Fellow #oneaday writer and editor of Nidzumi, Sam Morris, asked me what my top ten anticipated games of the year are. I hope I don’t ruin the feature by posting them here. Sorry Sam…
1. Skate 3
2. Halo Reach
3. Mass Effect 2
4. Crackdown 2
5. Just Cause 2
7. Bioshock 2
8. Fable 3
9. Batman Arkham Asylum 2
10. Warhammer 40’000 Space Marine
I actually had to go and browse PLAY.com to jog my memory as I am completely incompetent when it comes to remembering release dates – apart from Halo and Skate that is.
I surprised myself when I put Skate 3 ahead of Reach but I just love Skate that much. Skate 2 was my GOTY for ’09, I played it to death, finishing the campaign multiple times and logging in hundreds of hours online. In fact, my claim to fame, I made it into the top 200 on ranked Own The Spot and enjoyed every second of it. I still play it now, although not as much.
Crackdown 2 and Just Cause 2 are high on my list as I loved the originals, both of them have been begging for a sequel for some time now. Brink, I only just looked into recently, and from what I saw, looks to have tons of potential. Sneaking in at number 10 is Warhammer 40’000 Space Marine, I’ve watched some footage and it looks pretty good, just hope it plays well. The rest are the standard big hitters that will grace most peoples lists.
I know I will have missed a ton of games, not including the ones that I have not even heard of yet, and will no doubt have to update this soon. Looking forward to comparing my 2010 GOTY list to this one and seeing how many made the transition. Hopefully lots.
Anyway, I’m off to pamper the birthday girl. That sounds a lot worse than it actually is…or maybe better? I’ll stop now.
