Best of 2010

project343: Best of 2010

List items

  • Listen, I adore Bioware. And Mass Effect is my current favourite series. Been following this series since the initial trailer debut of the first title. For me, there is no competition.

  • Loved the 'page-turning' quality of character interaction. Very gripping. And the action was also a treat between these emotionally-charged scenes.

  • Contains the most memorable 8-minute experience of 2010, by far. No spoilers needed, but easily the most flawless narrative experience of the year.

  • An emotional, atmospherical roller coaster. It doesn't stop until the very end, with a leap, a whirl, and the final bit of light at the end of the tunnel. When you hit that point, you take a long gasp of air and smile. A smile for the creative perfection glowing from this game, and a smile for the satisfying conclusion to a great journey you just ended.

  • So mindmeltingly great, I had to make up a word to describe it. Most memorable 8-hour experience of 2010, by far.

  • If Mindcraft had a slash-played (/played), I'd probably cry.

  • World of Warcraft unfortunately has a slash-played (/played), and that number makes me cry with shame. Wonderful experience that deserves to be called a fully-fledged 'game.'

  • I miss the feeling of a creative, new Zelda experience. Recent entries in the series have, arguably, just given me a taste of that feeling. With a ton of 'fan-servicey' sides. And then there was Darksiders. One word: yay!

  • Probably my most recent addition to this mental list. Finished it only a few hours ago. Perhaps a tad too fresh to move it any higher, but I loves me some Assassin's Creed. Great multiplayer, wonderful singleplayer story. Can't say I'm a fan of the ending--but they've done this to me twice before now. Oh well, still fantastic.

  • Dude, it's Starcraft.
