    I’m not surprised at all to see BFBC 2 on that list as its the game I still play ALL the time.

    I am happy for GOD OF WAR 111 that is a truly artistic game, at some places i was shocked to see the way they moved camera. Camera angles were awesome in the whole game. I am a bit sad for ‘Black ops’ i love this game but i am so disappointed to see it received only one award. I was hoping to see it as the best game of 2010.

    Obviously Mass Effect 2 got in there.

    Notice how Halo Reach didn’t make the cut? I loath that game!

      I’m not a massive fan of Halo Reach either for some reason however, I know of friends who seem to enjoy playing it.

    I am not amazed at all to find BFBC 2 on that list because it is the game that I play always. However, I think my friends will also enjoy playing it.

    Hi there,
    to be honest, I am really jealous for these guys. I am in the mobile gaming business and can see that the online games are the most profitable industries.
    Many Thanks

    I definitely agree with your audio pick – BFBC2 is still my favorite to this day – waiting impatiently now for BF3. I love the way you can use 7.1 surround audio while playing and hear people coming behind you while still having some rad music in the background,

    I love Bioware – The Mass Effect series has been such a uniquely built RPG that I still can’t stop playing Mass Effect 2 over and over again… Great list, I’m not so into the strategy based games but Civ V is one I do tolerate.
