Top Ten Games of 2010

And we finally have Tom’s list!

Yes, I realize the Official Qt3 GotY thread will cover most of our personal picks, but I thought it would be fun to discuss Tom’s.

The only surprise to me is Split/Second. I know Tom liked it, but I didn’t ralize it clicked with him that well.

Yeah i was waiting for this thread!

My list

  1. Split / Second
  2. Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
  3. Sam & Max: Third Season
  4. Mass Effect 2
  5. Bioshock 2
  6. Alpha Protocol
  7. Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
  8. Stalker: call of Pripyat
  9. Battlefield: Bad Compnay 2
  10. Fallout: New Vegas[/B]

Being honest, it was a bit hard to fill the ten spots. I had 5-6 games that i liked a lot, and the rest were kind of good, but with some bad spots here and there.

edit: Oh look, i forgot of Metro 2033. Put it in number ten or something.

Happy to see Bayonetta up there, and I didn’t realize quite how much Tom loved Lost Planet 2. I may actually have to try it one of these days.

Alan Wake
Pac-Man Championship DX
Super Street Fighter IV
Red Dead Redemption
Just Cause 2
Amnesia: Dark Descent
Transformers: War for Cybertron
Beat Hazard

It would be hard for me to put these in a particular order.

Red Dead Redemption
Fallout: New Vegas
Just Cause 2
Civilization V (I know its disappointing but I still enjoyed the hell out of it)
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Lead and Gold

Can’t think of anything else at the moment. I loved Men of War and Necrovision. Those weren’t released in 2010 but I’d count them among the most fun I had this year.

My list

  1. Bioshock 2 (PC)
  2. Mass Effect 2 (PC)
  3. Minecraft (PC)
  4. Game Dev Story (iOS)
  5. Alpha Protoco (PC)
  6. Pinball FX2 (360)
  7. Fallout New Vegas (PC)
  8. PAC-MAN CE DX (360)
  9. Mafia 2 (PC)
  10. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (PC)

Gamasutra’s list:

I’ll go with:

  1. Nier
  2. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
  3. Super Street Fighter IV
  4. Bayonetta
  5. Pac-Man: Championship Edition DX
  6. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
