Arkham Asylum: 3D Metroid with Batman stuck on an island with all our favorite villains, how could this fail?
Resident Evil 5 – I had a lot of fun playing this twice coop.
Shadow Complex – Short but good Metroid clone.
New Super Mario Bros Wii – Love me 2D Mario.
Fight Night Round 4 – Entire series is really well done.
Dawn of War 2- This and all xpacks are among the few decent RTS games that have come out recently.
Defense Grid – For my money, the best tower defense out there.
Devil Survivor – I am a sucker for tactical RPGs.
Prototype – Much better than Infamous, still got a bit repetitive.
Brutal Legend – Surprisingly good, but overstays its welcome.
House of the Dead Overkill, Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles -Good coop gun games.
Assassin’ Creed 2 – This stands in for the entire series except the first. They never managed to move on from the first game; instead repeating the same awful free running and combat systems and rarely offering up anything like an assassin game and then holding it all together with a dumb nonsensical plot right out of a Dan Brown novel.
Left4Dead 2 – Still ugly and still only good coop.
Infamous -Making a poor GTA clone with superpowers does not a good game make.
Borderlands – A really slow placed FPS Diablo clone, count me out.
Dragon Age Origins: Generic setting combined with a generic and straightforward plot make for an unengaging RPG. It also had some grindy areas (like the Deep Roads) and opaque combat mechanics. Merely average, which isn’t acceptable from Bioware.
