Best of E3 2010
The list of the top games we saw this year
The biggest show in the gaming industry is no laughing matter. We got a chance to see some great titles, and below is merely a handful of the awesome stuff at the show. Nonetheless, here are 10 titles that impressed us the most, along with some runners up. Since we really can't decide which of them is the better than the other, they are listed in alphabetical order!
Crysis 2 has set out to exceed expectations on what is possible on consoles. Both console and PC players remain cautious, and rightly so, but we hope that when the game is finally released sometime this year, it will have been worth the wait. For everyone.

The fans surely have a lot of expectations from this prequel. Eidos have set the bar fairly high for themselves, and so far the game looks great. The style of the game certainly shines through and the atmosphere is already well executed. We really hope to hear and see more about the game in the coming months, but for now, what we saw was huge potential.
When: Q1, 2011
As one might expect, Mafia 2 will bring the modern day sandbox gameplay formula to the prestige gangster era of American 50s. The game still has much potential to discover, and as the August release date draws near, the anticipation and excitement from the fans and newcomers alike should only get bigger.
When: August 24, 2010

When: November 16, 2010
With Portal 2, fans simply wanted more of the excellent gameplay and story from the original, but Valve will not take any shortcuts. The game will offer a new story, characters, and vastly different mechanics to further bend your mind and solve even more complicated puzzles.
When: Q1, 2011
