Red Alert 3. Are you sure?
Congratulations to the Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! team, obviously. And I have to say that I’m surprised that Tomb Raider Underworld has done so badly – it’s one of the best Tomb Raider games in years.
So anyway, does everyone agree with that list? If not, who would you nominate?
