Blog Donburiboy > 2010 in Gaming

Posted 04 January 2011

(this is from my actual blog )

If you have a blog, it’s your solemn duty to post lists like this, so for the next week or so I’ll look back on what I enjoyed and what I did not enjoy quite as much in 2010. This is not a list of stuff that was released in 2010, rather, stuff that I consumed in 2010.
