I apologize for ignoring the format, but to categorize these would require more brain energy than I currently have. Here's my list, again, uncategorized:

God of war collection
Fallout 3/new Vegas
Heavy rain (or so I controller didn't work with it)
Assassins creed 2/black flag
Uncharted 2 and 3
The last of us
GTA iv/v
Red dead redemption
Max Payne 3
Skate 2
Spec ops - the line
ICO and in the shadow of the colossus remaster
South park - the stick of truth
Tomb raider
Street fighter 4/vs tekken
mass effect 2
Little big planet series
L.a. noir
Far cry 3
Batman arkham city

Honorable mentions: sleeping dogs, just cause 2, red faction guerilla, ghost recon future soldier,
