Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
One of the most hotly anticipated games of 2008, this would make an excellent gift for anyone who likes Star Wars.
I'm no video game enthusiast, but my bf sucked me into this one. And I have to say, its a really fun game. You can play all six Star Wars movies, so you're gaurantees hours upon hours of fun and adventure.
The original Soul Calibur was one of the greatest fighting games of all time, and the new 4th version is even better.
