If You Just Got a Video Game Console, Get These GamesS

Kotaku's put their game of the year awards up, and it's a pretty good start to building your gaming collection if you've just gotten an Xbox 360, PS3 or Wii over the holidays.

Although their categories, like best art, best sound and best innovation may not be a great template for finding a game in a genre that YOU like, it is a jumping board to checking out quality games—which all of these are. We'd definitely go with GTA4, Metal Gear Solid 4, plus Dead Space (if you like shooters). [Kotaku]
