    I'm gonna go with Gears of War since its either that or Assassin's Creed, and I just can't give it to AC.

    I only got back into gaming near the end of the year so I guess I'll have to go with Mass Effect.

    Bioshock. Closely followed by Crackdown. Closely followed by Resident Evil 4 on the Wii (wiimote shooting FTW).

    I was a few years late on this one but I finally got around to play Beyond Good and Evil. It was awesome.

    WHERE IS THE LOVE FOR MASS FUDGING EFFECT?!?

    Seriously. Rock Band kicked ass, but NOTHING has engrossed me this year like Mass Effect. Bioware continues to amaze.

    I haven't been this into a single player game (multiple multiple multiple playthroughs!) since Knights of the Old Republic.

    Voice Acting? Top notch.
    Graphics? Awesome.
    Gameplay (most important): Amazingly awesome, and this coming from someone who HATES console shooters!

    Shepard owns. Bring on ME 2 and 3!

    If I had Mass Effect then I'd probably agree with you.

    Agreed.

    This got some hype but seems to have falled in the shadows of bigger hype machines. Either way, if you haven't tried it, and you like games, give it a chance. If you have tried it and didn't like it... well... play other things.

    I had no reservations for starting a second time through, and if my 360 didn't get the RROD during the first Beta Prime area, I'd hope to be level 60 now.

    Mass Effect by far.

    That isn't to say there haven't been some other gems this year (err well, 2007) however. Bioshock (superior PC version ;) ), God of War II, Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, Justice For All, Trials and Tribulations, Hotel Dusk, etc...just Mass Effect was everything I wanted it to be..for the most part anyways (the UCW left a bit to be desired sadly, but meh..main quest was solid enough with some good sidequests as well).

    07 was a great year.
