Sam & Max Episode 1 : Culture Shock (PC) I never thought I'd actually be grateful to LucasArts for assassinating their sequel to Sam & Max: Freelance Police. Now residing in the capable hands of Telltale Games, the series is setting the standard for episodic content and adventure gaming. Co...

Tetris DS (DS) Nintendo is guilty of shoveling franchises at its fans; did we need another Tetris? Does the NEStalgia design make the game more fun? Probably not. (And I think the pixelated graphics on the top screen detract from the game; I'd rather have the classic Russian graphics and music.) Bu...

Lumines Live! (XBLA) On a big screen with surround sound, Q Entertainment's Lumines Live was easily the most-played game in my library (if you stretch the definition of library to digitally distributed titles). Although I railed against how microtransactions were implemented in this title and stil...

Gears of War (Xbox 360) What the hell just happened? Did we honestly pick Gears of War as the best game of 2006? No, that can't be. The plan was to throw juvenile tantrums and to violently thrash against the machine! To blind the world with an elitist badge and proclaim an innate resistance against...

It's that time of the year ... Because everyone else is doing it, we decided to let YOU the educated PSP Fanboy reader to tell the world (or at least me) what the real best PSP game of 2006 was. The ten selections you see here are provided by Game Rankings: these are the top 10 games, in order, to come out in 2006 (and that includes, for some crazy reason, the Final Fantasy VII movie). Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops was the critic's top choice, earning an 89 average score (making it the 25th best game across all platforms for the year).

I'm sorry if your top choice (::cough:: Gitaroo-Man Lives! ::cough::) didn't make the list. Feel free to leave a comment, glorifying your choice. -->
