All of the HALO games, DIrt 2, All of the Starfox games, Infamous, Crackdown, Ghostbusters for the 360, Gears of War games for the 360 ( PC versions SUCKED ), Descent 1 2 3 but NOT freespace, UT2004 and UT3 for PC, Midtown Madness 2, Blur for 360.

Starfox ASSAULT.... might be a kiddy crew but it is an excellent game.

On the console, Chrono Trigger is great, and Mario RPG is a close 2nd.

For PC:
Diablo 2/LOD
Command and Conquer
Freespace 2
Mechwarrior 4: Mercs
SC2 Beta, and I'm assuming the full version when it comes out

The one GoW game they made for PC was horribly buggy. Like the error with wargame-g4wlive.exe... you have to change the date on your comp to something before 2009 just for the game to work. And I don't think GFWL will let you play online with that fix. It's a big mess.

How can one list a GOTY for 2010 when the year isn't even half way over yet?

Easy. If none of the games coming out at the end of the year interest you, you can easily make your personal GOTY choice.

I know it's from 1998, but if you have never played STARCRAFT.... Go buy a copy now.

If you liked mass effect then you should try out KotOR (Knights of the Old Republic)
Plays out exactly the same, but its starwars (and older so give the graphics a break)

Half Life 2 and all the episodes were great.
Obligatory Portal recommendation.
Starcraft was/is awesome
Diablo 2 was fun as well
007 Goldeneye for the 64
Mario RPG
Disgaea if you like to spend endless hours doing rpg stuff
Phantom Brave if you liked Disgaea
Mount & Blade
Heroes of Newerth
And so many more...
