Introduction
We are closing what was a great year for all of second religion here on The Helper, video games. Whether you are sticking around with the old school World Editor or moving ahead and learning Galaxy, we can all agree that we had fun playing the new titles that debuted over the course of 2010. Here we are, starting a new tradition, The Helper Video Game Awards!

Just like the Member Awards and the Movie Awards, this is another time to throw your vote on the best and brightest. I highly recommend reviewing Wikipedia's 2010 Game Releases List.​

Missy wants blood!
Just looking now at the games I've bought in 2010, I've come to realise I only bought five new games. Just five. Compared to 2009, when there would probably have been 2-3 games fighting over each category, this year I'm gonna just put in the ones I think are relevant.

Best Graphics: God of War III
Best Audio: Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
Best Gameplay: God of War III
Most Customizable: Modnation Racers
Most Enjoyable: Modnation Racers
Best Adventure Game: God of War III
Best Music Game: Rock Band 3
Best Racing Game: Modnation Racers
Best RTS/Strategy: Worms 2: Armageddon
Best FPS: Call of Duty: Black Ops

So yeah, a pretty limited selection from me. Though RB3 was the better music game, GH had a waaay better soundtrack to it. Also, I expanded the RTS category 'cos Worms wouldn't fit anywhere else.

I am looking forward to a far better year in 2011 (Uncharted 3! Resistance 3! Ratchet and Clank! Mass Effect 2 (PS3)! Ummm... a lot more too, I'm sure :)).

Real eyes realize real lies.
As I look through the 2010 game list, I notice that I've missed a lot of games that could change my mind on some awards.

General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
