Gaming has had many years of awesome years. 1998: Half Life, Call Of Duty 2001: Halo: Combat Evolved 2004: Half Life 2, Halo 2. But then came 2007.
2007: Halo 3, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Cod 4, God Of War II, Assassin's Creed, Crysis, The Orange Box. Correct me if I missed anything, but that is one hell of a line up. It would be hard to top that, but 2010 has all the ingredients.
Here's the lineup: 2010: Cod: Black Ops, God Of War III, Heavy Rain, Lost Planet 2, Red Dead Redemption, Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines, Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock 2, Halo: Reach, Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, and more that have yet to be anounced.
Make your arguments against that, I doubt you can.
