Each holiday season, a torrent of new PC games floods the market. This year is no different, although publishers seem to be spacing things out a little more than they have previously. Nevertheless, there are numerous titles due out before the end of the year, most of which are sequels or expansions to existing properties. Which one are you anticipating the most? We've come up with a list of choices that covers most of the major releases slated to be released before January. Feel free to add anything we missed in the comments.

In last week's poll, we tackled the subject of music, and more specifically, where you buy it—or if you do at all. As it turns out, 42% of those who voted don't buy their music. Yarrr. Of those who do, 16% purchase CDs online or via mail order, and another 12% pick up discs at retail stores. 11% download MP3s from Amazon, while only 9% go the iTunes route. 8% get their music online but use another service, and 2% stubbornly cling to vinyl.
