Similar to what Movie Talk (http://dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=449953) and Music Talk (http://dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=451539) have going on, I figured it was a good idea if everyone individually ranked games they've played in 2006.
The preferred format would be games with a 2006 release, ranked (in order) as well as given a rating and what platform it was played on (specific console, PC, arcade, etc.). However, if you want to add games you've first played this year that were older games, feel free to include it. Or break it down with old games vs. new games or per-console or however you want to do it.
Full Auto - 7/10 (great rental)
Fight Night Round 3 (XBOX 360) - 8/10 (I need to spend some more time with this one, still getting use to the controls)
College Hoops 2K6 (XBOX 360) - 6/10 (Good not great and released way to late in the season)
Added Xbox Live Arcade:
Zuma - 10/10 (perfect for the arcade, got my wife to accept the XBOX 360 as friend not foe, still coming back to this two months later)
Marble Blast Ultra - 8/10 (well-worth $10)
Crystal Quest - 6/10 (loved the original, this one just didn't keep my interest, at least it was only $5)
Jewel Quest - 6.5/10 (fun, but overpriced at $10)
Feeding Frenzy - 6.5/10 (see Jewel Quest)

Check out my sig to see my rankings as I've played them this year...
But aside from games I've reviewed, my personal favs so far are Burnout Revenge, Fight Night and Geo Wars. I've yet to play GRAW (this week I will be though, review to follow), and I am cautiously optimistic that Oblivion will rank high on the list.

Here's my Rankings. All of them will be games for the 360 since I don't buy games anymore for my PS2.
Call of Duty 2 - This game has it all. Graphics, sound effects, online, and single player just doesn't get any better.
Marble Blast Ultra - This game has it all amazing graphics, great single player that has 60 levels (I think), online that is great to just pick up and play and fun achievements. This game has it all.
Perfect Dark Zero - Online is great on this game, my favorite part of the game for sure. A lot of weapons to chose from and alot of online features that keep the game fresh.
Fight Night Round 3 - Single player can get a bit repetitive, but it's still fun. The graphics and online are also strong features.
Project Gotham Racing 3 - It's a really good racing game with great graphics but it can get a bit repetitive online and in single player. It has a great mix of cars, just online expect to see the red Ferraris everywhere.
Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter - Great graphics, single player is a ton of fun. I havn't been online a lot but when I have it was a ton of fun.
Madden NFL 06 - It's a pretty basic football game with great graphics. Alot of features were taken out, but it's still a good football game to play if you only just want to score touchdowns.
