25 Pro Evolution Soccer 5

Kristan: I wish they'd stop releasing this every year. I might be good at it by now. One day I will turn over Mr Bramwell, but that will probably require doing a job that requires not reviewing 150 games a year.

Tom: Wrong. Also: I liked this because having become incredibly popular, they went completely against the grain and made the easy bits harder. Plus, there's still no other sports game that manages to convey the range of emotions that accompany scoring like PES does. Relief, bewilderment, confusion, ecstasy, and embarrassment - they map perfectly to what it does.

Ah, I suppose that's not a bad list, as far as Best of the Whatever lists go.

that's a bit more of a populist list

tekken 5 was very overrated

soul calibur 3 was the best beat em up of 2005, though it came rather late in the year
