There were many great titles released, and i've bought each one of them for PS3. (check my trophies) Except Black ops, simply because i don't like/trust Treyarch.

Bayonetta was unbelievably superior for 360 and the PS3 version was such a terrible port i refused to even continue playing. Looked dull and jagged.

FFXIII i beat while i noticed most of you threw in the towel due to it's boring linearity, which it was for the first 60% of the game, i hung in there and aced the game. Missing 2 trophies though.

God of War III owns anything on the 360 including Halo reach except ME2.

Red Dead Redemption to me surpassed every game this year being my GOTY. Rockstar's brilliant writing has me psyched for GTA5.



New Vegas, EA MMA and GT5 i plan on getting eventually,

but what was your 2010 GOTY?

Hard to give an opinion, because I havent played every game...

Games I got for 2010.


Red Dead Redemption

NBA 2k11

Black Ops

Mafia II



My nod goes to Red Dead Redemption for overall gameplay value, storyline, and graphics.

2k11 was good, but nothing much better than last years game only added in the Jordan legacy mode.

Black ops is simply a different version of MW2

The games I enjoyed most this year:

Red Dead Redemption - Brilliant game, I just never completed it.

Fifa 11 - Played this for hours and hours, probably the most fun game for me.

UFC 2010 - This game suprised me because most people think it is terrible. I played around 300 matches online, which is rare for me. I got addicted to this game.

Starcraft 2: This game is my 2010 game of the year. It is the first Starcraft I have ever played and is one of the best RTS games ever made. I forgot to add this game because I have been unable to play it lately due to the performance of my computer.

Red Dead Redemption: This game was a great experience. I found the online weak, but Rockstar made up for it with an amazing campaign. I had very few complaints about RD aside from the repetitiveness of riding a horse after awhile, but overall this game is an ATG.

Gran Turismo 5: Now I know that this game doesn’t have a crazy cop filled campaign like NFS, and it doesn’t have extensive damage like Forza 3, but this game deserves to be mentioned. Avoid the bias reviews because I am telling you, this game is no lower than a 9/10. The driving physics which this game uses are beyond that of any other racing game. I know that this game just came out, but it is still a 2010 game which I love to play.

Starcraft 2 for me and it's not even close.

I enjoyed sooo many games this year but no matter how many times I play SC2 I just can't get enough of it. Every game is different and you are constantly learning and adapting. I can see myself playing this until they come out with another starcraft.

I hate picking just one, we've had a bunch of great games this year.
Red Dead, God Of War 3, New Vegas, GT5, Assasins Creed and so on. If I had to pick a game tho.. I'd go with Mass Effect 2.

I will say this tho, as great as these games are..none of them come close to Uncharted 1/2. ;)

Red Dead Redemption by Far, the game is the biggest innovation this year and gives an idea of what to expect from open word games, Quality, Quantity, and selection.

Super Mario Galaxy 2.


Countering us with a nintendo exclusive? huh lad..

I've read about Mario Galaxy 2, Mario is a game where if it's being called a 10/10 it's believable.

I hate picking just one, we've had a bunch of great games this year.
Red Dead, God Of War 3, New Vegas, GT5, Assasins Creed and so on. If I had to pick a game tho.. I'd go with Mass Effect 2.

I don't know D.. Uncharted 2 is so on another level than 1 was, i had a friend who started 1 but didn't bother to make it even 30% through, and i let him borrow 2 and he loved it and actually finished the damn game.


I forgot to mention Super Street Fighter IV, it added 10 new people and new ultras. The online was better. I've since got rid of it because i'm getting ready for Marvel Vs Capcom 3.

If Mass Effect 2 came out a month earlier this would be an easy choice - Red Dead Redemption was amazing in every way: Great story, great characters, great sound and music and such a perfect setting that even though you spend 80% of your time on horseback I never grew tired of riding from A to B.

Mass Effect 2 was so close to perfection however with an amazing story and character arc, varied missions and a stellar original universe.

If I pick either ME2 or Red Dead then I would feel like I was doing the other one a disservice.

Ill give it to red dead, although I haven't played it I never heard 1 flaw from it.

This year I never had a gave where I go oooo man this is dope as hell!!

Black ops was good, but imo its no game of the year.

I love fifa 11 but a sports game will never win game of the year.

Final fantasy was hot I like that ill give that a game of the year that I've played.

I hate to say this but...........

Mass Effect 2
Red Dead Redemption
NBA 2k11
Fifa 11

I say i hate to say this because im the local southern fried homey around these parts and should be in love with RDR.

but the fact is that for all the promises they made about they game they lightly hit all of them....i liked the expasivness of the game but i feel at times they just relied too much on aesthetics and not enough on substance

i wish that Rockstar would put more things to do in their games. Of course they have enough missions, but if they harnessed the utter size of the map the way say oblivion or fallout does then imagine the fun to be had

that being said some parts of the game got rather competitive...go get this, bring it here, the plan goes to hell, get the **** out of there.

not trying to be a negative nancy....i loved the game...but that is why ME2 beat it out

but every other game that came out this year dissapointed me

Fallout New Vegas was a HUGE let down.

i dont even attempt to play it anymore....the bugs and glitches totally killed it for me...plus most of the missions were PAINFULLY annoying to do and i didnt enjoy a lot of them....the ghoul rocket mission comes to mind.

The day i got it just so happened to be the day the second patch came out. v.02. Vegas is sick. the Fallout 3 story is better, but i've saw bugs and had 2 freezes since getting it. Still got tons to do but the game requires far more work than Fallout 3.

i got some bug half way through the game that makes my PS3 lock up around 20 minutes of playing every time i boot up

its ****ing gay

and in attempts to save my PS3 from burning out i quit playing it

Mass effect 2, closely followed by red dead redemption.

I also really enjoyed darksiders. I know it didn't get stellar reviews but it was definitely one of my top 5 games this year.

Never understood the fascination with Uncharted.. It's a great game sure but def not all that. Some basic shooting and platforming and loads og generic enemies. It's like playing national treasures with an Assassin's creed platformer twist.

Mass Effect 2 followed by Starcraft 2.

No other games were even remotely close to touching those 2.

I think the only games I got that were released this year were:

God of War 3
Gran Turismo 5
FIFA 11

And all 3 are good.

Not online yet... I am in career mode right now, I am trying to catch up so I am on track with todays date, I am about a month behind...

The Suns were the hardest matchup so far.

I swear they made EVERY shot they threw up and I missed everything, from jump shots to basic layups I would miss.. it was ridiculous.

I got down by 20points from the opening bell...and I could not get back into single digits until 5 mins left in the 4th... I was down by 1 with 90 seconds to go... I pulled ahead with a 3 from Kobe with less than 60 seconds, got a turnover, scored again and then they started fouling to stop the clock but I always inbounded to Kobe because hes clutch from the free throw... I won by 7.

It was probably the most stressful and satisfying game I have had so far.
