2010 was quite good to fans of old-school gaming. Big studios are finally starting to realize that people still like 2D games — and not just on portable platforms. The download platforms like Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, WiiWare, DSiWare, and Steam have really given games like these a place to thrive, but we’ve also seen some solid retail releases like Donkey Kong Country Returns. Let’s hope this is just the beginning!
Anyway, like last year, to determine our list of this year’s candidates, I turned to the forum to nominate their favorites. Below is the result — if something you think it worthy is not listed below, (first of all, shame on you for not being active in the forum ) please mention it kindly in the comments below and I may add it.
