Brash Games' Top 5 Biggest Surprises of 2010

Call of Duty: Black Ops selling a bazillion copies, yearly sports updates, bad Nintendo Wii adverts at Christmas – the game industry is often a pretty predictable place. Of course, the internet doesn’t help; the clamour for up to date, accurate information has led to an industry that is often all but devoid of surprises. Still, regardless of the efforts of sites such as ourselves, there are always a few titbits that fall through the cracks, a few games that seemingly come out of nowhere and a handful of titles that, despite the blanket coverage, manage to exceed expectations or fall desperately short of their potential.

"3. GT5 not being the best racer ever"

puts on coat and waits for sh**storm

Sorry but GT5 is the best racing simulator on any console...

If it were, there would be no discussion.

Look at SMG2. Nobody (or close enough) denies that it is the best plateformer, that's because it actually is, and nothing in the competition comes close.

On the other hand, there are far too many good racing games to make that kind of claim.

And what is the best racing simulator on consoles?

Sorry but there is no simulators as good as GT5 with that much content...

it seems you didn't play GT5.

And it seems you misunderstoo me.
I couldn't care less what the best racing simulator on console is. Let's say I prefer forza, and so what ?

Do people deny uncharted 2 was the most impressive game of 2009 ? no they don't, because there was no contest. Did they need to play it to see that ? no they didn't...

Do people still claim that X or Y is the best FPS ever ? no they dont't, cause there are several quality games, and it's a matter of opinion.

Well, the same goes for GT5. It's great, but it's not what people thought (or hoped) it would be, it's not head and shoulders above the competition. The author of the article is right, that's a surprise.
