Best of 2010

EpicSteve: Best of 2010  
 
Looking at this list is crazy. My 10 favorite games this year are virtually as diverse as you can get. It seems like this year's pattern for me is new experiences. Most of these games offer something I have never done before. Weither it's trick or treating, tearing up the dance floor, or stabbing dudes in the face on Xbox Live, 2010 will go down as the year I had the most new experiences so far. I didn't care for Red Dead Redemption as much as most other people did. The traveling in the game took too long, and I'm simply not into the wild west. From a distance, I can appreciate it but the game isn't my taste. It's always weird making a list like this, for most games are too different to compare. I wouldn't detract someone from buying Need for Speed because I think Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is a more enjoyable release. 
 
I started this list out with about 25 games. From the start, I immediately knew what my top 5 games were. It was more challenging to judge the bottom half. The last games to get cut were Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Toy Soldiers, and Monday Night Combat. However, no other games demanded to be put on my top 10 more than the current listed. 
 
Mass Effect 2 is impossible to beat. Bioware's latest was top notch quality all around. Not many other universes in media feel as real and fleshed out as Mass Effect. After finishing this game I'm willing to shell out cash from a giant encyclopedia about the vast amount of cities, races, characters, and history. I'm stoked about the future of the franchise and if Kelly will go out with my lady Shepard or not.

Good choices for the list, people have been saying great things about Risk Factions, I may have to check it out. And you picked the right answer for number 1, congratulations :D

RISK is a great game, and people still play it on Xbox LIVE. Hell, I might play a game tonight!

Great list

I feel like I'm missing out. I've only played three of these games, and really only put a good amount of time into one of them; Mass Effect 2 being that game. 
 
From what I've heard about these other games though, it seems like they deserve to be on this list. I feel like if I actually played Brotherhood, it would definitely be on my top list too. AC2 was one of the most addictive gaming experiences I've had in a long time, and so satisfying.

If Game Dev Story was just a teensy-bit longer, I probably would of put on my list. I felt like it burnt out too quickly for me, but that might just be me.
 
Great list, though. All of those are great titles, especially Risk: Factions. Such a fun game.

This is pretty much what my top 10 games would have looked like as well. Good to see some Dance Central love, that game is awesome, especially drunk with friends :P.

That is a really great list you've got there.

ME2 on top, like me. Also, I would put dance central on my list as well, had I played it before I made mine.

You think this 2010 was tough, just wait until the end of this year.
