8. Tomb Raider Anniversary, PS2, Xbox 360, PC, PSP and Wii.
Remaking movies is often frowned upon by film fans, but given the huge development in video games over the years a remake can do wonders. Tomb Raider Anniversary took Lara Croft's very first game into the modern era and fans everywhere were happy. As I said in my review: "It makes the most of modern technology to bring a classic game world up to date, throws in simple but intuitive controls and doesn't rely on constant fire-fights to bring excitement."
7. Hotel Dusk: Room 215, DS.
Something about this mysterious DS adventure game got Will very excited in 2007. It's fair to say that he thought it was 'cool': "The kind of cool more commonly seen in a black-and-white film about gangsters; the kind of cool Quentin Tarantino can magic up in a moment. Sure, lots of games have pretty cool effects or gameplay elements, but a human sense of cool that makes you think 'I wish I could be like him'? That is a very rare treat us gamers have almost forgotten we should see more often."
