1UP's Favorite Games of 2010 (So Far)

1UP writes: "Recently, we gave you our list of the biggest games of the fall, as if the industry lives and dies by what comes out from September to November. The reality is it doesn't, and great games come out at all times of the year. And we're not alone. With the holiday rush fast approaching, some of the 1UP staff shared their current top picks of this year's releases, to remind ourselves of what we liked best over the year, but also to remind you of any games from 2010 you should check out (or revisit) before your backlog grows even greater."

Before I read the article...why is FFXIII on there?

Edit: Read it. FAIL!!!

Edit 2: That's what I said! Mass Effect 2 was a good game...but a good third of it was just pop into cover, shoot at random enemy, rinse, and repeat. I like the story...but I hate that "I can do this much better" feeling. Ya know?

And why is God of War 3 not on there? Even Peace Walker isn't!

I don't respect 1up opinions anymore based on my opinion that God of War 3 should be on any Favorite games of 2010 list. That better! Leave the name calling out, we are not all children.

midgard2293834d ago

i didnt call anyone a child!! ooo ur calling me...grr u lol. nah but i know wat u mean. i luved Gow3, ff13 and peace walker aswell

just means they have bad taste in games, or its just their opinion lol. heck u wudnt like most of the games i like. i actually enjoyed bullet witch (probly cuz it was free) not saying it was a good game lol just enjoyed it......ahhh meteors bringing down sky scrapers all around me is pretty epic. then to be crushed by a sky scraper because i destroyed it is frustrating.....

wtf am i ranting about now lol

hatchimatchi3834d ago

god of war 3 isn't that great of a game. From a technical standpoint it is, but from a story/gameplay standpoint, it's just more of the same.

"Opinion" is an interesting word.

Anyone can have one.

Not everyone should.

midgard2293834d ago (Edited 3834d ago )

um guys, its THEIR favorite games not urs, lmao wow really can people be this dense?

obviously ur list and my list are far different

frjoethesecond3834d ago

People are entitled to their opinion. I think god of war 3 should be there but I also loved FF13.

BannedForNineYears3834d ago

I loved FF13.
It's better than MW 2 or FF10-2.

Two-Face3833d ago

Well, atleast Final Fantasy XIII was 60 hours ++ game. Compared to God of War III, which was only 12 hours or something? And both games had boring and average story, and the gameplay of God of War III was the same... at least FFXIII tried something new with it's gameplay.

I know these are individual writers' favorites...but seriously?

I guess I just don't see how a person can play God of War 3 and not think, "This is the most epic thing I've ever experienced in my life."

Heavy Rain is my GOTY anyway. Lol.

grailly3834d ago

do you understand that if every individual on that site had the same opinion as you, GOW3 still wouldn't be on the list?

Maybe they all loved it, but just loved another game you with heavy rain.
Also, GOW3 was super epic and awesome while you played it, but was very forgettable compared to red dead, heavy rain or Mass effect 2

"I guess I just don't see how a person can play God of War 3 and not think, "This is the most epic thing I've ever experienced in my life.""

Maybe because they already played something like this before. *Cough*God of War 1 and 2*Cough*

God of War 3 was the worst in the series. Annoying dungeons like the crates, dumb puzzles like the garden, lack of epic moments, etc. Story was also terrible. Its just Kratos killing anyone who gets in his way.

sayonara893834d ago

"lack of epic moments"


jarrod19813834d ago

i agree. its just a hack n slash game no matter what anyone says. dont get me wrong, its technically amazing but no game has ever worked my thumbs out more. nothing new gameplaywise to the first two. mass effect 2 and rdr are better and more enjoyable by far.

LeonSKennedy4Life3834d ago

grailly - Did you not read what I wrote?

"I know these are individual writers' favorites..."

SiteNblog Defender - I honestly can't take you seriously.

grailly3834d ago

@ leon - I did, but you still went on and complained about their choice...even though you wouldn't have put GOW3 on that list, apparently

Basil-Rathboner3834d ago

I bought God of War 3 day 1 and although i appreciate its a breathtaking technical achievement, i have never put it back in my ps3 since i completed it.

I can't quite put my finger on it but even though i thoroughly enjoyed the game, i found there was a couple of minor gameplay elements that ever so slightly marred my enjoyment.

Such as the leaping to my death countless times from ledges and the jumping from Harpe to Harpe enemies was cumbersome (for me anyway). There was another section where i was chasing someone and leaping from wooden ledge to wooden ledge. I very nearly threw my blasted controller at the tv during that bit. ( Or maybe i am just sh!t at these types of games )

Perhaps for me it was partly that the game was hyped to the high heavens i expected just a touch too much. I guess as they say its horses for courses or if you will (or in UK parlance - not my cup of tea )

The game i have personally enjoyed most is Read Dead Redemption.

Robearboy3834d ago

I think what you mean is that as beautiful as it looks the gameplay hasnt evolved from the first two - which for some people is not a bad thing but I, like yourself found marvelling at its beauty once is enough

Robearboy3834d ago

FF13, are you kidding me? No matter how nice it looked, the game was one long streak of piss and boring as hell to boot

Basil-Rathboner3834d ago (Edited 3834d ago )

I agree. You pretty much summed it up very well about my GOW3 experience.

General Shrooms3834d ago

I rented that "game" from gamefly and I didn't even want to finish it, it did though. You know your game is bad when it isn't even worth a rental.
