2006 is coming to an end with the glorious video-games-in-wrapping-paper celebration of Christmas! If you've been good Santa's stuffing your stocking with a new Nintendo Wii, or maybe a PS3 or an Xbox 360. If you've been bad you'll get a copy of Open Season. But, there are so many video games out there, which ones should you be crossing your fingers for this holiday season? Gary's got the 411 for you right here with his Top 10 Games of 2006 list. Starting at #10 and working up to #1, here they are!

#10. Viva Pinata for Xbox 360

Viva Pinata - Top Video Game of 2006 This cute, colorful, TV show-based game lets you take over a virtual garden and, with some skill and a lot of love, turn it into a pi�ata paradise! There are tons of pinatas to attract, mini-games to play and a story to uncover. It's easy enough for gamers of any age to enjoy, but has some challenging bits to keep hardcore pi�ata collectors busy. If only you could show off your garden online!

This game is also a great way to convince your 'rents to get you a Nintendo DS!

#7. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team for DS

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon - Top Video Game of 2006 It's fun to collect and train Pokemon, but actually becoming a Pokemon and leading teams of Pokemon on missions to rescue other Pokemon and save the world from an environmental catastrophe is awesome!

#6. LocoRoco for PSP
