Default What was YOUR game of the year?

It's almost the end of the year, gaming websites are announcing the best games of the year and all that.

What were the games that kept you engaged and you consider to be the best games of 2010?


For me, It's probably between Call of Duty: Black Ops because I'm going to be playing that for ages and Bioshock 2.

I'v played Bioshock 2 multiple times and the story just never bores me. It's great.

Black Ops... for obvious reasons.



Another game that was really under appreciated this year was Singularity. That was fantastic.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is my pick for game of the year, a fine refinement of the formula found in its predecessor. While it lacks the freedom that earlier Mario games possessed, you can't really complain about 30+ hours of tight control and innovative course platforming. Far and away the best platformer this generation. 8/10.

Honorable mentions of Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Bayonetta, and Starcraft II.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies.

Best DS game ever, even above Pokémon.

In Japan: Pocket Monsters Black
In general: I had my eye on Halo Reach, Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Tough choice but I gave it Halo Reach. An amazing way for Bungie to go out. The campaign was very suspenseful and it brought me to the edge of my seat especially during the final two missions. The multi-player is phenomenal. You have a decent amount of playlists to enter. The maps may be lacking but they do their job well in certain game types. Sword Base in particular is a great map for Multi team Oddball and King of the Hill. The battles tend to get pretty hectic. And for those that are creative, there is Forge World. A map on it's own and pretty humongous clocking in at 1 hour to traverse by foot. It's a great sandbox to create your own custom maps. You're imagination and the number of objects at your disposal are really your only limits. Making what is known as "Forge Art" is another fun thing to do in forge world. That's why I Reach is my GOTY. >.>

Modern Warfare 2, even if it was released it in late 2009. I played it for more than half of 2010, and enjoyed it.

If the game doesn't have to be released this year, Legend of Zelda- Twilight Princess.

Finally... FINALLY got my hands on this game. AND IT WAS AMAZING. I honestly think it trumps Ocarina in nearly every way. *quickly raises flame shield* Close runner up was Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

And if it does have to be released this year, Rune Factory 3. I haven't beaten it yet, but I'm adoring it.

Pokemon Silver, Black Ops, All the Final Fantasies, and Halo: Reach.

Edit: Oh! Masami brought up another contestant for Game of the Year! Starcraft II. Epic story with epic units and epic multiplayer. Definitely the best RTS of the year.

Mass Effect 2, The Sims 3, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.

All-in-all though, I agree with Spike's choice, Red Dead Redemption was pretty gnarly.

Definitely Mass Effect 2 or Red Dead Redemption. Haven't had a chance to play AC: Brotherhood or New Vegas yet, though, so I suppose those could still be contenders.

Black Ops was decent, but not quite GotY material. The campaign was fun, but predictable, and while the multiplayer is a step up from MW2, it still has its flaws.

You haven't played many games in this decade then, have you? Especially since it's the worst COD. And I've played every single one. Cod4 EASILY destroys it.

Starcraft II.

This with the addition of Black Ops and Borderlands.

har har har.
I'm not a fanboy, I'm actually anti-cod(halo/CS <3). However, being in a cod clan kinda enforces you to play it quite often.
the online is terrible, the napalm strike is far FAR too glitchy, it takes far far too many bullets to kill a person for the cod play style. they tried to slow down the play and make it more tactical, which they utterly failed at.
