MOST POPULAR FEATURES21 Greatest Pokémon of All Time

I was not originally a fan of FFVII ; in fact, I remember looking at the commercials in the '90s and finally purchasing the game only to realize the commercials only showed CGI scenes. I was young and needless to say...
So you own a PS3. Wait, you have one? (ohhhh, snap) Despite the lack of exclusives, the big, black box has some decent entries in its library this year, and if you don't have a 360, there's plenty to make your inner gift-grabber happy.
