1. Just Dance 3 (Nintendo Wii, PS3, Xbox 360) - Check it Out!

2. Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC) - Check it Out!
For Star Wars fans, this game should be right at the top of your wish list. Basically, this game takes place 300 years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic and more than 3,500 years before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. Players can either play for the Galactic Republic or the Sith Empire. As this game is an MMORPG, expect a lot of late nights with the buds. Oh, and a lot of pizza.

3. LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 (Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, PSVita, Wii, Nintendo DS, 3DS, PC, iOS) - Check it Out!

4. Portal 2 (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) - Check it Out!
There's a good chance you already know enough about Portal. That is unless you were living under a rock. In any case, this is a title that deserves the hype it has been given with a hilarious script and creative gameplay. If you need anymore reasons to buy Portal 2 for someone, check out our review.

5. Pokémon Black/White (Nintendo DS) - Check it Out!
The Pokémon series has been around forever and if you still haven't tried out any of the titles, perhaps you should try out Pokémon Black/White for the Nintendo DS.

6. Rayman Origins (PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, 3DS, PSVita) - Check it Out!

7. Minecraft (PC) - Check it Out!
Do you and your friends have a strange urge to build things out of pixelated blocks? Well here's the game for you!

Not to fear, as many of us on GamingUnion play it too. Check out this feature on Minecraft for more information.

8. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (PS3, Xbox 360, PC, iOS, Nintendo Wii, DS, 3DS) - Check it Out!

9. Battlefield 3 (PS3, Xbox 360, PC, iOS) - Check it Out!
If you're a bit more hardcore, but tired of playing Call of Duty, you and your friends should perhaps make the switch to Battlefield 3. The multiplayer is very balanced and there are tons of weapons to try out. Still not convinced? Read more here.
