Hey, that's my screenshot of Minecraft! There's actually an explanation for that situation... but it should be obvious enough from looking it full size. And why haven't there been more screenshots uploaded since? That disappoints me, but whatever.
 
If Jeff doesn't want to play Red Dead Redemption, that's his choice. There are numerous games I've played for a bit and then just set aside to play later, where later ends up turning into never. Whatever.

Another Giant Bomb vote for Mass Effect 2, whoo!

I still think Halo Reach should have been where Black Ops is but I have to give Jeff props for his number 1 pick.

JEFF, I know it is your perfect god-given right to put or not put anything you want on your own personal top ten list..but nows my chance to strike at you from the internet for not feeding that cat in the Personna 4 Endurance run  21 months, 13 days, some odd hours and minutes ago. 
Or the chances you had after that. 
 
Die Jeff die! Bite the big one!
 
Well...I don't see you biting the big one! 
 
Damn, Jeff  must not care         :(..

Compared to the previous AI combat tactic of "Stack 30 units on a single tile", it is still far better.

@Dad_Is_A_Zombie: he never played red dead in the first place, this is their personal list. Why would he put a game up there he didn't play?

@RE_Player92:  Well, I can agree that awkward was probably the wrong word. I'm not sure what the right term would be. I just meant that it's um, unique? I'm not sure. I didn't mean to say that there was anything strange or inherently wrong with the fact (which I guess is exactly what awkward would imply. Oops).
Edited by RE_Player1
@Fjordson: One, I'm not enraged at all. I'll take a note out of your book, I couldn't care less about a random person on the internet. Two, yes it would be crazy putting a game on your personal list that you haven't played but you see it as awkward not putting Red Dead on the list?

 Good lists, though Jeff's total disregard for Red Dead continues to be awkward.

I'm still baffled by your first statement. Yeah real awkward Jeff didn't play every single game that got a high score on metacitic and some people around him liked a lot... That's enough from me. My New Years resolution, don't comment on anything on the internet ever again unless it's something light hearted like the GB wow guild etc. I'm done talking about people's tastes especially people I have never met before in my life. Have a Happy New Year and we can both agree that video games.... fucking rock!!!!!

He didn't like the game.
Not exactly. He didn't play the game. That's like saying you dislike a book you've never read or a movie you haven't seen. "
It's a reasonable thing to do. I hate horror films. I don't need to watch any of The Ring or Friday The 13th to know that I don't like those films. Likewise, I don't need to spend even ten minutes with, say, Silent Hill to know that it wouldn't deserve a place on any of my Top Ten lists. Red Dead is, apparently, easily identifiable by Jeff as something that isn't up his alley. Evidently, he doesn't need to play it for any great length of time -- or even at all, possibly -- to know this.
 
It is possible to have an opinion about something you haven't experienced and, more importantly, it's possible to have a valid opinion about something you haven't experienced. Red Dead is my GOTY, but I don't begrudge Jeff for not being a fan of it. (Actually, Jeff and I are often opposed. I don't understand his dislike of Earthworm Jim and Team Fortress 2 either, but he's entitled to it.) "
Well sure, but that's a general sort of thing. You hate horror films. You wouldn't say you hate something you've never seen.
 
And like I said to the other poster, I really don't care if the game isn't on his list. I wasn't expecting it to be there.

I'll tell you what I was expecting: Picross 3D! Jeff seems to love that game in a big way.

@RE_Player92: Whoa, someone's flying way off the rails here. I'll try to address the small amount of that wall of text that was at least somewhat coherent.
 
As far as judging a game, it really varies I guess. Usually a few hours of solid gameplay I suppose. Depends on how cutscene heavy it is. As for the rest of that wall o' text, um yeah, definitely a Trek man myself. Never been into Star Wars. Love me some prime Captain Kirk or Picard.
 
 You do realize that Jeff said on his Twitter that RDR is in his stack of backlog games to play, right? Not sure why you think he's closed the book on it or come to some sort of solid conclusion. He simply didn't play it. I'm sorry if I enraged you by pointing out that fact. I'm also not sure why you're convinced that I'm angry about RDR not being on his list. I knew it wouldn't be. Why would someone put a game they didn't play on a list of their favourite games? That's crazy talk.

