Best of 2009 in 2010

  So, I decided to do something a little different before I do the obligatory top 10 of 2010 and top 10 looking forward to 2011. I'm doing a  look back on my top 10 of 2009 and re-ranking them compared to how much I still like them and how much they stuck with me.   Hey, it's different right?

Best of 2009 REDUX!


1. Modern Warfare 2

Old Rank: 1 Still #1, I sunk more time into this than anything else. If I didn't have friends that played it alot i probably wouldn't have, but even still I had more fun out of this game than any other. Don't be hatin'

2. Assassin's Creed II

Old Rank: 6 After playing Brotherhood, I appreciate AC II even more. I love this game. Great story, unique mechanics.

3. Batman: Arkham Asylum

Old Rank: 7 The single player experiences are what I remember most it seems from 2009. Fantastic story and mechanics. Best super hero game in a long time.

4. Shadow Complex

Old Rank: 5 Best Arcade Game Ever. The End.

5. Left 4 Dead 2

Old Rank: 4 Great game, but I ended up trading it in because I didn't want to pay to play on 360

6. Plants vs. Zombies

Old Rank: 9 Fun, funny, but quite short, I'm replaying this game again now.

7. Halo 3: ODST

Old Rank: 3 Halo is still my first multiplayer love. Okay game, but I rank it still this high because of the multiplayer, even though its the same as H3's.

8. Battlefield 1943

Old Rank: 8 Great multiplayer but I didn't end up playing it like I thought I would.

9. DiRT 2

Old Rank: 10 Racing games are fun, and this is one of the better ones. Overall, fun game, but I ended up not playing it that much.

10. Borderlands

Old Rank: 2 After most of my friends finished the game, I tried playing it by myself. I hated it.

A nice list. I went back and played some Arkham Asylum a few days ago and that game is still great.

I must admit, this is a cool idea, and I'm going to take your opinion with a grain of salt. Still, I find it a bit concerning that you "hated" playing Borderlands on your own, yet it still made this list. Same on your comments on DiRT 2. You seem to have some negativity towards quite a few games on this list.
 
Arkham Asylum is great, though. Good choice on that. Same with Assassin's Creed II.
 
Disagreements aside, this is a clever idea. Good work.

@AK_the_Twilight: Yeah the reason Borderlands was on the list was because it was on my Best of 2009 list at #2. Probably from playing with friends and maybe for all the hype I had for it. I don't know. Either way, when I tried to play it without friends, it didn't go so well for me. It's the least favorite of the games that were on my personal best of 2009 list.

Mine is Assassin's Creed II, which I'm currently playing for the first time, and it's fucking awesome. 
 
Resident Evil 5 is a close 2nd though... Fucking love that game.

I agree, RE5 was awesome, and so was all of it's DLC missions. The Co-Op in that game was so much fun. 
AC2 Was also pretty beast, I just platinum'd that a week ago.  Love that Subject 16 stuff, can't wait to get into Brotherhood.
