The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Action Action/Adventure First-Person Shooter Online Puzzle Top 5
Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
Attempting to hoist only 5 games above the throngs is risky business, the sort of process that ruins relationships and starts really nasty drug habits. Not that we've succumbed to either, but yeah, we have.

Anyway, here they are, the Top 5 Games of 2005. Feel free to complain, argue, rejoice, do an awkward victory dance. Whatever. but be forewarned that we stand by our rickety math until someone disproves it. Please submit all theories in writing.

Civilization IV

Publisher: 2K Games
Developer: Firaxis
The game that keeps on giving, Civ 4 is a study in smart strategy design. Expounding on the best gameplay elements of its storied past, this latest culture war raises the bar with its sweet engine and intelligent online play. He might be older than Gandhi, btu Sid Meier still knows a thing or two about brilliant gaming.

Battlefield 2

Publisher: EA
Developer: Digital Illusions
The long-awaited sequel finally arrived in 2005, bringing with it a massive suite of reinforcements. No other game can match Battlefield 2's combination of great squad mechanics, superb delivery and deep gameplay, but the real reason we keep coming back is that it's just so damn fun. If we knew war was this cool (and virtually painless), we would have enlisted years ago.

Shadow of the Colossus

Publisher: Sony
Developer: Sony Japan
Are games art? Are you f***ing kidding me? Rarely will the entire office stop and gather around a console to watch a single-player game, but that's exactly what happened during our memorable time spent with Shadow of the Colossus. Gorgeous, morose, emotional, meditative, thrilling - a giant in every sense of the word.

God of War

Publisher: Sony
Developer: Sony Santa Monica
Sony's action masterpiece almost unfairly plucks at our geekiest soft spots with its unwavering tale of mythological vengeance. Then, it delivers incredible graphics and sound, not to mention the year's coolest protagonist and gnarliest weapons. Beware, cookie-cutter sequels and licensed hooey - Kratos has arrived, and he's not happy about it. We, however, are.
