2 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

What's this doing NOT at the top spot? - HeavyDonkeyKong

One of the best zelda games

This should be top

While it's currently my least favorite 3D Zelda, It's fantastic and a great swan song to the GCN and a starter for the Wii.

3 Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

I love all Grand Theft Auto so much - Magnolia

This game is from 2005

Ok, good enough to be on 3rd position

4 New Super Mario Bros.

Where is Roblox at on this list

This re-invented the dormant 2D platforming giant. - marmalade_skies

5 Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

One of the greatest Mortal Kombat games ever - superb story, graphics, combos, characters, fights, konquest mode, speep, brutality - Magnolia

6 Okami

My picks for 06

Gears of War
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion

New Super Mario Bros.

Daxter - marmalade_skies

7 Wii Sports

What other modern game sold at least 20 million consoles by itself? - marmalade_skies

Wii storts are the best I still play them

I love it. I give it a 10 out of 10. Also I’m a pro at all the sports except golf

8 Gears of War

As a die-hard Zelda fan, I have to admit that Gears of War bested it. It just felt like something totally new. Small-team based third person shooter with lots of heft to it, balanced gameplay and visuals that beat anything on the PC that year. - marmalade_skies

9 Kingdom Hearts II

When this competes with the best games of all time? Glad it's in top ten but it's not high enough!

Oh crap, how did this evade the top 20? - marmalade_skies

10 Pokemon Diamond/Pearl

I love this game so much!

It's a great Pokémon Game with new evolutions for Old Pokémon and likeable characters

The Contenders

11 Mother 3
12 Tomb Raider: Legend

Many many hours spent playing this game as a kid. One of a kind.

14 Dead Rising
15 Destroy All Humans! 2
16 Viva Pinata
17 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter
18 Guitar Hero II

22 Battlefield 2142
23 Company of Heroes
24 Xenosaga Episode III
25 X-Men: The Official Game
26 Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

This game was my childhood I always loved marvel and this was one of my favorite games because this is like the only game where I can play as my favorite marvel hero moon knight

27 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
28 Final Fantasy XII
29 Tetris DS
30 NHL 07

It's not innovative, but it has great visuals and it's a fun to play thru. - marmalade_skies

32 NBA 07

42 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

More like worst game of 2006 - marmalade_skies

43 Prey
44 The Godfather

I sunk lots of hours into this game. The Grand Theft Auto formula is done well with the license tie-in, the police bribing system, system extortion, fueds against mafias and so on - marmalade_skies

45 FIFA 07
46 1701 A.D.
47 Sonic the Hedgehog - Xbox 360
48 Kirby: Squeak Squad
