Critics' Picks 2010: video games 

Ten of the best games that kept us home this year.

Xbox 360/PC/Playstation 3 (Bizarre Creations)
You know that feeling you get in Mario Kart? Dropping a banana peel or shooting a red shell? It's similar to that but way more street.

Call of Duty: Black Ops
360/PS3/Wii/PC (Treyarch)
CoD is like that best friend who comes to visit once a year. They're the perfect guest and you spend your whole day at work talking about them.

Fallout: New Vegas
360/PS3/PC (Obsidian Entertainment)
If the internet ever goes down, this is the game to have. A single-player campaign that eats hours like Pac-Man does pellets.

Halo: Reach
360 (Bungie)
Value. This game haz it. Awesome co-op, PvP multiplayer, a level and game editor, all wrapped up in a Halo game to boot.

Heavy Rain
PS3 (Quantic Dream)
A chose-your-own-adventure, Hollywood-style, serial-killer whodunit. Heads up—you can't turn back the page in this one but you can always play it again.

360 (Microsoft)
I bet your mom leans around a lot when she plays games. Mine does too. Playing Kinect, they'll still look silly but at least they'll be playing them right.

Red Dead Redemption
360/PS3 (Rockstar Games)
A game with a different kind of horsepower. This open-world western offers up a lot more good than bad or ugly.

Rock Band 3
360/PS3/Wii (Harmonix Music)
With the addition of a 25-key MIDI keyboard and stringed Stratocaster, rockers will finally be making that leap from pretending to performing.

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
PC (Blizzard Entertainment)
I have a friend who takes his laptop everywhere with him just in case he has enough time to get a game in. Just sayin'.
