"Right about now the rest of the internet is tripping over itself to crank out the "definitive" end-of-year list. Well, they can stop. We already did it. Over the next few pages our unquestioned expertise will identify the coolest, most important games of 2009 with zero room for error. Yeah, it's that big of a deal. That's why they're basking in the dazzling radiance of a Platinum Chalice.
Oh, we have a game of the year. But the rest of the awards are GR-style accolades so you don't have to sift through "best puzzle game" or the always important "best PSP graphics technology."
Videogames… prepare to be acknowledged."
