Time Magazine has published its top ten video games of the year, with GTA IV at number one.

“It’s a grade-A shoot-’em-up that doubles as an interactive novel and triples as a sly critique of American consumer culture,” says the piece.

Jonathon Blow’s platformer Braid comes in at number two, while LittleBigPlanet takes third.

The full top ten:

  1. GTA IV
  2. Braid
  3. LittleBigPlanet
  4. Rock Band 2
  5. Gears of War 2
  6. Dead Space
  7. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
  8. Hunted Forever
  9. FieldRunners
  10. Spore
