Call of duty

Call of duty is way better than crysis just b/c of great online support. Btw its the British SAS, not SOS....SOS is the signal generally used by the elite French army. Also MOA airborne is just about the worst game i've ever seen...erase and replace w/ the orange box...

Manhunt, Bioshock...and the rest...all of them has lots of violence and disturbing scenes. And as someone allready mentioned where's Mario Galaxy? And Portal, the one and only true innovative game-title of this year....are you sponsered by XBOX? or haven't tried anything else. Crappy list....better next year

Forgot one!!!

I can't believe that The Witcher was left out. It is by far one of the very BEST RPGs I've ever played, and I've been playing since the 80s. The graphics, the storyline, the new combat system (which some people didn't love, but I did), the adult themes that were not dumbed down to appease the delicate sensibilities of 10 year old gamers, choices that matter and really effect the storyline (even chapters later!)... it is by far one of the best. The replayability is amazing, too. Its worth actually spending money on. Coming from me, that's a major complement. hehe

Yeah, wonderful job only

Yeah, wonderful job only mentioning Xbox games. Sell-out.

Why even bother mentioning Kane and Lynch? Eidos is the company that made it 100% clear that game mags are 100% influenced by money. Look up the whole Gamespot scandal. Kane and Lynch is a piece of crap, so it's no wonder Eidos pressed so hard to get it marketed as a "good" game...if you value freedom of speech, boycott it!

Uh just because Mario Galaxy

Uh just because Mario Galaxy isnt online doesnt mean it has limited replayability. Lets see how quickly you can find all 120 (121 with Luigi) stars without using a guide.

Did you even play half of these games? Manhunt was awful and Kane was fun for about 10 minutes.

You need to realize that a game doesnt have to be the prettiest game on the market to be fun. Nintendo makes the best games on the market. Period. Games shouldnt be about how shiny they are, or how realistic they are. They should be fun. Nintendo games are fun. And to be stupid enough to say "The fact of the matter is that Nintendo has never made a game on the same level of quality as any of the ten games in this list." shows that you know nothing about what you are writing about. The quality of Mario Galaxy is there. The controls are flawless, the ideas in the game are amazing and the sound track is beautiful. So what if it isnt photo-realistic in terms of graphics? Its a fun game.

Call of Duty was a great game (soooo much better than Halo 3 what a f'n disappointment). But Mario Galaxys should be right there with it.
