All games were for Xbox 360

UPDATE: I forgot about Shadow Complex, the sidescrolling “metrovania” title that was released this past summer on Xbox Live Arcade. It may be the only game I have played through twice to date. In any case, I would honestly rate it as the second best game of the year (yes, ahead of MW2). It’s that good.

1. Batman Arkham Asylum – As good of a comic book-based video game as I’ve ever played combining stealth, rpg elements, bash-em ups, and collecting. As has been noted many times before by other people, Arkham Asylum was this year’s Rapture.

2. Modern Warfare 2The blockbuster game of 2009.

3. FIFA 10 – Instead of resting on its laurels, it just keeps getting better and better.

4. Fallout 3 DLC – The five DLC (downloadable content) packs added between 8-10 hours to my favorite game from last year.

5. Rock Band: Beatles – Haven’t really played it as much as I could have, but c’mon it’s the Beatles.

6.GTA IV: The Lost and the Damned – Still haven’t gotten around to The Ballad of Gay Tony yet, which looks to be a little more whimsical, but The Lost and the Damned was a solid DLC expansion that added about 4-6 more hours to the game.

7. Street Fighter IV
8. Halo 3: ODST
9. Madden 10
10. NBA Live 10
