The EZA Community Top 20 Best of 2009!

  • I had no recollection that this'd be the one game I was trying to figure out. To be in the top 3. Maybe I'll try out the next DA in the far future then, I've never played them.

    But cheers to the deserving top 2!

  • I have no idea what games could be #1 and #2. This is exciting!

  • @ffff0 Arkham Asylum and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are most likely those two games.

  • @jdincinerator Well, now it's no longer exciting. Too bad I've started this conversation.

  • lol that ended quickly. You didn't have to spoil it like that, man! Unless...

  • The point spread will be interesting to see since almost everyone who voted for dragon age gave it a 1st or 2nd place and I don't doubt that the next 2 are more popular.
    I'm curious to see how the upcoming compare on first place votes though I imanigne uncharted 2 especially will be number 1 for many people.

  • I downloaded DA: Origins last year during a Steam sale along with Inquisition so I intend on playing it some time soon.

    Can’t really speak to it because I wasn’t gonna play an isometrics dungeon crawler in 2009 when I was so used to Oblivion and 3D first person games. Now, I don’t care. I wanna try it.

  • #1 and #2 better be Wii Sports Resort and 'Splosion Man!

  • @jdincinerator feel like this should be spoiler tagged

  • Gettin reeeeeeeal worried about my number 1 pick here...

  • @e_zed_eh_intern Sorry I wasn't aware or considerate to the anticipation you guys are having towards the top 2.

  • @ffff0 Damn I'm sorry dude I shouldn't have said anything.

  • @Capnbobamous I thought you might not have voted in this 2009 thread because I didn’t see your vote under AC2 but now I just say you HM’d DA:O.

    Are you not a massive Assassin’s Creed fan?

    Just curious cause AC2 is a classic to most.

  • I didn't vote, but in my heart DA:O is my number one, thanks for voting for it everybody!

  • @dipset I love Assassin's Creed, but of the ones that I've beaten, AC2 is the one that I remember the least. I definitely need to replay it, and I remember enjoying it, but it just didn't grab me like a lot of the others have. I think that might be because I played it immediately after 1 and I was feeling a bit fatigued. I'm probably doing it a disservice here though because like I said I certainly remember enjoying it, it just hasn't stuck with me.

    Also 2009 was a pretty stacked year for me, though unfortunately it seems like a lot of my games didn't make it in.

  • @jdincinerator no need to get salty. Just every time we have one of these, people jump in at the top 5 and spoil it. Not a huge deal if the list was released all at once but since it’s a game per day, anticipation is the reason people return to the thread. And I get wanting to say you knew it ahead of time but some people don’t want to know so if you put just a spoiler tag, that fixes it.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern I'm not getting salty I'm just genuinely sorry that I may have ruined the anticipation. But if I'm really honest I think that firstly I was making a prediction about the games to come-I might be wrong about those entries entirely. Secondly it's well known what those top 2 games could be and with a spoiler you have no idea what's to come. I still maintain my apology but I think I was making educated guesses-at least in the future something will be put in place so this sort of mistake doesn't arise again.

    GT Review

  • Oh, wow, I’ve voted for both of these games. Well…

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is my #5. I’m not a big Batman fan, so Batman: Arkham Asylum was just another 3rd-person action adventure for me. I think I even played its demo, got bored, and dismissed it. Then I’ve bought both it and Batman Arkham City dirt-cheap in 2012. It was OK, but one moment was exceptional (spoilers):

    when I thought I’ve lost all my progress due to a glitch I’ve immediately powered down my PC to avoid rewriting auto-save. Considering that even horror games, like Outlast, usually fail to scary me, I can say only one thing: well done, Scarecrow.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is my #2. At that time, I was very impressed with its trailers – marketing a game as a blockbuster movie was completely new for me. And I was equally impressed with game’s set-pieces, particularly the train sequence. It’s a quality entertainment from start to finish. Most likely it will not impress me in 2021, but a decade ago there weren’t anything better.
