Following on from Time magazine's top ten games of the year, the Associated Press has chimed in with a list of its own. Unlike the eclectic and rather strange top ten of Time, it seems that AP has taken a walk on the safer side, picking a more predictable selection of titles while making sure to give console exclusives the fanboy-satisfying positions they need. 

Here is what AP rates as the top games of the past year:

  1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  2. Assassin's Creed 2
  3. Dragon Age: Origins
  4. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  5. inFAMOUS
  6. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
  7. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
  8. Borderlands
  9. Forza Motorsport 3
  10. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Certainly a list to make any Sony loyalist happy, I think you'll agree, and a far more crowdpleasing list. The lack of Modern Warfare 2 is definitely strange, though. You won't see many lists leave that little blighter off the list. 

So, what do we think of this list? Better than Time's? Worse? Nothing but pro-Sony BIAS? Let your thoughts be known.
