So I know a few other people have made their own lists and I just wanted to throw my own out there. 2010 is shaping up to be one of the best years ever. It's packed with games all year round (no summer drought this time) and many of them look amazing. So here are my top 11 most anticipated games of 2010 (in order):
1. The Last Guardian
Developed by the creators of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus (in my opinion, the best game ever). Need I say more?
2. God of War III
God of War is the series that defines the word "epic." Just looking at videos and pictures get's me hyped up. This is THE game to own 2010, and with the cliffhanger God of War II had, the wait is made even harder.
3. Bioshock 2
The first Bioshock is one my most favorite games of all time. The story, the atmosphere, the graphics, the gameplay. It was all done extremely well. Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to what they do with the second installment.
4. Super Mario Galaxy 2
While Super Mario Galaxy wasn't as fun as Super Mario 64 (in my opinion of course), I enjoyed it immensely and it is, without a doubt, the best 3D platformer this gen and Super Mario Galaxy 2 looks to take the throne from it's predecessor.
5. Gran Turismo 5
the wait is almost over and it WILL pay off. Polyphony Digital's next installment in the GT series is set to the king of console racing sims (at least until GT6).
6. Halo Reach
As I've said before, I'm a Halo fan that's been disappointed with this gen of Halo games. Halo Reach seems to be shaping up to be what Halo 3 should have been. A true next generation Halo based on an amazing book. What more could you ask for?
7. Heavy Rain
The uniqueness of this game has me really intrigued. I personally have never seen any other game that's attempting what Heavy Rain's devs are trying to do. The game looks thrilling, interesting, and fun.
8. Mass Effect 2
Bioware has apparently fixed all my issues with the first one. Throw in what looks to be a great storyline and solid gameplay and you've got yourself a game full of win.
9. Modnation Racers
I've always loved Mario Kart and I love LittleBigPlanet. A combination of both is just brilliant
10. Alan Wake
Though the game has lost a lot of what made it hyped up in the first place, it still looks like an amazing experience and certainly looks to be one of the 360's best games next year.
11. Splinter Cell Conviction
It's no Metal Gear Solid, but I really like stealth games and previous Splinter Cells have been great. I'm confident this will be another great installment.
So that's pretty much my most anticipated games. There's many more and I could go on listing them, but I think the top 11 are good enough. I'll just say this once more: 2010 is gonna be epic for gamers.
