2010's Best: Top 5 "Shame On You For Missing It!"

Few hardcore gamers can play every game on their "to do" list in any given year. It's just a frustrating fact.

This is why we all have priority lists and why certain titles inevitably fall on such lists; we must make room for the most anticipated. This is why you may have pushed aside something like Bioshock 2 as you saved your cash for the likes of Red Dead Redemption, God of War III and Final Fantasy XIII. But there were more than a few titles you really shouldn't have missed in 2010 and if you've got a few gift cards burning a hole in your wallet, we've got some "catch-up" suggestions for you. Here are the Top 5 "Shame On You For Missing It!" titles of 2010:

5. Yakuza 3

Even though it routinely earns plenty of critical acclaim, the series just doesn't excel on the sales charts in this country. Admittedly, it caters to a smaller niche market; those who really like Japanese culture and don't mind subtitles. But regardless of personal preferences in setting and style, Yakuza 3 remains a solid, entertaining title that gives you plenty of bang for your buck. Featuring another surprisingly emotional and in-depth storyline, a ton of brutal hand-to-hand combat (for which the franchise is known), and even a bit of exploration, the game is well worth your attention.  Oh, and Kazuma Kiryu is a super huge bad-ass.

4. Bioshock 2

As I mentioned above, the game's February 9 release date gave many forward-thinking gamers pause. March was gonna be huge - and oh, it was - and it was important to conserve funds. The title did relatively well on the sales charts, but this is more geared to the PSXE community: we know FPSs aren't exactly popular around here and even though Bioshock 2 is part-RPG, it still looks like a regular shooter on the surface. Secondly, because the original came late to the PlayStation 3, Sony fans are, consequently, a little late to the Bioshock party. Therefore, a whole lot of PS3 copies of the game went unsold and we're telling you...that's a mistake.

3. Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype

Many PSN games often fly under the radar, especially when compared to the big-budget productions, but this is one PSN exclusive you shouldn't have missed. Sure, Joe Danger is almost a shoo-in for downloadable game of the year (and arguably the best digital game to date), but Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype is an extremely polished, oddly addicting side-scrolling shooter that keeps you riveted. Vastly superior to the original, this sequel is simultaneously one of the prettiest and most fulfilling PSN titles currently available. You can nab it for a relatively cheap price, too, so don't waste another minute...you'll thank us, especially if you love old-school arcade space shooters.

2. Singularity

And speaking of shooters, Raven's super fun FPS is absolutely one of the year's most satisfying experiences. Singularity surprised the hell out of me (2009's sub-par Wolfenstein couldn't possibly have been made by the same team, could it?), and I completed it with a smile on my face. The combination of rock solid shooter mechanics and cool time manipulation skills worked exceedingly well, and even the length didn't disappoint. The story was more than passable for the genre and for the record, there is no cooler weapon than the Seeker. Even if FPSs aren't your bag, there's a darn good possibility you'll have a blast with this one.

1. nail'd

Speaking of surprises, no game knocked me off my feet quite as much as nail'd. If you check around, you'll see similar viewpoints: critics were just plain shocked at the game's sky-high (pun intended) fun factor and outrageous sense of speed. The track design is almost unparalleled this generation - just try it if you don't believe me - and you will find that it's very, very difficult to drop the controller. It sort of came out of nowhere and unfortunately, it had to contend with the fall juggernauts. It's unlikely that it brought in a ton of cash and that's too bad; it's just so insane from top to bottom. Besides, it's a nice contrast to the more serious titles of the late-2010 period.

I've played none of these. I occasionally thought about Singularity, but for some reason never got it.
I have no desire to play any of the other listed games.

Go buy Yakuza 3 now even though they cut the hostess clubs from the us version.It's got more depth and story than gta 4 and red dead redemption.
Or if you're too busy buy Yakuza 4 in March because it's going to be 10 Times Better.
Seriously u should have played Yakuza 1 and 2 Kiryu Kazuma What a Badass!Kratos move aside!

As I don't buy Activision games(unless I'm conned into it by people demanding them as sodding presents off me even though they're my wife and KNOW I hate the company and feel COD has been diluting itself for our cash since COPD4!! She thinks it;s funny I have to have a broken game ,like Blops in the house! Not that COD is rubbish it's just that, well you know, Kotick!)these days I've been waiting til Singularity comes round on my rental list as I've heard some great things about it-hell I even know one fella who claims he played the multiplayer(must have been launch day when twelve others thought they'd try it out!)and he said that was OK too! Certainly annoys me that new IPs like that were allowed ZERO marketing from Acti when they waste so much on COD which would sell anyway! You'd get to thinking they WANTED it to fail so they could shill the devs into making COD map packs!

Ah, maybe I'm just too cynical. Whatever, looks a good shooter from the outside.


Still haven't seen a lot of Nail'd so reserve judgement on that one but was massively let down by the sloppy seconds of Bioshock2 and hopefully the magic returns with Ken and Infinite next time round as the series still has a touch of genius under the skin even if much of it was stolen from System Shock anyway.

