Let me guess how long it will be before PS3 fanboys start accusing MSNBC of being Xbots since there aren't any PS3 exclusive titles in this list...

Those titles are not MSNBC's or the editors' pick. They were voted in by the readers.

Ratchet & Clank Future, Uncharted and other PS3 exclusives were in the first round... obviously they didn't get enough votes to make to the final round.

So sure enough, even if there was a first round of votes, it's not like there was thousands and thousands of PS3 fans reading this site...

But, I have to admit that I'm amazed that a few Wii exclusive titles made the list... I guess it's those Wii60 guys : )

How on earth did Big Brain acadamy and Madden NFL 08 get on that list when the likes of Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Metriod prime and the orange box didn't

YOU may not like those games, but apparently there are thousands of people out there who do and voted for them.

As many as PS3 fanboys we have in here and forums, you are still really in the minority when you go out into the bigger gaming population.

Stick to what you're good at round peg....just keep spending 24 hours a day submitting those stories...while the rest of us go to our jobs and lives ands such.

WTF are Brain Academy, PGR4 and Lego Star Wars doing there?

At least 2 of 2007's best games have highest number votes so far (COD4 and BioShock). Wish ME had more and also, AC was there.

They picked what they thought to be the best games of 2007 from each genre.

* Best sports games of 2007
* Best racing games of 2007
* Best casual games of 2007
* Best family games of 2007
* Best music games of 2007
* Best handheld games of 2007
* Best role-playing games of 2007
* Best action-adventure games of 2007
* Best shooters of 2007

So that's why Lego's and stuff is on there. Sadly, the only game on that list that I have played is Guitar Hero III. I'm think about buying COD4 today.

Nice to see Halo off the list.
