In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

The 'Action' genre really lived up to its name this year, with a riot's share of violent, unhinged combatants. But even with some fresh new faces in the mix, a couple veterans clawed their way to the top of the scrum, bringing honor and glory to...the Sony PSP?!

 

ACTION GAME OF THE YEAR!

Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

Publisher: Konami
Developer: Kojima Productions
Platform: PSP

 

All we wanted was Metal Gear Solid for the PSP. Not trading cards (sorry Acid!), nothing new or fancy, just the chance to play one of our favorite games ever while pooping, waiting for a train, settling down for sleep, or some combination of all three.

Alas, even we are sometimes really, really wrong, because a new and fancy Metal Gear Solid, in this case Portable Ops, is thrice the game a port could ever be, complete with solid online multiplayer, an incredible collection system, and fascinating insights into the past of the Big Boss and everyone's favorite harbinger of doom, the Metal Gear. We've never pooped so happily while waiting to sleep on a train in our lives.

 

RUNNERS-UP!

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

Publisher: Sony
Developer: Sony
Platform: PSP

Just when we were about to use the PSP solely as a shaving mirror, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror arrived. An original and largely successful translation of the popular Sony franchise to the tiny screen, Dark Mirror resurrected Gabe Logan to surprising results. Here, finally, is a game that proves the PSP is a strong console in its own right—and for that, it is one of the best action games of the year.

 

Dead Rising

Publisher: Capcom
Developer: Capcom
Platform: Xbox 360

Everybody knows you can never have too many zombies, but Capcom decided to go ahead and prove it anyway in Dead Rising. Taking full advantage of the 360's power, the sheer size of these zombie hordes will terrify even the most jaded gamers, as they attempt to survive for three days in a besieged shopping mall. We can’t get enough of the zombies, or this undying game.
