    Lost Odyssey was disqualified from this list, on the grounds it wasn't released in 2005 / 2006. Final Fantasy XI qualified, but only 1,600 gamers on the site have played it, it was never going to make the cut.

    I have played every one of these except the first Saints Row I guess I need to pick up a cheap copy

    played all of the 5 apart from dead rising, which is in my backlog to start soon. i agree with gears been at the top there...

    dont understand the fuss about viva pinata i just cant get into it and seems hard to get any achievements from it even. i mean what you supposed to do just sit around and wait for animals to come along, coz thats what it looked like to me
    i'm already dead, i'll rise to fall again

    Yep, I'm wrong again. redface

    The release lists I googled all showed Lost Odyssey in 2006, but the site shows Feb. 2008.

    Also, there's the fact that FF XI sits at a lowly 66 on Metacritic.

    I appear to own every game on this list and have so far only finished two (Oblivion & Condemned) and even those are not finished in a 100% completion sense! Just more proof to me that I wont need to jump to the next generation for about a decade!

    Just throwing this out there: I think we need a separate list for Arcade titles. Even if it's only two or three per year.

    Yep, sure does. I've never been so moved by a video game trailer/commercial.

    Hello?!? You forgot the dishonorable mention of Sonic 06?

    I still love that game but even I know when to tuck blue tail and spin away.

    Back on topic--Jesus, EVERYONE played Viva Pinata NONSTOP. And then they had that show!

    Wait, n...no one remembers all that?

    I would definitely put Hitman Blood Money on that list, couldn't say a bad word about that game. Splinter Cell Double Agent was a top game as well.

    Gears of War for sure. When I got my 360 this and CoD 4 was all I played.

    FFXI shouldnt have qualified seeing how it was on PC/PS2 way before Xbox 360 (Try 2003)

    I've loved the first Gears Of War, it was the game that started my love for the franchise. I still have yet to play Oblivion, but Im looking forward to play it. I put so many hours into Dead Rising trying to get all the achievements, its a frustrating but fun game.
