Best of 2009

Before we get started, I think the reader should understand two things: 
1) I only added games I actually managed to play in 2009. There's a lot of stuff I probably won't get to until next year like Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2.  
2) This list is formed and organized upon my opinions regarding what I considered to be my FAVORITE games of 2009, not necessarily which games I think are the best made. I would, for example, say all the games on the list are probably greater than or equal to Monster Hunter Freedom Unite but I didn't enjoy them all more.  
I will try to play more of 09's games before the deadline for this list is upon us. I JUST got Killzone 2 today and I'll probably get ahold of some other awesome games for Christmas and whatnot.
