Mario Galaxy 2 – A bit overrated, certainly not among the best games of all time as is suggested by aggregate review sites, but quite good.
Civ 5 -I still like 4 better, but it was time they tried something new. Expansion packs seem to b good, but I haven’t tried them.
Darksiders – Way better than any recent Zelda. I don’t care if it cribbed from a tons of sources, just excellently put together.
Mass Effect 2 – After the mess that was the first Mass Effect, Bioware really cleaned it up and made an awesome game. I just wish it had more character customization.
Starcraft 2 – Also overrated since it is basically a prettier SC1, but the single player campaign was great. I even did the achievements and I never do achievements.
Vanquish – Shows it is still possible to put together an entertaining and somewhat unique action game.
Lara Craft and the Guardian of Light – Awesome coop game, kind of middling single player game.
Split Second, Blur
Red Dead Redemption – If you like a pile of Wild West minigames then this game is for you. Otherwise criminally boring and the action bits are poorly done.
Limbo – Yet another indie platformer.
Bayonetta – A button mashing beat em up. I have no idea where the critical acclaim come from.Bioshock 2 – Entire series is overrated. You can apparently stick a cool setting and philosophical meanderings onto a clunky FPS and acquire numerous plaudits.
No More Heroes 2 – Another dull beat em up.
Just Cause 2 – GTA in the jungle. Kind of a letdown.
Enslaved – Super dull platforming adventure game.
Dead Rising 2 – Consider this a stand in for basically every zombie game.
Alan Wake – Story makes no sense and the combat mechanics are pitiful.
Red Steel 2 – Swordfighting with a Wiimote still hasn’t been done right and this slaps a repetitive and vanilla game around clunky sword controls.
Fable 3 – Another overrated series. The only one I could finish is the first. It would be nice if Molyneux didn’t hype all his games with features that never see the light of day.
Fallout New Vegas – I probably didn’t give this a fair shot as I really hate the Fallout 3 combat system. I will try to give it a new go with some mods soon.
