Can't agree with these choices... Im no WoW fan but the game isn't a hack and slash. Supreme Commander units looked great upclose, learn to control your camera. I also found the AI pretty dam good but honestly, no RTS ever had great AI, the main focus for RTS is MP play. Bioshock was great all around, did it deserve the high scores it got... not as high but it was a 9.0+ game easily, lots of polish.

Crysis and Crysis MP. All I've been hearing about is how great Crysis is, to me it was just another shooter with pretty graphics. The gameplay was nothing new and quite frankly I didn't like it. I think the single player campaign is going to suck as well. I don't know why people are so excited.

Putting COD as overrated is atrocious. COD is and was one of the best MP games available at the time. If you didn't play MP then you just don't know. It takes actual skill to be good at that game which is more than I can say for others.

I took a test and it came back 74% positive.

I am a true gamer.

I'd say Half-Life 2. It's certainly not a bad game, and I'm partially to blame for buying into the hype, but it's overall pretty mediocre in my opinion. I even tried replaying it about a year ago to rule out the initial disappointment, but it's the same. I think my main issue was that there was too much grind.

I loved Episode 1 though and I'm hopeful for Ep.2.

Bioshock might also end up as a contender; I loved the demo but after a couple of hours of playing the full version I sort of just lost the inclination to play any further. Coupled with a few audio related technical issues, I'm still waiting a bit to see if there's a fix before I finish it.

Edit: The whole Halo phenomenon somehow passed me by too. They're fine games, and certainly entertaining enough, but how they're being treated as some epic sagas is something that I just don't get. Like Bioshock and the Matrix movies, the storyline strikes me as something that is only 'deep' if you've never opened a book in your life. Edit 2: The same applies to HL2 when I think about it.
