The Save Points! Game of the Year awards 2009: Games of the Year
And here it is, our final post in the Game of the Year awards of 2009. Instead of 5 choices like all our other categories, we’ll have 3 winners this time. 3 winners that fought a tough competition against other great games and prevailed as some of the best experiences of the year. This was a bit of a hard choice since there were a lot of great games this year. Be sure to check our other categories for a list of more great 2009 games!
So what won the best games of the year? Read on and see our 3 winners!
Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves
Uncharted 2 is a game that most never want to see end. With a cast more alive than anything else seen this generation and more set pieces than most blockbuster movies, Uncharted 2 feels more like something you’d see from Hollywood than in a video game. Beautifully rendered graphics, impressively-designed shootouts and some of the best platforming seen Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Uncharted 2 is undoubtedly one of the best games this year.

Borderlands took on Diablo’s gameplay style, and made it work perfectly in the first-person viewpoint. With fun multiplayer, tons of loot to find (using an item-generation system similar to Diablo 2′s), making the gameplay take precedence over everything else instead of shoving a crappy story in your face, a bunch of great quests, and overall really fun gameplay, this was one of the more unique and fun experiences this year, and this is why it’s amongst the best games of the year.
This has fun gameplay, some cool leveling systems, and most importantly it’s REALLY HARD without being totally cheap about it like most “hard” games in recent years. Add in the greatly implemented online features that are directly into the multiplayer, and the ability to help/get help from your friends, and being able to invade other peoples’ games and you’ve got a pretty fun game.
