Get the Best Games for Your PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii

Hundreds of new games flood the market each year, more if you include game apps for mobile devices. It can be difficult to sort the worthwhile from the junk. After all, paying $40 or more for a video game that soon ends up in your low-value trade-in bin can feel like an epic fail. However, it’s avoidable if you do a little research beforehand.

We’ve done some research of our own and compiled a list of the best games for the top three gaming consoles and PCs. Read on to find out which games are worth your hard-earned green this year, and stop wasting money on games you’re never going to play more than once.