How long does it take in order for you to realize if you like a game or not? 2 hours? 4 hours? Seeing the ending of the game? Getting all the achievements? He played enough of it to know he didn't like the Wild West aspect of the game because he himself doesn't like the Wild West that much, he has said he prefers the GTA urban setting more than the West. Also keeping things factual? Is that not Jeff's personal list for 2010? Is he lying when he says he enjoyed Mass Effect 2?  
Fact: Jeff doesn't like Red Dead 
Fact: Jeff's personal top ten is to show Jeff's favourite games of 2010 
Fact: Jeff likes Star Trek over Star Wars 
Now those facts might not line up with your tastes and you know what... THAT'S FINE. But than again you don't really care right? Than why would you comment in the first place? Because you do care and you find it weird that Jeff doesn't like a game you and others like. I'm not defending Jeff at all, his opinion is his and his alone, I'm just saying don't tell someone what to like or not like or how they can form an opinion. I can judge a game by the title screen and the first 5 minutes if I want to and if that doesn't line up with you than who cares.

@Doogie2K: Alberta is Canada's Texas Lite. Calgary Stampede makes me want to punch fools almost as much as Burning Man.  
 
And I was kind of suprised that I didn't have Mass Effect 2 on my list, but it just didn't have a huge emotional impact on me like the rest of my list. 
 
For the people hating on Jeff for not putting RDR on his list because he didn't play it - I would prefer he do that instead of saying he played it when he didn't. Adversely, I have not played Gran Turismo 5 but I will still complain about the loading times and how it misses the point of racing games until the cows come home.

Its is personal Top 10 and he never played RDR since he doesn't like the Wild West. If you don't agree with hes list then you know what? No one cares. Thats what he thinks is the best games of 2010 and you can just go off and make you own personal list.
Posted by Doogie2K

Real shame about Boyes being a Canucks fan. Guess it's to be expected, though. 
 
On the other hand, we can still be best buds because I fucking hate Stampede and all the drugstore cowboys that come out of the woodwork then. (The hot chicks in the cowboy hats and the jean shirts tied six inches above their waistline can stay.) I wore a fedora during opening day last year in protest.

That Boyes knows how to make a list son.
Gerstmo's is pretty solid too.

Posted by RE_Player1
@Fjordson: He experienced enough that he could get an opinion. They don't have to beat every game they do a quicklook on to know if it's complete garbage. I don't have to watch every single Family Guy episode to know that I don't like Family Guy. Jeff didn't like something that you and other people did, get over it. I liked Sonic 4 but the guys hated it, who cares.

@RE_Player92: I'm not sure why you keep mentioning opinion, I'm stating facts.  It's impossible to have an opinion on something you haven't experienced.
Posted by RE_Player1
@Fjordson: You can call it whatever you want I will continue to see it as Jeff just didn't like the game therefore it wasn't on his personal list. I can't believe I got sucked in into arguing about someone else's opinion.

Mad respect for Whitta, and his list, which I share mostly. He will always be one of the very few down to earth and honest to god game journalists I've had the pleasure of following, reading and hearing, since the early days of PCG.

Posted by Fjordson
@RE_Player92: I'm not sure you understand how little he actually played it. You're speaking in terms of hours. Looking at his achievements he spent about 20 minutes playing the single-player. Again, I really don't care if he ever plays it, but let's call a spade a spade here.

Sorry Jeff, a Top Ten list with Red Dead Redemption missing is simply incorrect in my opinion. At least you got Mass Effect 2 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood right.

He played a bit of it and didn't get sucked in. I bought Bionic Commando, played it for 2 hours and put it down because I didn't like it. I'm not going to torture myself just to beat it. He didn't have to review it, played it on his own time, and found it boring. I don't have to play some MMOs for 100's of hours to know I don't like them.

Yay for Jeff! Surprised he chose Assassin's over Red Dead as they are both open world... and Red Dead is a far better game. Maybe I'm just playing Brotherhood the wrong way?

Never expected Jeff to find a place for AC:Brotherhood on his list. 
 
Nevertheless, this keeps me more eager to see how the game will turn out when it hits the PC platform in 2011.

He didn't like the game. I'm sure everyone has had that one game where you can see it is a quality product but it just doesn't click with you. An example for me this year would be Black Ops. I've played it at a friends house and can see it's still a great game but I just can't bring myself to play it for more than 10 minutes at a friend's house or even purchase it.

Well, to put that into put that into perspective -- my favorite game of 2010 was Blur. Yet I'm under no illusions that it was one of the best 10 games of the enitre year. My favorite? Yup! One of the best? Nah.
