And I'm proud to be an American...because we get a three-day weekend this week thanks to Labor Day this upcoming Monday. Let's all take a second and thank President Grover Cleveland for giving us this mini-vacation, which marks the end of summer, and the beginning of football.
We at GameRant wanted to take this opportunity to keep you in the loop on what games we've decided will take up the majority of our time this weekend. Loved ones and BBQ's be damned, it's about gaming this weekend. We've got a lot of writers with a lot of different tastes, so take a look.
- T.J. Lauerman - NCAA Football 11, Madden NFL 11 and StarCraft II
- Phillipe Bosher - Red Dead Redemption
- Matt Bowman - Metroid: Other M and Valkyria Chronicles 2
- Christian Spicer - Mario Galaxy 2, Mega Man 10 and MGS: Peace Walker
- Jason Weissman - Red Dead Redemption, Left 4 Dead 2, DA: Awakenings, and a mystery game I can't talk about

That's a lot of games, not to mention that most of us will be definitely getting online together to play Modern Warfare 2. If you didn't know what you were playing this weekend, hopefully we gave you some good ideas.
After a long weekend of gaming, let us not forget the great games that are coming out Tuesday: NHL 11, NHL Slapshot, Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2, and R.U.S.E. just to name a few.
Have a great weekend of fun and be sure to follow us on Twitter @GameRant, and let us know what you're playing in the comments.
P.S. - Many Canadians also have off Monday for Labour Day. Any evidence that this is related to the American Labor Day is totally circumstantial.
