Best of 2010

If 2009 was the year of the multiplayer for me, 2010 brought it back close to home. Only 2 of my final list really consisted of playing a lot of multiplayer, and of those Fifa is a yearly institution. 2010 started out really strong and probably had the most games I've played in a year, yet I still managed to miss out on many I wanted to play (Nier, Bayonetta and Brotherhood spring to mind). Not that the rest of the year had no gems - I had 16 games on here to start with - but considering my number 1 was the first game I played this year, it shows how good that game was.

Notable Mentions

WoW: Catacylsm 
Ok yes, it has sucked me in again. A pretty ridiculous amount of changes to the entire game, nearly all for the better. More engaging quests, better rewards and a whoile lot of streamlining of the grind
Ace Attorney: Miles Edgeworth
I love me some Ace Attorney. Edgeworth never quite grabbed me as much as the previous ones, with the lack of trials removing some of the tension. Had a couple of good cases and some excellent character stuff going on (The Yatagarasu reveal was awesome!), but man did that last case go on for far too long. 

Persona 3 Portable 
Female story and a whole load of additions on one of my favourite RPGs ever? Sure!

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
The usual praise here. Fantastic characters and acting and a well-written story with decent combat/level design. I had the ending sort of spoiled for me beforehand, but that ending left way, way too many plotholes.
Rock Band 3 
If this had been out last year it'd be top 2 or 3. The game's good. Really good. But I havent been able to play as much of it as I'd like.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood 
Considering I had AC2 2nd last year, this should be near the top but I've only managed 3 or 4 hours so far. Shame, because it's fantastic so far.

Pokémon Heart Gold
NOSTAAAAALGIAAAAA. The Pokéwalker is an amazing tool too, I must've took that to work for months on end.
