It saw the release of several highly anticipated blockbuster titles, including Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2, as well as the emergence of a number of original IPs, such as Borderlands and Brutal Legend.
The El33tonline team sat down and drew up this list of what we believe to be the very best games of 2009. We salute the developers and publishers from around the globe who helped to create these masterpieces, and hope that they will continue to create great games, so that we may in turn continue to enjoy playing them."
