Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "It really feels like the video game industry as a whole has no place to go but up. 2008 was an excellent year for gamers regardless of the console that you own as it saw the release of games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Gears of War 2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Grand Theft Auto IV. Nearing the halfway point of the year, 2009 has already seen the release of some excellent games such as Street Fighter IV, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Killzone 2, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena and a few more. This momentum looks as though it's about to continue as May is shaping up to be a fine month with the release of Infamous, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, Bionic Commando and Cross Edge among a few others. Overall, 2009 looks like it's going to leave a lot of gamers broke, especially multi-console owners. TNG has comprised a list of the most anticipated video game releases of 2009. May's releases have been excluded as the most notable have been mentioned. This list is in no particular order besides the one which is named "Most Anticipated.""
