GameSpy.com writes: "So, 2010...on paper it seemed like it was going to be a good year, right? A ton of long-anticipated games like Final Fantasy XIII, Alan Wake and Gran Turismo 5 were set to finally come out, and even Nintendo agreed to briefly descend from their mountain of Nintendogs and Brain Training money to develop actual games again. Somehow, though, the year ended up feeling vaguely unsatisfying -- like eating at Olive Garden.
How did such a promising year go wrong? We can't say for sure, but we here at GameSpy have a few characters and games from 2010 that we feel we need to call out."
