    In my opinion, Grand Theft Auto IV is the best game of this generation, thus far, and one of the best games ever made.

    However, despite these shortcomings, it's nearly impossible not to celebrate the exceptional design that backbones Galaxy. This encompasses everything from the controls to the level design to the music – not to mention everything unconventional or traditional in between.

    Super Mario Galaxy was a triumph, but the sequel manages to take things to a new level of excellence by adding new material as well as fixing elements that, in hindsight, did not appear to be broken.

    Weighing in with 13 maps, 26+ game modes, and a slew of adjustable options, Halo is a veritable cornucopia of multiplayer goodness. Add System Link Support to the fray, and you're looking all night frag-filled benders.

    Uncharted 2 can't come with enough rave recommendations. This game has something for everybody, no questions asked.

    The hit zone-based targeting system, for example, makes anything else in the genre seem obsolete and primitive. It's that sophisticated.

    Every component of the Orange Box stands as a unique triumph in modern game design and serves as powerful representation of what's possible when you have one of the most talented and dedicated developers in the industry working at the top of their game.

    The game fulfills the obvious but unfulfilled potential of its predecessor in grand fashion, with a bigger adventure, a richer universe to explore, more visceral combat, and conversation mechanics that actually make character development a captivating piece of the experience.

    Over 40 to 50 hours of gameplay for your first time through. Every hour features challenging, rewarding, fun and entertaining gameplay. Excellent dungeon design and memorable locales.

    This is perhaps the greatest ever chapter in the Zelda series. It manages to be absolutely revolutionary and yet still familiar.

    GTA Double Pack is a "desert island" type of game that you can play for ten minutes to ten hours, regardless of how long you've owned it.

    LBP is one of the most important games to be released this decade. A tall order with the hype machine running overtime for the game but the way it reinvents how video games are played is sure to have lasting effects indefinitely. It is impossible not to fall in love with all the charm LBP oozes.

    One of the best console first-person shooters ever made, with multiplayer that is way ahead of anything else on any console.

    Twilight Princess is not as revolutionary as "Ocarina of Time." It doesn't reinvent a 2D classic as a 3D one. It doesn't revolutionize the adventure genre. Instead, it takes everything about the Zelda universe and improves upon it. It is bigger, and it is better. But it’s not new. It is a great evolution of the loved series.

    The gameplay is fresh, exciting, and surprisingly nuanced, the graphics are gorgeous both technically and artistically, and the online play is incredibly addictive. Unquestionably the best game on the Xbox 360, a major contender for game of the year, and quite possibly the game that will forever define the Xbox 360.

    The game is just too big to elaborate on in its entirety, and this is a game that really has to be experienced, not just read about. Want to know what to expect? You can expect a massive game that is very open.

    Call of Duty 4 is Infinity Ward's best game to date, the best military shooter ever made, and one of the best games of the year. If you are not a fan of first-person shooters, this game will make you rethink your position.

    Halo 3 is an excellent first-person shooter, and with it, Bungie ends its trilogy on a strong note.

    Street Fighter IV is the culmination of two decades of learning what works, correcting what does not, making good things better, and discarding baffling missteps.

    If you've played the previous games, you'll be impressed. But if it's your first entry in the series, then you'll be enthralled.

    The videogame equivalent of Hurricane Ivan; everyone that has come into contact with it has either been stuck with an immense sense of awe, or had their life changed in a significant manner.

    The addition of the masterful Spec-Ops modes goes a long way to making up for the uneven campaign though, and the competitive multiplayer is as addictive as expected.

    Bottom line: Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a must-purchase for every single Wii owner. If you own a Wii, you have to own this game.

    The single-player campaign, while outstanding, is simply eclipsed by what is the most innovative and well-balanced online experience out there.
