    WC's Fave Five Video Games of 2009!!



    You know shit was getting real when we started getting to play as Deadmau5. 2009 was a wild time, with some fledging franchises turning into heavyweights, some first-timers ready to become franchises, and a console generation full of confidence hitting on all cylinders. After a dynamite 2008, how would the game industry respond the next year? I dunno, you tell me. Send me a list of your fave five video games of 2009, let's say by 11:59 PM on Sunday, June 30th. Y'all know the drill.

    Usual rules apply:
    1. North American release dates are used in the event a game was released at different times in different regions
    2. Ports and remasters are not allowed but remakes are. Please make sure you are voting for the original incarnation of a game or a complete remake of it. When in doubt, ask.
    3. Please verify each game you submit to make my life easier. Not everything on these Wiki lists are NA release dates or completely original releases, so click through to the game's page specifically to make absolutely sure your game qualifies. Sorry for the extra bit of homework, but I'll love you forever.

    Not a particularly exciting year of gaming for me personally, but there are a ton of titles I know a lot of people really loved.

    Had a few ones I really enjoyed, though. :D
    Everything will surely be alright.

    List in. One and two were pretty easy, three didn't exactly reinvent the wheel but played a ton of it so it had to feature.

    What happens when a game was released on pc in 2008 then released on consoles in 2009?

    I want to vote for the pc version. In this case does it have to be platform specific?

    It's the very first year it was released, so if it were first released in 2008, and it's console release is essentially a direct port, then it would only count for 2008.

    Hmm...ok cool. It was for Command and conquer red alert 3. Im not sure if its a direct port since the console version most likely sucked since consoles are so limited when it comes to rts games. Either way its 2008.

    Its not as good as the first one but theres something to be said for a game made 10 years ago that still has a healthy online community, active fan mod support, 3 expansion packs, and very true to the source material.

    Maybe and but ...that doesn't change the fact its still stands the test of time. Its an RTS hyrbrid . Then again the first one(released in 2005) is basically a traditional RTS and is still actively played today. The latest one(DOW3) was dropped. The same can be said for Supreme Commander: forged alliance and Company of heroes. If the game is great enough like the ones i just mentioned, they will be played forever. All the games i mentioned have expansions packs(even in DOW 1 the last one came out for 3 years after the main game out), Mods, unofficial balance patches(due to company halting support), and healthy online communities.

    I think those sort of games just tend to have long lifespans. Like the Total War games or most of Paradox's games.

    I totally agree with those games as they fall into the same bin as the ones i mentioned. But imo that kind of makes them the best type of games.

    There wasn't a Peggle game released initially in 2009 so I can't contribute much =/


    CWA: A Decade of Decadence
    Maybe the end of something great.
    Maybe the start of something new.
    Stay tuned.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Video Games of 2009!!

    Sorry for the wait everyone, I didn't account for how busy that holiday week would make me. I hope you've enjoyed the extra speculation time because it's time to get crackin'

    Tied - 12th
    The Beatles Rock Band - 10 (Coxatron #5)



    Bionic Commando - 10 (RED #5)

    FIFA 10 - 10 (Slick Mitch #5)



    Punch-Out!! - 10 (Baloocha #5)



    Skate 2 - 10 (The Natural #5)


    Couple of sports games, couple of old school reinventions, and the greatest band of all time sit at the bottom of our list. I never played Beatles Rock Band despite my love of the franchise, probably because I couldn't bring the songs into the rest of my library, but it always looked like a great time (maybe I need to dust off the guitar...). Punch-Out was an amazing callback to a classic game, but I never played Bionic Commando to see if it was the same way.

    More tonight.

    Bionic Commando isn't great but it brings back memories so I had to give it a shot.

    Batch the second


    Tied - 11th
    Angry Birds - 20 (The Natural #4)



    inFamous - 20 (Sakura #4)



    Prototype - 20 (RED #4)



    Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time - 20 (Silk #4)



    Wii Sports Resort - 20 (Fuji Vice #5, Sakura #5)


    Rather fitting that Prototype and Infamous would pull the same score since they were compared a lot back then as open world anti-hero type things. For my money I much preferred Infamous and almost threw it a vote but that same slot ended up going to A Crack in Time, an amazing action platformer with an argument for best Ratchet game. Angry Birds remains to this day a solid time-killer, through god knows how many additions to the canon, and Wii Sports Resort was a great follow-up to the original with a ton of more fun stuff to do with the ol' Wiimote.
