Whoa, 2010 just flew right by. I don’t even remember what I was doing in January. Actually, I was probably playing games all night as usual. Ahh, good times. My top 10 is quite different as I don’t usually go for AAA titles, but here’s my list.
10- Bioshock 2
I freaking love the Bioshock series ever since I played the first one (when it finally released on the PlayStation 3) and I’ve been hooked on Plasmids ever since. It’s a bit different than the first, but it does have its charm with the whole Big Sister thing and I definitely can’t wait for Bioshock: Infinite.
9- Heavy Rain
I love movies and I love video games. Why not mix the two? This game has a lot going for it because I’m sure a lot of people can appreciate a good mystery and Heavy Rain definitely will keep you guessing until the very last moment. It’s a great game and I would love to see a sequel from Quantic Dream if they ever decide to do such thing. (They better)
8- Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Who doesn’t like going on a killing spree with a wide variety of weapons? You should because it’s a lot of fun especially when you’re playing with someone else (not AI controlled) so you can actually complete objectives. Oh, and amazing boss battles. That’s always a plus.
7- Super Scribblenauts
I simply loved this game because it’s so simple and that the gameplay is really fun and will keep you occupied for a long time. You can even come out with crazy outcomes. For example I summoned god and tried to give him a cupcake, but I accidentally threw it at him and he killed me. It was hilarious!
6- Sonic the Hedgehog 4
I’m not sure why I’m including this game, but it’s Sonic and it’s highly addictive even though lately I tend to think that Sega doesn’t really know what their fans want, but whatever. I like collecting rings and chaos emeralds all the same, besides, Sonic has green eyes now. How futuristic.
5- Pokémon Black
I’ll say it now that I’ll love Pokémon until the day I die no matter how much new Pokémon they add. They always find a way to change a few things and add new features that will have people who have played the first games back to ‘catch em’ all’ Although there are well over 500 Pokémon, I can honestly say that I can name at least 90% of them and I’m proud of it.
4- Bejeweled 3
I can really appreciate a good puzzle game and Pop Cap has done it again with Bejeweled 3. It’s a great time waster that literally anyone can pick up and play. They’ve added a few new interesting modes that are frustratingly fun and I’ll always come back to it for more!
3- God of War III
Oh my god. So much blood! Kratos is meaner than ever. It’s funny, I’m able to complete God of War III on normal, yet I can’t even finish God of war I & II on easy. They’re still on my list of games to finish, but anyway I know the whole story and the game was action packed from beginning to end. I hope there will be some kind of interesting spin-off that I could play as well.
2- Super Meat Boy
At first I was like “Oh another platformer, how nice.” But then I bought it and my eyes bled sitting at my computer trying to get an A+ on ever level. This game is so awesome! I love playing as Meat Boy, Commander Video and Jill. I can’t wait to unlock Steve (Mr. Minecraft) it’ll just get better and better! The Mac version as well as level editor is going to be coming out soon so I’ll be on the lookout since I do most of my gaming on my MacBook Pro until I can get my PC setup.
1-.Super Street Fighter IV
This game has literally taken all my time. I remember when I was like “how do you do a hadouken?” But now I think it’s safe to call myself a pretty good player of the game. It’ll never get old. I can’t wait for the Arcade Edition to be sent as DLC to the console version. Oh, and Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Online edition! I’m a huge Capcom fan!
My top characters in the game would be Dan, Blanka, Seth, and sometimes Vega. Some say they are hard to use characters, but I try my best and sometimes the turnout is great! They just need to put Hugo on Street Fighter IV and I’ll be happy for the rest of my life!
These are my top 10 games of 2010. 2011 is just a few days away and it’s only going to get better from here on out! Happy gaming and happy holidays to all you gamers out there!
