1. Grand Theft Auto III, Rockstar, 2001
2. The Sims, EA Games, 2000
3. Rock Band, EA Games/MTV Games, 2007
4. BioShock, 2K Games, 2007
5. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Activision, 2007
6. Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar, 2008
7. Katamari Damacy, Namco, 2004
8. The Orange Box, Valve/EA Games, 2007
9. Fallout 3, Bethesda Softworks, 2008
10. Civilization III, Infogrames/Aspyr, 2001
11. Wii Sports, Nintendo, 2006
12. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Rockstar, 2004
13. Fight Night: Round 3, EA Sports, 2006
14. Left 4 Dead, Valve, 2008
15. Ninja Gaiden, Tecmo, 2004
16. FIFA 09, EA Sports, 2008
