Our Five Favorite Games of 2010: Mike D'Alonzo

Mike D'Alonzo is the Manager of New Media and Editorial for G4, and I have no idea what that means. But what I do know is that Mike D'Alonzo is an awesome person who is funnier than 90% of the cast of Saturday Night Live, and does a mean Edgar Wright impersonation.

NBA Jam 

I could play this game for hours just to hear what the commentary will be. I never get tired of it, no matter how many times I’ve heard it. Sure, it’s exactly the same game I played over a decade ago in the arcade, but it’s funny to see the new-look NBA with giant heads. But, really, there’s nothing like hearing that commentary. It’s hilarious. Boomshakalaka.

Peggle Nights

I don’t care what anyone says. I still love Peggle, and it was great when PopCap gave me a whole new set of boards to play, a bunch of new challenges to meet, and a new character to mess around with. It’s also hilarious in its way, with the dream life of all of the Peggle Masters consistently making me laugh. Whenever I have five minutes and nothing to do, you can find me playing Peggle on my phone. I can’t wait for more.

Green Day: Rock Band

Yeah, I know. But I had a really good time getting to the point where I could unlock and play all of American Idiot, which is really the entire point of owning the game. Then, all I wanted to do was play that whole album. It had nothing to do with points or achievements. I just like listening to it and being part of the band for a little while.

Red Dead Redemption

Sure, everyone loves this game, but I liked playing parts of it that seemed completely useless. I like just standing around and shooting birds, for example, just to see how many of them I can get. Sometimes, I also like riding my horse over a cliff, just to see what will happen. NOTE: This is why I should never be trusted with a horse, in case you were planning on getting me one for Christmas.

SmackDown vs. Raw 2011

In the same vein, there’s nothing quite so satisfying as spending many, many minutes beating your opponent with the ring stairs or smashing them with a ladder. I couldn’t really care less about my character’s story, as long as I get to inflict as much weapon-oriented damage as humanly possible. Why would you need a ring strategy when you can beat someone half to death with common carpentry equipment?
