TIME Magazine has Alan Wake as their Game of the Year

December 15, 2010, By Christian Davis

The great thing about seeing a top ten list from a publication that isn’t known for videogames is the fact that you get vastly different opinions from what most people have. TIME Magazine put their list of favorite games of the year and there are some nice changes additions.

Here’s the list below:

  1. Alan Wake
  2. Angry Birds
  3. Red Dead Redemption
  4. Halo: Reach
  5. Super Mario Galaxy 2
  6. Limbo
  7. Super Meat Boy
  8. Super Street Fighter IV
  9. Starcraft II
  10. Mass Effect 2

Alan Wake tops their list and is well deserved.  Critically acclaimed yet underrated. Poor sales really affected the popularity of the game but those who were lucky enough to play it know exactly why it belongs on this list.

Red Dead Redemption and Starcraft II make it on the list which is expected, but Super Meat Boy, Limbo, and Angry Birds somewhat come out of left field and really has you question your own game of the year list. Most people have Call of Duty: Black Ops on their lists, but is it really deserving? Just some food for thought.
