[Y] Game of the Year 2010 - Page 11

I thought Braid was 2010... Huh, oh well.
God or War brought amazing visuals, amazing story, amazing game play, and an amazing ending to an amazing trilogy. "New" things doesn't necessarily mean new from scratch, but new standards or other concepts like that. Starcraft II felt the exact same as SC I, just prettier and better selection ability. Over all, the campaign was never any good. SC only has multiplayer going for it, and they ruined that with Battle.net requirements for SC II. Old school lan parties was where it was at.
As for Red Dead - Have you ever experienced an amazing open world game with amazing dynamic interacting content with amazing visuals? Don't say Fallout, because that doesn't mean any of those requirements. What about in the old west? Nope, it is totally new. Plenty of modern day things (GTA) and disappointing trashy post-war eras like FO and Borderlands. Red Dead is by far one of the best games ever made, just because you don't like the style doesn't mean it isn't good.
Minecraft - It is in beta, so? It is still a game that is released. Show me where the requirements for GOTY state all contenders must be an official release candidate.
Amnesia - I can't give an honest opinion on it, I didn't get far into it before I got really bored. For what I seen, you just click around in the dark until you find more fuel to make clicking around the dark a little less annoying.

The problem with your opinion is just that, it's an opinion. You aren't a video game critic and thus you can't have any opinion on a "Top 15" list. You don't have the aptitude to critique a video game, you're just a player. If I watch a bunch of movies does that make me a film critique? No, it doesn't. I had to go to school for years and study film and filming techniques to become a film critic.

I am a video game critic, I have the aptitude and intelligence to comment on and create Top XX lists. Halo 3 and Halo Reach have paved the way for the future of console gaming, just like Halo 2 did before them. I could go on and on about why this is but I would just be wasting my time. To you Reach is "mediocre at best", and from that you concluded it shouldn't be on this Top 15 list, which is all the factual evidence I need to prove you have no authority when it comes to critiquing a video game.

To me, Citizen Kane is a mediocre film/story, but yet I easily recognize it is the best film ever made, and fully understand why most film critics also place it at the top of their Top XX lists. If I was like you and used my opinion to rank Citizen Kane, I would come off as a very nooby film critic. Instead, I rely on facts and hard evidence to form my choice that Citizen Kane is the best film ever made.

That's the difference between me and you. Your lists are blindly created based on your opinion of what your favourite trend is at the moment. My lists are based not on my opinion, but on facts and hard evidence.

Halo Reach definitely belongs at the top of any 2010 list, no other game came close to it this year. It doesn't matter how much you loved or hated Halo Reach, it still belongs at the top of any list, because the evidence shows it did the most for the video game industry as a whole.
Funny how critics like to criticize but not be criticized.

Besides, how hard can it be?

Heavy Rain and Limbo are the only things on that list that aren't total rehashes of previous best of's (red dead=GTAIV, Wild West style. Great game, but lets face it lol).

I suppose Dance Central is as well, but that's so laughable I refuse to recognize it.

We need new IP's. I love ME, Gran Turismo, etc but I hate to see these franchises ran into the ground and rehashed year after year (here's looking at you, COD and NFS). I will admit this year it seems the rehashes were of suprising quality (Again, looking at you COD and NFS), but even if you're making super glue, you're still beating a dead horse.


At first glance, I was appalled at this list. Now, I have to say, it's not too bad. Disagree with the order, think it needs Fallout and BC2(or was that 09?), but hey as much as I hate on WoW and Halo the noob shooter, I can't really fault them for those being on the list.

FIFA, Mario anything, and that Dance game however ...

And the funny part is that gamers don't give a **** about critics... I prefer opinion of other gamers based on f.e. user metacritic votes.

8. Limbo
7. Mass Effect 2
6. God of War 3
5. Red Dead Redemption
4. COD Black Ops(generic shooter. nothing inspiring)
3. Halo Reach /(These both are nothing compared to the originals, but they are still very popular.(Britneyspears was very popular, that doesn't mean she's good)
2. Cataclysm (It changed Warcraft forever, and alot of what the glory 60 days were...hate all you want, but its you vs 11 million people.)(please!)
1. Heavy Rain (even tho this wasnt a huge action title, it was extremely fun and broke the grind of "kill this, loot this, stab this, collect this" gameplay")
there, much better
I agree with your modifications
