  • Posted June 30th, 2010 at 19:22 EDT by Adam Dolge

God of War III, Heavy Rain, and Red Dead Redemption - the first half of 2010 has been a great time for PlayStation 3 owners. These blockbuster releases may have kept the gaming community busy, but we decided to see what the highest rated games of 2010 have been, so far.

We took a look at Metacritic to see just how well PS3 games have rated in the first half of 2010. The highest rated game so far is Red Dead Redemption, landing a 95 on Metacritic, and a 9.5 by PSU. The next highest rated game is Super Street Fighter IV, which received 92 and a 9.5 by PSU.

Red Dead Redemption is also the only game in 2010 to break the top 10 PS3 games of all time, coming in fourth place behind Grand Theft Auto IV, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and LittleBigPlanet. PlayStation 3 owners may be surprised to see some of their favorite games didn’t make the top 25. Some noticeable omissions include 3D Dot Game Heroes and MAG, which received an average rating of 77 and 76 respectively.

As for the top 10 rated games across all platforms, the PS3 and Xbox 360 are home to four, sharing Red Dead Redemption and Super Street Fighter IV. Xbox 360 is also in the top 10 for Mass Effect 2 and Bayonetta. The Wii is home to the highest rated game of 2010, Super Mario Galaxy 2 with an average rating of 98. The PC version of Mass Effect 2 also finds itself on the list.

Of course, Metacritic and our own reviews do not always match what gamers like, so this is a certainly a rough list. You likely have your own list of the best games of 2010 so far, and we’d love to hear your thoughts. The list below does not include DLC, but it does include disc-released expansions like Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening.

Without further ado, here are the Top 25 PS3 games of 2010, so far. If we reviewed the game, we included our score in parenthesis:
