(Newser) – Are you ready to wear out your thumbs this holiday season? Looking at games slated for holiday release, Forbes thinks gamers "crave a lot of morally questionable mayhem."  Here are their top choices:

  • Gears of War 2 (Microsoft): This game promises hordes of aliens to shoot up.
  • Guitar Hero World Tour (Activision): Write your own songs, with drums and singing to add to your axe-grinding.
  • Fall Out 3 (Bethesda): An adventure into post-apocalyptic Washington DC.

  • LittleBigPlanet (Sony): Build your own levels of this race game to share with other players.
  • Far Cry 2 (Ubisoft): A shoot-'em-up mixed with moral dilemmas in the African savannah.
  • Wii Music (Nintendo): Free jazz comes to the Wii in this game that encourages you to experiment.
  • Dead Space (Electronic Arts): This game's Halloween-quality creepiness will give you wintry chills.
