The winner of Destructoid Game of the Year 2009

"Some people seem to complain that this was a rough year for videogames when compared to the glory of 2007 and the not-as-glorious, but still pretty impressive, 2008. To that, I say, "Fiddlesticks!" Sure, some of the huge releases of the year were pushed back to 2010, but that doesn't mean there weren't a ton of great games to play in 2009! Fiddlesticks to all of you naysayers out there! FIDDLESTICKS!

Just look at our list of nominees for Destructoid Game of the Year 2009 (and the runner-ups!). They are all pretty gosh-darned great videogames! All last week we revealed the five nominees, and now it's time to reveal the winner. I know most of you lost sleep all weekend waiting for this historic moment, but it's finally here."

I don't who complains about a rough year, but 2009 is miles and miles better than 2007, that guy is an idiot.

Congrats to Uncharted 2 GOTY 2009.

Edit: @TheBlackSmoke

That is so true.

Its such a coincidence that it was a rough year when Microsoft brought absolutely nothing and Sony CLEANED house.


Yeah its like certain media outlets have decided to just rubbish the whole year to cover up MS failure to deliver anything.

Carl14123226d ago

Well deserved. It's been too long since i have played this game. A whole month


It was a rough least for 360 only owners. Only good exclusive was F3 as L4D2 is crap!. For the PS3 it was a good, maybe the best year. It seems the writter is a 360 player I guess.


lowcarb3226d ago

It's good to see PS3 put 2009 on lock and to be honest about time.

Digitaldude3226d ago

Yeah baby!
So well deserved. I still cant stop playing multiplayer.

So happy for yet another GotY award to Uncharted 2. Is GameSpy's GotY to Modern Warfare 2 (which judging by the complete gushing of editors over the game was already decided at the start) the only GotY award Uncharted has lost to thus far? (Btw, anyone notice that GameSpy uses the 360 box art for every multiplatform game that wins one of their awards? Wtf is up with that? Trying to associate/advertise the game toward one console?)

SilentNegotiator3226d ago

Uncharted 2 has joined the ranks as one of the "Must play" games for gamers.

Fine bring sales into this but do realise, you are commenting on a article that gave Uncharted 2 GOTY along with many other places.
some nerve you got. Open zone please.

Tinted Eyes3226d ago

Sold 2 million in 24 hours?

No it didn't.....

TheTeam063226d ago (Edited 3226d ago )

"except halo.


And how'd that work out for them this year? It didn't win GOTY back when in 2007 with Halo 3, and it didn't win this year even with 2 Halo games out. Not to forget it took over 2 months to reach close to 2 million.


Oh, and PS: The game that had a chance to be Game of the Year 2009, Modern Warfare 2, lost out to the game that "halo could stop"... LOL

DaTruth3226d ago

So they sold 2 million in the same time frame?

unrealgamer583226d ago

Somnipotent3226d ago

it's only funny when kevin butler vp of would-be overused catch phrases says it.

Sibs3226d ago

You said boom twice.

mfwahwah3225d ago

The Boom commercial wasn't even that great, compared to the rest.
