Best of 2010
Pacmanlh: Best of 2010
Pacmanlh: Best of 2010
It outshines its predecessor in so many ways and deserves the title of the best game of 2010.
I know what year this came out in and yes I'm a bad person for doing so.
The first in the series I played because fuck the Playstation, but games like this make me think otherwise. Some of the best visuals I've ever seen in a video game and I played it on an old TV (I have no HD). The fighting is great and while it can be mashy at times, it finds a way to distance itself from that by the combos and variety of weapons.
I know sports games are taboo on this site (except all the crazy arcade ones), but this is by far the best basketball game created. Mothafuckin' Michael Jordan, BOOM! Even though I have come across some weird glitches and corrupt save files that destroyed many hours of game time, I still love it.
Having played all of the previous Halo games, except Halo Wars, I didn't know what to expect. My doubts were answered by Bungie's ability to create great gameplay both on the ground and in space. It has fantastic characters that you feel for and feel a hole in your chest after each of them dies (that's not a spoiler, c'mon). It didn't feel as climatic as previous Halo games, but I still enjoyed the campaign and what little I played of the online stuff.
Is there bad gameplay? Yes. Is there a crazy, ridiculous story that grabs you and demands its respect and attention? Yes. Truthfully, I did not play a second of the game, but having watched both Endurance Runs I can justify this inclusion.
Is it right to justify comparisons with GTA IV? Yes. Will I keep asking questions like these and my descriptions of my picks? Yes, and fuck you. I played some on my cousin's 360 and while a first impression had me skeptical about the overall package, it delivers on every level of gaming needed to make a classic. Yes, high praise but not a high ranking. Only because I didn't play enough of it to push the other games out of the way (although maybe soon I will).
I know it came out last year, but I didn't get it until this year. Nuff said.
Good game but my favorite Call of Duty game is still the first Modern Warfare.
Remember what it was supposed to be and not what it really was.
