The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2010!
@axel To whoever else gave Metroid: Other M 1 point, you're the real champion here.
It was meeeeeee! It was still fun despite the crappy story.

Love these recaps so much. A couple of observations that stand out to me:
Having Battlefield: Bad Company 2 beat out Black Ops and Bayonetta by virtue of a single vote (in terms of place) is probably the most brutal/heartbreaking of a cut-off I've seen in these threads.
Seeing Metro 2033 get so close hurts me. I may not have had the most glowing praise, but its still a good game and I'm not gonna lie, I always seeing as many of my nominees make it as possible (regardless of their final place on the list)
I had Final Fantasy XIII written down as a 2009 release, then seeing this had me realize that was the Japanese date. It wouldn't have changed anything, as I would have it below Re:Coded, but just a brief thought: The Final Fantasy I actually hate because of no opportunity to grind in an extremely hand-holding corridor of a game. Not a fan of the story or characters either, and one of only three Final Fantasies I've never been able to finish because of its gameplay.

Fable 3 gets shit on because of how much Molyneux hyped it up, but it's still a fun game in its own right. Sure, you can cheese the ending really hard so that you save everybody whilst being a nice person, but even that I don't think is too egregious. Fable 3 has a vibe that is unparalleled, and I think it's surprisingly great at world-building. It's probably the worst Fable game, but it's still a great time.

@e_zed_eh_intern From what I remember, it worked fairly well. I haven't played split screen in a while, but I think it was pretty well optimized, and used a top and bottom split rather than side by side.

I know we're gearing up and getting hyped for the Games of the Decade thread, but I just to be the first to go ahead and put it out there as the voting for that opens and we get underway, (and as this thread ultimately tappers off), to suggest the move to the Hall of Fame subforum. Doesn't have to be today or tomorrow, just soon so this won't get lost.

Multiplayer was fun for like 10 hours before it got samey
I feel like the repetitiveness made it feel more competitive because you had rely more on fundamental FPS skills than MW2. I agree with you on the campaign, though.

Welp, only one game from my list made it in.
Super Meat Boy and Bayonetta not making the list is a crime.
#3: Kirby's Epic Yarn
#2: Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions
Super Meat Boy
Putting this thread into Hall of Fame! :)

I'm surprised about SMB. It is one the best representative of ''try-die-try again'' mechanic. No Mafia II is another shock. It's use of open world is really nice, not distracting and just there for the atmosphere; story, gameplay, characters and ending are also good. DK: CR is a really great platformer, I also love Tropical Freeze. Another game I want to say something about is AC: Brotherhood. It's my favourite from Ezio trilogy.

@axel Every time Brandon Jones reads through these lists, "Rockstar can't win".
@shoulderguy I specifically highlighted it in my post to twist the knife a bit more!
