Sony's PlayStation Move

Appealing to both hardcore gamers (with the franchises they love) and casual gamers (with ease of use), Nintendo's Wii has been a powerhouse in the video-game market. This success has led Nintendo's main competitors, Microsoft with Xbox 360 and Sony with PlayStation 3, to develop their own motion-control schemes -- which will be hitting the market in the next few months.

Red Dead Redemption

The sequel to Red Dead Revolver, a story of vengeance in the Wild West, has been a long-awaited title from Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games, with almost five years since its announcement. It was feared to be neglected with the developer's focus on 2008's critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto 4 and its Liberty City expansions. Fear not though: This western tale (finally released this month) is a great experience that's heightened with finely tuned controls and a new innovation in multiplayer gaming.

God of War III packs all the punch of its predecessors while bringing the experience to a whole new level. The simple yet deep combat system is amplified by superior graphics and the final chapter in the tale of Kratos, a warrior whose loyalty to the gods of Mount Olympus brought him nothing but suffering.

'Final Fantasy XIII'

Just because it's called Final Fantasy XIII doesn't mean you need to play the other 12 to appreciate the experience. Every numbered game in the Final Fantasy franchise (in other words, excluding spin-offs such as Tactics or Crystal Chronicles) is a unique experience that stands alone, with a detailed world containing lots of history and interesting characters with distinctive traits; the series is also not wed to any one style of gameplay. This new game makes some drastic changes from its predecessors, but it stays true to the series by telling an epic story in a majestic world deserving the name Final Fantasy.

Heavy Rain

2005's Indigo Prophecy was an interactive thriller in which players took the roles of two police officers and a murderer, and it was praised for the freedom it offered and cinematic storytelling through multiple points of view. Unfortunately it fell short with a story that started as a crime drama and turned into a paranormal experience involving ancient cults and actions scenes almost ripped straight from The Matrix. With its new game Heavy Rain, developer Quantic Dream has rectified that story misstep with a game that not only brings story immersion to a new level but pushes the limits of gameplay graphics.
