CNN's Picks for The 10 best video games of 2010

Scott Steinberg, Kotaku friend and video game consultant extraordinaire, writes up his personal selection of top ten video games for 2010 on CNN. Topping the list? Heavy Rain.

Steinberg calls the Playstation 3 exclusive an "interactive thriller that raises the bar for adventure gaming by injecting genuine choice and emotion into its suspenseful nonlinear narrative. It features storytelling that's every bit as gripping and cinematic as anything Hollywood produces."

Red Dead Redemption lands the second spot on CNN's website, with Halo: Reach wrapping up the list at the number ten spot.

Here at Kotaku we've narrowed down our list of personal favorites to just four games: Red Dead Redemption, Call of Duty: Black Ops, NBA 2K11 and Mass Effect 2.
