2009: A Good Year For Games?

So it’s the end of 2008 today, and as much as I would have loved to have done a “Best games of 2008: The Original Dungeon Keeper Awards”  I really don’t think it’s particularly necessary. If you look over my previous posts from the last three months you’ll know doubt get a clear picture of what I’ve liked and what I haven't.

What I’ve decided to do instead is to use my good friend Wikipedia to find out what games are being released next year and highlight what I think are going to be the best ones.


So the obvious one for me is Resident Evil 5. Sure it doesn't look great but it’s Resi! It never be crap, just decidedly average, and I can live with average. I own a Wii.

You know, looking at this list I’m finding a few surprises that I’m really excited about. For example, a new Mario and Luigi RPG is coming out, and I LOVED Mario and Luigi Partners In Time. It rocked. It was funny, fun to play. The first RPG I ever finished if I’m being honest with you. A new ones bound to be good, and lets face it, I never use my DS anymore.


The Sims 3 looks to be a laugh, as does Street Fighter 4. Grand Theft Auto: China Town Wars might be worth a look as well.  I loved GTA Advance.


Ah! Now, this is definatly going to be game of the year 2009. Battlefield Heroes. It might not have a release date but I bet my bottom dollar it’ll be out before the summer. Free, browser based and massively multiplayer battlefield? Oh yes please!


I hope everyone has a great new years, and you’ll be hearing from me again next year! (well… tomorrow)

  2. Timesplitters 2 HD is a lie.

    Besides, any hopes anyone would have are now dead.
