I guess I will once again put Orange Box in and try to see the appeal. So far I am not getting it but then I have only tried to drudge through HL2.

World in Conflict and HL2 I can kinda understand... rest of the list sucks.... especially wario ware *shudders*

Seriously, it's funny how it lacks consistency with what most gamers and press outlets think. I can't wait till some parent gets to work dirty after spilling their coffee when asking what kind of computer (in $$$ terms) do they need to run Crysis.

Where the hell are Bioshock and Mass Effect? Why is that Mediocre game "Crackdown" doing up there? Assassin's Creed, another sandbox game, is better than it, but I guess you can thank the Halo 3 bundle for that. Furthermore, if Crackdown deserved a mention, then Lost Planet too and with more reason (haters go to hell). By the way, Rockband > any party game on the Wii, and Motorstorm > PGR4 (if this guy is gonna recommend "popular" games, or "games for the family", Motorstorm is definitely more casual oriented than PGR4).

I bet they were simply trying to fill the "game section", if there is one. Morons.
