The Free-Flow-Combat system with 3D enabled gameplay and almost the entire voice cast from the original Animated Series makes this fanboy jittery with glee. One of the best 3rd person games I've ever played.

Kaizen says:

There's a reason why Blizzard is one of the most dominant game developers in the games industry; They have yet to make a bad game, and as usual SC2 is top notch.

Chaotyx says:

Don't fix it if it ain't broke. So here we are, StarCraft version 2.0, the same fun gameplay with new pretty visuals, a few new units and a single player storyline that follows in the same epic vein of it's predecessor.

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:

This is a game you buy for the online experience. Addictive RPG style upgrading and hectic combat situations make this a winner in my books.

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:

The great thing about war games is that they're all fun regardless of just how many franchises are pumping 'em out.

The best Civilization game ever made. I thought this game was a cakewalk and/or I was just insanely good until I put it on medium mode and got my ass handed to me in the first 10 minutes.

Add Napoleon: Total War to my Wishlist

Kaizen says:

Similar to Civilization, but allows you to micromanage and simulate the battles. Nothing is more fun than watching your enemies rout as you charge their last remaining troops down with your calvary.

Chaotyx says:

Just like Civ5, Napoleon: Total War is easily capable and appropriately defined by use of the word epic.

This was the first official 3D Vision game released to the market. If you think you've become too de-sensitized to zombie games and are thrilled with the idea of realistic looking zombies jumping out of your monitor to tear your face off, you'll like this game. As with most of the Res games, this one doesn't disappoint.

I have accepted the fact that this is not Resident Evil 4. Once that's out of the way it's a pretty sweet game.

This game is wayyy under-rated, from the moment I booted this game up, I knew Cryptic Studios was onto something a little out of the ordinary and different, in a good way!
I bought this game on release back in Feb. 2010, check out my first impressions video review.

STO is one of the best MMOs I've ever played. If you're a fan of any of the shows odds are you'll love this game. Even if you're not a fan the style of gameplay is a refreshing experience in an otherwise sated MMO market.
