Capcom took us to Africa with Resident Evil 5, Nintendo topped Wii Sports with a feature packed sequel and Activision delivered the ultimate first person shooter, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Batman thwarted the Joker's plans in Arkham Asylum, while gamers scratched turntables with DJ Hero.
It wasn't all good news, of course. Electronic Arts closed Pandemic, Duke Nukem Forever was officially shelved and Midway ended a historic run, but overall, it was a memorable year full of enjoyable games and big surprises."
