In a year filled with promise and heavy hitters, which games rank the highest?
Few years in the history of the game industry look as promising as 2007. It's a perfect storm. It's the first full year of two new consoles, PlayStation 3 and Wii, which means that developers are over the hump of the launch, and they can take more time to create, develop and get into their respective systems.
But it's the second complete year for developers to take advantage of Microsoft's complex but not difficult-to-develop-for Xbox 360. That means they have been over the hump, and they are all well into the second or even third wave of Xbox 360 games. That means no more ports from current gen systems. Not more previous gen hold-overs, like many of EA's early 2006 games were. This year we get fresh new content created specifically for this brand new system.
