The Top 10 Video Games of 2010

Starring a freakishly tall librarian type with a beehive hairdo and full-body spandex, Bayonetta might have been the most embarrassing game of the year, but it was also one of the most fun.

Not since Devil May Cry 3 has a third-person brawler combined so much speed with so much power — and the looks to match.

VOTE:Bayonetta in the Laser Orgy 500.
