The Chinese need to add a new sign to their astrological chart. This is no longer the Year of the Monkey, but the Year of the Game. There are many good games coming out this year (hopefully) and many of them have the potential to go above and beyond call of duty. Such as HL 2, Doom 3, Halo 2, Rome: Total War, and Fable.
Here is to hoping HL 2 will be out soon and be as good as it looks. (I haven't actually played the first HL.)
