The year's nearly over, Santa's resting 'til next Xmas and Gary's playing his new games. What were the big names, the big surprises and the top games of the year? Here's the 411 from Gary.

If you're wrapping up the year with a craving for a good game, check these out. They're the best, the brightest and the coolest games for any system.

1#1 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
Tony Hawk is a god. That's all there is to it. If you haven't played this game you're crazy. It has the graphics, the action and the attitude to amaze even your pet fish and now you can pull your moves on the 'net. The only game that will be able to compete with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is gonna be Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. 'nuff said.

1#2 Gran Turismo 3:A-spec
Fast cars, smooth graphics and enough options to confuse even a mechanic. If you've EVER wanted to do some serious driving, this is the one, the only and the greatest game for you.


1#3 Halo
Right off the bat the Xbox has a champ. Halo combines the awesome power of the Xbox with the action and excitement of playing against a seriously smart AI as you battle for control of a wacky planet that's shaped like a halo.


1#4 Metal Gear Solid 2:Sons of Liberty
Solid Snake's return to gaming is a butt-kicker of an adventure with more of the intense action that makes this series a 'solid' winner.


1#5 Star Wars Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron II
Feel the power of the force as Star Wars takes the #5 slot with one of the first Gamecube games ever. It combines video scenes with awesome action to make an out of this world hit.


1#6 Mage Knight
It's a toy, it's a game, it's both! Mage Knight's cool miniature warrior figures, fast paced game and easy strategy let it conquer its way into a spot on the top games of the year.


1#7 Magi-Nation Duel
This card game of strategy, planning and magic lets everyone who plays it compete to take over the moon. Letting players mess with the story and packing it full of wicked artwork makes Magi-Nation Duel a game of the year.


1#8 Jet Grind Radio
One of the finest games for the Dreamcast makes the list at number eight thanks to plenty of action, cool music and the biggest dose of style the designers could fit onto a CD.


1#9 Dance Dance Revolution
Not your average game. Dance Dance Revolution gets you up and hopping to the beat as you shake your booty. As one of the only games to get you in shape and still be fun it deserves a big thumbs up!


1#10 The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons
The Legend of Zelda is a classic series of games and these two don't disappoint. They score a spot on the list at number ten.
