Kaizen says:

Infamous is totally awesome; in fact I was so addicted to it that I ended up beating it after playing it straight for 2 days. Infamous 2 is  just around the corner so this is a must buy for anyone who hasn't played it already.

Chaotyx says:

Pretty epic and well done game for a sandbox! It's like Spiderman sans web and tights.

System: PS3, Xbox360

Description:

Red Dead Redemption is an open-world, third-person, action-adventure game set at the tail end of the American West West era. Action takes place in the first few years of the twentieth century and revolves around the choices that the protagonist, former outlaw John Marston, is forced to make due to his blemished past.

Add Red Dead Redemption to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

I gotta be honest with you, I had a hard time following the storyline in RDR, but that's mainly because there's so much to do! You can go gamble in shady saloons, start fights with literally anyone (even hookers), and basically unleash any nerd range you've had pent up in a matter of minutes. Now I'm not saying that I recommend you do those things, no no no, but let's face it, you will anyway. It's fun! This game has tons of replay value and hence I must award it the title of being a "must play".

Chaotyx says:

I loved the original PS2 game and now keep this as my mistress. Not only is this a solid all around good game, but it's basically my new Postal 2. Yes, it's Grand Theft Auto with horses, but take my word that's not a bad thing. Now instead of wrecking your car after gunning down some folk of questionable taste, you can instead ride your horse off a cliff after... then skin it. What the heck's wrong with you?! A-hem, ya, it's a pretty rad game for story play or just mindless sandbox fun.

Add Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

I haven't played it yet, but it qualifies as another game I will be picking up this holiday season. Zombies + Red Dead Redemption = Win.

Chaotyx says:

I love the fact that zombies have gotten so big over the past few years. I also have yet to try this but the Red Dead formula is pretty tight, I can only imagine what throwing a horde of zombies in the mix will do. I wonder if you can skin them after?...

God of War 3

Buy God of War 3 Now from Amazon

System: PS3

Description:

God of War III is a single player action game, exclusive to the PlayStation 3, and the final installment of the God of War trilogy.

Containing signature and addictive God of War gameplay — a combination of over-the-top action combat, exploration and puzzle-solving — along with an engrossing mythologically inspired storyline and a selection of new weapons and a new weapons system, it is a fitting conclusion to the much praised God of War franchise.

Add God of War 3 to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

If you've ever played Heavenly Sword, Indigo Prophecy or the great "Heavy Rain", you'll feel right at home with the controls. It's a great test of reaction time and image association and overall, God of War 3 is a great game.

Chaotyx says:

How do you make a game epic? Like, really epic? Battle freaking Gods. A slash-em-up with boss battles of mammoth proportions and shiny pretty graphics. A must play for fans of the genre or series.

Add Heavy Rain to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

One of the best games ever made. Heavy Rain is a truly unique, incredible and immersive experience. It's like you're in a movie but then you forget it's a movie and it feels like real life.

Chaotyx says:

I never thought I'd see a game like Indigo Prophecy again, which is truly a fantastic and addicting game. This time around we go less Matrix and more Dexter. A beautifully crafted intertwining story with interesting characters and the reaction based control scheme I know and love. Plus, it's now Playstation Move compatible!

Buy Burnout Paradise Now

Burnout Paradise

Buy Burnout Paradise Now from Amazon

System: PC, PS3, Xbox360

Description:

In Burnout Paradise players are treated to a rarity in the video games universe: a complete reinvention of an established franchise that equals, if not betters any of the previous games in the series. Yes, this is a large claim, but one that can be explained in a single phrase: Next-Gen Freedom.

Add Burnout Paradise to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

Another game that has a solid foundation, but I find myself doing nothing but crashing the cars because the crashes are so freakin Epic. Download the demo and see what I mean. Either way, it's a really solid racing game, and the realistic damage is a nice change from the standard cookie-cutter "hit a lamp post at 90MPH and bounce off unscathed" scenario.

Chaotyx says:

Oddly enough the most enjoyable racing game I've played on the PS3. Why, upon reflection, is actually quite clear to me now; it's a sandbox racer! Don't feel like racing? Then just cruise around Paradise and make some wicked and ludicrous jumps, or see just how fast you can go to make a ridiculous crash to revel over in the slow-motion crash cam replay.

Buy RockBand 3 Now from Amazon

System: DS. PS3, Wii, Xbox360

Description:

Rock Band 3 is the third main release in the iconic video game series that challenges gamers to live out their Rock & Roll fantasies together in a band situation, both locally and online.

The game features an ever expanding song list from every era of Rock & Roll history, easy to pick up yet challenging addictive Note Highway gameplay, compatibility with earlier releases in the series and all platform-specific instrument controllers including most Guitar Hero controllers, extreme in-game character and band customization, and a slew of new features.

These new features include: new setlist search functionality, the addition of 3-part harmonies and a keyboard peripheral and expanded play modes, including the advanced Pro Mode.

Add RockBand 3 to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

My interest in this series has been taken to new level. I knew a few years ago that if Harmonix taught people how to play real instruments in RockBand, they would be able to maintain the game's popularity and even more importantly, stay one step ahead of their competition. Well folks, it's here. If you play RockBand 3 on expert-pro mode you can now impress your family and friends and rock out on that piano or guitar for real.

Chaotyx says:

And drums! I'm an avid lover of the Rock Band series and drove across the border just to get my hands on my peripherals. I'm already dedicated to the series, but honestly, the addition of Pro-Mode with real instruments should make any rhythm game lover convert. The tracklist is solid and quite varied with tons of my favorites, plus with over 2000 songs now available it's the perfect party game.

Add Uncharted 2: Among Thieves to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

This game is so much better than it's predecessor it's not even funny. That's saying a lot because the original Uncharted was a solid game in it's own right, but this is just a whole new experience. This was the first video review we ever did but the video ended up getting locked out for many lame reasons so it never got much exposure. Check out our Uncharted 2 Review on Youtube.

Chaotyx says:

You had me at sarcastic hero. But seriously, the game is damn sweet and pretty much a must play for PS3 owners. Wonderful graphics, fun gameplay and our douchebag protagonist.

Add Battlefield Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

I’ve been playing this a ton lately. It’s one of the best Battlefield games of all time and much like its younger brother, Battlefield Bad Company, BFBC2 has a great single-player story. This game got really fun for me the second I jumped into a tank and drove it through the main floor of a building which in turn caused it fall down and bury my enemies inside. Epic Win.

Chaotyx says:

A super addicting multiplayer experience with RPG elements. The controls are surprisingly smooth given this is a first person shooter (which I tend to avoid on consoles) but it was quite easy to pick up and go with little to no adjustment. The single player is pretty good, but the multiplayer is just off-the-charts intense.

Kaizen says:

First there was “Medal of Honor”, then, Underground, then Allied Assault, Frontline, Rising Sun..Pacific Assault was in there somewhere too. What number is this one? I guess even the developer couldn’t keep track and decided to name the series exactly the same as the first game. Don’t let the title fool you though, this isn’t the MOH from 1999. The graphics are top notch and the game is pretty fun too

Chaotyx says:

Medal of Honor knows how to make a war game, which is why this is right up on my list with Black Ops for must-play games before the year ends

Chaotyx says:

One of the (if not the) best game I played all year. It's dark and gritty, it's the voice cast from my favorite animated series growing up, and it's combat system is seamlessly smooth. This is, I feel, the must play title of the year for PS3 owners.
