It sets the bar for mature and adult characters, and story lines that are as compelling as some of the best movies in Hollywood. With a sizeable and fun multiplayer component thrown in for good measure, you’d be a fool not to pick this one up. Red Dead Redemption is a must-play title for any fans of Rockstar’s previous games, the Western genre, and open world games in general, and it is the our Game of the Year 2010. Thank you for reading, and we'll see you next year!
Personally, I thought Final Fantasy XIII deserved some hate here. I haven't played Splinter Cell: Conviction or Dead Rising 2, but I suppose it depends upon the expectations placed upon those games in the eyes of the player. Nice article guys.
I honestly thought 2010 was a better year for games overall than 2009, but that might just be me since I don't care as much about polish as I do about unique/memorable experiences. And I don't own a PS3 so I didn't play Uncharted 2 (but it did look awesome).
2011 should be even better since it has a new batman/uncharted game and a sleugh of great looking RPG's.
Is it bad that when I look at this years games I just keep referencing uncharted 2 and batman. Oh uncharted 2/batman looked/played/sounded better... I love those two games, to dump almost 40-60 hours into eaches SP campaign when it is pretty scripted is kinda silly but I've done it. just replayed UC 2 over christmas.
read dead and ME 2 seem to be the critical darlings this past year(for all outlets), with BC2 and Blackopps battling for shooter supremacy. All I can say is I play more Bad company2, alot more. The irony is how much blackopps players resist playing that game but once you get them to play it they are hooked.
My friend who has been a COD junky for some time picked this one up and he finally agrees, blackopps is a gimmicky deathmatch game and battlefield is a actual war game. He can't play Blackopps anymore.
Oh yeah ok... I liked splinter cell alot, the franchise peaked with chaos theory, it really needs a major overhaul. Mark and execute is awesome idea, but their implimentation was flawed, it didn't work very well with many of the levels you where actually put in. As a sp game goes this one was rampant with exploits to be abused by the player, enemy AI was really simple and uninteresting. levels where way to small, visuals where all over the place, the prerendered cinemas where SD for no apparent reason.(played on pc) The game had some awesome high points, i enjoyed the interigation sequences alot. fighting rookie versions of my former self was fun. I can't believe conviction was in developement so long.
