The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Super smash bros brawl Is the best NIntendo fighting game Ever Made, Reached 100 hours game time in 3 months, I used to love melee but, Brawl is just better. Graphics Are Awesome! some of the best of wii, especially with 480P display.

Best Game EVERR, So Good.

2 Half Life 2

Bless Valve for this epic piece. All that can be said.

This is one of reasons the FPS is wht it is today - TotalBeast93

3 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This game was better than part 1 on every aspect. It even had an awesome multiplayer!

Guys, this game, Mortal Kombat Armageddon and Grand Theft Auto IV should be at least in the top 5.
Uncharted 2 is awesome game. Maybe even Perfect! - Magnolia

4 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Truly groundbreaking. Pushed the boundries of today's shooters. It felt like you were in the middle of a movie. Grabs you by the throat and won't let you go.

5 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

It's obvious a 8 or 9 year old must have made this list, otherwise San Andreas would be higher. - JamesNicholls

How is this only number 46? It deserves at least in top 10

6 Super Mario Sunshine
7 Battlefield: 1942

Pretty much the standard of today's multiplayer shooters.

8 Resident Evil 4
9 Metroid Prime
10 Super Mario Galaxy

15 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

33 Rome: Total War

It really gave you the right feeling. To date still one of the best strategy games out there.

34 Assassin's Creed II
