Das Top 5 Games of E3 2010

By on June 21, 2010

After serious consideration for all of the games that I played at E3, I narrowed it down to my personal favorite games and some of the reasons why. These games are not in any order as they all were equally good in their own way.

Marvel vs Capcom 3

This was a no-duh moment as this fighting game not only looks AMAZING but also the game play is solid with a huge roster of playable characters. With new characters announced almost daily and the legion of followers at its side, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 easily looks and plays better then Street Fighter 4 ever will.


Brink has kind of been in the dark for a while. Announced last year at PAX, Brink has come a long way since the original gameplay was shown. It’s a standard FPS but it adds elements from several games that beef it up. Think Borderlands meets Mirrors Edge meets Team Fortress 2 all blended together into a nice mix of awesome. Along with its ability to meld the single player with the multiplayer, Brink is definitely one to look forward to later this year.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Being a big fan of the Assassin’s Creed series, I first met Brotherhood with extreme criticism as it seemed like they were killing my beloved franchise. After the E3 demo and the explanation of how the single player works, Brotherhood claims to have a full story that take place right after the end of AC2 and a sweet multiplayer in which you get to take the blade to your friends.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

What can we say besides it’s the new Zelda game? The graphics are sweet, the combat with the Wii Motion Plus was tons better then the last Zelda, and the beattle thing is a neat addition to Link’s arsenal. Even though it’s still like the other Zelda games, it won’t stop me from dropping my money for the game on the day of release.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

One of the next huge releases for the MMO genre, The Old Republic is Bioware’s first attempt at taking their superb story telling prowess and melding it into a multiplayer game for millions to enjoy. While the 20 minute demo of the game was limited, I felt more empowered and badass as a low level character then I ever did in any game at max level. As more details of TOR come trickling out to the masses, I am awaiting the day I find the game on store shelves.

About David Scarpitta

I am a critical guy, and love to review and give my professional opinion on just about anything. Though have a love for tech/gaming and music alongside the cinema. You can catch me consulting and developing the net any day of the week.
