You're A Gamer In 2010... What Will You Do?

You aren't some kid holding controllers from different systems posing for stock photos. You're a real gamer. You piss pixels and bleed polygons, and ultimately the fate of gaming in 2010 is up to you. What will you do?

You've been a game publisher, retailer and developer, but we've saved the best (and perhaps the easiest) for last in our "What Will You Do?" series. Gamers. You can probably identify, and while heading out to your local retailer at midnight on a weekday might not make you feel particularly powerful, you're a part of the most influential group when it comes to what all three of those other groups do. If you don't buy it, it won't sell. Your voice has more power than any marketing team in the business. Change may come slow when you're part of such a large and distinguished group, but it will come, and your buying and playing habits determine which direction said change takes. What will you, the gamer, do to make 2010 a better year than 2009?

Press start to continue.

    Mass Effect 2, Darksiders, Splinter Cell Conviction, Super Street Fighter 4, Final Fantasy 13, Halo Reach, other unexpected AAA games = BROKE. In a good way

    Oh man, that stock photo is brilliant.

    As for what I'll do? I'll continue to support developers who actually care about their craft, and not just pump out mindless cash cow games. I'll also continue to skip any title that treats me like a criminal by including invasive DRM.

      Boycott Games for Windows Live! Eugh... Bloody MS wants to monopolise everything!
      Such a bloated, cracked, unnecessary POS front end for games!

    I only buy 3-4 games a year after much research and veiwing of gameplay on youtube etc... to make sure my money is well spent. 2010 for me?..... definately Battlefield Bad Company 2. The only game that re-energizes the FPS formula after the last few dreary years of FPS's that've come out...Looking at you too MW2 (which was just a copy past of their last MP) Finally to have all those vehicles again, blasting the crap out of all those campers hiding in buildings and watching it crumble MWAHAHAHA! This game will be revolutionary for me. Finally a game where you hit a building with some adequate firepower and the building reacts accordingly. Been a long time coming. No on is safe and like AJ Glasser says.... I'll be lusting after the tanks. Can't wait.

    I'll keep my this year's resolution which was not to buy a new game until I finish the old one ...

    I wont buy a GH game next year. And i wont cry out about the Wii Zelda not being released.

    There are definitely some games I'm checking out next year. It's going to be a good year for 360 and PS3, I think.

    Just Cause 2
    Battlefield: Bad Company 2
    Fable III
    Dead Rising 2
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Halo: Reach
    Fallout: New Vegas
    Dante's Inferno
    Bayonetta
    Dead Space 2
    Blur

    So many to choose from...

    I still keep meaning to finish ghostbusters...
    ac2 and mw2 came out and i just got sidetracked
