It's that time of year again. Days are shorter, the weather is colder, folks are putting up decorations and prepping for the holiday shopping rush, and a new batch of games is coming out. Well, unless you live in the southern hemisphere, in which case you're probably enjoying long, warm days right now. But the games thing still applies.
Point is, we're facing a flood of exciting new titles this season, and we're wondering which ones our readers are most eagerly anticipating. So, we've put up a shiny new poll with a list of some of the hottest new and upcoming PC games, from Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 to Futuremark's
3DMark: The Game Shattered Horizon, which apparently ain't bad at all.

Our last poll was all about which TR readers are switching to Windows 7 and when. By now, it looks like over half of our respondents are running Win7 already. (A substantial number were already using the OS on launch day, we might add.) Around 13% plan to wait more than a month after the launch, and 9% will play it safe and wait for the first service pack. Meanwhile, 9% of voters don't plan to upgrade at all, and another 6% don't run Windows to begin with.
