2010 Games Roundup - Nate

Greg made his 2010 games roundup a few weeks ago, so I figured I might as well follow suit. 2010 saw my most productive gaming year by a wide margin: I caught up with plenty of past hits and kept up with a lot of the newest releases as well. There's a list here for each, and you'd have to go pretty far down either to find a game I'd call "bad."

So, here they are: the 2010 games I played, the 2010 games I missed, and the old titles I caught up with. What a year it was. I doubt I'll ever get another like it, so I'm happy to recount all that it was in this post.

Holy Crap

That's a lot of games. Hat tip. And yes, keep up the great writing!

Epic win

Extremely impressive list of games, I'm jealous you have so much time to play and I say that in a completely non-condescending manner.

Keep up the stellar writing too.


How the hell did you find the time to play all those games? Do you work!?

Sure I work

Greg pays quite well for the content I write for the site.
