2010 proved to be a vintage year for gaming! From motion controllers like Kinect and Move through to brand new handhelds like the Nintendo 3DS, there was plenty of new hardware to salivate over.
But the real stars of 2010 were the games themselves. Due to overwhelming competition from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 late last year, many publishers held back their big name games until early 2010. It meant for a bumper catalogue of sequels and triple-A titles crammed into the past 12 months.
We've tried to pick our ten favourite games of the year, but it's been no easy task. The list could have easily been twice as long. Honourable abscences from our list include Metroid: Other M, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Dead Rising 2; all worthy of your money, but didn't quite make the cut!
So, in descending order, here are Tech Digest's Top Ten Games of 2010.

10 - Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)
Years and years in development worked out just fine for Gran Turismo 5. Sure, it may lack the soul of simpler racers, but if you're looking for an authentic, photo-realistic driving sim, then look no further. Lucky 3D TV owners can add an extra dimension to their races too.
