CNET editor Jeff Bakalar shows you the video game titles you should be looking for the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Sony PlayStation 3.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Jeff Bakalar: Hey everyone I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com and today we're gonna be showing you a buying guide for all things video games. Now we're not gonna look at the 3 consoles cause not a lot has changed since last year, but what I am going to do is show you my individual pick for games, on each console. Let's go start with the Nintendo Wii. Hey everyone we're here in the Nintendo Wii section. Got a few games I want you guys to check out if you own the console. First game you should definitely take a look at Monster Hunter Tribe for the Nintendo Wii. Takes gamers to a world of adventure where they're hunting down enormous creatures, very cool, it's very big in Japan, and now it's made its way state side, definitely recommend you guys checking that out. Next, if that's not your cup of tea, check out Red Steel 2, brand new game from Moviesoft. First game to use Wii Motion Plus, which is a very big deal, guns flinging, sword swiping action, a lot of cool adventures to be had in this game as well. ^M00:01:02 Definitely worth checking out if you've got a Nintendo Wii. Also coming out this summer for the Nintendo Wii Super Mario Galaxy 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the original, definitely a must have for all Nintendo Wii owners. Also you're going to want to check out Metroid: Other M, it's due out in August. So if you have an X-box 360, definitely think you should check out a couple of these games. Alan Wake due out very soon. It's a psychological thriller game, very intense action, uncovering a story about a small mountain town. Definitely recommend Alan Wake for anyone who's ready for a scare for sure. Another game you guys should definitely check out for the Xbox 360 is Prince of Persia the Forgotten Sins. Prince of Persia is back. It's one of the strongest game [inaudible] of all time. This time around the Prince has all of the elements at his disposal, so he can freeze water, climb up waterfalls, do all kinds of very interesting stuff with the elements of the earth. ^M00:02:00 Definitely worth checking out if you've got an Xbox 360. Now let's go check out what we can look forward to on the PlayStation 3. First game we want you guys to check out on the PlayStation 3 is Red Dead Redemption made by Rockstar games, the people behind Grand Theft Auto. Red Dead Redemption is a western open world game. Think Grand Theft Auto but out in the old west. Next game everyone with a PlayStation 3 should be checking out is Mod Nation Racers, an exclusive game for PlayStation 3 where gamers can create their own players and tracks, race them with friends, and share these tracks online with other gamers around the world. Very cool stuff, a lot of customization opportunities here. Think of the game as little big planet meets sim city with a racing theme, very cool. Well that's gonna wrap it up for our video game buying guide.
