About
I grew up deprived of videogames, all I ever wanted was an NES and my parents said no way. So as soon as I moved out I bought a Nintendo 64 and haven't looked back since. I love most types of games, mainly shooters, action and Nintendo first party stuff.

As I near the end of Red Dead Redemption I've been thinking, could this be the best year for videogames ever? Already I've played three games that I would put in my top ten of this generation: "Mass Effect 2," "Read Dead Redemption," and "Alan Wake." As I put some more time into "Mario Galaxy 2" that might get added to the list as well. Even some of the games I wouldn't put on that list would've made my top games list any other year like "God of War III," "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" and I'm even loving the new "Prince of Persia." Plus we've still got "Halo: Reach," "COD: Black Ops," "Metroid: Other M" among other promising titles to look forward to. It's an embarassment of riches and a great time to be a gamer, even if it is hard on the wallet. Thank God for Gamefly.




Honestly, I can't think of a year that had this many stellar titles since 1998 or possibly 2007, but if you look at the sheer volume of outstanding games this year I think 2010 takes the cake. And I've got a theory why. With the impending release of "Kinect" and "Move," it's clear that this hardware cycle is going to last at least a few years longer than previous generations. As a result, we've got game developers really mastering the intricacies of the systems and pushing them to their limits. It's mind-blowing to see footage of "Rage' and "Crysis 2" running on an Xbox 360, I am surprised they can squeeze such power out of the noisy box. I think in the next few years games are only gonna get better as developers can concentrate on this generation's hardware rather than split their time trying to figure out new systems. Historically, some of the best games come out late in a console's life cycle and if these trends continue we're in for a great couple years.




Again, I am absolutely overwhelmed but all the good games that have come out this year. So many anticipated titles delivering on their promise, it's tough to keep up. And I haven't even gotten into downloadable titles. I just hope developers keep it up. My biggest complaint right now is that I don't have enough time to play all the great games that are out, and that's a pretty sweet situation to be in!

Thanks for reading this. I've read Destructoid for a couple years but just recently got an account and this is my first blog. If you have any thoughts, please let me know!
