Top 10 2010 Shooters
With New Year’s just around the corner, it’s time for us not only to prepare our resolutions, but our Top 10 lists for the year 2010 as well. What a great way to start the countdown to the festivities with a list of the Top 10 Shooters of 2010! Many notable titles were nominated, but only ten made the cut.
GoldenEye 007 (Wii)
The original GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64 remains one of the greatest multiplayer experiences on game consoles of all time. In a market where playing on the couch with buddies is difficult to accomplish due to online-only multiplayer modes, GoldenEye 007 provides excellent four-player split-screen action in the same way that Halo 2 gave us so long ago.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
Drivable vehicles, destructible environments, huge battlefields, squad-based multiplayer, and big guns. BBC2 has it all and offers some of the most intense multiplayer action while retaining a cohesive social experience where clans are not only welcomed, but they are vital to the success of a team.
Call of Duty: Black Ops (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii)
The latest title in the megaton hit series remains one of the best-selling games of all time. Presenting the most refined shooting experience with visceral combat, fluid controls, and explosive set pieces, it’s no wonder Call of Duty: Black Ops’ online multiplayer is one of the most played to date.
Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)
Gamers or not, most everyone knows about the Halo franchise one way or another. Halo: Reach succeeded in providing a more varied and more fun single-player and multiplayer experience while adding depth to the gameplay through selectable abilities. If you enjoy online multiplayer, there are few better options than Halo: Reach.
Mass Effect 2 (PC, Xbox 360 - PS3 in Jan. 2011)
Out of every title on this list, Mass Effect 2 is the only game that is the complete package. Mass Effect 2 successfully blends story, gunplay, roleplaying, and player choice to create an innovative and fully realized world that is different enough and better than its predecessor. Characters you care about, impactful choices in both story cinematics and combat, an experience that requires multiple playthroughs to fully enjoy, and other surprising elements you often don’t find in video games or any form of entertainment these days. And, you have a captivating experience that travels with you beyond the controller. A must-play game.
