Well, we’re done with our Game of the Year posts. Before we do anything else, let’s just do a quick summary of this year’s posts.
Last year we had a really crappy system for our GotY posts, but this year we almost seem *gasp* professional! Which I think is really cool.
So let’s go and look at all of the posts! Read on and check all the links!
Categories: Console, ds, Game of the Year, Games, Handheld, PC, ps3, PSN, psp, wii, WiiWare, XBLA, xbox 360
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!
Every year something comes around to surprise us. Sometimes it’s a game announcement we weren’t expecting, or games we didn’t think we’d like but ended up loving. OR games that we were just totally unsure on how they’d end up.
Read and see what surprised us this year! As per our other GotY posts, we have 5 things on here as well.
The PS3 was on fire this year. Some new IPs, good exclusive sequels, so finding games to put in the list wasn’t hard at all.
What did we think were the best PS3 exclusives?

The 360 barely got any good exclusives in 2009. So making a top 5 list of the good 360 games that came out this year wasn’t really easy. But we managed, somehow.

The Wii had a pretty slow year this time. It did get a few good games, but the year was mostly filled with shovelware.
But the good games it did get were pretty nice.

With the new generation of games, it seems like third-party companies transitionned to making all their games Multi-Platform. Barely any of them bother making exclusives anymore, which is a shame really, since none of them really bother going to great lengths to use any of the consoles to their full potential.
But that still produces lots of quite good titles, that anyone can play since they’re on more than one console.
So what were the best multi-console releases of 2009?

The industry is shaping up to making downloadable games more and more frequent, with a lot of quality games that can be downloaded not only on PC and consoles, but also handhelds. The appeal is easy to see. Slightly easier and much cheaper to develop games, which can be sold at super low prices to get maximum sells. It’s no wonder the popularity of the medium is increasing all the time.
So we pretty much HAVE to have a category for the best downloadable games. To be precise, this will onlyÂ include games that are downloadable only. Any game that has a retail release in addition to its downloadable release(like Borderlands) does not count.
So what are the best downloadable games of 2009? Read on for the 5 winners!
The DS is still the highest selling console at the moment. It’s been out-selling everything else without trouble for years.
This year was a pretty good year for the DS, with a lot of fun and unique games. If you have a DS, there’s no possible way there wasn’t a game that interested you in the year. Making a list of the best games is no easy task but we tried to narrow it down to 5 great games anyone with a DS should check out.
So read on and see our 5 winners for best DS games of the year!
Handheld gaming is a pretty important aspect of the gaming industry as a whole. The PSP might not be as popular as the DS, sure, but it’s a nice little system with quality games.
Combined with the release of the PSP Go and not that many new interesting releases, the PSP, as always, didn’t have an incredible year. But that’s not to say it didn’t get anything good at all.
The following games are all games that should at least be checked out for Sony’s handheld.
