TGD’s top games of the year.

At the beginning of 2011, I’d like to take a quick look back at 2010 and talk about our favourite games.

Originally I thought about doing this as an awards thing with votes, but I don’t think we are quite big enough for that to be a viable option. This is why I have decided to do this. Between today, 14th November 2010 and 25th December 2010 we’d like to hear from you. Yes, you, our loyal readers.

You see, I am going to gather up the games that people liked of 2010 with their reason and post them in a big article on New Years Day. How can you be featured in this article? In many ways.

The first is one of the easiest you could do. By posting in the comments below. Make sure you call yourself the name you’d like to be known by, then leave your comment in this form.

Game – Reason.

This way it’ll be easier for us to filter out between games. You can also send us yours via email. Send an email to in the same form as before. Just make sure at the end of the email you have expressed what you want your name to show up as.

The final ways you can get involved is using Facebook, Twitter and even YouTube. First Facebook. Again, using the same form go to our Facebook page and post on the wall. For twitter just send us an @reply to @TGDblog. If your reason doesn’t fit into Twitter’s 140 character limit, we recommend using a site such as And now for YouTube. I will be posting a video soon to our YouTube account explaining this idea. If you want to utilise this channel for your submissions then just comment on the video in, yes you guessed it, the same format. Or, since this is YouTube, you can include a video response. Just make sure you put in the description or title what game it’s for.

Finally before I go, I’d like to ask that you don’t all just say Call of Duty Black Ops. Yes I know a lot of you will feel that way, but if the article just contains 2 games then it won’t be a very fun read. By all means do say if it is the only game you have wanted/ the most fun you’ve had all year, just give it a bit of thought. Also, this article will be entirely community based. It will only contain YOUR thoughts. The TGD team will be conducting their own article to be released alongside the community article.

Nick out!

    ALAN WAKE and Heavy Rain why because i love there Plots

  2. Mass Effect 2 has to have been my favourite game of the year because of the epic storyline, customization and constant DLC support!

    Honourable mentions:
    Super Mario Galaxy 2 & Alan wake

  3. I’d say Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops. I know, Black Ops, but you cant deny that its an awesome game.

    sonic colours its just so much fun

  5. Marcus Lywood says:

    A tough decision, but for me, would have to be Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, mainly due to the soundtrack, which is probably one of my favourite ones, not just on PSN/XBL, but of all time too. That, and it’s a massive joy to play, despite the grinding.

  6. Tsar says:

    Black Ops – despite the problems on PS3 it is still an amazing game which raises the bar for the Call of Duty series. In particular being the first shooter to release fully in 3D was an amazing achievement and it was implemented so effectively that it’s now inconceivable that future CoD titles won’t include it.

  7. ben999xx says:

    Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood i love the plot and the multiplayer is a lot of fun as well

  8. Deadly Premonition — No game this year…actually in the last ten years has come close to affecting in such a way than ‘D’P has. Yes, the graphics and control physics are borderline shambolic, but that isn’t what true gaming is about. What ‘DP’ has is one of the most enthralling stories, well written dialogue and intriguing characters.

    I could go on and on, but there are enough reviews out there to have a look at and they will mostly say the same thing. ‘Dead;y Premonition’ will have you thinking about it when you’re nowhere near your console, you’ll be thinking about it at work, hell, I even dreamed about it.

    Deadly Premonition: Video game perfection.
