Wall Street Journal Lists “Unsung” Videogames of 2010
10 Jan, 2011
In a feature published in the Wall Street Journal and on WSJ.com, technology editor Daniel Dumas compiled a list of titles from 2010 “that existed under the surface of the hype but still delivered hours of fresh action for gaming pro and rookie alike.” Though the attempt to bring mainstream attention to the hidden gems of 2010 may seem a noble endeavour, the games that are mentioned in the article may raise one or two eyebrows amongst the more well-informed consumers.
The games that are refered to by Dumas as having “existed under the surface of the hype” include low-profile titles like Fallout: New Vegas (the second best-selling title of October 2010), God of War 3 (the best selling title of March 2010), Mass Effect 2 (the second best-selling title of January 2010), and Gran Turismo 5 (came in eighth in November 2010). The other titles included on the list are Dance Central, Super Street Fighter IV, GoldenEye 007, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, and the most recent installment in the Tiger Woods PGA Tours franchise.
