I guess he had to list something for the 360 crowd.
I find it funny that he has to list just halo stuff for the 360 and can only make space by not listing PS3 games.

But really this is a standard list from someone who does not know what their talking about and have just listed the first names he found by running a google search.

I am looking most forward to in 2009:

Empire: Total War (PC)
Starcraft 2 (PC)
Mass Effect 2 (If released this year) (360)
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor (PC)
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (360)

You should also consider the possibility that for the mass public K2 is not all that well known and even with all the hoopla on gaming sites, it still may not be greatly anticipated outside of the sony faithful simply because many gamers see it as a sequel to a subpar previous game. Im not saying K2 will be any less of a game but just like LBP it may not be in the hearts and minds of the mass gaming public as it evidently is with the sony loyalists or maybe this guy simply overlooked it, as for 2 games with Halo in the title, uhm no shiii "Halo" is in the title!.....personally I don't see a RTS doing huge numbers but it will be a good game for RTS for thought.

no killzone to on and top 3 list is a fail let alone top 10!!!

These guys have no idea what the hell they're talking about, look at their description for GOW: "God of War 1 and 2 set the standards for role playing, adventure games." Role playing?

Look at what they said about the GT series: "Although the series didn't do that well, GT 5 is hyped to bring back the magic introducing Ferrari into its over 900 cars and also providing online gaming facility for up to 16 players." Are these guys on crack? The GT series has sold over 50 million units, more than Halo and Gears combined

already my candidate for stupidest quote of the year

krazy14kraz3516d ago

i would love to see a mass effect 2

callahan093516d ago

It's a good list. If you're listing things that will be very successful, he's got it right. I do think people are underestimating the success that Killzone 2 will have. It's going to sell hugely, so it could've been on this list and nobody would deny that it deserved to be there.

For my money, though, the game I most want to play in 2009 is Uncharted 2.

The times like all the other tabloids have no idea when it comes to gaming. Most of them use the same writer who does film reviews or makes the tea to write there gaming news. I used to work for a local paper and the game reviews were created by looking at the quotes on the boxes, the games were never even opened.
Newspapers make me sick. They can't even get the normal fu<kiing news right.

I'm another journo and , yeah, things like gaming,and other lifestyle stuff, is often cobbled together off the net. Sometimes it's five mins down the pub and the fact there's no Killzone when it's easily the game nearest most gamers minds right now is criminal. The Halo games aren't even gonna be Halo-typical gameplay so to hype those blindly is odd if you ignore Killzone2. He possibly only asked a mate who happened to own a 360 and a Wii so there's nothing to get upset about -he's just clueless.

doctorstrange3516d ago

they make it sound like its the best looking fps for any console which is just plain wrong

Information Minister3516d ago

I don't think anyone can read that and keep a straight face.

And not only that but the list is missing Resident Evil 5, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2...

orangeson583516d ago

Where the hell is Resident Evil 5 on this list? I can think of several games that should have been on here.

PimpHandHappy3516d ago

Fat Princess
Twisted Metal
Uncharted 2
Tekken 6
Street Fighter
God of war

if i wanted i could take out those two multi plats i could add
Heavy Rain
MLB The Show 09
