Like 5 games on that list I want. Zelda, Diablo 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City and Gears 3. I haven't even beaten Portal 1, so Portal 2 can wait. I do want Duke Nukem as well, but there's no rush for that.

If pre-orders for Gears of War 3 continue to be like this week's, then there's a good chance that it'll shift around 2 million units in its first week.

I am surprised that no one is talking about how well Nascar 2011 is doing on the wii. Over 72,000 preorders and still 7 weeks away.

its tacking well above reach, and black ops did not yet have preorder data 24 weeks before launch. I wouldn't expect reach Americas numbers though as they are bound to slow after the beta.

@snakefisher - Gears of War 3 is tracking way ahead of Halo Reach and Black Ops which had 78,000 and 41,000 pre-orders respectively, during the same number of weeks before launch.

@Trikrakious - Uncharted 3 is just outside the top 20. It is still 30 weeks from launch, so give it time.
