2010 looks to be another exciting year for game development. Here are the top games The Gamer Report has on its radar that has the most potential to make an impact on the gaming industry and on gamers in 2010.
Gran Turismo 5 no question. Deformation damage. WRC NASCAR 950 cars I mean come on.
You listed games we have all seen before. GT5 is just like PGR, just like Forza, etc. How many realistic racing sims and rally racing games do we really need? It gets old after a while.
He listed one game
Is this serious? That's a bunch of multiplats. Where's all the glorious PS3 exclusives like GT5, GOWIII, WKC, MAG, Heavy Rain, Modnation Racers (I think it's early 2010) etc?. He put the 360's one exclusive there but where's all the PS3?
Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3 are spot on, most anticipated games of 2010, picking them up on PS3. I think next years gonna be my multiplatform year, out of all confirmed 2010 PS3 exclusives I'm not terribly interested in any of them.
are you the same notorious PS3 hater?
If you think that Max Payne 3 and Blur are gonna impact the industry more than GT5 and GOW3 and Heavy Rain, have a facepalm from me. Your welcome
There is no question, the author of this article is a xbox only owner. How can you put in that list Dantes Inferno (a Gow2 ripoff) and forget about GoW3. Article should be renamed to "Top games to make an impact in 2010 on the XBOX360" and remove the PS3 tag.
Yep, when you see someone listing a bunch of multiplats, you know they're 360 biased.
A-HEM! Dante's Inferno is a multiplat game. I think it's obvious why this list is missing the PS3 exclusives; it's a 360-centric site.
·GOW III ·HEAVY RAIN ·MAG, not for being a FPS (DO'H!), just 256 players at once is GREAT ·Gran Turismo always DELIVER
What's sad is that Dante's Inferno is also for PS3 owners so why treat it like it's only on 360? Besides, from gameplay vids it looks like they literally are copy and pasting GOW.
It's not surprising PS3 fanboys only list PS3 games. I agree with the list all these games look epic, fun, fresh, new. PS3 fanboys seem to have read too much into this. No one said biggest impact in 2010. I agree these games are not known to be super hyped and will make an impact, making names for themselves. 1.10 he could have just as easily said a number of 360 games if that were true.
I'm quite sure the title should be "THE MOST UNNOTICED GAMES OF 2010"! Where is: Gran Turismo 5 (#1 must buy) Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Best FPS ever, i'm in the beta) Halo Reach (I'm a huge Halo fan Halo 1,2 and 3 ODST is crap!) Agent (Its "Rockstar North" so its good) God Of War 3 Heavy Rain( MUST BUY) Final Fantasy XIII MAG (I'm getting BFBC2 instead)
was this suppose to be a list of the biggest games of 2010 because if it was then its pathetic.
You forgot to list: Race track creator/editor Day/Night/Weather cycle Over 1,000 cars (not 900 like you said) Over 65 unique track locations, unlike Forza 3's mere 20 unique tracks Fully detailed car interiors, unlike Forza 3's low polygon, no texture interiors Etc.
terrible list imo games that will make an impact: heavy rain alan wake gran turismo 5 halo reach MAG
Obviously not that terrible if I listed Alan Wake just as you did. I should have mentioned Heavy Rain, that will be a good one too. I really enjoyed Indingo Prophecy. This post is obviously going to be touchy depending on your level of fanboyism. We don't even know what Halo: Reach is yet, so how could it be on my list? Just because it's Halo?
nothin but da truth
you put your opinion out there expect people to fire back etc. you seem like you didn't expect people to say your list is garbage which i wont but you didn't name any real games per that title except alan wake and yet no one knows anything about it whatsoever except what it may be like. but man you chastise the guy on your site for laughing at your list and this guy. hey news flash you think your opinion is important enough to blog or whatever about it dont be so nancy when people go agansit it. common internet rules.
Heavy Rain The Last Guardian God of War III Gran Turismo 5 Agent MAG Those are the only games that will make an impact in 2010.
You forgot one: -Mass Effect 2 -Fable 3 -Halo: Reach -Splinter Cell Conviction -Alan Wake
Wow, I find it so ironic that PS3 fanboys call out other fanboys. You guys are hypocrites. I'm not really into the whole "my console is better than your console" thing, since I own both and like both. But I will say this, the biggest selling games of 2010 are going to be Gran Turismo 5 and Halo Reach. The sales of those two games combines will exceed the sales of any other high-profile game in 2010. I guarantee it.
