The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2010!

  • Sad but I expected Ace Attourney: Investigations to rank low if at all since it was already late in DS life cycle and didn't sell well. I love it because it is so different from main games and has Edgeworth as protagonist along with good old Gumshoe and "a thief". Also it being more detective/puzzle is a bonus.

    I watched 5 minutes of Scott Pilgrim vs the World movie and it felt like a waste of time which I have never done to any other movie. The game is good but never finished it because my friends levels always reset and it was bothersome to even go through things again so there's that

    Halo Reach are one of those games I hold very dearly and I loooove the halo universe in general. read the books, spent unhealthy amount on the halopedia and what not. Reach got a darker story which I loved from start to finish and I recently played it through on PC again with the MC collection.

    To each their own, but if Halo ever pulled a COD Black Ops 4 and just axed the Campaign mode, people would absolutely FLIP THEIR LIDS because Campaign is everything to so many people in this series. Just not for me.

    Fun fact, in The Master Chief Collection, you can choose to install only the campaign or multiplayer component of each game, saving storage space/install time

  • Never played it, but I watched an LP that the SBFs did a while back, and I can see why people love it. I'm curious if the voters played around release or later on.

  • @sazime I played it just last year, I was very aware of the reputation, and it delivered very well in terms of what I hoped.

    Such an obviously flawed game that manages to be so incredibly enjoyable, DP is something that is almost hard to imagine existing, hoping that 2 manages to pull it out as well.

  • I watched a bit of Ian and Don playing this. I might watch their play through before I try the new one. I love The Missing so I’m kinda in on Swery.

  • Now that this is on the Switch, I definitely need to give it its due. If it's anything like The Missing, I'm going to be way down. I'm not as familiar with SWERY as a lot of others have gotten, but its rare for someone like that to be able to give such an authored feel to a set of games.

  • The sequel's ridiculous trailers got me interested in trying out the series as a whole. I'll probably try out the sequel for myself, but I don't know whether I should actually play this one or watch Ian and Don's playthrough.

  • The only thing I've heard about Deadly Premonition is it's a 'polar' game where people who've played it (mostly) are in two camps: Absolutely love it or absolutely hate it. For all the talk about it (and the out of nowhere announcement of the sequel), I don't I've ever really seen gameplay. Still, I believe this is the first entry on the list to have gotten multiple GOTY votes, so it does SOMETHING right.

  • I want to love this game so much, and there is a lot in there that I do love, but the combat is so bad that I just can't get through it. I read somewhere that Swery originally didn't want combat in the game but was forced to put it in, and it kind of feels like it.

    I bought it on the 360 about three months after it released here which actually made it 2011 for me for my first playthrough (Birth by Sleep was my GOTY when I compiled my top 10 back in 2010). The PS3 and Switch versions I picked up day one though, I just love it that much.

  • I really like the Whistle Theme in Deadly Premonition.

  • I played a lot of Nier Automata, but generally have always thought the first Nier looked more appealing. Platinum combat has never really been my cup of tea. I'm super stoked to play the remake when it comes out!

    What sorts of changes were made to Automata from this one?

  • One more game I had and started but could not bring myself to finish. Just like 3D Dot Game Heroes, I didn't hate Nier. It just didn't give me the itch and I eventually just didn't go back to it.

  • I didn't really know of the original Nier until the E3 press conference where Square announced they were working on what we would eventually learn to be Automata. I just went back to see if I what I said about Automata in our 2017 thread still applies, and it does:

    • "there are some things about it that appeal, primarily soundtrack and aesthetic design, but with certain concepts, I just didn't really see the personal push needed for me to try it. A couple of my turnoffs are having multiple endings and, while a neat idea, the switch up of play styles made this confusing as to how this game plays."

    But, in addition to this, I think if you play this a certain way, it'll like completely wipe your save/profile, or permanently remember a choice I think? An interesting concept that Undertale made even more popular from its Genocide runs, but still pretty neat.

  • I am holding off on Neir until the Remake. I’ve heard Ben speak about this game enough to know that it’s something I’ve very intrigued by, but I don’t want to play. Same goes for the rest of the Drakengard series or whatever it’s called.

    It’s funny cause there are so many average 5-7/10 ranged Japanese titles I’m intrigued by but can’t bring myself to try them like Dynasty Warriors Orochi or whatever it’s called.

  • I absolutely loved Nier. Along with Alpha Protocol though, I also remember it as a time when I really started seeing how picky gamers were starting to become. The game didn't get a lot of advertisement or coverage, most online knew it only as 'that game where the woman swears in the trailer' so I saw a lot of people simply assume that it's nothing special. The rest of comments I saw were people simply ragging on it for apparently looking like a PS2 game.

    I personally picked it up day one and it was such a magical experience for me. I had been listening to the soundtrack for a while prior to its release and that assisted in my excitement to finally play the game. It can be a bit of a slow burner at times but the game binds such a wide range of genres into one (including text adventure) so well that there's always something new coming your way and the story is fantastic.
