GameZone staff each shares their top 5 favorite games that came out in the first half of 2010. Trouble finding a present for a gamer in your life, let our list help you decide. Read on to find out if your favorite game made the list.
Yakuza 3 is a title that needs more credit. God of War III better be on the GOTY list for every website for nominations.
My proudest platinum.
Probably the 100th "Best games so far of 2010" article. Now we need a "Best 'Best Games So Far of 2010' articles so far of 2010" article. At least this one covers a bigger amount of games than most of the other ones.
a blast playing this game right now. Started a couple of days ago and couldn't wait to get home to play it. Just made it to Tokyo in the game.... have to check out what happens next!!! Play this game guys!!!! This series need our support so we can get the 4th installment released in the US.
too bad that the writer of the article quite evidently did NOT play Yakuza 3. There's NO pachinko and NO ping pong in Yakuza 3. They're bot in Yakuza 4. So he probably just read a description or saw some pics of the 4th chapter and went with it. Quite shameful. Of course, despite that, Yakuza 4 is an awesome game.
God of War III is too much like the 2nd so I wouldn't put that on there, despite how good it is. Alan Wake is a game that kept me playing until 4 in the morning and I like it =) Im not sure if it counts as a game but LIMBO for xbla is great!
wow out of all those I've only played Bioshock 2. I think I'll have to check out Red Dead Redemption since everyone seems to rave about it!
my top games this year are Mass effect 2, God of war 3, Alan wake, and Red dead. I still need to play bayonetta, Heavy rain and Starcraft 2.
I still haven't played Yakuza 3. Maybe a trip to Gamestop is in order tonight.
Lol, haven't gotten around to any of these, pc games seem to have longer lasting communities so I haven't found the need go out and buy new ones, although I will get around to them
Especially RDR, No More Heroes 2 and Galaxy 2. Masterpieces!
Blur!Love it,it deserves it!
that game deserved so much. Its a blast online
I'm surprised there's no love for Alan Wake on the list. That's one of my top games of the year. :)
actually played the thing?
mass effect 2: so good they mentioned it twice! but only one mention of super mario galaxy 2.
I agree. Why isn't Alan Wake here? GZ
I'm probably going to be flamed for this, but Alan Wake = overrated. I mean I enjoyed the game to an extent, but it's not GREAT. Agrees with Deathsmiles, Mass Effect 2, and Red Dead. My concern? Where is Starcraft 2!!!!!!!
Haven't played Yakuza 3 yet looks like gta and true crime
it's nothing like GTA .. it's a game full of content with a awesome fighting system and a cool story
I'm so glad Mario Galaxy 2 and No More Heroes 2 were on there. They definitely deserve to be in a best of 2010 list for sure!
Yakuza 3 doesn't get enough love. Neither does Just Cause 2.
dont know about yakuza3 because i have not played it but just cause2 was a horrible horrible game (good action game for kids). sorry thats just my opinion.
Bayonetta! finally someone remember about it! every "top 2010 games so far" they not even MENTION Bayonetta! For me, it was probably the most fun game so far this year (and i've played almost all of them... Mass Effect 2, God of War 3, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Red Dead Redemption, Transformers and etc...), personally... for ME, Bayonetta CAN be MY Goty. Oh, nice... Transformers, another great game that nobody gives a damn.
but bayonetta was brilliant
Heavy Rain and God of War 3 are more than games. They deserve a class all their own...along with Team Ico's stuff.
Was Mass Effect 2 really so good that it merrited making the same list twice ( once at the top, once at the bottom...) (FYI , I thouroughly enojoyed ME2 :D )
yup. Awesome game. GOTY is either: Mass Effect 2 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Red Dead Redemption Or possible REACH Cause in the end, you still gotta go with review scores like Metacritic, and thus far, those are not only AAA awesome games, but the highest rates too. So understand when God of War 3, FF13, and Alan Wake don't make the cut.
i didn't really like split second or blur the fun only lasted 10 min for me before i got bored of playing,the best arcade racers are the old burnout games on PS2.
This has to be like the 10th similar list I've seen this month.
Good list. I would have also added Heavy Rain to the list personally.
My top games... 1. Mass Effect 2 2. Red Dead Redemption 3. God of War 3 4. Alan Wake 5. Super Street Fighter 4 6. Bayonetta 7. Blur 8. Heavy Rain Another great year for gaming.
Good lists. RDR, ME2 and Bayonetta are one of the best and most enjoyable games this year for me. i don't get why skadoosh get disagree for listing his favorite games so far this year?
The 4th Chairman is finally getting some love!
Too bad that the writer didn't even manage to describe the game correctly ^_^;;;
It's been a really great year so far, the list is good but doesn't even begin to cover all the great games we've got in 2010. There's Heavy Rain, Deathspank, SSFIV, SC2, MNR, Darksiders, Metro 2033, Alan Wake...PSP's having its strongest year in in game lineup also.
Mass Effect 2 was listed twice.
me2,were my favorite
I've been hearing a lot of good things on this one lately, looking like I'll have to give Yakuza 3 a shot.
