DJ hero is in the mid 80's on review scores, pretty much a flop when combined with sales.

swap borderlands with uncharted2 and i can pretty much agree with the list.

Rap DJin'g is pretty niche as far as niche goes. It's not like everyone is dying to spin on a turntable to some pretty god awful music (sorry if you like that stuff, just not my bag). I thought the idea was pretty neat, but I just don't think there is a market in it.

- Scribblenauts
+ inFAMOUS

Not sure ODST or New Super Mario Bros. Wii should be up there. Also, I think the ordering is a little weird. Overall not bad.

It wasn't rap. It was mash-ups.

I think MW2 is in the right spot, but Batman is way overated imo. I think AC2 is #2 then borderlands at #3. This is based on my FUN factor and not based on graphics. UC2 proabably in around #5 or so maybe. To me its just graphics. I don't care much for the game itself. Just don't feel anything exciting about it. I think AC2 blows it away as far as fun and the storyline. YOu actually can learn some history from it. Borderlands is just freaking really fun, especially when playing with 3 other people. I laugh so hard when the beserker goes off grunting. LOL.

MW2, well I spent 2 days online playhing it. So I say it deserves it. Its the online game of the decade/generation.

What the fuck? Uncharted 2 should be a #1 I'm sorry that list is crazy talk. MW2 should be at #2.. it's still rinse and repeat COD ( though that's not a bad thing, but its not very epic ).

Also Halo shouldn't even be on that list.

The more I think about it the harder it is to rate them. So many games with so many different trates. AC2 has the best story for a game by far this year. MW2 has the best online shooter for the year. Borderlands has the funniest and best RPG/Shooter this year and I love the art style of the game. The loading screens are funny along with claptrap.

You notice I don't rate the best graphics up in the list. Graphics don't make it a great game. Just like a movie. You can have the prettiest looking film, but the movie itself can be total crap.(Transformers2).
