risk factions is ok, but I wouldnt pay 15$ for it.
Dead rising case zero is good, its not long but thats a good thing for dead rising.

If you haven't tried it on DS, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes. And either 'Splosion Man or Ms. 'Splosion Man.

Torchlight. It's a really good Dungeon Crawler that's very similar to the first Diablo.

Wow, ask a simple question and you guys deliver the goods! Renegade OPS looks mighty interesting indeed. My mom is getting her 47 yr old kid a 320 gb Xbox hard drive for christmas, woot!

Edit: Oh Hydro Thunder, loved that on the Dreamcast, another must get! Thanks!
