Hmmm....I think Blockbuster has their top 10 list a bit wankered up. Shows:
1 Call of Duty 4
2 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 3 Assassin's Creed
4 Halo 3
5 Mass Effect
6 Guitar Hero III
7 BioShock
9 Battlefield: Bad Company
10 Ninja Gaiden 2
I think that is a bit more realistic than what blockbuster is showing. Blockbuster in my opinion is like a used car salesman talking about which computer company is awesome. Sure they use computers, but do they really have a feel on what the public likes? I know they rent out a lot, but sales, not rentals are what counts. Just because you have 50 guitar heros in stock, and only 1 or 2 mass effects in, doesn't mean that more ppl love guitar hero when thats all you have stock of to rent because the 2 mass effects are

Be interesting if you put up a list of your own you feel is worthy of a top ten list...but you can't borrow my 360 to do
