NICE! I actually have that one on my shelf, too. I was between Xenoblade Chronicles and Metroid Other M, and decided I'd just see which of those two games found their way to me first. So Other M won. That said, I have a few other 2010 games I may dip into later in the month. We'll see how it goes.

Yes! I’ll put Elminage down for a bit so I can dive into Alan Wake and Limbo.

Limbo and Kirby's Epic Yarn were two of my favorite games of the past decade. Those are really solid choices.

Pedantry go! Only games released Jan. 1 2010 are actually 10 years old. But then the numbers don’t look as cool, and I favor anything that gets more people playing more games.

Wiki list of 2010 Games


Such a solid year. DQIX is one of my favorite games of all time, and a lot of games released that year are on the short list of “Games prfsnl_gmr Really, Really Needs to Play” (Super Meat Boy, Limbo, Alan Wake, Bayonetta, Deadly Premonition, Enslaved, Vanquish, Ace Attorney Investigations, Xenoblade Chronicles, Castlevania: HoD, Castlevania: LoS, Ys Seven, Ys: The Oath in Felghana, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Nier, Secret of Monkey Island 2 Director’s Cut, etc.). I could play these all year too.

In 2010, I had only one child, and she was less than a year old. I was also only four years into my career, working like crazy, and restoring an historic home in my spare time. That didn’t leave a lot of time for gaming, and I missed a lot of these titles. (Also, I didn’t own a 360 or PS3 until 2013 or so.) Still, I got through some good games from that year, mostly Nintendo titles, and I highly recommend:

3D Dot Game Heroes
Bit.Trip Runner
DeathSmiles
DKCR
DQIX
Kirby’s Epic Yarn
Mega Man 10
Metal Slug XX
Metroid Other M
Professor Layton & The Unwound Future
Rage of the Gladiator
Sin & Punishment Star Successor
Super Mario Galaxy 2
VVVVVV

Once I started each of these, I really couldn’t put them down until I finished them. Have fun!
