I played a lot more than 5 games last year, unfortunately some great games were on the cut list so here we’re going to have lots of mentions. I also want to take the time to mention other titles that I played that weren’t bed either as well as the titles that I disliked for one reason or another. So lets kick off this list with the honorable mentions.
Red Faction: Guerrilla  – A little bit of shooting and a little bit of destruction, what more could you ask for?
Braid (PSN)  – The manipulation of time to create fun, yet challenging puzzles, this game is really something else.
Trine (PSN)  – There are many unique elements in this game, and there is no one way to complete this game.
Shatter (PSN)  – Breakout on steroids, the concept isn’t new but Sidhe was definitely onto a winner here.
Assassin’s Creed  – This game had so much potential but unfortunately they missed the ball with the repetitive missions.
Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction  – The welcomed entry into the next-generation, finally bringing Ratchet in High Definition.
Resident Evil 5  – Not normally a fan of these games, but the co-op story was a winner for me.
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune  – The story was interesting, but unfortunately there was too much gun battle for my liking.
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom  – Enjoyed the series on the PSP, unfortunately the PS3 version just doesn’t feel right.
Flower (PSN)  – I don’t know if you could really classify this as a game, it’s more of a relaxation exercise.
Uno (PSN)  – Uno is probably one of my favourite family games, if only there were more people online to play it.
Bionic Commando  – Controls seemed really janky, made the game unnecessarily frustrating.
LittleBigPlanet  – This game builds itself around creating content, something which I don’t have a knack for.
Ratchet & Clank: A Quest for Booty  – It’s a shame Insomniac were forced to make this, worst title out of all the series.
Resistance: Fall of Man  – I just don’t like FPS’, and I’m not that great at them either.
Tony Hawk’s Project 8  - First time the series is HD, doesn’t make the game any better though.
Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground  – This game series is becoming stale, each game since Underground 2 is progressively worse than the last.
Noby Noby Boy (PSN)  – There is no objective to this game, you just eat everything and then poop it out.
Pain (PSN)  – This game is so repetitive it gets boring, and they charge you extra for extras.
Rag Doll Kung Foo (PSN)  – This game is really basic, it also doesn’t help that I don’t care for the genre.
I know there may be some people that disagree with where I’ve placed some of the titles, but remember that this is my opinion and it reflects what I look for and what I enjoy in video games. If you haven’t already, you should at least rent some of the titles I have high on the list, they are well worth checking out.
