The first-quarter of the year used to be a slow period for big blockbuster releases. This year is the exception. Here are the top five video games released in 2009 so far.
and I noticed it said SF CONSOLE Examiner... Hm. Still, Empire is AWESOME. Good list though, I agree with these rankings 100%.
What is sad is that all those games are either sequel or spin offs.
Nothing else comes close...so far. By years end it'll be InFamous, GT5, Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, and COD Modern Warfare 2.
It was a good game and all, but very easy, very short. I guess they did well for their hardware and such.
After seeing the pic of the geek that wrote this I'm never going to this site again.
yup same here, btw how can anyone say a crap ds game is better than killzone 2? fair enough SF4 and KZ2 are equal on epicness but really a crap spinoff gta?
LMAO - thats mean
LOL. He looks like one of the goofy-a$$ characters I made in Oblivion. +bubbles to Firstkn1ghT (whoulda thought?) for making me actually click the link (I don't want to contribute hits to crappy sites, unless necessary). :P
Had to go back to look, lmao
lol.. i had to check too.. that guy is a goober.
lol I said the same thing awhile ago http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
Well according to gamerankings/Meta a lot of people can say GTA: Chinatown Wars is better than Killzone 2... GTA http://www.gamerankings.com... http://www.metacritic.com/g... KZ2 http://www.gamerankings.com... http://www.metacritic.com/g... So yeah, there you have it.
haha handheld GTA spinoff > Killzone 2, that made my day. I agree that Street Fighter 4 should be in the first place.
thats not quite how the ratings work. handheld games are not graded on the same level as the console games, it wouldn't be fair if they were. @4.1 unless i missed any sarcasm... It made your day that some guy enjoyed SF4 more than Killzone2? Whatever helps you sleep at night...
also didnt both those games sf4 and re5 sell more on the ps3 worldwide? ouch looks like M$ needs to get some games. also games score and rateing are different for handhelds compared to consoles guys. my grandma even knows that. handheld vs handheld and console vs console is how its always been. also console games are just superior in the first place thats why only console games can get goty.
That said I'd rather play through CTW again than GTA4 or any of it's DLC(and I was the one nloke here who liked GTA4). Truly a marvel for a DS game and really brought the invention back to the series, imo. On the KZ2 front I'd have put it top primarily as SF4 wasn't, again IMO, as good as HDTR was. Focus? My arse.
Highly overated, I forgot about the game shortly after buying it. It has become for a niche audience.
I guess the list is ok for now..we still have a lot of games coming in 09.. @MGOelite..Killzone 2 is not even on the same level as SF4..the Killzone franchise has a long way to go before it can even come close to the success and acclaim the Street Fighter franchise has already attained..
yet another pointless opinionated crap from the internet.
Yeah, SF IV is so far the best game of the year.
each people have theyr tastes ;)
ninny blade and star ocean the lost hope???.. LOL
For me, it goes like.... 1. Flower 2. Killzone 2 3. Street Fighter 4 4. Resident Evil 5 5. Madworld
lol no way is that overrated SF4 the best game of the year. #1 goes to RE5 easily.
can't wait for the pc version of SF4[mods :)], however there seem to be mixed reviews about the game... SF fans seem to not like it as much as past SF games. i for one, would like to see the game move beyond SF2, this just seems like a remake of SF2. i'll still get it, but still.
