2007 is perhaps my favorite. Halo 3 and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock are my favorite games of 2007. I tried Assassin's Creed, I kind of liked it but I wasn't really interested and I also tried Call of Duty 4, but it made me so frustrated I stopped playing it and went back to Halo 3 (but I got into the CoD series after MW2).
I2007 revolutionized video games for me and I have been playing video games since I was very little during the 4th and 5th generations (SNES, Genesis, and GBC).
2011 for me, with Batman AC and Skyrim, not to mention Saints Row the Third etc. 'twas a good year --- Intell 8088 @ 7.14Mhz | 640K RAM | TCGA 16 Color graphics | TWO 5.25" 640K Floppy drives | 10MB Hard disk 3DS FC: 0903-4184-6816
For me it has to be 2010. It had three of my favorite games this gen, Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption and Fallout New Vegas. Adding also Just Cause 2, Darksiders and Pokemon HG/SS made it that much better --- Cavaliers/Browns/Indians
2006 because it was just after launch Perfect Dark Zero was the first next gen game I played with CoD 2 and Gears of War came out in the fall.
2010 is an honorable mention because of Perfect Dark XBLA, other than that this generation Gears, the walking dead and a few others I just haven't bothered with games as seem to get bored of them. Although getting a PS3 for Christmas I have had more fun than I have had in a long time with Wii or 360. The Uncharted games are pretty damn good and I have a number of others. --- www.itstimetosplit.com
