2. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
More Drake = awesome. Such a great set of characters. Naughty Dog have the whole narrative and gameplay stuff down, long may it continue. The set pieces were, also, absoloutely incredible. More please!
3. Batman: Arkham Asylum
Biggest Surprise of '09 for sure. A very well crafted experience all round. There's very little I would like to have seen changed. The sequel fills me with dread, however.
Wasn't a big diablo guy, but this is such a lovely, fun, rewarding game. I have about 5 characters on the go. Perfect in small or big doses.
5. Resident Evil 5
I played through this like 7 times. Still need that final playthrough on hardest though :(
I know people say that RE lost its way with 5, but it was still a fantastic action game regardless.
6. Shadow Complex
Hammered the crap out of this on its first weekend. Collected everything. Got most of the achievements. Really, really fun game. The "political" hoo ha surrounding it was a bit much, however.
Hello game from left field, how are you? Good? Oh, glad to hear it. Let's play!
8. 1 vs 100
Season 2 of this really is a step up. A great game to play while catching up and goofing off with long distance friends.
9. OutRun Online Arcade
OutRun is just a perfectly pitched and executed game.
10. The Secret of Monkey Island
I liked the remix of this. Again, not perfect, but an exciting glimpse in to a future filled of awesome remixes of beloved adventures!
