Madden NFL 09

come on people, fight the EA hype machine. this game don't belong in the top 20 while 2K NBA game is not.... that is just wrong

I personally thought Burnout Paradise was complete crap. Rented it from Gamefly, and returned it a couple days later. Couldn't get into it. Sadly though, I never thought I'd go back to Halo 3 after playing Call of Duty 4, but since most of my friends got World At War (and I didn't want it), I decided to fire up H3 for a little while. Interestingly enough, I'm actually starting to like it, even though I kind of suck at it
