    i thought this was a very good game compared to most of these if you forgot about it please put it in because it is a great game and deserves to be recognized

  • Barbie Island Adventure

    They managed to miss out Pokemon Platinum, Pro Evolution Soccer 2010, Smackdown Vs Raw 2010, SAW and Wanted: Weapons Of Fate? Yet they put in crap like Halo, Forza and Call Of Duty? For shame……

      this is a 2009 list not 2010. Next time actually read the title

  • Lack of silent Hill: Shattered Memories has me sad. =(

  • Zigidias

    Uncharted 2 FTW

  • Beatles: Rock Band… not very original game…

  • Raj

    Wow, this is actually a damn good list. As for underrated games on this list,you all must check out:

    A boy and his Blob
    Demon Souls
    Plants Vs Zombies

    All of these games are good, and have been somewhat under the radar, make SURE you guys pick them up. These games deserve a sequel.

  • Waldo

    Agreed. Uncharted 2 rules them all. Best game I’ve ever played.

  • T_ConX

    The omissions of SMT: Devil Survivor, SH: Shattered Memories and Torchlight DEEPLY sadden me…

  • That is one sick list though i dont think
    Red Faction: Guerrilla should be on there its an alright game, but nothing special

  • Wow, I actually forgot how busy 2009 was in terms of new releases. Of course, the term “new releases” is an ironic one since the bulk are either strong licenses or sequels. That said, its refreshing to see innovative titles like Plants vs Zombies in there. Woot!

    Game Informers top 50 list is pretty much a list of games Gamestop is sure to have for ya in stock if you get bored of what you are playing. Printed game reviews have been dead for a while.

  • Red Faction Guerilla is like GTA4 but with destructible environments and just all-out badassery. There’s no fluff in this game… just pure destruction and action . That list is no joke.
