The best games of 2010

We shortlist the best video games and gaming gadgets of the year

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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
