    Involving missions, cutting edge graphics and an excellent narrative that, while not always living up to its potential, strives mightily to expand the storytelling and emotional connection while maintaining the right balance of fun and adventure.

    It takes a rich universe and focuses it on a very popular character, and didn't just throw him into some clone of Jak 3, but instead designed a game around Daxter and the PSP.

    It's a win-win situation for gamers no matter if they've done all there is to DMC3 or have never picked the game up in their lives. And now, the wait for Devil May Cry 4 is on.

    While the single player mode won’t last you a long time, challenging others to break your score is where the game’s bread-and-butter is at. Highly recommended.

    Forza Motorsport 2 had to do a lot to achieve its predecessor’s own lofty accolades, and this entry certainly has all the right moves to match and – in some respects – surpass what the original Forza did.

    The Contra series is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and Contra 4 is a gift to the fans. If you're a fan of the series or even if you just like shooters in general, Contra 4 is the game for you.

    Bayonetta is a superb action title that gets props for still being very challenging for the hardcore action crowd, but accessible enough for less-skilled players to play – the forgiving systems in place allow for minimal frustration, which usually leads to said player becoming much more skilled than they were before.

    Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time is yet another great entry in a consistently excellent franchise, and the best entry in the series since the PS2 days.

    Easy to learn, difficult to master, this game is perfect for gaming on the go.

    Medal of Honor is more than just a reboot of a storied franchise. It takes the FPS genre to a whole new level.

    A fun (if ultimately shallow) single player campaign is dwarfed by an incredible online component that takes everything you loved about the first game, adds some new twists, and turns the whole thing on its head.

    If you are looking for the game with the flashiest moves, the nicest dunks, the most replay value, the most features and some nice graphics, then don't stop to think about it – cop NBA Street V3 today.

    Literally one of the biggest games ever created and it will take you weeks or even months just to see everything it has to offer.

    A great game, though not quite as good as those glory days of 2003 and 2004, when the series was simply amazing.

    This is, perhaps, the best videogame ever based upon a comic book. Combine that with the rich pallette of characters that are still untapped and it's no wonder that a sequel is already under way.

    inFamous 2 is as close to an essential PS3 game as you're going to get in the run up to Uncharted 3, and with the inclusion of the UGC feature, it might even last you until then. Cole McGrath isn't winning any awards for emotional input, but he is tearing the house down with his acrobatics and incredible firepower. When you play this, you'll feel like a real superhero, or super villain, and whichever way you swing, you'll love every minute.

    For anyone looking for something a little different out of their First Person Shooter experience, Darkwatch is that game.

    It's short length keeps it from scoring any higher, but fans of Contra and shooter fans in general will find a great game in Neo Contra.

    Super powers and the most comprehensive list of substitutable parts possible alone isn't quite sufficient to slice into the series with a fresh enough cutting edge.

    Namco, in trying to fix what wasn't broken to begin with, ended up loosening a few screws where the job wasn't needed.

    After the mess of new ideas that was Mega Man X7, it's amazing that X8 can go back to the basics and seem completely fresh by not doing anything new.

    Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King isn't like "Final Fantasy" with its over-the-top visual carvings and boundary-pushing gameplay. Here, Dragon Quest VIII is the comfy but less attractive affordable footwear. It's the trim without the finesse. It's the vanilla milkshake without the need of additional toppings.

    Hands down the best game in the series as well as one of the best games on PSP. From gorgeous graphics, to break neck speeds, Pure delivers with nary a hiccup.

    SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs appears on PS2 for another tour of duty that is improved graphically and expanded in size to surpass the series’ previous two outings.

    Cramming all the cars, events, options, and even a large soundtrack into one UMD is nothing short of masterful, providing exactly what the PSP needs to grow – games designed to be played in spurts, yet as massive as the same sort of game on the home systems.

    The ultimate culmination of the 6 Madden games released on PlayStation 2; for better or worse.

    There's no denying that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is a twitch shooter. The action is quick and deadly, and when it comes down to a one-on-one shootout, the player with the faster reflexes and better aim has the advantage.
