TA Community's 2010 Year in Review

Seeing as there are only 10 days left in 2010 and the massive releases are done, I figured I'd start a thread where we can all post our best and worst games of the year. You can post more traditional categories like "Best RPG," "Best Graphics," "Worst Gameplay," etc, or you can do something a little more bizarre or off-the-wall like "Best game to play while sitting on the pot" or something silly like that. I only ask that if you post anything be sure to post your overall game of the year along with any other categories you are providing. If you're not sure if a game came out in 2010 or not then be sure to check it out on AppShopper to confirm the date of release. I'll start us off:

Best Graphics: Infinity Blade

Best Multiplayer: Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus

Best Casual Game: Tilt to Live

Worst Noteworthy Game: Assassin's Creed 2: Discovery

Best Developer: Crescent Moon

Best Driving Game: Real Racing 2

Best Port: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Best Game No One Knows About: Call of Atlantis

Most Overhyped: RAGE

Best Sci-Fi Game: Galaxy on Fire 2

Best RPG: Aralon

Most Addictive: Plants Vs. Zombies

Games You're Sick of Hearing About: All Freemiums!

Overall Game of the Year: Aralon

OO I can't wait for the TA official thread on this! I'll contribute in a few days.

Although PW: AA is in my top 5, I'd still say GTA:CW is the top port, heh. That came out early this year if I remember correctly.

Good list, although I couldn't possibly limit some of those categories to one game.

Eliminate Pro at its peak was better than MC2:BP IMO. But that's a deteriorated game now.

I love Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus and haven't been able to stop playing it online since launch day. That's my Game of the Year.

Yeah hopefully we'll see it during the iTunes Connect lockout since they won't be writing about any new releases.
