Mass Efect 2. Engrossing plot, intruiging characters, and smooth combat. And I'm sure that bounds to change come March.

Why is it people can't read? The topic asked for a single number one, and you already got people giving lists. Seriously. Its simple grammar. And if if you can't make up your mind, then don't answer.

Oh, I'm gonna go with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, because its the only game I'm never gotten rid of since buying it way back when. I still play it to this day.

Right now I am stuck between Gears of War 3 and Portal 2.

Portal 2 had such a tight, refined experience accompanied by enjoyable commentary by GlaDos, Wheatley, and Cave Johnson.

but...

Gears of War 3 did so much more in it's development time, and it did it almost as tight as Portal 2 did. I never broke out laughing over lemons, but I did almost break down into tears.


So...
I guess, if I absolutely had to choose, I would say Gears of War 3. Even if they are pretty even in gameplay and story refinements, then graphics are the deciding factor, and...Gears of War 3 just looks baffling.

Whatever that last overhyped 'triple A' game was. Yeah, that was the best EVER.

Red Dead Redemption. Just thinking about it makes me want to turn off my computer and play it.

Imagine making a good RPG, but massively fail at it. If you can't do that, don't be Peter Molyneux.
