With 2011 just a few days away, now's a good time to reflect. Shacknews thought so, too, because it's running a series of Best of 2010 articles covering the finest games of the last year. 2010 had no shortage of fresh titles, and in addition to picking favorites in the usual genre-specific categories, Shacknews has awards singling out the best story, moment, and audio-visual experience.
The Shack doesn't appear to be finished giving awards out just yet. Most of the choices appear to have a strong console bias, though. I've not played Halo: Reach, but it's difficult to believe that the year's best shooter can't be experienced with a keyboard and mouse. Really?
On the PC, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was arguably the best shooter of the year. There were plenty of great games in the FPS and other genres, too. So, which ones did you enjoy the most? Did any provide particularly memorable moments, compelling narratives, or gorgeous visuals?
