    I agree with the list in the link. Secondly, avoid GTA IV on the PC as it's buggy as hell!

    Well, for this year I'm waiting for Fight Night Round 4, Tekken 6 and the new Grand Turismo game (not sure if this is out this year). May give COD Modern Warfare 2 a look as well.

    Just not many good titles out there at the mo. Currently playing NBA Live 09 and FIFA 09.

    If anyone wants their behind handed to them on FIFA, let me know :biggrin
