Sleeper Hits of 2010, The Best This year Had to offer

GM writes: Gamersmint takes a look at the sleeper hits of 2010, games which didn’t have big marketing budgets or a hype train following it before release and yet managed to be commercially successful thanks to the sheer amount of content and fan approval it got upon release. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Bayonetta was awesome, so was vanquish.

Metro 2033, excellent story, gun play was a bit weak, graphics were simply the best of 2010(PC version).

Metro 2033 graphics are so good that the editors PC couldn't display them hence the generic splash art instead of a screen shot.

Minecraft...correction....
Minecraft has sold over 700,000 copies, ALPHA copies. Minecraft just went beta like 2 weeks ago. If you buy the Beta or Alpha you get the final build free.

Most of these titles sold 1+ million.
So much for "sleeper hits"

I just started playing Darksiders. Pretty good stuff.
imvix  +   1674d ago
Bought Darksiders of Steam for a mere 10usd. Guess it will be worth it.

Darksiders FTW!

Bayonetta was fun too.

I'll try Vanquish someday...

nemrawy  +   1674d ago
^^^^^ It's Darksiders :)

Bayonetta is one of the sleeper hits this year.I guess God of war 3 alerday took the hack and slash crown this year thats why Bayonetta was not really noticed.

I am now playing darksiders and gosh the game is fucking awesome !!!

Sleeper Hit: A good game that no one knew about or didnt sell well.

Most of those games sold great.

Just Cause 2 was my favorite game that I didn`t expect to like.

3D Dot game heroes, MAG, Heavy Rain, Mod Nation Racers.

"Sony 'till I die"

Finally! Someone that admires how awesome that game is! My buddy got it for me for Christmas and I'm loving it! It's in my top 5 favorite games this year :D
CrzyFooL  +   1674d ago
Yah, Splatterhouse is bad ass.
Xristo  +   1674d ago
Amnesia: The Dark Descent, should be on that list. Even Frictional Games was surprised on how well it did!
xstation79  +   1674d ago
Darksiders and just cause 2 were a couple of games I didn't know anything about. They turned out to be some of my favorites games this year.
mobijoker  +   1674d ago
I ignored Darksiders bcoz of the buzz of it being zelda and GOW clone.But when i played it later last month,man that's a great franchise in the making.It may not be the most original game,but when you can execute proven formulas with such mastery,who cares about originality?
tommyth3cat  +   1674d ago
I just bought Darksiders recently, really good game. I'm ashamed it took me this long to finally play it.
Dysmorphic  +   1674d ago
Modnation Racers - I don't know how much it sold but I rarely see anyone mention it. It brought back memories of yore when I would play Crash Team Racing or Toy Story Racer (which was surprisingly awesome). The creation aspects were just an added bonus although no arenas was disappointing. For anyone on the fence about it, I'd advise picking it up.
