Time for that Game of the Year

I've been over thinking this one. There are a couple stand out games that I played in 2010 for sure.

I had the best time with FIFA 11. What a great experience I am having with this game. Its online creation system almost made it a game worthy of my pick. But no matter how you slice it... still a sports game. I think if more statistics were available I would pick it. As it is you get things like how much distance a player covers and time of possession during the game, but once out they seem to disappear. Goals, assists, yellow and red cards stick. Which is great, but still lacking. I want more!

I picked up both big 'shooters' of the year; Call of Duty: Black Ops and Medal of Honor. MoH was a superior game, by far. I wanted to write about it more but used up all my writing on 1st person shooters on the failure that was Black Ops. It's strange that MoH got destroyed in reviews and Black Ops got all the good scores. What a joke. The Medal of Honor game is recommended.

Mass Effect 2 also made an appearance for me. I've only scratched the surface of this one though. A couple other games I didn't get to play this year were Deadly Premonition and Nier. Premonition is one I will check out.

So where does that leave me? Red Dead Redemption and Heavy Rain.


Heck, it's my world here. I'll give it to both.

With the sight edge to Red Dead and the "you have to experience it" tag to Heavy Rain.

2010: Red Dead Redemption / Heavy Rain
2009: Uncharted 2
2008: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
