I disagree with the #1 pick. Other than that, that's a pretty good list. Mines different but close.

ReservoirDog3162578d ago

10. No
9. Don't think so though I'm sure it'll be good
8. I suck at racing games
7. I SUCK at racing games
6. Yes, definitely
5. Don't have XBL so it's kinda worthless, sadly
4. Um, no
3. Yes, 100%
2. Boycott!
1. Um, no

Oh and bubbles for liking Valkyria Chronicles.

umair_s512578d ago

Happy to see Boderlands is getting some attention. Mark my words, this game has a lot of potential.

FamilyGuy2578d ago

The lst failed at the start
"10. The Beatles: Rock Band"

Most gamers aren't 50, there's plenty of other titles that could take that spot.
"Hamsterfist’s Top Ten Must Buy", i disagree with your opinion.

I also disagree with this sites ability to add. Tax excluded they say "$600" but list a psp game that will be $40 and a Wii game that will be $50

Tax excluded, that's $570

Other than that i guess it's an okay list.

Montrealien2578d ago (Edited 2578d ago )

So only people that are 50 like or appreciate the Beatles? I don't think so.

tell that to these guys

As for the list, I dont agree with it to much, mine would be in a different order, but he has a right to his opinion.

deadreckoning6662578d ago (Edited 2578d ago )

1. Modern Warfare 2
2. Uncharted 2
3. L4D2

In that order. As far as Beatles: Rock Band, screw it. Lots a people like em but I could care less. I don't see it finding a huge audience. The same people who spend countless hours on XBL or PSN aren't the same people who care about The Beatles.

Montrealien2578d ago

you are right deadreckoning666, however there are many more of them.

SuperM2578d ago

New Super Mario Wii? Since when did this become a sales list. I thought you said must buy list? that is totally ridiculous. And Modern Warfare 2 will outsell new super mario anyway.

Tony P2578d ago

The only game on the list I'm kind of interested in is Borderlands. I could care less about the rest.

Muddyalcapones2578d ago

It's "COULDN'T care less" not "could". If you could care less then you do care to some extent.

edgeofblade2578d ago

I really don't care what the PS3 fanboys want to say. I'd replace Beatles or any of the driving games with ODST.

You masochistic driving sim fans can kiss my buttes.

And where is Heavy Rain? Too non-traditional for you?

aldesko2578d ago

"And where is Heavy Rain? Too non-traditional for you?"

Heavy Rain isn't coming out this Fall as far as I know.

Tony P2578d ago

@muddy:

Said exactly what I meant about the list. So thanks, but no thanks. :)

GameGambits2578d ago

The person who did this article is retarded. He thinks that Super Mario game will outsell all the games on that list. Hate to break it to you but Mario is only on Wii, but MW2 is on 360,ps3,andPC so you are outta luck there. Didn't Modern Warfare 1 sell like 14 million copies up to now or was it even more?

Also, you must not realize that games do NOT sell on the Wii. Furthermore you are saying that game is THE must buy simply because of sales... do you even play games to completion anymore? I doubt it. You look at the sales #'s and deem it good or bad. Get a different hobby or a career, because games aren't a top priority for you.

Oh and to go further you think the majority of users on here have the cash to drop on 10 different games ? You are out of your mind. Even if we did your list is still a joke. It's not even a matter of opinion, but a matter of facts. You'd have to own each console like myself and that's a VERY rare commodity to have. Even people who can afford other consoles sometimes don't simply due to lack of interest or information.

Here's a new list.

Top Ten Games You SHOULD Consider to Buy in 2009:
1) Uncharted 2(Got a ps3? Get it. Want a PS3? Buy it with it.)

2) Borderlands(Tons of praise for this one. Keep an eye on it.)

3) ModernWarfare 2(I won't be buying it day 1. Renting to see if no beta was a good choice by Activision and Infinity Ward)

4) KingdomHearts 358/2 Days(Give your DS some love. The KH series has a big fan following, and if you are part of that following it's a no brainer)

5) Scribblenauts(More love towards you DS if you aren't a KH fan. This game gets tons of praise. Buy it as a gift for a sibling, but secretly play the crap out of it)

6) Gran Turismo PSP(If you like racing then I'd suggest this over Forza 3 to be honest. The developer delivers in spades with this series and doesn't shoot its mouth off to be the best. It just is the best.)

