Best Video Games of 2005

Best year so far.  My memory is getting fuzzy so I skipped a few games.

Best:

Civilization 4 – Still the bar for civ games.

GTA San Andreas – Ambitious, but probably overly.

Freedom Force vs the Third Reich – Sadly ignored series of games.

KotoR 2 – Just as good if not better than the first.

Honorable Mention:

Resident Evil 4 – First game in the series I liked and it was the first mostly action game.

Forza Motorsport, Gran Turismo 4

God of War

Splinter Cell – Whole series is good, consider all of them Honorable Mentions

Psychonauts – A bit overrated, but quirky and fun.

Jade Empire – If only the combat were as cool as in early builds.

FEAR – Goofy plot, but fun FPS.

Half Life 2 – I never got into HL1’s single player, but this was adequate.

Prince of Persia Two Thrones

Indigo Prophecy – Trippy supernatural story wrapped in a decent adventure game.  A bit too many quick time events though

Fire Emblem Sacred Stones

Mario and Luigi Partners in Time

Hearts of Iron 2

Darwinia

Sly 3: All around good series of games.

Overrated:

Doom 3 – Honestly didn’t see what the big deal was.

Quake 4 – Same as above.

Fire Emblem Path of Radiance: Worst of recent Fire Emblem games.
