Kyle Orland: Wow, is it almost August already? The year is flying by. Before you know it, the market will be flooded with an extremely crowded selection of holiday season games, both for current and upcoming platforms. Luckily, there's still a bit more summer left for those who need some time to catch up on this year's releases.

These are the titles that we would recommend without reservation to anyone looking for something new to distract them from their dull and pointless lives. Check out the video for some sample gameplay, then read about what makes each game worthwhile below.