7) Whatever you missed out on(This is an odd year for gaming. Everything we were excited for jumped ship to 2010. Things like Bioshock 2, Bayonetta, and even Splinter Cell ran off. After listing all the new titles above that really show promise from now to the end of December it's here wheen you are this point you want to step back. From late 2008 to now there have been some great games lots of people missed out, and it seems 2009 can be used as a solid catch up year, since 2010 will be flooded from the looks of it. Games I suggest trying out: Dead Space, Fallout 3, Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, and even further back for Metal Gear Solid 4. I know my list is pretty PS3 heavy, but my 360 did play Dead Space and Fallout 3 last year, as well as Fable 2 and Gears of War 2. I don't recommend Fable or Gears to anyone...ever. It's also a good point to try some downloadable games like Fat Princess or Shadow Complex.)

8)Mass Effect 2(I know it comes out in January of 2010, but heck why not just pay it off with some Christmas money. It's worth waiting an extra week or two after Christmas to enjoy this game. Bioware delivers, but do you order?

9)MAG(Just like Mass Effect 2 above it comes out in early January. With a beta later this month a lot of people will get into you'll be able to know if this is as big as most FPS fans want it to be. Youtube videos from the beta now already show a great game coming soon)

10)Assassin's Creed 2(I put this as #10, because we all know the replay value will be small. If you don't want to shell out 60 for it then make sure to at least rent it or get it from a friend ASAP. It's worthy of your time)

Honorable Mentions: Ratchet and Clank Future, Left4Dead2, Brutal Legend, and Halo 3 ODST. These are games I feel a lot of players aren't gaga over, but the fans will be chomping at the bit to get at.

I don't know about you guys, but my list makes a lot more sense than his...

Umm no, he listed what he thinks are the 10 must buys this fall. That is why I stopped reading your longer then needed comment. This internet generation that always needs to be right while stepping on other peoples opinions is really getting bad.

Beatles Rock Band? Wtf...I love the Beatles, but that game is hardly a must have. There are only 40 something tracks in it and it's just a Rock Band expansion. Also, Demon's Souls Halo ODST, WET, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 should be somewhere on that list.

Edit:
Oh please, it's not a port. The game was remade using a different engine (the engine used for Sigma), new enemies, new weapons, new bosses, it has online co-op, 3 new characters, expanded story, update graphics, fixed camera issues (supposedly), along with many other tiny improvements. So yeah, it doesn't classify as a port. It's a remake. And yes, I've played the WET demo and it was amazing.

hamsterfist2578d ago

Ninja Gaiden 2 already came out, last year. Sigma is basically just a PS3 port. Why would that make the list? Have you played the WET demo? That is a must rental, no purchase. I will give you Halo ODST though. I forgot that one, but it would of just made the honorable mentions.

callahan092578d ago (Edited 2578d ago )

Sigma 2 is a pretty significant port, though. It runs at a higher resolution at a better and smoother framerate, with an improved camera, and tons of additional content. Not saying it should have replaced any titles on this list, but I do think that saying "it came out last year" is wrong, it's definitely improved enough that if a critic wasn't willing to recommend Ninja Gaiden 2 to people last year, they might just find Sigma 2 improved enough that it's worth recommending this year.

umair_s512578d ago

Its 3 more playable characters, playable. For the love of god, shheesh.

FamilyGuy2578d ago

Yeah, it's far beyond a "port"

SuperM2578d ago

Well id say Left 4 Dead 2 shouldnt be on the list since it looks pretty much the same as the original.

edgeofblade2578d ago

Sigma 2. Really? A half-assed port of a 360 game? A Team Ninja game with the blood nerfed out? Can you really consider that a contender?

Redempteur2578d ago

If you managed to get some info you'll see that there is blood in sigma 2 ...

JUST NOT A HUGE AMOUNT OVER THE TOP OMG TOO MUCH blood .

There is plenty of blood on the floor when you kill ennemies except when killed by ninpos . They actually put the game on par with all the other ninja gaiden since the first one ..So no it's not a nerf but a restoration

callahan092578d ago (Edited 2578d ago )

Really, edgeofblade, half-assed port? Is that what you're going with?

How does increasing and steadying the frame-rate, fixing the wonky camera issues, bumping up the native resolution, adding new playable characters/missions/bosses, and creating a brand-new online co-op mode = half-assed port?
