    This is an event game, the kind of thing you simply need to own ... even if you don't consider yourself a Grand Theft Auto fan.

    Media Molecule has created an amazingly fun and deep game that will allow people to create their own games and explore the creations of others.

    The PS3 finally gets a new signature title with a game that will have wide spread appeal. Killzone 2 sets new standards for graphics while providing a solid story with interesting characters. Co-op would have been nice addition but it's still the most fun I've had with a FPS game in a long time.

    In comparison to the amount of fun you have, those are middling problems at worst. Civilization Revolution is easy to learn, hard to put down, and a blast to play.

    Even with its non-stop references to heavy metal and specialized soundtrack, Brutal Legend comes off feeling like one of Tim Schafer's most accessible game. The real-time strategy aspects are carefully explained and never feel too daunting for the average console gamer. What's more, the game's humor and over-the-top story will make you want to see the game through to the end.

    Don't let The World Ends With You pass you up as it is easily the best DS title released in the last two years.

    A fantastic game that sucks you in and doesn't let go. Red Faction Guerrilla is a seamless merger of technology and story telling that raises the bar for the industry.

    With amazing graphics and a control scheme you've never seen before, this $20 DS game is a no brainer!

    Fans of DBZ, both the games and the show, can find enough here to keep them satisfied and coming back for more but fighting gamers may find the slower paced combat and the drama pieces a turn off.

    Galactic Civilizations 2: Twilight of the Arnor is one of the best expansions I have ever experienced in my many years of gaming.

    Last year’s spectacular action/shooter/RPG-lite finally makes its way to the PS3. If you haven’t already tried this on a different platform, do yourself a favor and pick it up.

    Regardless of whether you missed it the first time or not, Chrono Trigger is a must-own game!

    If you enjoy RPGs even in the slightest, you must own Persona 4. It is quite possibly, the greatest PS2 title ever made.

    Braid is an absolute masterpiece, from beginning to end.

    Capcom yet again proves that they are one of the few companies that knows how to resurrect a classic franchise.

    For Batman fans, this game is a long time coming. Taking the Unreal engine, Rocksteady has gone and made a truly fun superhero game and it looks incredible on the PC.

    Silly name aside, this is one of the most creative action 2D shooters I have seen in a long time.

    Dissidia: Final Fantasy manages to marry at least two completely disparate genres into one of the best games of the year. Not only is it exciting and full of fast-paced action, but it's also deep and full of replay value.

    It's updated graphics, awesome animation, and great fighting makes Street Fighter IV a great pick up.

    With the complete Phantasy Star collection, six Sonic the Hedgehog titles and a bunch of Streets of Rage titles, this Sega compilation is one of the most comprehensive yet. You would be a fool to pass up this $30 compilation disc!

    It's an action game full of great characters, funny writing and plenty of floating platforms. Throw in some devilishly clever level designs and a non-linear story, and you have a game that you'll want to replay over and over again!

    Sacred 2 is an excellent game that excels in many aspects while not doing anything terribly new or innovative for the genre.

    Red Dead Redemption is more than a great western, it's the first time this type of game has been successfully recreated for a home game console.

    Red Dead Redemption feels like a new breed of sandbox style gameplay. In the place of flashy cars, provocative women and crazy weaponry is the historically accurate and enthralling realm of the Wild West.

    The level of polish is near perfect.

    Single-player is a solid experience worth buying. But multiplayer is the prom queen here, and a serious Modern Warfare rival. With Infinity Ward in flux, Battlefield could emerge as the premiere military shooter in the next few years.

    The addition of the Wii MotionPlus controller provides an incredibly realistic swing mechanic. That alone makes the purchase of Tiger Woods '10 for the Wii mandatory for anyone that has enjoyed previous versions but been frustrated by the lack of feel in the controller. You will not be disappointed!

    If you liked Mass Effect 1 to any degree whatsoever, you’ll definitely love Mass Effect 2 with its improved combat and AI, and cinematics and storyline – sans the glitches we all know and hate from ME1.

    EA has turned a corner with their development of Need for Speed SHIFT. While it retains some elements of the traditional console game style, it also raises the bar for realism in a console-based racer. Budget for a steering wheel, though, to get fully benefit from the vastly better physics modeling.
