The Top Ten Must Have Games of 2009

10. Resident Evil 5 - Capcom
Outstanding graphics and the addition of Co-op play to Capcom's long running Survival Horror series place Resident Evil 5 in our number 10 spot. Plagued with controversy over charging extra for multiplayer, an antiquated control system, and what some might call a racial slant to the game,

Horrible list. Where is infamous? I'd take ODST over UFC or freakin RE5... Brutal legend and scribblenauts over Demon souls, dragon age, GOW collection, GTPSP, Borderlands or mario wii... Seriously?

InfectedDK3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

I agree.. "Horrible list"

I agree on these:
- Killzone 2
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Modern Warfare 2
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Only MAYBE AC2 and SF4..

But I find fx Motorstorm PR or even some random PSN game even more fun than those two..

And yes the new Mario game for Wii also kicks those two games and the rest I didn't mention on that list in their very own balls..

If you don't have a PS3 your missing out on quite a lot; you should know this by now.

I've been a hardcore MMA/UFC fan for over 5 years now but that game sucked! The only thing saving it is it's genuine UFC theme. The voices, character models etc, are all genuine UFC style but the gameplay was weak.

Brutal Legend, RE5 and Scribblenauts should be replaced with inFamous, Demon's Souls and New Super Mario Bros Wii.

oh yes a 360 fanboy bashing a PS3 title

on topic
this is the writer opinion
so i really don't care

mal_tez923189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

Scribblenauts = A whole hour of fun
Street Fighter = Another 2D buttonmasher
UFC = Again, more buttonmashing
Brutal Legend = No, just no

My list:
#1. Uncharted 2
#2. Killzone 2
#3. Modern Warfare 2

The rest would be Batman, Assassin's Creed 2, Ratchet and Clank, Borderlands and inFamous.

lightningsax3189d ago

This seems like it has a review-friendly slant. These were some of the big hits of the year, although looking back some aren't as good, i.e. Resident Evil 5 (a pretty good sequel with an awful ending) and Scribblenauts (an awesome idea that controls like a flaming pile of junk).

My list would look something like this:

#10 Demon's Souls
#9 Dragon Age
#8 Demon's Souls
#7 Dragon Age

...and that's why I'm not making lists!

Lich1203189d ago

I agree with this list much more than the original.

Saaking3189d ago

Great list and half of those are PS3 games. I feel kinda bad for x360 only owners.

nycredude3189d ago

I agreed with this list and I have all those games, except ODST. Sorry not a big Halo fan and I have 3.

ABizzel13189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

The list isn't a bad list at all. Not every game is for every gamer meaning there is no such thing as a perfect list. I agree that InFamous should be on the list, but everything else to me is debatable. I think Brutal Legend, UFC, and Scribblenauts should be replaced with InFamous and 2 other games.

I defend Resident Evil 5 being number 10. Resident Evil 5 was short, it wasn't modernized, it wasn't scary, and it didn't have that Resident Evil survival horror vibe. But it was a great co-op game, that played good, looked great, and had a good story and acting.

Metroid Prime Trilogy (best game all year)
Halo3 ODST
MW2 (360 version)
Shadow Complex
Mario Bros Wii
Assassins Creed (360 version)
Skate2 (360 version)
Resident Evil 5 (360 version)

Thats my total unbias opinion... 360 version of games were chosen due to online being better on live and the games themselves run a lot better than the PS3 versions... Uncharted2 nearly made the list but it just doesnt compare to any of the amazing games I listed...

Honest fair opinion... no room for fanboyism here

d_dogg20073189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

You have the worst taste in gaming and are a complete f*g!! uncharted 2 smokes all these games in every aspect but your allegiances to a faulty consoles blinds you. Please do us all a favor and just leave you 12 year old pansy. People like you are the reason why MS gets away with gimped versions of games and the last gen technology.

callahan093189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

ODST and not Uncharted 2? Really? I can't believe anyone would honestly pick that over Uncharted 2. You really think Uncharted 2 can't compare to that? Taking it all one-by-one, well, let's see:

Graphics: Uncharted 2
Sound: Uncharted 2
Music: Uncharted 2 (but the only category ODST can compete in)
Voice Acting: Uncharted 2
Story: Uncharted 2
Campaign: Uncharted 2
Multiplayer: Uncharted 2 (because the co-op has matchmaking, and the competitive is new and not the same stuff I've been playing for 2 years)

NecrumSlavery3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

Why did you put a (360) next to AC2 and not one next to left4dead 2? Both PS3 version and PC version is superior on those. You're such a troll. ODST sucks and every game on 360 was erased by MW2, where as people are still playing Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2, Ratchet CIT, and more on PS3.

Metroid Collection? Is crushed by GOW. MP2&3 were such a letdown.

Go click the Open Zone tab and beat off with all your red ring lovin' cronies about how you will rock your 360s when they get back from the shop.

And no D's Souls or inFAMOUS = Fail

hulk_bash19873189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

(Excluding me of course).... Why do you give this guy the satisfaction of knowing he can push your buttons? His list is clearly a way to get a rise out of the PS3 supporters (and fanboys).

d_dogg20073189d ago

@ 4.4

Why would I be quiet because i'm right? Xbox consumers don't care about quality and innovation like ps3 owners do. His type of consumer is the reason we are getting the cr*p we have been receiving this generation (rehashes, crap graphics)I was bored to tears playing the single player of MW2, and the whole time I was like wow did i just play this like 2 years ago? Zero improvements and the multiplayer has been dumbded down. Trust me,I know what i'm talking about I was 10th prestige in COD 4 this multiplayer sucks. I mean look at the difference in quality between console exclusives, it's no contest. And I wasn't complaining about the list in the text, it was his list that is weak. So honestly your on here more than me why don't you go play your games on your xbox.... Oh wait it's on its way from the repair shop. NOob

creatchee3188d ago

Demon's Souls is a great game, but it is probably a little too niche for the wide audience to appreciate (which I think is probably the point of this article)?

Totally agree on Uncharted 2 though - best single player experience this year and one of the best of all time...

I love how there isn't a SINGLE 360 exclusive in that list.

Anorexorcist3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

Well what Xbox 360 exclusive is worth mentioning and which one could stand on its own two feet in a best games of the year compilation like this?

I'm somewhat amazed how fast ODST fell off the radar. I guess a glorified expansion pack cannot be too glossed over enough to fool everyone for an extended period of time.

callahan093189d ago

The 360 games that came out this year that I'd have considered are Left 4 Dead 2, Star Ocean, and Forza 3. Ninja Blade was pretty good but I wouldn't call it a must-have game of 2009. I hated ODST. That's the most over-rated game of the year, and it wasn't even very highly rated. It deserved Haze-like scores as far as I'm concerned.
