You Wanna Review What?! Again!

You may recall that 12 months ago, I posted lists of our most wanted review assignments for 2009. Now celebrating its second anniversary, the "You Wanna Review What?!" e-mail thread is something that I send around to all of our in-house reviewers asking for a list of the 10 games that they'd most like to work on in the upcoming year. I'm not sure how the process plays out in our UK or AU offices, but here in the US, it invariably sparks some interesting conversations as editors compare lists in an attempt to avoid too much crossover and "wasted" entries. Personally, I keep my list a secret while I'm working on it and pay little attention to what anyone else is up to, but I did make a point of telling everyone what my number one choice is in the hope that nobody would be willing to fight me for it.

As in previous years, including games on these lists doesn't guarantee an editor the assignment, and you shouldn't confuse these lists with lists of our most anticipated games. Sure, these are games that we're looking forward to, but we don't necessarily want to review every game that we're looking forward to playing in 2010. Also, don't think that just because a game doesn't appear on any of these lists none of us are eager to get our hands on it. We already have a good idea of who will be working on some of the big upcoming releases--either because we're already working on them or because certain editors are obvious choices having reviewed previous games in the series. Anyhow, without further ado, here are the lists--minus the names of the reviewers they belong to and in no particular order:
