The curtain for the 2009 games has closed and so it is time to make that cliche, Game Of The Year list, which is a big part of the gaming culture. In making this list it’s important to note that yearly updates of franchises, such as FIFA and PES, are not considered as candidates unless they bring something really fresh to the table. Also the PC gaming receives basically no love from me as i am a console gamer and therefore i may have omitted some excellent PC only games this year. Please feel free to let me know and we can include them.
On a personal note unfortunately i did not have the pleasure of playing games like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Assassin’s Creed II and Forza 3 which could have been valid candidates. However, i suspect that even if i had my choice would still have been the same. My GOTY is Demon’s Souls (PS3), an action-RPG which has only been released in Japan and the US so far (a good thing that the PS3 is region free when it comes to games). It’s a brilliant game and can not recommend it enough.
Also worth mentioning is that for the first time since it’s launch the PS3 probably had the better exclusive titles than its rivals. It was about time.
Some games i really enjoyed playing and would like to recommend are Uncharted 2: Amond Thieves (PS3), Machinarium (PC).
