It's halfway through the year, so Joystick Division has picked their top ten games of the year so far. Only console games made the list.
Goddamit, another one?
lol, 2010's been such a good year! But I disagree with his no.1; he didn't even write the aggregate score for it.. maybe because it's 95 :o)
jus wait till august comes,thats wen the real onslaught starts...mafia2,halo reach,cod,medal of honor,gt5,littlebig planet,socom4,fable 3,assassins creed brotherhood,dead rising 2,fallout,madden,and thers only more.the game industry must think all gamers are filthy rich
I did not think the first one matched the standards of its hype (mostly because of the second half and the fact that I hate the health/eve hording...at least let one of them recharge goddammit...), but the second one fell completely flat. It's the same fudging escort mission for 90% of the game.
Man I loved Bio1, but you are very right about Bio2. The second one got old real quick and was hard to finish.
wow so many PC games
The lack of MGS: Peace Walker disturbs me.
This is another generic top 10 list, but it gives me a chance to say that I completed Darksiders the other day and it's in my top 10 of the year. I picked it up for a tenner because I missed out on it when it was released, and it's a stunningly good game. Well worth buying if anyone else has missed out on it. Reason I didn't buy it sooner was because the demo put me off a bit, but the full game was incredible.
Modnation for me.. But a game I rediscovered and gave another chance.. Is Demon Souls.. It was soo infuriating and time consuming (especially when you suck) I gave it up.. I got a few tips from someone and that game is amazing.. and insanely addictive... So Demon Souls even though a 2009 game is my 2010 best game.. (even though that doesnt make sense)
lol I know that'll get the disagrees from PS3 fanboys already but I honestly can't get enough of the game (in particular the story) and eagerly awaiting the DLC coming :D. It's personally my GOTY thus far
#10 is reasonable. I'd have it at around #7 personally. The competition has been very strong this year, especially RDR, Mass Effect 2, God of War III, and SMG 2, which would are legit GotY candidates in my view. My runners-up would be Heavy Rain, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Alan Wake. I can understand why MLB The Show would be in the mix, but I personally dislike baseball.
mass effect 2. nothing else comes remotely close.
"It doesn't matter how great the final outcome is, no game will ever look brilliant as a sequel to BioShock. The original was too groundbreaking, and like nothing the gaming world had ever seen before." Sounds like somebody missed System Shock 2.
