Gears of War (X360/2006) Guessed by AlphaCielago
No game made me want a shiny new Xbox 360 more than Gears of War. I remember seeing that "Mad World" commercial so many times, and loving every minute of it. It remains, in my mind, the very best video game commerical ever made. And the game is worthy of the hype. It's probably the best third-person shooter of all time, with incredible shooting and cover mechanics, amazing graphics and sound, and one of the more interesting game worlds and mythologies of the past ten years.
