1. Demons Souls.

It was very refreshing and one of the top 10 best games i have played in my entire life.

For me, It may actually be Bioshock. That's one game that delivered the goods, surpassing the crazy amount of hype built up around it, and a game that utilizes one of the most unique environments and design I've ever seen.

A game that surprised me in a (bad) way may be GTA IV. What a letdown. You have the gigantic open world concepts of the earlier generations, nearly perfected on (then) limited hardware, and screwed it up.
I don't know if was because of the driving mechanics, which made the actual act of moving about tedious and frustrating, almost like steering a damned submarine, or the incessant phone calls from your cousin that never ended. The game got so irritating, and that simply was never a factor in earlier games.

I suppose a runner up would be Silent Hill. What the hell? I'm in complete and utter shock that the franchise did little (or nothing) with this generation. All I can remember thinking was, 'Imagine what THIS game (at the time of Silent Hill 2) would look like on next gen hardware. The monsters would be absolutely terrifying"...And nothing came of it. Survival horror is a dying genre, and I suppose it's one of the bigger franchises that disappointed this generation.

Fallout 3. I HATED it when I first played it, but after giving the game two more tries, it quickly became one of my all-time favorite games. I got lost in the Capital Wasteland for a good 200 hours, and I beat all the DLC. I never had a game surprise me quite like that before.
