Dude. I hated the first game. Could not stand the first game. Was enraged by the first game. But, yo, this one's pretty great.
Only the second true adventure game I've EVER played. I had a lot of fun and laughed out loud so much while playing this game.
One of the better Wii experiences I've had. Multiplayer will provide hours of chaotic and hilarious fun.
The AI is borked in this game. And still kind of is in the new one. But, in terms of story and level design I prefer this game's campaign over BC2's, by far. Characters are super memorable, as well.
Took me awhile to finish this one, but man, does this game get crazy awesome towards the end. It went directions I never would have guessed. Buildin' sweet ass goo towers never gets old either. I feel like, at some point, I need to play "videogame matchmaker" and introduce this game to an architectural engineer.
Campaign kind of pales in comparison to the first game. Still some fun dialogue and laughable jabs at Modern Warfare 2. Multiplayer is where it's at, though. Probably the most fun I've ever had with an online FPS.
Really fun Indie game. Finished it within an hour. Well worth the money. This game blends Action and Tower Defense mechanics in a really interesting way.
First Silent Hill game ever. Had to play this one after hearing GB's GOTY 09 Podcast. This game is so good. I had some trouble with the nightmare sequences but it was all worth it for the story. DID NOT SEE THAT TWIST COMING.
Played my 2nd playthrough w/ commentary this year. Cannot wait for the sequel. This game is a lot of fun the second time around.
Still having a hard time believing this game was made by one dude. So much fun. Especially if you're into old 2D metroid/castlevania games. Really great/funny characters and story as well. I'm still working on getting all of the different endings.
There's no way I'll ever finish all of the different modes in this game. But, it's such a great time waster. I need to convince some XBL friends to buy it so I can compare scores.
Yo, this game is some technicolor-ass twin stick type of shit. It is also addictive and hell of re-playable. GET YOURSELF SOME GEOMETRY WARS 2!!!!
Man, this game is too awesome for words. One of the most gripping game narratives that I've experienced in a long while. I just finished it and already kind of want to run through it again as a dwarf warrior. I'm definitely not prepared for another 40 hours of Dragon Age right now, but someday it will happen.
This game further solidifies the fact that Mass Effect is most definitely one of my favorite videogame series of all time. The sequel doesn't disappoint. There are a few hitches and things from the first game I wish they hadn't removed, but man, what a great sci-fi epic. Can't wait to go back and play through as a renegade.
I grabbed this one for ten bones in the bargain bin sometimes last year. I have mixed feelings about stealth games, but this one was pretty enjoyable. Alot of cool, tense moments were for the most part pretty fun. But, Double Agent still had some of that trial and error that keeps me away from most games of this genre. This is the first Splinter Cell game that I've played to completion. I'm still pretty interested in playing through Conviction.
Man, Bayonetta definitely doesn't disappoint in the insanity department. At no point did I fully understand what the hell was going on with the story, but still managed to enjoy every bit of this verrrry japanese action game. I'm no action game enthusiast, but Bayonetta has one of the deepest and most approachable combat systems I've ever experienced. Cutscenes are amazing, too. Some really memorable one-liners.
RDR is the first Rockstar game I've ever played to completion. Those dudes really know how to craft some characters and tell a really interesting story. After 20 hours, I'm still looking forward to completing a few more sidequests and trying out multiplayer.
Probably the best licensed game out there. It's nothing groundbreaking, but if you're looking for a solid shooter and have a special place in your heart for robots in disguise, WFC is where it's at. I hope this one gets a sequel.
Kind of weird to play this game after playing Bayonetta. But, it was cool to note the similarities between the two. I think I may enjoy the flow of DMC combat more.
LIMBO is a really challenging and unique puzzle/platformer. It's fairly short, making the $15 price tag a little worrisome, but this game is packed with personality, really fun puzzle-solving, and amazing art. I can see this game becoming my new Portal. Short, sweet, and worth coming back to over and over again.
Alan Wake was an excellent psychological thriller with surprisingly awesome combat. I still need to read a wiki to figure out what it all means, but man was that an interesting story. There are some really memorable characters and great atmosphere in this game.
Took me awhile to finish this one. I played about half way through it last year then put it down for whatever reason. I started the game completely over this year and enjoyed every minute of it. Nuts and Bolts is what a Lego videogame always should have been. There's still a ton of content left even after the final world. I can definitely see myself going back and collecting some extra jiggys eventually.
Kind of ashamed I didn't get around to playing the original FEAR until 2010. This is probably one of my favorite FPS games of all time. I've never played a game with better AI.
So I didn't really plan to play this game, because of my immense disappointment with the first one. But, the sequel definitely expands upon the whole Fable thing in alot of good ways. I almost quit about an hour in, but town management, good humor, and pretty interesting combat kept me playing 'til the end.
Had alot of fun playing through Enslaved in a weekend. This game definitely has its issues, but Trip, Monkey, and Pigsy are some of my favorite game characters this year.
I really enjoyed the campaign mode and the multiplayer, though I haven't played much of it, seems as feature-rich and improved upon as previous Halo sequels. It's going to be interesting to see both, where the Halo series goes now that Bungie is done, and what Bungie manages to come up with next.
So, super meat boy is one difficult-ass game. But, it's also one extremely well-designed game. The charm, tight controls, and sheer content to price ratio is enough to outweigh the amount of self-loathing it will take to beat it.
Darksiders is Zelda for the modern era. This game doesn't really do anything new, but it draws inspiration from a lot of other games to form a polished and varied action-adventure experience.
Dumb cut-scenes and characters aside, this is a really excellent and worthwhile arcade game. I played the entire game co-op, occasionally re-playing older levels to beef up my arsenal, and had so much fun. Guardian of Light is the perfect blend of action and puzzle. I highly suggest finding a reliable co-op partner and barreling through the adventure in a weekend or two.
This game is everything CE was, times a billion, and totally turned on its head. Luring a whole ton of ghosts into a conga line, snagging a power pellet, and chomping through every last one of them will never get old. Thank you, Namco. Please keep making Pac-Man more and more awesome than it already is.
