It's the end of 2007 and Christmas is almost here, complete with the wrapping-paper party that lets you know how naughty or nice you've been all year long. If you've been good, or at least smart enough to not get caught, you might be busting open a Nintendo Wii or an Xbox 360. If you got busted being naughty, then you might be stuck with a stinker of a game, like Transformers, The Golden Compass, or maybe even Godzilla! Those games were awful, but what games were good? Gary's got a list of the Top 10 Games of 2007 for you so you'll know what to trade your clunkers in for! Check it out here, from #10 all the way to #1.

#5. Super Mario Galaxy for WiiTurn gravity upside-down in this new galaxy-sized adventure for Mario and the mushroom kingdom crew! If you thought the soccer action of Mario Strikers Charged was fantastic, check this out. Mario unleashes new powers and new moves as he travels from planet to planet, each with its own gravity, in a mission to stop Bowser from... well, from doing what Bowser always does. Seriously dude, get a girlfriend. Or a hobby - tennis maybe?
#4. DDR: Hottest Party for Wii[KWLINK ]Dance Dance Revolution[/KWLINK] has arrived for the Nintendo Wii and... W00T! The music rocks, the dancing action is great and the Wiimotes add a bit of extra fun to the game without going overboard. It's the perfect way to have fun, shed the holiday bulge and get your dancing groove on so you can show it off to your friends next time there's a party.
#3. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl for DSThey're back, bigger, shinier and better than ever. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl are two nearly identical Pokemon games that have kicked off the new generation of Pokemon-catching action and boy do they rock. It starts with improved battling, more evolutions, better controls, a new region, and a new villain with Team Galactic. Then it goes crazy - underground tunnels, online battling and trading that can unlock more evolutions, and the ability to import your Pokemon from older games so you can keep your collection. Then it tops it off with internet voice chat that lets you use the game like a phone to talk to anybody you're trading or battling with, for free, anywhere in the world. Wow.
#2. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Trilogy for PS3, Xbox 360 and WiiWith the #1 spot in the 2006 and 2005 Game of the Year countdowns, the LEGO Star Wars series drops a notch to #2 with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Trilogy! Why? Well, even with all the hilarious action, great jokes, tons of power-ups, fantastic multiplayer and uber "LEGO + Star Wars = awesome" combo, it's an update of the first two games. It's still fantastically fun, but it's a lot of repeated stuff. The LEGO Star Wars team needs to dive into the Star Wars novels and comics for a dose of the expanded universe in a sequel.
#1. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for DS and PSPWhat does Puzzle Quest do to make it the game of the year? It combines casual gaming with an intense roleplaying adventure and slaps a layer of excellent multiplayer modes and features onto it like a thick coating of delicious icing! You make a hero, battle monsters by matching gems, gain powers, build a kingdom, capture monsters, train mounts, equip items and more in this fantastically addictive game. Not only is Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords the kind of game that can keep hardcore gamers playing for weeks, it's also something that anybody, from kids to grandparents, can play. It's a fantastic game that deserves Kidzworld's Game of the Year award.
