The Best Games Of:

Ok, this list should make sense to you: I pick my favorite video games from each year, starting with 2000. Also, I'm not including any titles I haven't played before. Alright, here we go: 
 
2000 

Spyro: Year of the Dragon 
A brilliant platformer that kept me entertained ALL the time back then. Probably my favorite of the three. 
 
2001 
 
Halo: Combat Evolved
I must admit I haven't played this game a lot, but when I do, I must say that it's a blast!
 
2002

  
Timesplitters 2/ Kingdom Hearts 
Great shooter that I wish I got to play more/ Action RPG that I almost got addicted to for a while.
 
2003  
 
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time 
A fantastic action platformer that only hits a snag in combat. 
 
2004

 
Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal/ Metroid: Zero Mission
The best R&C on the PS2, maybe even the best period/ What do I have to say about this one? 2D Metroid FTW!

 
2005 
 
Resident Evil 4/ Star Wars: Battlefront 2  
A thrilling title that only had one flaw: Not being able to move while attacking/ The shooter that occupied me more than any other, this was a thing of beauty (Even if I'm not a big Star Wars fan!) 
 
2006 
 
KIngdom Hearts II 
I'm one of the few people who enjoyed this game as much as the original. Also, I only picked this for 2006 because I can't find anything good for the year. 
 
2007 
God of War II/ Uncharted 
 
A gritty, awesome button-masher that was way better than the third/ My first PS3 game! Great gunplay, platforming, and puzzle-solving, only to be marred by the survival/horror element closer to the end of the game. *Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Super Mario Galaxy are runner-ups*
 
2008

LittleBigPlanet/Prince of Persia 
A charming little platformer that I still return to after getting it so long ago (Can't wait for 2!); Easy? Yes. Beautiful? Definitely. This game was so easy and yet so amazing IMO. 
 
2009 
 
Refer to this list 
Also, I would have to include things I didn't get around to last year, such as Borderlands 
 
2010 
Red Dead Redemption/ Super Mario Galaxy 2 
Best. Western. Ever./ Brilliant platformer; maybe even better than the original!

@TurboMan:
Maybe; LittleBigPlanet 2 does look pretty good, but RDR and SMG2 are just SO good!

Nice list! I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan myself. And Red Dead is definitely one of this year's best games.
