And The Award Goes To: Michael Beattie as Mordin Solus in Mass Effect 2
Complex Says: This one was a heavy-hitting contender for Performance of the Year—and it was for an alien! Mordin, humorous and ethically conflicted, felt more realistic than almost any other video game character in 2010, human or non. Michael Beattie made this possible. We should have talked to Mordin instead of our Uncle Jeff when we were wondering what a Shocker was.
