2 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

3 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

4 Kingdom Hearts II

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

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

7 Resident Evil 4

It's awesome, it's the best game ever, it's so addicting with a great story line, it keeps me on the x-box for hours

Ubisoft tried something new, and it blew everyone away.

36 Medal of Honor: Airborne
37 Mario Kart Double Dash
38 Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2
39 Assassin's Creed II

Amazing game with great graphics and storyline.

50 Rome: Total War

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