2009 Game of the Year

Honorable Mention: Uncharted 2

I went back in forth between this and Uncharted 2. Ultimately, Batman surprised the crap out of me while I expected good things from Uncharted 2. Rocksteady Studios really raised the bar for what licensed games should be. This all coming from a studio who for all intents and purposes had never made a “good” game.

Other fun choices:

Best Graphics: Uncharted 2
Best Artistic Design: Brütal Legend
Best Action Game: Assassin’s Creed 2
Best Fighting Game: Street Fighter IV
Best Adventure Game: Secret of Monkey Island

    I’m not so sure about new super mario, but can’t really think of anything that should be its replacement 😦

    Super Mario World is one of my favorite games ever and this is essentially a sequel to it. Besides you are right, there really wasn’t much competition against it this year.
