Best Video Games of 2009

The Top Ten
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Product Image

Game of the year? More like game of the decade! A stunning game. The visuals are still the best around, the gamplay was tight, fast and explosive, the story was engrossing and involving and the cut scenes had some of the best acting ever seen in a video game. Along with the best singleplayer experience of the year was the amazing multiplayer, it brought something new to online gaming and is still going strong. This game has now shot Nathan Drake to the top of gamers hearts, an essential buy.

The fact that that PoS Modern Warfare 2 made the list over this is shocking. In Uncharted 2 you get great multiplayer, fantastic graphics, awesome story, and a great experience. MW2 gives you a four hour campaign, one man army danger close noobs, and the same rehashed bs from before.

ummmmm excuse me......#5????? cmon people this is not only the best game of 2009 it might be the best game of all time.......right behind zelda

Such a clear winner it should be called Phar Lap.

Batman: Arkham Asylum Batman: Arkham Asylum Product Image

The best superhero game ever. No doubt. Bringing the dark, deep and mysterious world of the dark knight on to our consoles was magical. No other superhero game has been as gorgeous, complicated, deep and gob smacking as AA. With a top notch story, genuine, classic voice acting and an incredible control system, Batman has set the bar high for following
superhero games. Only Bioshock matched the atmosphere created by the wonderful Rockstar team, an automatic classic.

I'm still waiting to play this one but I've played Arkham City, and if this game is half as good as Arkham City it needs to be no. 1.

It was game of the year

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Product Image

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was huge. Massive. Enormous. Shops were over run, it was on the news (for positive reasons and negative reasons) and it was supported by a huge advertising campaign. Now the biggest selling game of all time and getting the award for the biggest entertainment launch ever, Call of Duty was a success! Explosive action, huge set pieces and a amazing multiplayer makes it one of the best shooters ever. The multiplayer is still going strong, which is proof that it must be good!

This game made 1 Billion Dollars, It has a great cast of characters, awesome soundtrack, outstanding online, a neat ending and you really get into the game when your playing this. This is definitely a great buy. Although the Campaign isn't as good as Call of Duty 4 and the other CODs, the online is the greatest I've ever seen. We are expecting Modern Warfare 3 to come out at the end of 2011. Lets hope that MW3 will just be better.

Amazing! Best Call of Duty game ever made, it's made for entertain you, and it does still nowadays! Should buy and play it everyone!

Purely amazing. I don't get why everybody hates Infinity Ward for taking over Call of Duty. It just feels like you in the battle

Assassin's Creed II Assassin's Creed II Product Image

The first Assassins Creed was awful. There, I said it. Yes it may of looked great, but damn were those missions boring. However, Ubisoft listened and they changed what was one of the biggest let downs of video game history, into one of the most redefined sequels of all time. With a huge range of customisable outfits and weapons, AC II was more RPG esque than an action game. It contained one of the best characters in video game history and the story left you gagging for more. And who can deny it, who didn't go 'whoa' the first time they climbed the church spire in Florence?

I have never played Uncharted or Batman, but with how fun this game was I think that MW2 has no contest. This is a great game and should be higher.

Greatest game I've ever played no doubt it should be 1

This should be the best game not forth

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Product Image
Minecraft Minecraft Product Image

I don't really play it anymore, but you have to recognize its influence on all sandbox games. It has more youtube content than any single game ever, and is the 2nd best selling game of all time, behind only Tetris.

Any list of video games that DO NOT have this on there do not deserve to be on the internet. Should be #1 on every list.

This game is my most favorite single player game of all time. (also my second game of all time, just after Roblox)

This over uncharted 2 I'm not saying it's a a bad game but this is better

Left 4 Dead 2 Left 4 Dead 2 Product Image

This Game's Is Very Fun
The New Weapons are Amazing
The New Items like The Adrenaline Shot are Amazing
The Characters are Funny

Left 4 Dead 2: Amazing

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time Product Image

This game is incredible. How is it that this isn't even the main list? It should definitely be in the top 3, if not number 1.

Way better than uncharted 2, people only like games like uncharted because they look good but they have rubbish stories and average gameplay, R&C has the best stories, Gameplay, Voice acting, characters and writing I have ever seen in VGs easily the best game of they year

Best. Game. Ever! It has EVERYTHING! A really good story. Epic gameplay. Nice Graphics. The perfect 3D-Platformer.

Street Fighter IV Street Fighter IV Product Image

This is a 2008 game and does not belong on this list - it belongs on the best games of 2008.

The Saboteur The Saboteur Product Image

At first this game plays out like a film noir due to the black and white coloring. Initially it seemed odd. It was only once I starting liberating parts of Occupied France that the colours were alive.

As Irish saboteur Sean Devlin you can blow up the Nazi regime from Normandy to Sarbruken and everything in between.

Nathan Drake is just a poor man's Sean Devlin. The Saboteur is basically Sin City meets Inglorious Basterds.

One of those games that was under the radar when it first came out at Christmas 2009, but it's brilliant.

The Sims isn't what it's all cracked up to be. The Saboteur however is a rip roaring adventure.

The Contenders
Bayonetta Bayonetta Product Image

Crazy, weird, sexual, insane, confusing and damn right stupid are some of the words that will no doubt pop into your head after some one mentions Bayonetta. Never has a game scared me and left me sitting on my sofa with a lifeless face like Bayonetta. I mean her hair attacks enimies! Platinum games produced a screamer of a game with this, and a good start it was. There are just not enough words to describe it!

New Super Mario Bros. Wii New Super Mario Bros. Wii Product Image

Better than Minecraft

The Sims 3 The Sims 3 Product Image

MASSIVE improvement from the first two versions. You can finally explore the towns and not with rubbish graphics either! You can also go to some of the jobs that the Sims work at, making the game much more interesting as you're not sitting there and waiting for them to come home. More development with young adult and adult, making the lives longer. A LOT more options are included and it also allows you to continue your Sims experience online and with a great community by creating videos and stories by using the in-game video and camera options making it creative as well. But my all-time favourite addition has to be the playable ghosts and the new ways to kill the Sims. Also the cool ghost effects like the flames if your ghost died by fire. That's pretty awesome.

My favorite Sims game. I created my dream/perfect life in The Sims 3. In fact I've been playing the same save for nearly three years and I'm STILL not bored of it!

The best of the 4 sims games, been playing for years and haven't gotten sick of it!

I voted for this just to piss minecraft losers off,

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games Product Image
Wolfenstein Wolfenstein Product Image
Infamous Infamous Product Image

One of my now fond memories of 2009 has to be Infamous. Creating a new super powered, every day fellow with electrical powered was a stroke of genius by Sucker Punch. There's nothing like thunder dropping of the tallest building in the city onto an unsuspecting civilian! One of the most enjoyable and engrossing experiences of 2009.

A classic Playstation exclusive. Best superhero game that isn't Marvel nor DC. Fun gameplay, not a bad story, likeable characters. What a blast it was to play this

Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 5 Product Image

I love this game very much - one of my favorite. Also I adore Chris Redfield. It was great to see him again

Best resident evil game of all time

Wii Sports Resort Wii Sports Resort Product Image

I remember when I used to play this with my friends in the summer of 2009. We would laugh without a care in the world.

That Wii sports game has funny events

Metroid Prime Trilogy Metroid Prime Trilogy Product Image

How did grand theft auto beat this? I can understand resident evil 5 but come on! Metroid is a bit underrated iv'e heard people say super metroi di s the only good one but if they ould just sit down and play this game they would love it.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Product Image

In my opinion, the 2019 remake on 3ds takes this great game and improves on it.
