PS3 Attitude’s Most Wanted Games of 2010 – #10 Alpha Protocol

Submitted by on Monday, 21 December 2009One Comment

Alpha Protocol Welcome to the first of ten articles to feature on PS3 Attitude between now and the end of the year.

Not wanting you guys to suffer from PS3 news-related withdrawal symptoms, we’ve gathered the staff around a virtual table (we couldn’t find one that stretched across the Atlantic – sorry) to discuss what’s in store for us PS3 fans next year and created one article per title to keep you amused over the festive period. When you’ve re-surfaced from your turkey-induced coma that is.

As there’s little doubt that the PS3 had a stellar year in 2009, we thought some forward thinking was in order to find out just what titles have our collective hearts a-racing as we reach the end of one calendar year and are about to head into the next.

Implementing a complex and arcane voting algorithm, the guys and gals (ok, just the guys) here at PS3 Attitude each had the opportunity to rate just how much certain upcoming titles are personally desired. We then implemented the aforementioned algorithm in a strange and pant-less voodoo ceremony to obtain a descending list of anticipation.

Number 10 – Alpha Protocol

Alpha Protocol could very well be the RPG a lot of us have been eagerly awaiting. Originally penned in for a 2009 release, developers Obsidian returned to the workshop to fine tune the espionage-themed thriller and make sure we got the best spy-based adventure in 2010.

Players take on the role of Michael Thornton, a Bourne-type covert agent who quickly falls afoul to the insidious control exerted by the world’s black-ops agencies. With a vast and eclectic cast of characters, how Michael decides to progress in this dark and shadowy world is totally up to you. Choose a handler, have some dynamic conversations and, soon enough, you’ll be out on the gloomy streets snapping opponents’ arms, necks etc. with reckless abandon.

When in doubt, the green mist attack always works

There’s a roguish charm to Alpha Protocol that we just can’t wait to get our hands on. Our very own Majiesto sums up Alpha Protocol perfectly by stating:

With so many ways to play the game, you’re bound to spend plenty of hours in front of the TV – Majiesto

PS3 Attitude’s Most Wanted Games of 2010 feature is a series of articles outlining, funnily enough, the games the staff of PS3 Attitude “most want” that are coming out in 2010. The process of choosing ten games out of potentially hundreds used a fair and relative  system where votes cast higher in each individual list were weighted accordingly. Over thirty individual games were nominated during the discussion process before the top ten were ultimately ratified. It is virtually impossible that this list will coincide with your own. Feel free to post your top ten in the comments below. Just don’t expect us to agree with it 😉
