Best of 2010!!
WEAK YEAR compared to 2009 in my opinion.... Games like Gran Turismo were a let down, Donkey Kong was weak sauce, Metroid looked only "okay", even Fable sounded pretty bad... The whole Medal of Honor - Bad Company - Call of Duty "modern solider" genre seemed to carry the year, and i am not a fan of those games. And Star Craft 2 is just not a powerhouse in my book like it is to many others, and Im not into World of Warcraft so the PC didn't offer me much. (I cant play Civ 5 on my machine, but that is kind of a strike against that game for me, although Im sure Id love it!)
I think the fact that many of the game of the year lists we will see will have downloadable games like Limbo, Pac man, Super Meat Boy, etc.. on them. That does mean downloadable games are getting better for sure, but it also shows how weak the boxed games were as well. There were so many disappointments and "not as good as the first one" sequels this year.