Is this a joke?. GT5 will own all.
That remains to be seen. Forza 3 holds the crown right now my friend. Will be pretty hard to beat it.
LMAO!!!. Froza is for gamers that don't know anything about real cars.
Forza 3's sales is not good.
forza 3 has the crown because its keeping racing fans busy until GT5 comes out. once GT5 is released..well...all I say is it might be the best selling game in '10 To miss GT5 from that list is fine, but to show WHY you omited it from that list is sad.
i dont even think that you can compare forza3 to GT5! GT5 is on a whole other league. im not saying it will be better or more real than forza as a racing game sine we are talking about the impact it might have and not the quality. everyone who did play console games on past gen consoles KNOWS GT. and it doesnt even matter which those pple played as core games. heck i usually HATE racing games EXCEPT of GT. ive played the old versions and i look forward what GT5 will deliver. not having GT5 as a game which will make an impact but instead blur is just ridculous. you obviously have no idea how many people are awaiting and anticipating that GT5 is finally released... srsly the article about GT extend times is so true: GT was made from the perspective of loving CARS, not games. in the end thats one of the franchises which had and probably will have the biggest impact of a videogame influencing nonvideogamers (if they dont totally screw up GT5 which is quite unlikely). that alone makes it THE game with THE impact in 2010.
The competition will come down to Halo Reach and GT5. Two different genres, but both sales beasts. I predict GT5: 9 million. Halo Reach: 7 million.
Isnt dantes inferno multiplat? And why isnt gow 3 there?
It is. But 360 owners haven't been fortunate enough to have a title like God of War. It's not like God of War will ever be released on the 360 so this is the next best thing.
no heavy rain no mass effect 2 no final fantasy 13 no god of war 3 just to name a few my crystal ball is in the shop for repairs but I agree with many others here, that list can easily be considered mediocre to many
I enjoyed the first Mass Effect. But I don't think it was as good as everyone made it out to be, so the inevitable sequel did not make my list. I don't feel like stopping the gameplay again every time I want my AI partners to perform an action. It got way too repetitive. Final Fantasy is not the type of game that appeals to me.
You make it sound as though this is a list of game that you like. If you're going to make a list of games that will make an impact it shouldn't matter whether or not the game interests you. The fact that you don't like a particular game doesn't mean it won't make an impact.
totally agree with Raf1k1. @gamerreport: take it as a helpful comment. im not sure what the objective of the news/blog was. but if you tried to make a list of games with an impact for real. then it should be not biased by subjective likings. instead it should be about the probability how big the games actually can or will shift gamers/sales/opinions/genres -> thus having an impact in some sort of way. for e.g.: i didnt play or try mw2 yet nor am i sure i will. but every idiot can see that it has the biggest impact worldwide as a game this year. doesnt mean that its the goty or that it has the best quality. just that it has created a lot of talk and change compared to other games... if that wasnt your intention and u wanted to share your own personal list of interest then say so and its done.
the list indeed sucks i mean come on max payne3 we dont diddly about the game how it plays or nothing but its sopposed to rock the gaming industry i laugh at u and ur list
Keep laughing. It's good for your health. Glad to provide some entertainment value. =P I'm laughing as well. It's funny to me how some N4G users get so upset by someone's opinion, that differs from that of their own.
is amazes me how you get all bent out of shape about someone not agreeing with your opnion and them making a opinion piece about it and you go all anti on them. Hypocrites always bring a smile to my face
"I'm laughing as well. It's funny to me how some N4G users get so upset by someone's opinion, that differs from that of their own." Yo, i'm all for personal opinion. I respect yours, and don't think your list "sucks". However, you're showing more weakness by trying to defend yourself to EVERY SINGLE person here. Stop it. Want to come out on top? Sit back, and take it. Stop trying to have a come back for everyone, esp cuz you're out of bubbles, and it's only going to make you a bigger target =/ Keep it up though.
my true list: God of War 3 GT5 Heavy Rain FF13 Mass Effect 2 Red Dead Redemption
I think MAG and Battlefield BC 2is going to surprise a lot of people. God of War III, GT5, and Heavy Rain will be huge.
