As a quick aside, I think 2010 was a pretty disappointing year for games. Started out strong, finished on a flat note. Notable absences on this list include Halo Reach (it didn't live up to the promises made by Bungie, and felt like the same game we've been playing for a decade,) or Red Dead Redemption (as Zeropunctuation's Yahtzee put it, this game is basically a giant toy box in which most of the toys are broken. A good 1/2 of this game's content was not fun at all.) Luckily, 2011 is looking far better.
