No. 8: Wolfenstein
With an outstanding pedigree (the game was designed by the guys who created first-person shooters), the Nazi shooter Wolfenstein takes the genre to a level last seen by the ridiculously good BioShock.
The controls are flawless, the graphics stunning and the story riveting. Add to that a nonlinear list of tasks and a plethora of nooks and crannies to explore, and you've got the best occult-driven World War II shooter of all time.
Details: PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms; $59.99; rated Mature (blood and gore, intense violence, language).
