What new games would you want avatar awards?

I would want half life episode 3 to have avatar awards. It would be epic if i could get a head crab that would cover my avatars whole face.

I wouldn't call it "epic" but I suppose some Half-Life avatar awards could be kind of cool. However, I think when it comes to making the next Half-Life game avatar awards should probably be just about the bottom priority for Valve.

@FirePrince: Avatar awards have nothing to with achievements, you just get them in similar way in some games. In L4D2 if you kill a certain number of zombies you get a shirt.
 
There is a list of the games that have avatar awards here

I'd like to see some avatar awards added to Mass Effect 2, like a krogan or turian head or something like that.

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be hardly any retroactive avatar awards.  But more games are getting awards every day so there is always ME3.

Also, there is a fixed maximum size for avatar stuff that probably won't change.  It's set that way because of games with Avatar support (there is tons of technical detail on their blog).  So the animations and bounding boxes won't get wrecked no matter what gear you put on them.   So a Krogan head might not be possible and look good.

They have Vault Boy head from Fallout 3 so a krogan head wouldn't nessicarily have to be much bigger then that.

Armour from Fallout New Vegas would be nice. Or maybe a ghoul skin.
 
edit: a Clap trap avatar accessory would be cool two.

I fear it might end up like the horrifying Chewbacca head.  There is something to be said for chosing not to do something you can't do right.

That is something I'd like to see, skin textures or colors.

Nanosuit from Crysis 2 could be cool.
