Now that 2007 has passed us by, the staff at Gaming Nexus took a look back at the best games they played last year. 2007 was a banner year for games with some awesome releases. So here's what we thought were the best that we played.

Crackdown - This sandbox game was bought by most for the Halo 3 beta, but proved worthy of many hours of play hunting down those ****ing orbs!

Rock Band - While this may not be nearly as fun going it solo as it is with a house full of drunk party guests, it is still worth the $170 for the bundle as long as your Guitar works fine.

Call of Duty 4 - This game succeeded where halo 3 did not,and that is having a topnotch single player campaign that looked and played fantastic. throw in some great multi-player levels and the abundance of class types, and you have yourself a hit.

Mad Tracks - This little party gem on Xbox Live Arcade is the perfect game to bring together young and old gamers into a fun party style game. You don't fully respect it until you again have a houseful of guests.

Rock Band - Can't say I didn't see this coming as playing with it at E3 showed me early on that rocking with toy instruments with a group is more fun than going solo.

Call of Duty 4 - Loved, loved, loved this game even though it didn't do anything really new. Everything was just held together really well and the game flowed smoothly. Glad to see it back on the PC.

Portal - The cake may be a lie but this little gem isn't. Besides a catchy song at the end, GLaDOS was a hoot to go up against and provided some great comic relief.

Team Fortress 2 - The Orange Box scores with two of my favorite games this year. The style is really fun and the updated gameplay to a classic multiplayer game really had me sitting at my computer for many many hours this year.

Rock Band - This one will always be one of my favorites as I've never been too great at guitar.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker - Sure, I'm a long time fan of the franchise but at the same time? This one has a solid story to go along with the monster catching mayhem.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings - I'm not too big on the tactics based FF games however, the real time element of Revenant Wings has me hooked.
