My Top 5 Game Wishlist

5. Black:

Black is an all-out action Convert game. It appears that every single thing in this game can be destroyed in one way or another, as Criterion's motto for this game is, "If you can see it, you can shoot it." This game will hopefully be the biggest and best fully destructable game to be released on any console.

Platform: X-Box, PS2

Release date: Feb. 28, 2006

4. The Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion:

The moment I layed my eyes on the advertisement of this game in a gaming published magazine, I knew I had to get this HUGE anticipated title. The graphics are just breathtaking, the best I've ever seen in a game yet to date(as gameplay footage, not cinematics, but you already knew that...), the gameplay should be incredible, as there's, I hear, tons and tons of side-quests, plus an incredibly long main story, as well.

Everything else about this game will be fantastic. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is easily one of the most anticipated games of 2006!

Platform: X-Box 360

Release date: Mar. 20, 2006

3. Gears of War:

"Gears of War, an Xbox 360 exclusive that blends tactical action with survival horror, thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing story of humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet." -

Wow, what can I say? Gears of War should be the new generation of action based games and is easily one of the most anitipated games of 2006! With the new implemented Unreal Engine 3, the graphics will be redefining for the next generation of gaming.

I had the honor of watching Mark Rein, VP of Epic Games, play Gears of War on a black beta X-Box 360 last year at IGN Live. Man, that was an awesome experience... to witness Mark Rein of all people playing Gears of War! That was intense! I even got my picture taken with him, so that was pretty awesome, too! If you have an X-Box 360, PRE-ORDER Gears of War now! You will not soon regret it!

Platform: X-Box 360

Release date: July 3, 2006

2. Halo 3:

Well, what can I say about this game? Everyone I'm sure who's even the slightest gamer knows about Halo 3. Whoever has played Halo 2 and beat it knows that the ending was some-what of a cliff hanger, but I won't say how Halo 2 ended in attempt NOT to piss people off because of the spoiler, knows that Halo 3 will be HUGE.

If you thought Halo 2 was awesome, wait until Halo 3 gets released. Even though there's no sign of development of Halo 3, we all know that Halo 3 is in fact, in development, but there's really no official announcement made by Microsoft or Bungie at this time, but I'm sure we'll all find out at or a bit after this years E3.

They were even talking about Halo 3 being released at the same time as Sony's new console, PS3 to stall the sales of the PS3, because we all know if that happens that Halo 3 will be sold WAY more then the PS3 ever dreamed of. Halo 3 will be THAT good(I hope!).

Platform: X-Box 360

Release date: Some point to Winter 2006, but as of now, still TBA

1. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess:

Casual gamers, hardcore gamers, everyone knows about The Legend of Zelda franchise.

Everyone knows how awesome and great and magnificent and fantastic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is.

Everyone knows about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocerina of Time.

Link is back and ready to save the world of Hyrull all over again in his greatest adventure ever! I played all four demo levels of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at last year's E3 and they were every bit amazing as I'd imagined them to be and I so can't wait to get my hands on this game, because this will be the only game I'll be playing for the next few months after release.

The question everyone will be asking themselves, "Could The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess be even better and be an even greater game then The Legend of Zelda: Ocarine of Time?" Well, I guess we'll soon find out, but as it stands at this moment, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is easily the Greatest Game ever made in videogame history!

Do yourself a favor and pre-order The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess NOW!

Platform: GameCube

Release date: Fall 2006

Well, there you have it... My Top 5 Game Wishlist. All the games above will be out sooner then later and some later then sooner, but in the end, all these games will be superb!

2006 is gonna be a great year for videogames! WOOOOOO!

Don't have an X-Box 360 yet? Don't worry, you soon will!

IGN has posded a news tidbit Monday on their X-Box 360 section with news from D.I.C.E. 2006 in Las Vegas, talking with Peter Moore, Corporate Vice President of the Interactive Entertainment Business.

He stated this: "Apologies to those of you here and in Europe who haven't been able to find an Xbox 360," Moore opened with, but "you should be able to walk into stores in the next four to six weeks and find systems on store shelves" since production of the next-gen systems has been increased over the past month.

Isn't that reasuring? It should be, since in the next 1-2 months, anyone who hasn't been able to get an X-Box 360 yet, will easily be able to walk into a GameStop or EB and pick one up, so If I were you, I'd start saving up my cold hard cash now!
