Game of the Year 2009
As with my 2008 list - I decided to go back and do game of the year lists for the two years I felt I could realistically create them which also happened to cover the other years of how long Giant Bomb has been doing them.
Important Note: I was a student at the time (which I'll often mention) so my budget was limited. A lot of these games are borrowed. Also, unlike other GOTY lists I have on my lists page (which are generally written in the last week of their given year), this isn't strict about when I played the game. Example: Demon's Souls was played in 2016.
