The best games of 2010
- — 26 November, 2010 10:29
2010 was a huge year for gaming - arguably the biggest in recent memory. In addition to the hoopla surrounding motion-control, there was a dizzying array of great titles vying for gamers' attention. Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption, Starcraft 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock 2, God of War III, Halo Reach, Mario Galaxy 2: the list goes on and on. It was also a year filled with a few surprises, including PlayStation Move not sucking, Bad Company 2 being a better game than Call of Duty: Black Ops, the iPod dominating as a handheld games device and Gran Turismo 5 finally arriving at the tail-end of the year.
In the following slideshow, we pay tribute to our personal favourite games of 2010, with supporting links to our original reviews. Mark our words: many of the games listed in this feature are destined to go down as all-time classics. But enough of our mindless gushing: let's take a look back at the year's best games.

The original Scribblenauts was an eye-opening example of what can happen when a developer thinks outside the traditional game design box. Its clever use of words and items hinted at its vast potential, but some mechanical shortcomings got in the way of the fun. Super Scribblenauts not only addresses those issues, but adds a nice layer of complexity with the addition of adjectives, making for a game that finally showcases the imagination inherent in 5th Cell's bold design.
