Arkham Asylum for me. When I played the demo, the whole thing seemed pretty bland and mediocre, but when I finally tried out the full game, I was blown away. It ended up being one of my favorites from 2009.
I used to wrestle in high school at heavywieght division. Before every meet me and our other Heavy had to have a match to see who would take the varsity starting spot. I was leaps and bounds better than him and always came out aggressive. One time he decided he wanted to become an immovable object so I couldn't score points on him. Eventually I made a mistake and he was able to score back points on me. I recovered, but never scored, so he took the spot. Everyone, including myself, was disappointed, but no one called me a pussy. thats rough.
G4 sold out about 5 years ago. Now the channel is Ninja Warrior COPS + some video games here or there. Over at G4 they have way too many reviewers. So much so that there is no way to get any sense of the personality of the people reviewing the games because on the outside looking in, they are just a name on a header. Not to pull the console wars card, but over at G4 (When they are even on the topic of video games) they are all serious X-Bros and always have a biased opinion toward the Microsoft side of everything.
