The best games to buy right now

Wondering what to buy right now? GamesRadar has you covered.

We’ve built some killer lists focusing on the top games to buy from the past year. The best part? These lists will be continually updated, so anytime you check them you can be assured it’ll include the latest and greatest buying advice. Basically, whenever a new game is released, if we think it’s worthy of your time and hard-earned cash, we’ll see if it makes sense to bump off something else to make room for it. That way you’ll always know what our crack team of dedicated experts thinks is worthwhile – perfect for both hardcore gamers and casual players alike!

So where can you find these lists? Starting tomorrow, you can check the dropdown menus for each platform, where these lists will be permanently housed. Or, click through on the following links below.

Best Xbox 360 Games
Best PlayStation 3 Games
Best PC Games
Best Wii Games
Best 3DS Games
Best PSP Games
Best DS Games

We’ll be adding a lot more lists in the coming weeks and months, so be sure to turn to GamesRadar whenever you need the very best buying advice!

    Good idea but so far it is only on Xbox 360. The only way to get to Wii/PS3/etc. is through these links.

    Thecakeisapie is definitely correct. Exclusives should take top billing for a console list, otherwise I feel like I'm reading the same list over and over. I think if this article is about "Best Games to Buy" it should link to websites or such that have good deals. It could be an article companion to TalkRadar's "Game Deals" segment.

    Hey, this is a pretty nice feature, cool ^^ However, having checked most of these lists, I have to ask, what exactly is the criteria used? aside from picking 10 games of high score from the latest the system got? Or more like, what are the limits? because for example, the PS3 and the 360 lists have all their 10 games being from 2011 exclusively, but the Wii and the DS have reached to grab games from 2010 and such. Not saying those systems shouldn't have games from those years, but I mean, if you're gonna grab games from 2010 from those systems, wouldn't it make sense to also add 2010 games for PS3 and 360 as well? Which also makes me wonder, will you guys expand the list only with latest games? or also include games from earlier years? I guess, mainly my confusion lies in the why did you have to make all the lists have 10 games only? this would have made sense if you weren't planning to expand on them, but you are, so I don't quite get it.

    Yay! The world is a better place than it was two hours ago reCaPtcha: erymeld included what?

    Good feature! If I may offer a suggestion, you should put exclusives at the top of the list, followed by multiplatform. That way it won't be as redundant, e.g. "Portal 2" at the top of three lists.

    Great idea :D
