Honorable mentions: Fallout 3 (played until I left the Vault), Fable 2 (made it to Bowerstone in Chapter 3), De Blob (free t-shirt!), Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (got the Wii and 360 versions), Dead Space (watched the DVD and read the comic), Braid (played some of the demo), Prince of Persia (limited edition with pre-order), Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (first full price PS3 game purchase), Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (I hear it’s brutally hard), Mirror’s Edge (reading the comic monthly), and Okami (got my replacement game sleeves).

And now, the top 10….
