Top 5 Original Games of 2009

GamerNode's Eddie Inzauto has decided to split the typical top ten list into two parts this year: sequels and original titles. Moving on from the predictable list of sequels, here is the list of the most anticipated original IPs of the coming year: ( Flock , Alan Wake, Alpha Protocol, Brutal Legend, Culture, Darksiders: Wrath of War, Dragon Age: Origins, Heavy Rain , Infamous, PC, Prototype, PS3, Trine, Xbox 360)

WTB [Prototype of Prototype] 10g, PST.
Some thoughts:

Prototype: Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. How fantastic this game looks is just not quite in my range of conscious ability to word. The freerunning system is amazing; I've watched him run in a straight line, and actually avoid things moving into his path on a random course, from running down and then wallkicking off lorries, to entire skyscrapers. Admiteddly, it'll make gamers more wary of hoodie hooligans, but then again, if they were all like this we'd be wearing Burberry monk robes and worshipping Reebok.

Alan Wake: Finally. The amount of times this game has been delayed goes beyond farcial, and it's nice to see it finally reach a stage where they can date it. It'll be interesting to see the narrative directions taken by the team on a character with a bad case of insomnia, though I can't help feeling his surname is the best example of cruel irony I can recall in this industry. Hopefully a title that will fix all the failings of the recent Silent Hill and Alone in the Dark releases.

Brutal Legend: This game is going to be brilliant. A game where you play as a roadie, voiced by and modelled on Jack Black, in a land of cars and dragons? What's not to like? Some slick visuals and a nice cartoony style set this off well, and it'll be exciting to see Lemmy and other metal icons make their first in-game cameos. Not to mention it's helmed by Tim "r0xx0r my s0xx0rz" Shafer, creator of both my avatar, and Eddie's. Epic win.

Heavy Rain: As someone who doesn't see a PS3 in their near future, three things are killing me; LittleBigPlanet, MSG4, and this. The game is incredibly detailed, not only graphically but in the sheer amount of narrative-based outcomes to each and every scenario the female protagonist of the title will encounter. Hiding in a house from a violent man? Do you run, do you hide till he leaves, do you kill him? Any and every outcome is available to you, and I can't wait to see if they all tie into a player-controlled storyline.

The first I've heard of Trine. Looks pretty cool.

Indeed. All great games. I find it so hard to know which titles to look forward to nowadays, though.
