Our Five Favorite Games of 2010: Blair Butler

Blair Butler does triple duty at G4, serving as a writer on Attack of the Show!, being a comic book correspondent (and cover model) for Fresh Ink, and talking about all things MMA. Writing, reading, and ass-kicking. She's real Renaissance woman.

I have to confess that this year I’ve been absolutely slammed writing for Attack of the Show and doing the Fresh Ink and MMA Chokehold – so my free time has dwindled to almost nothing. I still have Fable 3, Dead Rising 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and fraking Assassin’s Creed 2 (yes, I’m not even talking about Brotherhood) shrink-wrapped near my console – and totally unplayed. It’s getting embarrassing. I must also confess that I take the Native American approach to gaming – I use every part of the animal. That means I really did try to snag most – if not all -- of the achievements on each of the following titles. And I loved (almost) every minute of it. 

Read on for Blair's Top Five!

Bioshock 2: Minerva’s Den DLC

Let’s be honest. The first Bioshock is one of my favorite games of all time. The sequel – not so much. But that’s why I have to give huge props to the Minerva’s Den DLC – which managed to re-capture some of the emotional and narrative resonance of the original.

Red Dead Redemption

Yes, I got 100% completion. Yes, maybe I’ve wasted my life. But the way this story subverts so many of our country’s founding myths -- and casts a jaundiced eye on any romanticized notion of the “Grand Old West” is terribly compelling. Deadwood isn’t on the air anymore – but I’ve still got John Marsten.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare DLC

You play a zombie cowboy who rides a unicorn that farts butterflies and rainbows out its ass. As if I wouldn’t love this.

Fallout: New Vegas

Sure, the main quest and story aren’t nearly as good as the one in Fallout 3. I still happily poured 60 hours into multiple play-throughs. Nothing like repairing weapons in the desert! Also, Vault 11 gets mad props for going all “Shirley Jackson.”

God of War 3

Best looking game of the year. Also, you get to button mash a dude’s head off. BURLY.
