Vlodd: Best of 2010
There is a reason for which choosing Mass Effect 2 for Game of the Year is cliche: everything about it is outstanding. Between this and Dragon Age: Origins, Bioware has this generation of RPGs locked down.
Take everything about the music and gameplay in Donkey Kong Country Returns and multiply it by 1.5, then add some of the funniest humor I have ever seen in a video game and you will have Super Meat Boy.
An amazing soundtrack, beautiful visuals, ingenious (and sometimes malicious) level design, and a tremendous sense of nostalgia propel this game into my top 3. Retro Studios can do no wrong, and I cannot wait to see what they create next.
A huge portion of this game entails doing the same things repeatedly, but it somehow remains so much fun that Assassin's Creed is quickly becoming one of my favorite series.
The only RTS game that I had played since the days of Warcraft II and the original Starcraft was Warcarft III until this game was released. I don't game online, but the campaign was the most enjoyable and creative that I have experienced from a game in this genre. The worst thing about this game is how difficult it will make waiting for Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void.
The level design and colorful visuals in this game kept me entertained for the entire time that it took me to collect all 240 stars.
The only way to get an accurate idea of the amazing atmosphere that this game creates is to play it.
God of War III is another game that did little in the way of innovation. But the visuals were enough to keep me enjoying the sometimes-repetitive action.
Darksiders may not be original, but it's still incredibly enjoyable. The ending alone is enough to earn it a spot on my list, and I cannot wait for the sequel.
I've never been crazy about Pac-Man, but this game is too addicting to leave off of this list.
