2010 Sucked: It Was Not a Leap Year


Now these aren�t the only 2010 games that people forgot exist. Read the following list:
Darksiders, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, Global Agenda, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, Endless Ocean 2: Adventures of the Deep, Dante�s Inferno, MLB 10: The Show, Pok�mon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Infinte Space, Bit.Trip Runner, Red Steel 2, Just Cause 2, Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Warioware D.I.Y., Monster Hunter Tri, Trauma Team, Alan Wake, Blur, ModNation Racers, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Toy Story 3: The Video Game, Transformers: War for Cybertron, Singularity, Persona 3 Portable, DeathSpank, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Ivy the Kiwi?, Mafia II, Samurai Warriors 3, Dead Rising 2, NBA Jam, Super Scribblenauts, Bit.Trip Fate, Rock Band 3, GoldenEye 007, Def Jam Rapstar, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, The Sly Collection, Gran Turismo 5

And there is much more. But whose fault is it that people overlook how many decent titles that were released in 2010? Time. There is only 365 days in a year, 366 in a leap year. The year 2010 was not fortunate to give us an extra day to maybe play game we may have overlooked. Even if there was a leap year, no one can play all these games in a year. I�m estimating there were over 500 games released this year and that isn�t counting the number of games that have been released in the mobile phone market.

However, that is the beauty of time. The amount of time to the number of great 2010 video games ratio gives us that feeling of overwhelming. In my opinion, if I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of great games that came in a year that makes me forget the greatness of Enslaved, Singularity, and Valkyria Chronicles II as well as the abominations of Kane & Lynch 2 and Naughty Bear, I say it was an outstanding year in video games. Furthermore, I am glad to know that time is on my side to make these overlooked games cheaper and maybe available on other platforms.

Now did 2010 rocked or sucked in video games? I would say that the year sucked in giving us too many great games with so little time to play it. But, overall, 2010 rocked because of the large number of great games it gave us.