but a bad list title. This list is NOT a list of all the TOP GAMES of '10 It's missing Last Guardian, Heavy Rain, GOWIII, SC:C, GT5 HOWEVER - Max Payne 3, red dead redemption and dark void look interesting =)
Dark Void...SH1T Dante's Inferno<GOW I, II and III Blur<Split/Second Alone in the dark 2<Heavy Rain Max Payne 3... Red Dead Redemption... TBH the only game that'll be making an impact for 360 in 2010 will be REACH, in 365 days. The 360's deathday. ME2 will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) SCC will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) Crackdown 2 will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) Alan Wake will FLOP ( according to BOT logic ) For me I'll be buying all the exclusives first before multiplats for my TripleAstation.
The biggest game of 2010 will be Halo Reach. No question about that. Don't even try to argue about it. GT5 comes in a close second. So both have at least 2 big hitters. But the 360 has a bigger list of AAA franchises coming out than Sony. I can only think of GT5 and God of War 3 for Sony.
subjectivity + stupidity = erroneous certainty! xD Keep it up you're killing me!! xD
I can almost guarentee that Reach will get OK reviews, and GT5 and GOW3 will get outstanding reviews; either way, Reach will sell more. Tis sad
Sales dont mean a games good. Anyway this article is funny, missed out all PS3 games, hardcore biased.
Where do you get this idea that Halo will get okay reviews? So far every single game has gotten rave reviews from respected gaming giants. Nice fail their dude.
When I say OK reviews, I mean reviews boarding on the huge hype train rolling with Halo Reach Edit: ODST and Halo Wars, which are spin offs like Reach, did NOT get "rave" reviews like you say
Judging from the trend, Halo 3 being average, Halo ODST being less than average.
Last I checked the last Halo game got an 83. (Y'know, since it's not an expansion pack and a full Halo game.) Gran Turismo will sell more than Halo: Reach. Don't even try to argue with the truth here.
Like I said, every Halo game has gotten rave reviews from RESPECTED GAMING GIANTS. Halo ODST got 9 and above from all the respected gaming journalists. If you look at the bottom of the list you get unknown nooby sites trying to get hits. 9 and above: IGN, Gamepro, Gamespot, Play Magazine, 1up, GameInformer, Official Xbox Magazine. 7 and less: Wonderwallweb??? Teletext Gaming Central??? Gaming Nexus??? The Onion??? Gamer's Hell??? The last GT4 only sold around 10 million with an install base of 100 million. Halo 3 has already surpassed that. Nice fail there dude.
Funny, I remember you using metacritic to say Forza > GT when it favored it. Also keep in mind one thing: GT is to Europe and the rest of the world what Halo is to the US. If you think Halo: Reach will sell the most, you're high. It's been replaced by CoD.
I give you facts and you give me jibberish. Nice. I win another online battle. :) To the Sizzler I go...
AAA by your standards, no... Call me crazy, but Heavy Rain and The Last Guardian will be ten times the experiences than any other game this year will be.
I only give jibberish to jibberish comments.
lmfao. The guy is a 360 fanboy? How do I know? He listed a bunch of MULTIPLATS and the ONLY 360 exclusive.
Best: 1. The Last Guardian 2. Heavy Rain 3. Alan Wake 4. Brink 5. God of War III 6. Mass Effect 2 7. Metal Gear: Peace Walker 8. Splinter Cell: Conviction Crap...I forgot to put Bioshock 2 in there. Lols. Well...it's definitely up there!
This article missed a lot of the big ones, particularly Final Fantasy, Halo and Gran Turismo. Not sure what the point was in making a list of games that can save the gaming industry's economy in 2010 and failing to include what will easily be the biggest sellers.
halo reach>>> all others games in 2010 mark my words..
none of those game are going to make an impact in 2010, just more games to the list. A ps3 firmware update is more of an impact than all those games listed.
Clearly the best game. or is this list strictly console?
well its not said what the list includes... but as far as it goes now its limited to xbox360 titles. if it would have included pc games id say sc2 too! this game might redefine the rts genre again. it has the potential to be the next real competitive esport game out there. though its not clear that sc2 will be released in 2010 aight? its done when its done. same procedure as every game with the beloved blizzard studios ^^
Racing enthusiast all over the world are still waiting for Gran Turismo 5 release