Soldner was cool, though, and as one of the few who liked the first game(a good, if briefly shining, distraction the other year)I was more than pleased to see a sharpened follow up come round.

Asn for Y3:EVERYONE should at least try it out. By that I mean give it at least three hours to seep into you. If you don't like it after that then fine-it means you just don't like the game but any less and you risk not allowing the story to hook you and writing off the combat as slow and shallow when it's all about finding yourself in it's timing to get the best out of the game.

When you DO give into it Kiryu is a dude, the story is cutting and emotional(as always-story is always a cut above and the Jp voice work is excellent), the combat satisfying, bosses more varied than ever and more open world touches than previous games with a host of cool minigames to waste a few hours(some are great, imho, with the golf and the arcade shooter my faves)on too. Great stuff and cannot wait for Y4 and TTE to come round starting in March! Great to see it included here too.

The games that surprised or satisfied me miore than I expected were , prolly, the GOW/Zelda inspired Darksiders and the, looking to be, criminally underselling in the UK, Vanquish. Not that I expected Platinum and Mikami to fail just that I wasn't thinking it would be quite so exhilarating AND so Japanese in the current climate out there. I'd steer people in their direction rather than the "trendy to rate even though it sold like rabies flavoured toasties" Enslaved-which, imho, has practically NO gameplay, looks a step backwards from HS in every regard and proves to me that a game can't get by on good characters and good story alone.

Also, WHAT are they doing to DFante and why are they being asked to do it? Capcom just cannot sink any lower! Seriously, who tyought DMC? Ninja Theory! Sorry, NT rant over-seriously, though, why did they have to maon so much about Sony and HS sales? Had Sony not come in and bought the IP when they did the studio, which had been struggling after mismanaging development for the original Xbox would possibly have gone under. Breaking even is probably more than they really deserved and I'm sick of their bleating.

Doesn't help that I really LIKE HS and would have loved a sequel. Maybe someone at Sony would let Cambridge loose on it as they worked a lot on the first and deserve actual games to make.

Bioshock 2 was awesome i need to play it more. i want to play both bioshock 1 and 2 over again.

singularity was a really cool game also. really enjoyed the time manipulation and the way the story worked out. really sucks that the multiplayer was dead i didnt even get to try it. not one person in the world was playing lol.

i will have to game fly the rest and check them out.

I was expecting all of these to be high-profile productions. Yeah, I only glanced at the fact-o on the front page. That being said, I did play Bioshock 2, and while it wasn't as good as the original in the way that it grabbed me, it was still better than most shooters.

Nail'd I'd barely heard anything about at all, but with GT5 starting to annoy the crap out of me, I think I'm burnt out on racing games... until TM, or a new Midnight Club comes out.

Soldner-X 2: As always, I'm unable to buy games off the store, and even if I were, I'd be unwilling. I'll pick it up the day that Sony offers me a PSN Greats compilation.

Singularity interests me, but I'd like to give it a rent first... Unfortunately, the rental store in town isn't big on keeping up with game releases, so they stick mostly to the big titles. I think the only new ones in there from this year are CoD, GT5, Bioshock 2 and... No, actually, I think that's all.

And Yakuza 3 I've been wanting to get, as I remember playing, and enjoying, a demo of the second one, but bad timing, and a stupid backlog have forced it to the sidelines until God knows when.
Peace.

Played Bioshock 2. Great game. I was one of the few who actually liked it better than the first one. I saw Singularity on Amazon for $20 bucks this morning. Not sure if the sale is still going on, in case anyone is interested in picking it up last minute.

Bioshock 2 > Everything else on that list. Okay actually I dunno cuz I passed on those others. They don't interest me either but I have to side with Ben's opinion that Bioshock 2 was a tad underrated or at least underappreciated. Yeah nothing is gonna blow you away like that first game but 2 is really good. I can't wait for Infinite.

I'll consider Yakuza 3 cuz the demo was decent, but not till it be cheap. I passed on Darksiders today for 10 bucks cuz I've rented it and it isn't even worth that.

Gotta save up though kids, 2011 is gonna be insane.

Bioshock 2 did not get the love it deserved. It had some amazing moments and the ending was great, but the change in developer hurt the game in some peoples eyes. I had a blast with Singularity as well. Shame that one got thrown aside by the Activision Kotex Machine.

Yes Bioshock 2 is freakin' sweet and Singularity is very fun indeed. I love the whole time manipulation you do in it, story is fairly good as well.

Yakuza 3 is still on my list as well as Soldner x-2 but nail'd just isn't really my type of game.

I just picked up Bioshock 2 on Christmas eve, but it's got to go in my backlog of games for the moment, as I'm playing too many games on a bunch of different consoles right now.

But I still want to pick up Singularity, Yakuza 3, bigtime, & Nail'ed just for the hell of it.

