Shooting to stand out

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Good year

While still short of eclipsing Modern Warfare, Black Ops was at least MW2's equal, proving Treyarch capable of filling the assault boots of the all-but-defunct Infinity Ward. Halo Reach, on the other hand, was both beautiful masterpiece and poignant swansong to Bungie's ten-year-long saga.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

But will I remember either as I drunkenly belt out Auld Lang Syne? No. I'll be remembering an entirely different game, one which finally saw its European release in June of this year. I'll be reminiscing about an RPG that breathed new life into death. I'll be recalling a game that came closer than any before in realising the peril and adventure of pen-and-paper RPGs.

And I'll be recounting every weapon, every ring combination, every warning message and every last run to harvest souls. The 2010 game I'll be going all gooey-eyed about as that clock strikes midnight and we say goodbye to 2010 is the seminal Demon's Souls. ®
