Is this in order of how good they think the games will be from previews/hands on/etc or just like, the most wanted or something?

Oddly enough, I'm in for only DOA 4.  Oblivion is going to be a PC buy (as is CoD2)  unless it's 360 for a few months.  My top 5 are:

1) Ghost Recon 3
2) Dead or Alive 4
3) Gun
4) Frame City Killer
5) Condemned


Granted, they may not all make launch day but they are the ones that will get my bucks first (again, barring any major delays on their part.)

What happened to the supposed GTA killer Saint's Row that all the magazines have been hyping? Or is that not a launch title?

It's now a 2006 release.

My only definites are  Oblivion and GR3.  

Maybe PGR3 for the pretties but the previous two PGR games bored me to tears so I don't have a lot of hope for the third.  

I also hope things are turned on PD0 and will be looking at reviews on Kameo.  

Based off of the demo, Call of Duty 2 is far, far off of my list.

PGR3 and Oblivion for me as well.  The COD2 demo ran like crap on my PC, but I loved the first game and the expansion so much that I might end up buying it a week later.

I'd like to buy Madden, but I refuse to until we've actually gotten more than a few screenshots and some concrete impressions.... my spidey sense is tingling w/ that game.

Well, dammit, my COD demo problems were related to a bad configuration - once I ran it at the correct level it's smooth as butter.   Reminded me of United Offensive, which isn't a bad thing - looks like I might have to seriously think about picking COD2 up as well....

Its UO-ish, meaning the weapons and whatnot are more "realistic", the scripting is much tighter and exciting, but in terms of presentation and stuff, man its a whole nother step ahead.

You know that the 360 comes with those USB ports that they say are compatible for keyboards.    I'm crossing my fingers that Oblivion ships with mouse/keyboard support for Xbox 360.

Probably a pipe dream though.

Don't count out Perfect Dark Zero yet either.  I had a chance to see it up close last week and I'm much more excited about it than I was beforehand.  

If nothing else, I predict it will be the first must-have online shooter for the system.
