Another year goes by filled with an overwhelming number of titles that many have sought to play since 2007. It is one game, however, that rises above the rest but every title remains glorious in individual categories and unique ways. The WhatIfGaming Game of The Year award is back for 2009. Publishers and developers do not have it easy, and many put years of hard work into one game in hopes to announce it and let alone release it. Their contributions will not go unnoticed by WhatIfGaming as always. Part of the "WhatIfGaming Prizes," considered the Nobel prizes of gaming, the WhatIfGaming Game of The Year Award is a prize emblem trophy chosen with extreme care and precision .
