Our Five Favorite Games of 2010: Becky Jutzi

Becky Jutzi is our SEO Analyst at G4, which is a very technical position that translates to "I'm Going To Make You More Awesome." When she's not busy explaining to me why "Sofia Vergara's Boobs" is not really a good headline for my story about Mass Effect 3 DLC, she's busy playing games.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

The storyline for the entire Assassin’s Creed franchise is fantastic. I love how it twists history and conspiracy theories that keeps me wanting more. I'm not really into multiplayer, but AC: Brotherhood really brought out the fighter in me. The unique characters (harlequin included) and fighting styles were much more appealing to me than a typical multiplayer shooter, plus it's much quieter.

Read on for the rest of Becky's Top Five!

Civilization 5

I got hooked by downloading Civ 5's demo on Steam. The graphics were intense and the hex system was something I really enjoyed. So when the game was released, I downloaded it and haven’t looked back. I spent many a sleepless night thinking, "just one more turn." (For any RTS Civ player, we know that one more turn means 20+ turns, at least.) I loved how I had guns before Bismarck and I simply swept his empire into dust as he pushed his spearmen against my muskets. Last time he'll tell me I'm "weak."

Red Dead Redemption

The movie in the beginning was fantastic. I wasn't sure if this was a Clint Eastwood film or a video game. I still think it's both. I'm not very good with shooter games, but Red Dead Redemption has a better margin for error. The feeling of "aloneness" while wandering around pulled me into the realism of that time period, and even though I haven't finished this game yet (I just started it recently), I've already fallen in love with it.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I hadn't played WoW in two years and once I restarted this year, it has been hard not craving the world of Azeroth while living in “the real world”. The cutscenes and remastered questing system are impressive! Plus, I really enjoy playing Plants vs. Zombies er, I mean Peaceblooms vs. Ghouls. If you haven't tried WoW, this is a good time to start. So many people are re-rolling characters so you won't be a level one newbie in a sea of level 80s.

Angry Birds

Angry Birds for iPhone earns its reward for one of the top games this year. It’s portable and so easy to pick up and play. I am never bored waiting in line – I just click in and play a quick level with these cute, little, bitter birds. For $0.99, you can't find a more economical, yet satisfying gaming experience.
