Every game site, magazine, blog, and TV show in the universe does some sort of end-of-year wrap-up. It's a chance to look back and remember the triumphs, and sometimes tragedies, of the last twelve months, tie it all up with a neat, little bow, and give it one more little smooch before shoving it under the bed and screaming for something new, which you can then say isn't nearly as good as the old, classic stuff.
Anyhow, these lists are typically top tens, maybe twenties. But our companion site Next Gen went big - real big - and knocked together a list of the top 50 games of last year. It's a kick. Check it out.
