Since we can't POSSIBLY play everything that is out there, we are going to try something new - help us write a holiday guide!  There are a lot of great titles and a lot of filler, help our readers seperate them for their holiday shopping.  

We'd like something for each of these categories:

1.) Xbox Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

2.) PS2 Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

3.) Cube Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

4. Xbox 360 Launch Title must-have
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

5.) PC Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

6.) Hardware (vid card, sound card, mouse, etc.)
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up
    c.) runner up
    d.) runner up
(category is pretty broad, so we'll go big)

7.) Nintendo DS Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

8.) PSP Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

9.) GBA Title
    a.) runner up
    b.) runner up

Think of it as your viewer's choice awards....except we actually listen. slywink

Writing what I know about:

PS2:[/u]
if (LikesRPGs == 1) {Dragon Quest VIII};
else {Resident Evil 4};

Others:
-Shadow of the Colossus (ideally, a gift card to rent it)

PC:[/u]
*Civilization 4
*World of Warcraft (if you hate the person and never want to see them in public again, plus it's only $20 after rebate through December)

Others:
-Dungeon Siege 2 (surprisingly good ARPG -- lots of action tempered with lush, highly explorable environments and lengthy, complex sidequests)

-Mount & Blade (it's a digital download, and still not 'complete' yet, but for a hardcore PC Gamer that can cope with those two issues, it's a hell of a game)

PSP
*Don't waste your money.

Nintendo DS
*Mario Kart DS
*Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Others:
-Mario & Luigi: Brothers in Time (haven't played yet but I intend to -- good reviews)

-Kirby: Canvas Curse (good game but gets repetitive fast, kids that are old enough to understand its mechanics and deal with its challenges might really like it though)

-Meteos (required reading in every DS library, that being said, it's more of a 'old reliable' game than a super-engaging one)

GBA
*Gunstar Super Heroes

Others:
-Riviera: The Promised Land (for anyone mature and patient enough to enjoy a very conceptual / nonconventional RPG)
