It’s the end of the year of an old year and a beginning of a new one. After getting together with a bunch of gamers (both hardcore and casual), here’s our list for the “Top 10” games of 2009. The list is only in alphabetical order so don’t get feisty because Assassin’s Creed 2 is at the top and Uncharted 2 is at the bottom. The qualifications for a title to be part of this list was that it had to have had sales of at least 250 000 units in the Americas on at least one single system (according to sales website http://vgchartz.com) through Dec. 19, 2008. The reasoning for titles to be excluded under 250k in sales is that even that critics might love a game but if a game isn’t well received by the mass market, then it’s hard to call it a top game (which hurt a lot of Wii games since there were several people who voted for this list who wanted to vote for games like Silent Hill: Scattered Memories and Madworld). This list is about the Top 10 games that everyone enjoyed, not just the critics.
Like the list? Hate it? Leave a comment because no list is perfect and any discussion is welcome.
First off, I’d like to thank my cat for allowing me enough time to edit and type this up…really nice of the furball to give me a couple of minutes peace for a while
We’re looking at the video game sales the week before Modern Warfare 2. It’s a bit of a lame duck week but considering the piss-poor sales of Band Hero and Lego Rock Band, it’s interesting nonetheless.
We also mull through the video game releases of this week which is bigger in the number of quality big name titles but is still dwarfed by Modern Warfare 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
