Still, whining aside, this has been a great year for console gamers – arguably a better one than it has been for PC players in many regards. Not only has there been a host of big-budget releases like Grand Theft Auto IV and Little Big Planet, but there's also been a regular influx of independent titles making their way to the consoles – games like Braid and N+.
If you ask us then our Top Five games of the year would probably have to feature a few of those titles too, as that's not only where we've seen the most innovation this year, but also where games have impacted us most directly. I could write another ten pages all about Braid and how it was, for me, the highlight of the gaming year... but I won't."
