Best of 2009

PsEG: Best of 2009
I'll start off by admitting I haven't played nearly enough of the awesome games from 2009 that are out there. It's a little embarrassing that I could only recall twelve total, in fact. That's why some of the bottom rungs here are decidedly questionable games.
Thankfully, there is no question in my mind which game is my Game of the Year for 2009, and which games deserve a solid runner-up status.
