The Associated Press Does Their Own Top 10 of 2009

1 min read


It’s almost the end of the year! Of course we’re going to be inundated by the countless “top-x” lists flying all over the internet. Hot on the heels of Time’s list of absolute fail, we have one from the Associated Press. While it’s certainly a better list – especially for Sony loyalists -  there are of course a few problems…but at least it seems like some people under the employ of the AP actually play games.

I’m a little surprised at inFamous’ place in the top 10 (and the fact that it placed at all), but I’m quite pleased to see Modern Warfare 2 conspicuously absent – I’m not quite convinced its gaming’s holy grail.

List after the jump!

  1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  2. Assassin’s Creed 2
  3. Dragon Age: Origins
  4. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  5. inFAMOUS
  6. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time
  7. Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story
  8. Borderlands
  9. Forza Motorsport 3
  10. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Honorable Mentions: "Shadow Complex," "Scribblenauts," "Professor Layton & the Diabolical Box," "Demon’s Souls," "Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor," "DJ Hero," "The Beatles: Rock Band," "Rock Band Unplugged," "1 vs. 100."

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
