Exclusive PS3 games that MUST be played in 2010

Sooo this is supposed to be a companion to the 360 post I just made earlier. With 2009 coming to a conclusion, I expect many happy gamers in the next year. Happily, I'm stuck in the crossfire of the 360 and PS3. With this generation of consoles in full swing, only the gamers are winning. With this in mind here is my top 10 of MUST own games for the 2009/2010 calendar year.

1. GOD OF WAR III --- March cannot come fast enough for PS3 owners. Kratos is the ultimate B.A. and this game alone has sold many,many PS3 systems.

2. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves --- Any PS3 owner that's worth their salt has played the first game. Just recently unleashed, this game is quickly becoming one of the best selling game in years.

3. God of War Collection -- Both God of War I & II remastered in HD and put on a single Blu Ray disc. Basically answering the prayers of ALL PS2 owners....not only are the games remastered in HD, but they now have trophy support for trophy collecting whores such as myself.

4. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time -- Another universe, another mission with the dynamic duo of this long running, fan favorite series.

5. Massive Action Game (MAG) -- Recruiting people for battle in January, this is basically a Massive Multiplayer Online First Person Shooter. With WARS of over 200 players at once, this game will be the most immersive online shooter EVER to date.

6. Gran Turismo 5 -- Seemingly in development forever, the latest and greatest launch date is for March of 2010. We'll see.

7. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 -- Debatable of whether or not this is actually an Exclusive or just a fancy Remake of the 360 version. If you like/love the Ninja Gaiden series and only own a PS3, this game is a must have.

8. Demon's Souls -- Sneaking into the limelight like a ninja hellbent on killing someone, this game is selling out all over the world and getting great reviews across the board.

9. Final Fantasy XIII --- Exclusive and guaranteed to be absolutely B.A. 'nuff said.

10. Deux Ex III --- Not much is known about this prequel, but I guarantee that if Eidos drops the ball on it there will be riots, rapes, and murders across the planet.

Where here is my list of the 10 Must have games of late 2009 and early 2010 for the PS3. Love it, hate it, whatever.

Exclusive 360 Games that Must be played in 2010.

With the 2009 X-mas season approaching REALLY fast I think its time to make a tally of the games that all 360 owners should at the very least rent. Most of these will be releasing in the next couple of months, but some others are scheduled for later in the 2010 calendar.

1. Mass Effect 2--- This game is going to be aces all around. I still have fond memories of spending late nights with the first game. Hopefully some of the bugs from the first game will be fixed, but either way I look forward to resuming missions as Commander Shepherd once again in January.

2. Alan Wake --- Yes, this game is still scheduled for release. Hopefully the last 5 years in development Limbo make this game worth the wait.

3. Halo 3: ODST -- What teenager/ Master Chief fanboy doesn't know about this game??? Already released, this game sold over 2 million copies in the first couple of weeks so I'm sure its on a lot of X-mas wishlists.

4. Forza Motorsport 3 -- The biggest racing game on the 360 is ready to deliver on Oct. 27th. The early reviews of this game are already pretty darn good, and it looks like not just an awesome racing game, but a great game overall.

5. Fable III --- This game is planned for late 2010, but the franchise fans area already counting down the days.

6. Left 4 Dead 2 -- The first game was a smash hit!!! Loyal players of the first game are gearing up for the sequels' release just before X-mas.

7. Splinter Cell: Conviction -- Sam Fisher is back, and the creators promise something truly amazing. Touted as the 360's answer to Metal Gear, Sam Fisher's exploits have revolutionized how stealth action games are supposed to be.

8. Crackdown 2 -- The GTA clone's first exploit was nothing short of awesome. This sequel should be nothing short of more awesome for fans of gangbanging sandbox games.

9. GTA IV: Ballad of Gay Tony --- Exclusive DLC for GTA IV coming out on October 29th 2009. 'nuff said.

10. Halo: Reach -- I know, a Halo game that isn't first on a list??? Well, I'm not sure what to expect out of this prequel other than I believe it will be awesome. Time will tell.

That's my list of "10 Must Have" games for the 360 I'll post my list for the PS3 soon.
