The Most Thrilling Video Games for Next Generation Consoles

J. Capuano "Joe Capuano (Avid Writer)"
 
Resident Evil - Gamecube
Resident Evil - Gamecube
"Not only is this one of the best looking games of all time (excellent shadow effects), it's got plenty of ominous music and gore to give anyone the creeps (don't play it in the dark)."
Grand Theft Auto III
Grand Theft Auto III
"Incredibly violent and filled with mature themes, this game will provide hours of fun.  But it's thrilling because of your wanted level.  Try running from the FBI."
Silent Hill 2
Silent Hill 2
"Much like Resident Evil, this game employs horror, atmosphere, and suspense to create a pulse-pounding gaming experience."
Wave Race: Blue Storm
Wave Race: Blue Storm
"Extraordinary graphics, but you may be wondering why this is on the list.  Just race in expert mode when it's thundering out with five-foot-high waves."
Halo: Combat Evolved
Halo: Combat Evolved
"A gory shoot-'em-up with an alien story and a Dolby Digital 5.1 sound option (one of the first games to incorporate this).  Hordes of hostile beings rush you as you try to survive.  With no ammo."
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
"Combines frantic and violent action with stealth missions to create a unique gaming experience.  You'll find yourself holding your breath to hide from a passing enemy.  And the boxes don't do crap!"
Max Payne - Xbox
Max Payne - Xbox
"Despite cheesy dialogue and bad acting, this is still one hell of a game.  When faced by three or four enemies, your only hope is bullet-time.  And it adds to the cinematic feel."
Medal of Honor Frontline - PlayStation 2
Medal of Honor Frontline - PlayStation 2
"The Dolby Surround soundtrack really helps add to the effect of this realistic (yet surprisingly graphically violent) tale of U.S. vs. the Nazis.  Good for war movie fanatics."
Devil May Cry
Devil May Cry
"Plays like Exorcist: The Video Game.  The storyline is more disturbing than the gameplay, but that still holds some chills and spills (of blood), as well."
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
"Don't ask me how I got a copy of this game a month in advance.  Anyway, the game is really creepy and atmospheric.  And for a nice twist, your character can go insane if not played fast enough."
