Final Fantasy XII barely edges out Dead Rising for my vote.

I have heard so many mixed things with that game....I heard some hardcore FF fans hate it while others love it.....

Change is scary. The lack of turn-based combat is an off-putting feature to a lot of the old school fans, I think. I'm in a couple hours and I've been loving every minute of it, though. Embrace the change! :^)

Shin Megamim Tensei: Devil Summoner was my favorite.
Dead Rising is an easy second.
Gears of War was pretty damned fun too.

PONG!


I'll have to cast my vote for Guitar Hero 2. It's the most addicting game I've played in a while. (Guitar Hero I for that matter but I got both all together for the kids for Christmas. It's great when your kids get old enough to be able to enjoy their gifts as much as they do!)
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

There were a lot of great games for '06. But the top games were: Gears of War, Guitar Hero 2, Zelda, FF 12, Oblivion, WoW: Buring Crusade. So lets talk about each.

Gears of War was amazing. It is definitly the best game on the 360, and it has smashed all Xbox records (including the records Halo set). The multiplayer is a little lack (only 8 people per game).

Guitar Hero 2 didn't change much except the different things you can do on multiplayer and new songs.

Zelda was also amazing. But when it comes down to it, TP is just a GameCube port with the Wii motions.

FF 12 gave us a new fighing mechanics for that series. I felt it was well done. In the end though, I didn't feel satisfied.

Oblivion is a masterpiece. From the quests to the world itself, almost every aspect of this game is perfect.

And finally, WoW: Buring Crusade. So what do you when you've created the most successful MMO of all time? Change nothing, which is exactly what Blizzard did. They gave us two new races, quests, and now flying mounts, but the gameplay never changed (SW: Galaxies should take note of this). Now with over 8.5 million players, its obvious that it is going to be a very long time before we see the end of WoW.


So in the end, my vote is for Buring Crusade.
Crow: Well believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

I would have to go for Oblivion most definatly.  It is the only Elder Scrolls RPG that i have really gotten into and that I can actually understand (maybe that is because im a little older and wiser) and it just is something that i wish i could play and do everything. Search the whole area and go into each dungon and do each quest. And hey the achievement points are a bonus on the 360.  I may change my vote once i get guitar hero II on the 360 (no wait its 2007)......but anywho that is what i think was the best. Gears of War gets 2nd place for me. followed by Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter

Zelda TP for the Wii is my top pick, with Guitar Hero 2 in second and Final Fantasy 12 in third.  If I had a 360, it might be very different, but meh.  WoW BC might been in place of Final Fantasy 12 since there were a number of changes while keeping it balanced, but I find CoH more enjoyable.

Hidden gem pick:  Sam and Max Ep 1 and 2.

My vote lies with Gears of War, nothing beats cutting someone in half with the chainsaw online.  My other choices would have to be Dead Rising and Neverwinter Nights 2.  I liked FFXII, but I could only play it for an hour at a time before I got sick of it.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great game.  The cutscenes and boss fights were great, but some of the dungeons and world areas were an awful grind, and I already pay 15 a month to kill the same monsters over and over again.

I'd pick the Nintendo DS.  It's kicked the PSP's ass in terms of sales and game quality.
