2010 was a great year for gaming, and picking a top game was decidedly hard. Mass Effect 2 might be one of my favorite RPGs of all time, up there with Morrowind and Dragon Age: Origins, but Halo: Reach was the apple of my eye in 2010. No Halo game commanded more of my time than Reach. You see, I'm hopelessly addicted to Firefight. I'm still addicted to this day (today I played 6 games of Firefight Limited on Halo Reach on PC).
Reach had it all: Crazy PVP, an engaging and riveting campaign, and of course my all-time favorite game mode, Firefight. I was so hooked that I decided I only really cared about Firefight and Campaign. I never once played an online match of PVP (although I spent days playing the Reach beta back in the day).
Halo: Reach had (and still does have) a profound effect on me as a gamer. It was Bungie's swan song to the Halo franchise, and it really resonated with me on so many levels.
I still fire up ODST to play its classic Firefight mode solo Heroic on Chasm Ten. I'll be hearing FIREFIGHT, SET START! in my head till the day I die.
And that space mission! Holy hell was that exciting back in the day.
