Top six games googlers play

Top six computer games that a googler plays. Well, not any googler, but just one particular googler - Nelson Minar. In fact, I have already gathered some statistics on the games, googlers play. Would anybody be interested in seeing the "global" Google stats? :)
Between being in Switzerland for three months and all the new games out for the Christmas season I have a giant backlog of interesting computer games to play. Should last me for six months! If you're thinking of a gift for the gamer geek in your life, maybe this list will help you.
Shadow of the Colossus (PS/2)
Poetic and innovative platform game for the PS/2. I've played a bit and it's really beautiful.
Civilization IV (PC)
Empire building and wargames, many hours time sink.
Burnout: Revenge (Xbox)
Arcade racer; not clear it add much to last year's standout Takedown, but it's fun.
Battlefield 2: Special Forces (PC)
BF2 is the only online FPS worth playing. This expansion pack is getting mixed reviews, but it's sort of unavoidable.
The Warriors (Xbox)
Cheesy 70s gang movie made into a Rockstar ultraviolence game. On a quick play it's pretty damn silly, but amusing.
Puzzle Pirates (PC, Mac)
I actually got into this while still in Z├╝rich. It's a very innovative game, a cross between an MMOG and a bunch of Tetris-like puzzle games. Pleasant diversion.
Sniper Elite (PC, Xbox, PS/2)
Sniper simulation. The reviews are pretty poor, but I'm a sucker for this kind of gameplay.
Rag Doll Kung Fu (PC)
Indie game excitement of the year, distributed online via Steam. I haven't seen a review yet, not sure if it's worth my time.
