I like Tiger Woods 2007 because it makes you earn skill. You can't just pick up the game and dominate. I'm not very good right now, but I'm getting better.
I played FNR 3 for the first time yesterday, and had some trouble with the punching system. I couldn't figure it out on a consistent basis. I couldn't land many power punches. The guy I was playing knocked me out in the first round a couple times. The game has sweet graphics.
If you listen to the dialogue in Gears of War, you can hear some good humor.
