X-Play's nominees for 2009 game of the year.

X-Play will have their best of the year show sometime next week, and for game of the year these are their finalists:

Assassin's Creed II (360, PS3, PC)
Borderlands (360, PS3, PC)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (360, PS3, PC)
Infamous (PS3)
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3)

Thoughts? Opinions? Agree? Disagree? What should be on there? What shouldn't be on there?

I HAVE to imagine that something came out in Q1 2009 that was somewhat important... Street Fighter 4 maybe?

Arkham Asylum and Dragon Age should have been there, but I really can't argue with their choices too much.

Borderlands? really? it's a fine game. a solid B game... not game of the year material... i'd put Batman and Plants vs. Zombies on the list for games of the year.

Re: X-Play's nominees for 2009 game of the year.

That's a hell of a list. I love Borderlands, but I would substitute Arkham Asylum there instead. I'd probably choose Uncharted 2 as the top game. After that, on this list, it would come down to ACII or Infamous. Not sure how that would come out, although I haven't quite finished ACII yet. Throw in Arkham Asylum and I think my head would explode trying to choose.

While all 3 of those games are similar in terms of gameplay in many respects, they feel completely different. That said, ACII and Arkham tell better stories, but the setting and gameplay of Infamous keeps bringing me back.

One thing is for sure though. This has been a great year for games as far as I'm concerned. There are several other games that could almost make this list.

Assassin's Creed II? Really? And I loved Modern Warfare 2, but come on. Is this Best Game of the Year or Most Hyped Game of the Year?

Re: X-Play's nominees for 2009 game of the year.

Assassin's Creed II gets my vote.

Though, that may change when my PS3 and InFamous arrive tomorrow.

Batman: Arkham Asylum should be on the list. I can't really judge MW2 and Borderlands considering I haven't played them.

Batman should be on the list but I would think they might choose Unchated 2.

It wouldn't really make sense to release their best games in Q1. Everyone will have used up their money on Christmas and you'd have no holidays to encourage people to buy for.

A solid list that I can mostly agree with. I'm just saddened at the lack of love for Demon's Souls on all these "best of" lists and awards at the end of this year. I really thought that was one of the best games all year. I guess it just doesn't have very broad appeal.

Q1 2010 may actually have some serious contenders next year with Alan Wake and GoW3 both dropping in March. FF13 as well or is that June now? Hard to keep up.

Almost forgot, Bioshock 2 in February.

And since I bought a PS3 the other day, I'll get it for that instead of 360.

^ Good idea considering the 360 version will actually be a bit... watered down. While the content will be the same, the PS3 will have high bitrate 1080p video and uncompressed audio while supposedly the 360 version will have lower bitrate 720p video and compressed audio.
