From its November 2005 release, Need For Speed: Most Wanted spent a total of 10 weeks at the top of the charts. Displaced twice during its long reign - once by King Kong and then by the long-anticipated Dead or Alive 4 - the street racer then shot straight back to the top after each interuption. A year before, the previous Need For Speed also spent 10 weeks at number one.

The trailer for Silent Hill is genuinely exciting. As the movie is based on a videogame, this in itself is news. The characters, the chilling atmosphere, the twisted monsters overrunning the small town… it's all been kept astonishingly true to the Silent Hill series. We hold out genuine hope for it, as no doubt do stars Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell and Deborah Unger.

It's been a great few years for gaming, with a shedload of quality releases across all the formats. But spare a thought for the games that didn't make it to release: cut short before their prime, their followers left clutching those first precious screenshots and scouring news sites with the agonised uncertainty of someone with a missing pet. Join hands with us now as we remember 10 games that could have been contenders.
Not just Walking with Dinosaurs, but ganging up on the smaller ones
At times the internet's a shiny electro-portal straight into the heart of tomorrow, a winged techno-messenger bringing news at the speed of light. And at others, it's a river of filth, the father of lies and the crackle of static farts. It varies. But how to tell truth from desperate fiction? Well, GamesRadar, for one. And time reveals everything. Here are our favourite modern myths, debunked, de-frilled and derided.

It's perhaps a good thing that Perfect Dark Zero's star Joanna Dark is the younger, fresher equivalent of the leading lady who so deftly picked up the GoldenEye gauntlet with the original Perfect Dark on N64, and ran with it.
