Personally I felt Mario peaked with Super Mario Bros 3, even though Super Mario World, 64 and Galaxy were all excellent. The other two I'd agree with. In fact I'd say Nintendo, for the most part, peaked during the N64 generation. Afterwards, their series'  seemed to go downhill a bit, besides Metroid, which I felt peaked with Prime.

I actually tried to maintain a balance between the two to be honest. On my second play through I went completely renegade and on my third I went through completely paragon.

I actually love UNO.

A resounding "Yay". It made you plan ahead, far more than in previous games, and I think that added an extra layer of depth to it all. If I could have changed anything though, I would have limited the gambits to maybe five or less slots, so that you would more strategically choose the gambits you used. This would also have prevented the possibility of controlling characters entirely on gambits, even though I felt the combination of gambits and manual input was the best way to succeed in battles.

Either way, it was an excellent feature brought forward to the series, and I can't wait to see where XIII takes it.

Yeah I am British, but of course I'd rather live in Canada.

With the terrible voice acting Sega gave him, his super annoying 'friends' and all the horrible games he's a part of, Sonic is just a shadow of his former self. Mario wins by default.

360 version.

Whatever Team ICO are making, primarily. Following that I'd go for Little Big Planet, Gears of War 2, Pikmin 3 and Final Fantasy XIII.

How can you even watch that program? It just reminds you that British society has an extremely ugly side to it.
