Best of 2010
You know what...2010 was a pretty good year for gaming. And while I may not have gotten to play that many games, my list was still pretty difficult to complete. There were a lot of great games that I played that didn't make it on to this list.
Instead of just doing a straight list of honourable mentions, I wanted to give a few details as to why some of these games (all ones that I played, but may not have finished) didn't make it.
- The major game that is left off this list is Super Mario Galaxy 2. It's a game that I really liked, but one that I just can't bring myself to finish. I don't know what it is...I just think that after the first Galaxy I was pretty much done with the formula...or maybe it's because I'm just not that great at 3D platformers. I don't know.
- Donkey Kong Country Returns was a game that I picked up right at launch, played through the first world...and haven't picked up since. Why? I don't like the "overuse" of motion controls. I don't like that most actions are relegated to shaking the controller. I wish I could use the classic controller or a gamecube controller. It's as simple (and petty) as that.
- Super Meat Boy: I bought it in a heart beat...then found out it was hard. Too hard for me to beat, so I don't feel right about putting it in my top 10 even if it is a great game.
