GoW 3 does have the best character acting and development of any game on the market. I mean, when Dom's wife died in GoW 2 to the emotional scene with Cole in the beginning of GoW 3 at the supermarket. I'd like to see call of duty or halo do that. And that doesn't even take into account the action and suspense the game add during combat. All around these games are some of the decade (Behind Fallout 3 and Half-Life 2, of course). A definite must buy.
