4 Games You'll Miss But Should Play In 2009

With heavy hitters like Modern Warfare 2 and Assassin's Creed II out, gamers will undoubtedly miss out on some titles in 2009, not because they were bad titles, on the contrary they were great, but there's so much cash one has to spend on video games, and gamers already know beforehand the titles they'll purchase, and that's even before they see any reviews.

These 4 games were given good reviews, but you haven't played them, maybe you should do yourself a further and at least rent one:

I've played Killzone 2 and inFAMOUS and I plan to buy Borderlands. I still don't know about Dragon Age. Is it kinda like a medieval version of Mass Effect or totally different?

i'd hardly say people are "missing" these games are all 4 have sold very well, some even in the 7 figures already.

better title might be: "for the love of god, people, stop the insanity and buy these great games instead of crap like Wii Fit Plus"

i bought all 4, Borderlands on XBox and rest on PS3. all very much worth the money.

Dragon Age was the most surprising game of the year imo... graphically, its a bit sh1t sadly, but gameplay and especially story/characters make up for that in spades. i don't recall the last game that made me laugh, made me mad, made me care about atypical characters, and most of all really made me think about the choices i was making and the long term consequences they'd have. i was sad to see it all end.

you'll not be disappointed,this game has TONS of gaming

and it's delicious like hot cakes

Killzone 2 has done great. 2 Million players is not that short of a number. You don't need to sell like Halo or MW. Remember that Killzone 2 did NOT get proper ad support by Sony. They should have marketed the hell out of KILLZONE 2. That and add the fact that Killzone 1 was not received well, KZ2 didn't have a strong backing. Ever after that it managed to sell 2 million units! That's just great :)

Killzone 2 is an awesome game. One that if you like FPS, you should absolutely buy it.

STICKzophrenic3225d ago

I bought a PS3 JUST for Killzone 2.

Then a little demo for inFamous came along, and I ended up getting that game at release.

I'm getting Dragon Age: Origins for Christmas, so that will be three of the four.

I really have no plans to get Borderlands. Maybe I'll GameFly it sometime next year after I've finished my Christmas games, and the heavy hitters in the early part of the year.

So you name your article "4 games YOU'LL MISS in 2009" and all 4 games on the list have sold over 1 million copies? @[email protected]

Nac3225d ago

totally different, closer to KotOR.

Automat3225d ago

There were Killzone 2 ads everywhere. Even on TV and Cinemas in Norway... and the game has gone Platinum.

duplissi3225d ago

its similar to mass effect, and to kotor so if you enjoyed either youll enjoy dragon age.

SilentNegotiator3225d ago

sold over 2 million.

I'm not so sure it belongs on this list.

zeeshan3225d ago

@automat: Well to be honest, I didn't even see a single KZ2 ad in the U.S

I'm sorry, but I didn't like Borderlands at all. I mean, it was okay, but it's something I'll quickly forget about. Then again, I don't really like RPGs, so that definitely had something to do with it.

And for anyone wondering, I beat the entire game playing online co-op every step of the way. I even got a little started on my second playthrough.

Now I'm not saying it was a bad game, just not my type of game.

Platinum'd inFAMOUS, own Killzone 2 (and still play it). Probably won't ever play Dragon Age (it's that RPG thing again).

Tru_Blu3224d ago

May not be a popular thought but Dragon Age has DLC out of the box. I hate that. Release the game you made and add to it down the road, don't gimp the retail version just to have DLC available day one. Again just my opinion but I am ashamed of buying that game and making it seem ok to the publishers/developers.

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a great game too, that turned up about the same time as Killzone 2, in particular the remake of Escape from Butcher Bay, makes me wonder how the hell I missed that out last time!

N4BmpS3225d ago

I loved Killzone 2 and inFamous both of them are clear examples of why I own a PS3. No one should pass up on these two games. with 27 or 8 million PS3 owner's at least 21 million of them should have bought both of these titles. Sony should have pulled a "Spider-Man" advertising stunt for inFamous.

movements3225d ago

nor inFamous was done advertising justice by Sony. Could have done better by miles...

Tru_Blu3224d ago

lol, guess they were counting on us geeks to spread the word.

Madis0073225d ago

Deamon Soul for sure
Its best PRG game out there right now... Its sad becuase it sold so few copies but best RPG game ever

The Return of Matt Hazard

Two games that most of people didn't even look at, but if you like good shooting and have sense of humour, you'll love them :D

RockmanII73225d ago

Never played Matt Hazard, but WET was horrid.

Tru_Blu3224d ago

I agree about WET. Got that from gamefly and couldn't even finish it. That game was horrid.
