Best Video Games of 2010 – What’s Your Top 5?

By Updated on

Now that 2010 is almost over, many gaming websites have been listing their favorite games of this year. As you can imagine there has been a wide variety mentioned, including obvious titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, Red Dead Redemption and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

I thought I would take a look at a couple of these websites, just to check out what titles are being dubbed the best video games of 2010. The first article I came across is from Chris Kohler over at, which actually lists the top 20 games of this year including Fallout: New Vegas at No. 20.

The game that came in at No. 19 on this list is Kirby’s Epic Yarn for the Nintendo Wii, while BioWare’s Mass Effect 2 game ended up at number 11 and Donkey Kong Returns made it to No. 6. The game that made it to the No. 1 spot on this list however was Starcraft 2 for the PC.

Surprisingly, COD: Black Ops didn’t actually make the top 20 list at all. The next article that interested me is the top 4 games of 2010, from the guys at Michael said his favorite title of 2010 was Splinter Cell: Conviction, while Battlefield Bad Company 2 was his runner-up.

Chris on the other hand classed Mass Effect 2 as his best game of this year, and listed Bayonetta as his second choice. Josh listed Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood as his top game of 2010, while Call of Duty: Black Ops was named as his runner-up.

Meanwhile, Cory named Super Mario Galaxy 2 as his top choice and Call of Duty: Black Ops as his second choice. I’m quite surprised not to see Gran Turismo mentioned on any of the lists. Being a fan of first-person shooters, I would have to say Black Ops is one of my top choices.

What would your top 5 list be?
