GamesRadar: The Platinum Chalice Awards 2009

"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."

Best "Best of 2009" article ever. GamesRadar is the s**t.

Arkham Asylum Game of the me it was a toss-up between that and Uncharted 2, but both games honestly deserved it Uncharted 2 was a masterpiece and Arkham Asylum made the greatest super hero game ever hands down. As long as the broken Modern Warfare 2 doesn't get Game of the Year I'll be happy...that game is way too broken and basically a rehash of COD4...nothing new except for the theoretically much improved but factually broken online multiplayer.

Btw someone tell activision to give the spiderman license to rocksteady...seriously.

Agreed on all counts. I think they made the choice based on the "surprise factor". We all knew Uncharted would smash expectations so they made the right choice to give it runner-up.
