2007 is shaping up to be a big year for gaming. New consoles, more powerful hardware, and loads of promising titles are set to grace the fine year of ought-seven. Here are some of the top choices, hand-picked by our own game-hungry CNET editors.
although I fail to see why the oblivion expansion is there, not that it's not good, it's just not a full new game.
surprised no GTA 4.
pretty good line up like you say ... I dont really care much for the sports titles but everything else looks good... But one thing the mgs comments "MGS 2 made people go out and buy a ps2" I didnt really get that one seeing as how I played it on my xbox...True no gta4 but then again Heavenly Sword wasnt their as well.
but i know for a fact san andreas sold a sh*t load of PS2s. alan wake and mass effect are about equal for me. i doubt alan wake will actually make it this year though.

No GTA 4. The put Alan Wake before Mass Effect. But over all a good list.
Where's heavenly sword? Where's LAIR? Both of those games are higher on my to get list then Motorstorm and definately higher then the sports games. Although, I will get motorstorm for sure. LOL ... if rumors are true, and Killzone is released any time this year, the list is going to need some remaking. I doubt it's true though. Bioshock does look amazing.
Not sure why this was linked here so late. That list is probably a month old. Like you said, no Lair, No Heavenly Sword. I'm on CNET more than I'm on hear because they've got great reviews on tv's and receivers (not the very expensive ones) but I saw this list some time ago.
yea their are some missing titles and he seems slanted towards the Wii and DS but overall pretty much the greatest games this year are in their...
when tiger woods for the wii is up there when titles that should easily be on top of the list like Killzone 2, GTA, and metroid arent up there.
We no virually _nothing_ about this game at this point. No journalist has played even an alpha build of this game. Sure, it may be great, but so could any other game that we know so little about. Beyond the hype, there is no logical reason for this game to be on the top 20 list _yet_.
No God of War 2 (unless he's specifically focusing on next-gen games) and no Assassin's Creed on there either. 2 titles that I'd think would be in the top 20 of a lot of people.
no, army of 2,lair,heavenly sword,UT3, what the heck is going on, unless thats that person own personall list.
They missed Assassins Creed , GTA 4 and is RE5 in 08 and Metriod Prime 3 in my opinion ? You can also make a case for Killzone 2 as Sony has hyped it from E3 2005.
should have been numeral uno!
is wrong wit this list.
seeing as how Mass Effect was so far towards the end, and really... no GTA4 or Heavenly Sword? WTF? Granted, I only just realized how much I'm excited for Heavenly Sword and we know nothing about GTA4 except the release date, but there were enough generic sports titles that could've been bumped off for those two.
Looks like a "here is what our guys are looking forward too" list. Regardless of whether or not YOUR pet game is on that list, '07 is going to be an awesome year.
