Biggest Gaming Delights of 2010

AOTF: If 2010 was anything for gamers it was full of games and big announcements regarding the future of our favorite hobby. We had it all, hardware announcements, highly awaited titles that met expectations, and some surprising newcomers to the landscape. Since we already got our disappointments out of the way here are our biggest gaming delights of 2010 in no particular order.

God of War 3 - Just when you think that maybe we've seen the best that this generation has to offer, Sony Santa Monica comes along with a big kick in the ass to prove that you haven't seen anything yet. Playing to the strengths of the PlayStation 3 Sony Santa Monica gave other developers the coup de grace when it comes to best graphics this generation. The sheer size and scope of God of War 3 was mind boggling, and set new standards for what to expect from a sequel. (Bayonetta, God of War 3, Mario Galaxy 2, Mass Effect 2, PC, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, Sony, Valve Software, Wii, Xbox 360)

Can't argue with much here. I think Splinter Cell Conviction probably should have been mentioned I had the most fun this year with that.

Splinter Cell god if they would have included a decent multiplayer instead of the deniable ops crap it would still likely be being played by a whole bunch of people. But since they didn't it was just a flash in the pan.

Yeah should of stuck with the old multi-player it was what made the series so good.

the new N4g is much better
Now I don't have to waist my ammo on opinions, and that's fact.

just been playing pandora tomorrow again

I can't for the life of me understand why the debut of SC on HD consoles wasn't kept stealthy...sure they can try new things but...SC isn't the same without fischer in the SC suit and the gadgets =D

Ahem...Starcraft 2.. that is all.
Panthers  +   1615d ago

God of War III is the biggest gaming delight of 2010.

This is off topic, but... if you're the Troll_Police, what happened to you bubbles? That's weird.

Heavy Rain without a doubt my favourite game this year. RDR was awesome too.
N4WAH  +   1615d ago
Maybe I am living in the moment but for me it's GT5.
It finally (I say finally because I have been anticipating it 6 months after GT4 was released) arrived and I am completely addicted to it.

My other favorites of 2010 is GOW3 and RDR.

"Valve Announces Portal 2 for PS3 and ends Xbox 360 Exclusivity"

I had no idea Valve was an exclusive 360 developer. Learn something new everyday at N4G.
joydestroy  +   1615d ago
where have you been? O_o
there was a whole debacle about Valve saying they weren't developing for PS3 because they didn't feel it was necessary.
visualb  +   1615d ago
indeed amazing

especially considering I played portal as well as replayed the whole HL2 game on my PS3.

Portal played perfectly, HL2 not so much but still a blast =)

I guess I was lucky to have missed the exclusivity news...or else it might have dematerialized before me =O

it wasn't "xbox 360 exclusivity" though...they just didn't dev for PS3, but many games were still available (actually all besides L4D series)

correct. i consider that exclusivity though =)
Hayakuzima  +   1615d ago
That's not a brilliant list is it?
Bayonetta over Heavy Rain/Bioshock2/Splinter Cell Conviction/Mass Effect 2 etc.
I just think there's many BIGGER delights y'know?

GT5 :)
