    Seeing all the Darksiders love made me pick it up on the way home from work today. You guys better be right.

    I was initially turned off by the art style, but the Zelda gameplay comparisons interest me.

    EDIT: Also, thinking about picking up 3D Dot Game Heroes for the retro Zelda homage.

    1. Alpha Protocol (360,PC,PS3)
    2. Metro 2033 (360,PS3)
    3. Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale (PC*)
    4. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP)
    5. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (360,PS3)
    6. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (360,iPhone,Mobile,PC)
    7. Chime (360*,PC*)
    8. Valkyria Chronicles 2 (PSP)
    9. Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver (DS)
    10. Mass Effect 2 (360,PC)
    11. Fallout: New Vegas (360,PC,PS3)
    12. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (360,PC,PS3)
    13. Mafia 2 (360,PC,PS3)
    14. Scott Pilgrim vs The World (360*,PS3*)
    15. Super Meat Boy (360*,PC*)
    16. Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth (DS)
    17. Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii)

    19. Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (360,PC,PS3)
    20. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (360*,iPhone,PC*,PS3*)

    While I thought the complaints about there being not as many good games this year as usual were overblown, this year was remarkably easy to rank. And not just because I only had 20ish, so I wasn't agonizing over the half of my list that wouldn't show up.

    ME2, CivV and Starcraft 2. They're pretty much interchangeable but I put them in that order anyway.

    All PC games too. Suck it down console heathens.

    My list of games played was around 40 this year, a little more than 20 that I actually enjoyed, and a solid 10 that had Game of the Year written all over them for me.

    I think this was another outstanding year for games.

    This is my favorite (and in my opinion the only respectable) game of the year thingie on the whole intertubes.

    Also, this made me realize that I've only played 3 new games in 2010. Fucking A being an adult sucks.

    1. Super Mario Galaxy 2
    2. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
    3. Metroid: Other M

    That can only possibly be applied to SC2. Civ is 100% turn based. Also, not particularly convenient for multiplayer because of the average game length.

    Cinematic adventure game with a mature story, even if that story was filled with a number of flaws (most of which seemed to be because of the major story changes midway through development). Why you'd bitch and moan about Heavy Rain when you've got FFXIII on your list is beyond me.

    3. Halo Reach (360)
    4. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (360,PS3)

    2010 really started out with bang. It really was a flip of the coin for the #1 spot. In the end, Bayonetta beat out ME2.

    And now I have the urge to go back and play more Bayonetta. It's been a while.

    Top 20:
    1. Bayonetta (360,PS3)
    2. Mass Effect 2 (360,PC)
    3. Halo Reach (360)
    4. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (360,PS3)

    I thought it was more challenging than the first game from a pretty early point and that despite there being so much to the first game, it still manages to do a ton of new stuff with the theme.

    Certainly you should at least give it another go past a mere 30 stars if you still have it. I do need to get around to playing Kirby at some point myself though.

    And hey, all those top 20 votes for Recettar put me onto a really fun game(but damn it if the weekly bill doesn't jump high as hell, don't know how I'm going to raise 200000 bucks in one go).

    You can tell it's very shiny because of the sparkles floating around it.

    And also because of the robust and lustrous pastel shades I have deftly applied to the surface, giving the impression of the most exquisite cut glass.

    I removed the reply cause I don't wanna get yelled at for derailing the thread so much, but the summary of it basically was I think Heavy Rain's story is a mess, and while FFXIII's is too, I expected as much and I still had fun with the gameplay. So that's why it's on my list.

    The point being that there may be people who played nintendo games that they ended up not liking, and thus they weren't mentioned on their lists.
