The year's best... PC games
Kick the console
2010: it's a wrap
So, 2010 been and almost gone and I haven't even had a go at WoW Cataclysm yet.
Back in the day, distracted from my NES, I imagined 2010 would have been more like the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey all world peace, dolphins and Roy Scheider. It turned out more like George Orwell's 1984 with the turnaround in the political climate - and the actual climate.
StarCraft 2: operation annihilate
But it's been a fine year for PC gaming, although you couldn't tell this from the increasingly reduced size of the PC gaming section in your local games shop. I for one can't wait till online kills those consoles.
Until I get my grubby fingers in the new WoW expansion pack, the first game to make it on my list is one of the most awaited for sequels in gaming history: Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty. This game is a legend and who doesn't love watching a tactical game replay with a cup of tea. ZERG!
There were several shooters available on PC worth a mention this year. I really enjoyed Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Singularity and both the Call of Duty games. Singularity was a whole new level of Cold War cool in single-player mode messing around with bullet time, but BBC2 wins hands down as a single- and multi-player game.
Meanwhile, over on BBC 2
It makes my list for the comical combat and all the POW WHAM! killstreak biz flashing on the screen. With my graphics card on max settings, buildings crumbled with amazing reality under my firepower and gave this game a level of visual detail that could never be replicated on a console.

**I wonder if i could build a roller coaster on that mountin
(Yes, I'm an optimist to think it might come out in 2011!)
I dont WANT to play some 14 year old arsehole whom has discovered the only point on the map where he can pick people off. THATS what spoils it for me, I prefer to play against my silicone opponents.
Frankly, the PC game scene is shite, a decent gfx card costs more than a 2nd hand ps3 or 360.
I just wish i could use a mouse and keyboard on my consoles and i dont care whether that confines me to single player mode.
I was derailed from reading this junk by
"I for one can't wait till online kills those consoles."
Just what the fuck is wrong with you?
Q: "Who doesn't have a soft spot for GW"?
A: Anybody who watched Warhammer destroy the British role-play gaming industry. And I speak as someone owning White dwarf in double-digits (i.e. back when it was good).
Mine's the one without polyhedral dice in the pocket - I went diceless.
