Best Video Games of '05

Which are the hottest games for the holidays this year?

Up To The Minute Computer Consultant John Quain offers a few good suggestions. None of the games are the so-called "first-person shooters," because Quain says the players who are old enough to play them already know their favorites.

Instead, he offers these suggestions:

"The Movies," for PCs, by Activision

"Burnout Legends," for PCs by EA Games

"Madden '06" by EA Sports

"Age of Empires III," by Microsoft

"Lumines for PSP," by Ubisoft

"Civilization IV" by 2K Games

"Nintendogs," by Nintendo
