Biggest Week in Gaming: 17 Must-have Titles

As the holiday shopping season careens ever closer, the video game release schedule gets ever more crowded. This week sees the frenzy reach its pinnacle, as a mind-bending (not to mention wallet -tormenting) set of first-class games hits the streets. Unless you're a millionaire with nothing to do except play video games (in which case feel free to invite us over - we'll bring the drinks), you'll never have time to check them all out yourself, so here's a summary of every big name appearing on shelves this week.

You'll be spoilt for choice. Every platform gets its share of love, from the most powerful of gaming PCs to the lowliest of portable systems. Just about every genre has its spotlight, too, so no matter what you're into, from questionably-mustachioed plumbers flying through space to big fat guys pretending to hit each other, there's a triple-A game dropping this week that'll put a grin on your face.

Biggest indeed. It's raining AAA games. Gotta buy my PS3 and Wii soon.

Yea it's deffinatly an awesome good time seems that the majority of games just out or coming out are top shelf ^^ Good time's but horrible for the pocketbook. I think for the first half of November I spent 500 on games.... yep just the first half of one month... that kind of hurt but I certainly have a nice selection ^^

Yep, I definitely need these three:
Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? (DS, PC) [62 in its first review]
Beowulf (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) [currently averaging a 45 on metacritic]
Sim City Societies (PC) [currently averaging a 66 on metacritic]

Always trust Yahoo video games.
