2010: The Year in Gaming... So Far

We've passed the halfway point of the year and its been a good six months for the video game industry. Between a bevy of high profile releases and an amazing E3 that highlighted gaming's past, present and future, it's a good time to be a gamer. (E3, Industry, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

Good analysis. PS3 baby!

Am I the only one to find it ironic that the highest rated PS3 game on metacritic so far is a multiplatform?

I mean multiplatforms for sony fanboys is like garlic, silver bullets and wood cross for vampires...

Imagine garlic as the highest rated food in a vampire magazine...

EDIT:

Also found it ironic that the Xbox 360 had 69 released games and the PS3 have 57... Now everyone (inclusive me) knows that PS3 got more exclusive, then how the hell is this possible?

Nicely said. Don't worry if you get disagrees, fanboys get hurt easily. :)

RE: PS3 has BETTER exclusives as of late.
True, but the numbers don't lie. So everyone disagreeing can, in the words of everyone's favorite cartoon robot, bite my shiny metal ass.

oddly enough that game has the highest rated game on x360 as well....
still I think it's overated and uncharted 2 is much better in my view, definately the best game so far in this generation, alongside with GOW III and Heavy Rain, to be honest more better quality exclusives have come out for PS3 this year so, sony does quantity and quality, that is something which the 360 is not doing right now as to be honest the only game worth getting that is exclusive was ME2 and that you can play on PC.

AC2 highest rated!WTF!
ME2 has currently got 94 for pc on metacritic.Even its dlc Overlord got 86.How can these brainless kiddies call them reporters?A complete disgrace!N4G should filter these bullsh*t sites which cannot do a simple search on metacritic.

I didn't realise this many good games had been announced. It's a habit of thinking when Naughty Dog or Insomniac don't release a game, it's a rubbish year for gaming. However, how much I am mistaken, I still haven't played GoW3 (despite being an utter Kratos fanboy), ME2, Mario Galaxy 2 (let alone 1), No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle, Alan Wake, Bioshock 2 or Modnation Racers. I still want to play Dark Void too.

Looks like a lot of ex-rental/secondhand catching up for me to do.

Still, next year is going to be incredible; Infamous 2, Killzone 3, Rage and Bulletstorm.

No doubt those will also be great on all systems.

November is gonna do so much damage on cash for me. :(
