For me there are some absolutes, some probably and some maybes

Must buys
Zelda Twiilight Princess
Soul Calibur III
FF Dirge of Cerberus (it's listed on ebgames as November, hopefully that's true)
Megaman X Collection
Metroid Prime Hunters (which would require me to buy a DS)
Mario Kart DS
Castlevania DS

Probably
Castlevania Curse of Darkness
Viewtiful Joe DS
Killer 7

Maybe
True Crime 2 (I enjoyed the first one, and this is supposed to be alot longer)
Prince of Persia 3
Tony Hawk American Wasteland
Super Mario Brothers DS

There's just too much I want for me to even THINK about getting an Xbox 360 this year, maybe next year.

Pretty sure they are all early 2006, at least. Grandia 3 is definately the most promising game S-E has shown this gen, IMO.

Must Buys:
-MotoGP 3 (Xbox)
-Castlevania DS (DS)
-Metroid Prime Hunters (DS) - I keep forgetting about this game
-Super Mario Brothers (DS)
-Sega Hits Phantasy Star Trilogy (PS2) - Includes part 1, 2, and 4. Only $20. How could you NOT buy this?

We'll see:
-Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (Xbox version, just for 480p)
-Soul Calibur III (PS2) - This is more of a "probably" than a "we'll see".
-Full Auto (Xbox360)
-Metal Slug 4 & 5 (Xbox) - Only if they allow diagonals this time. MS3 had crap controls
-Burnout Revenge (Xbox)
-Shadow the Hedgehog (Xbox .. maybe Gamecube)
-Sonic Rush (DS)
-Nintendogs - Infected Pit Bull and Friends (DS)

Highly Unlikely:
-Zelda Twinkle Toes (Gamecube)
-Conker: Live and Reloaded (Xbox)
-Katamari Damacy 2 (PS2) - I've had enough for this lifetime

What? No love for Roller Coaster Tycoon 3's expansion pack "soaked"? That's probably the only thing I will buy. Possibly Capcom's arcade collection when it comes out. Planning pretty much on focusing on next gen stuff for a bit now, games for the pc as they pop up.

Oh it is highly unlikely that I'd be amazed. While the Zelda's for the NES didn't impress me much (especially since I had played Golvellius for the SMS first), I really enjoyed the SNES adventure. I had a great time using the fold-up map that it came with. What a fantastic game! "Zelda is good" I thought. So then I got an N64 (first mistake) and a few games for it. When it came out, I received "Zelda Ocarina of Time" for Christmas. I heard so many great things about this game and I was excited and immediately started playing (second mistake). I played and played, with continuously decreasing interest in the game due to its inability to keep me entertained. I was in some dungeon, I can't remember where, but I suddenly became EXTREMELY bored with the game and could not power up the game without becoming queasy.

Fast forward to when Wind Waker comes out. A friend buys it, and I like the graphics, but the gameplay looks EXCEEDINGLY boring, especially with all that sailing (also I did not like the water graphics, but whatever). It looked like it played just like that lame Ocarina game! Pass!

Then out of the blue, somebody PMs or e-mails me codes to put in at Nintendo's web site to get that free Zelda bonus disc. I do it and the disc arrives shortly thereafter. I put it in and have about 5 minutes worth of fun with Zelda 1, about 8 minutes worth of fun with Zelda 2, and absolutely no fun whatsoever with Zelda 3 (because it's not on there, bastards!). I decide to try Ocarina again with the amazingly enhanced graphics. No dice. The game still sucks. Then I try that Majora's Mask game. It was a bit more interesting that the Ocarina game, but I still passed out due to boredom within the first 15 minutes or so. I also tried the Wind Waker demo. Nice graphics but BORING!

Now the new Zelda is coming out, and Link wears some REALLY fruity clothes in it. One garmet is a piece of colored cloth that covers one side of his gut... that's it! WTF? I don't care about horseback riding (of which there will probably be as much of that as Wind Waker's sailing) and I don't care about fishing. If I fished in a Shenmue game it would probably be fun, but Nintendo just has a way of making games seem really... well... not very fun. It's just something about them that they put in their games that I can't explain. I have no idea why everyone gets hard-on's for Zelda games. Or Mario games (though the one for the DS looks pretty cool). Dontcha get sick of playing the same crap again and again with a new coat of paint?

If you're gonna get obsessed with a game, at least get obsessed with a good game like Space Harrier.