I will have to say "NO" to Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype though. Granted, it's a great "Looking" game, but it's really not my style.
Plus, since it's a D/L title & not on disc, I won't need it for collection purposes either.

only game there i really enjoyed was bioshock 2.
i was really worried that a completley different studio was working on it, i was worried that 3 different studios were working on it i was worried they would screw it up.
than i was even more worried when i found out you play as a big daddy instead a human, than when i found out there adding MP it was the final nail in the coffin.
luckily my fears were unfounded, sure its slightly different to the original, the gameplay is slightly different but remains still reminiscent and recognizable to bioshock.
i cant say which is better because 1 they both have there ups and there downs, but more so they both are so different and its so hard to say which style is better.
if i had to put money down on it, id choose bioshock 1 simply because the story was more engaging and the gameplay was also more engaging because you felt like a small fish in a big pond, instead of the massive man eating killer shark!

the rest really did not impress me, singularity is ok but certainly not a must play game.
if you like time manipulation and for some reason think we dont have enough shooters out there, than ok. but seriously WTF thinks that!?
yakuza i simply did not like because of all the babysitting.
i thought yakuza meant the Japanese mafia, not babysitter!
as for naild, well its hard to play a game when its not out yet.
one game im really itching to play thats actually out is EAs create, love puzzle games and we rarely get any.
sad EA did not bother to release it here.

I'm sort of compelled by Nail'd, but it seems to encroach on Motorstorm's turf a little. Maybe I'll give it a go if I find it cheap enough. I've been meaning to play the SOldner X game's. They look like good old school shooter fun.

The Bioshock's have my respect because I know they're quality, but they sort of creep me out so I don't plan on playing them. Basically, the whole horror'ish genre isn't my bag.

Sorry its been a long time since i have poted any comment at this web site , I'v been really busy over the last couple of weeks at my work beside Gran Turismo is taking a lot my time ,
I have played both Bioshock 2 and Singularity ,and I really enjoined the Campaign part of both of them specially the later one I can describe it as one of the most entertaining games ever but still I couldn't manage to get a single multi-player game,because there wasn't any online users , I really recommend all player to give it a try and it was mentioned above it has a healthy amount of time for a single campaign .
Off topic I am really enjoying GT5 and I can see myself spending all the time playing it till I can get my hand on KILLZONE3

aside from Yakuza, all of those other titles I was glad to miss, because to simpily put it, I didn't care for them.

I never cared for any of them aside from Bioshock 2 which I'm still waiting for further price drop.

So.....should I wear a plastic bag over my head next time I go out?

Seriously? Bioshock 2 is going for about 1/4 of the original retail price now.

I got BioShock 2 for $10 at HMV. Somehow, it got into Santa's hands and then back into mine.

I got Bioshock 2 in september for about 18 USD and haven't finished it yet. I'll try to complete it by the ende of the year... damn I've only got 4 days.

And I just grab singularity and it's a damn fun game.

It's a shame... too many games so little time.

Bioshock 2 isn't for me... I tried it and got frustrated by it. That genre isn't my cup of tea... Nail'd however, hmmm this is the first time someone talks positively about it, I saw gameplay and I was intrigued. Did not buy the game cause the amount of negative reviews but also the amount of really really good games that came out last couple of months. Maybe I will pick it up wen it hits the bargain bin.

Enslaved should be on this list. And Vanquish. So many people passed on them.

Hey Ben, can you make an article that's the total opposite of this one. The games that we bought, but should have skipped? I would like to hear your opinion on that topic.

Ok Ben, that's alright. I can't wait to see what wins in your awards. Especially in the music category.

FF14 for PC was total elephant dung and i bought the collectors edition too cause im a big fan of FF! It was such a waste of money. All its there for now is for my FF collection 1-14. Other games that should've been passed are Naughty Bear, Iron Man 2 Alien vs predator. Well if you guys bought those games =/. I think alot of people know what kind of games they should stay away from. C

BioShock 2 imo is the only game deserving of this "award"

But this sequel never gives you that same breathtaking moment of experiencing Rapture for the first time like the original BioShock did. That wow factor doesn't make the same impact this time & in no way does it touch the original BioShock & it's villain, Andrew Ryan.

It is still a sweet game though with some good ideas but the fellas at 2K need to move out of Rapture & thankfully with Infinite coming up, they have done just that.

Singularity surprised me for sure . Never expected it to be this good .Aging you re opponent at light speed never got old .

Biggest surprise of the year for me .

Bioshock 2 is a fantastic game, but it isn't necessarilly underrated. The story was in my mind still enthralling but a little weaker than the first (better ending in this one though). Gameplay wise the second game made unbelivable improvements and is superior in that area.
Other than that, I have no interest in Yakuza (couldn't get into the demo) and I'm still wondering about Singularity. Now knowing what 2011 will be like I don't think I want to spend extra money for games that are pretty good compared to the likely extraordinary exclusive titles of the new year.

I still can't wrap my head around MODNATION RACERS not being reviewed and THEN not mentioned on this list?

WTF is Ben's problem? Modnation Racers got an average of a 9.0 on most gaming sites and this underrated and STILL relevant and updated game, which is also a PS3 EXCLUSIVE, goes ignored on this strictly Playstation web site.
Way to go guys.
It was only one of the best games of the year and easily on my top 5 for 2010 (excluding nothing)
