If there is one game for the Playstation 3 this year that I would say is a "must buy" Uncharted 2 is that game, it truly is one of the best games in years and could very well be the best Playstation 3 game of 2009.

    Skyrim is the game that I would highly recommend to damn near anyone. It's not too hard to figure out and it's got such an enormous amount of stuff to do that anyone would be able to see what is so special about the game.

    The navigation, the combat, the dungeons, the characters, and the peril you must face as that young elf boy in green are all fantastic.

    I can't express in words to do the game justice how large and well drawn out these cities are.

    The missions are a lot more complex then they were in GTA3, which means you will get more into the character as well as the plot, which means even more fun.

    The best game I’ve played all year. It is an extremely fun platformer with stunning graphics not to mention the most extensive level creation tool I’ve ever seen.

    The whole Wild West has been a huge missed opportunity for the video game industry, until now where we finally have a game that has put the Wild West back on the map.

    Superby detailed licensed cars, stunning visual effects, multiple modes and top draw sountrack makes this one a winner.

    This game goes where no Xbox Live enabled game has gone before.

    The Last of Us is a masterful tale of two individuals who are both authentic and flawed. It creates one of the most memorable video game experiences I have ever played and I believe its the best game to come out in the last ten years.

    Perfection is redefined in Link's latest adventure, and making it easily the best game ever, bar none.

    Even if you’ve played The Last of Us, owning one of the best games of the last ten years in all its 1080p glory is worth the price of admission.

    Batman: Arkham City is the best superhero game available, it is a perfect example of how a license should be used in a game. It's not quite as open world as I would have liked, but it is polished to near perfection.

    Mass Effect 2 is a top notch game because of its focus on refined gameplay, a great story, and its commitment to letting the player decide what happens in the end.

    Even though the game is just a remake of a twelve year old title it is still the best game currently on a handheld and the only reason to own a 3DS right now.

    Bioshock is an absolutely fantastic game and one of the best of this generation first on the 360, and now just as good on the PS3.

    Gorgeous visuals, fantastic gameplay, and just one of the most entertaining shooters of a long time.

    Bethesda fulfills the hopes of fans with this truly epic RPG, laced with genuinely jaw-dropping next-gen visuals and the customary deep and satisfying gameplay.

    Bioshock Infinite is the best shooter I have played in a long time. It is an incredible achievement artistically, narratively, and technically. I can’t think of a better game to close out and define this decade-long console generation.

    The hard-as-nails Ninja Gaiden is back, with improved camera system, a new mission mode and bonus game. At a budget price, you'd be crazy not let own this gem.

    If you are a fan of the series, or are looking to get into fighting games, Street Fighter IV is one of the best we have seen in many, many years.
    • 94 Metascore

    By far the best game that the series has produced.

    Far from just a lazy rehash, the more user-friendly camera system and online play makes the game even more enjoyable this time around.

    What impresses me so much about this game is not only that it has a tremendous amount of hype surrounding it which it does, but that it delivers even through all of that.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 is essentially the best game out there on the PS3, and can easily compete with any other game on any system.
