Soon you'll read, from Garnett, how we decided on our picks. It was a long process that involved a fairly standard scoring process. Needless to say, more than a few of us were surprised by the results; however, we all agree that 2010 was one helluva year for great games.
The fact that our picks are yours may differ, I think, is a good thing. If in the end we all could easily say, "Game X was the best in all these categories and nothing else came close" it would be an extremely boring year to be a gamer.
Thankfully, that didn't happen. We look forward to hearing your picks in our multiple categories as they filter online throughout the week.
