Short Review: The story was simple but endearing but the key was how much fun it was to simply run. Around, over, through. The perfect game for speedrunning.

Short Review: A huge, detailed game world (or galaxy even!) and tight if not spectacular combat made this a joy to play but it was the wonderful end that pushed it so far up this list. A great (story-based) game can fall down with a lame end but this game showed that a great ending can elevate the game as well.

Short Review: After the (campaign) disappointment of Halo 2, this was a real return to form. A good story with a great end and the same fun run-and-gun gameplay of the first Halo.

Short Review: Whilst it lacked the spectacular and exciting end of the first game Mass Effect 2 did a great job of holding your attention to a main single story despite its length and massive scope. Great example of DLC that added to the game rather than just being a random add-on too.
