The WSJ describes GT5 and Mass Effect 2 as having “existed under the surface of the hype”

The Wall Street Journal has published an article titled “The Unsung Videogame Heroes of 2010,” listing the little-known titles Gran Turismo 5, Mass Effect 2, God of War III and pretty much every other completely massive game of last year.

The feature’s strapline reads: “No Mario Kart. No Beatles. No Halo. Here are the titles that existed under the surface of the hype but still delivered hours of fresh action for gaming pro and rookie alike.”

The games listed are Fallout: New Vegas, Dance Central, Mass Effect 2, Gran Turismo 5, Super Streetfighter IV, God of War III, GoldenEye 007, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 and The Force Unleashed II.

The author of this literally amazing piece of writing is a man called Daniel Dumas. For the record, this is running in the WSJ’s paper edition today.
