AskMen: Top 10: Hype-Worthy 2009 Games

2008 was a landmark year for the video game industry, and you can expect yet another leap forward in 2009. The variety and quality may be unparalleled in 2009, as everything from action extravaganzas like Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Resident Evil 5 to awesome shooters like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams are on the way. We'll even see the triumphant return of an absolute classic in Punch-Out!! for the Wii. This year really does have it all, but these are the top 10 hype-worthy 2009 games that we think will dominate. (Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

it does not matter it might be his opinion.....but Sony has games this year again....wake up Sony marketing department wake up.
Miraak82  +   2451d ago
ya because there isn't really anything to be excited for, halo wars, ninja blade , alan wake pffff, even wii had 1 game on the list. ha ps3 owners still have infamous to enjoy in a few months. Good times

Can't forget Heavy Rain. I used to be a CSI freak so Heavy Rain is what I'm most excited to play this year. :D

You gave them your hit 'cause you were hoping to see some 360 exclusives but you didn't and now you're calling them PS3 fanboys. Just go back to watching your Disney channel Mickey Mouse.

out of curiosity did anyone watch the new south park from last week that dealt with mickey and jonas brothers....PRICELESS

360? :P
- Ghost of Sparta -  +   2451d ago
What's a 360? I mean I've heard of the Xbox Nogamesleft which launched in 2005 but hmm. *shrug*
cryymoar  +   2451d ago
i know
i like how 9/10 of those games were on the PS3. Some of those 9 are PS3 exclusives. and that 1/10 is a wii game...

So, WHAT? THE PS3 HAS NO GAMES?? oh, it has games AND MORE.

Honestly if Sony's marketing department doesn't wake up it might not matter how many more exclusives the PS3 has.
Not trying to bash the console( I have one) but its starting to become a serious problem.
ps92117  +   2451d ago
I hope their recent restructuring affects there advertisements capability. My hopes are high, seen the obvious amount of advertisements behind MLB 09 the Show, and KillZone 2. This may or may not, signify the beginning of a new Sony.
pippoppow  +   2451d ago
Agree Spike. Sony should really start advertising more. They've done well with very little advertising so far but with their superior exclusive 09 lineup, now is the perfect time to pounce on the competition. Maybe once a price cut comes they will start to properly advertise. By the way Bestbuy has a good deal going on. A $400 80GB PS3 with a choice of one game, LBP, MLB09 or KZ2.
ps92117  +   2451d ago
If only we had ICO's this year I would forget of the others. Oh and reviews for The Show have been surprizingly high. I hope Sony delivers the same level of quality with their other sports games.
jBat17  +   2451d ago
MLB the show
too bad, xbox owners can't play this masterpiece.. well, soon xbots can grab a baseball bat and smash their 3fixme to pieces because that 3 year warranty is almost over..

GOW3, not coming out this year, but will destroy those xbots in march 2010..yeah, in 2010, xbots start saving your money 'cause your 3fixme will be discontinued and you'll need to buy a $600 console.. you'll get screwed again like what M$ did with the original crapbox

uncharted 2 will be the best looking console game this year. gears of lag will look last gen next to this game.

KZ2 best FPS to date. will rape that failo DLC.

for a list of hype-worthy 360 games please check out the other website,

Stop, please. This infuriates xbox owners, and then we get a bunch of them claming "oh Foroza is better than GT" and "The 360 is more powerful than the ps3". Something I really can't tolerate.
cryymoar  +   2451d ago
does the dev even test out every single car like Polyphony Digital does?
Probably not.

GT pwns forza Motorfail.
ps92117  +   2451d ago
In the absolute, any being who has question GT superiority is guilty of ignorance towards the automobile world and GT itself. Simple as that.
gta2800  +   2451d ago
4 PS3 exclusives. 1 Wii exclusive and 5 multi plats. Not being a fan boy or anything. Just truth is, there's nothing on the 360 coming out that is even hype worthy. As this list states.
ps92117  +   2451d ago
Somehow Alan Wake is suppose to be the pinnacle of Micrasoft's marionett guild.

No Heavy Rain?
Pheonix03  +   2451d ago
No Bayonetta!?!
04soldier  +   2451d ago
Uncharted 2 & Bioshock 2 FTW!!!
Uncharted 2 & Bioshock2 FTW!!! Both of these games have top-notch storytelling graphics & sound.
But if I had to choose one, Uncharted 2 gets the edge because of its sound. When I was playing Uncharted I kept freaking out because I thought I was really in the JUNGLE..!! :0
xxBATTLECATxx  +   2451d ago
good list. if i just got a ps3, that list would be a good start as to which games to get. hell i dont even own a wii but im excited a new punch out is coming out.
