PC Games....in 2009

Mr. H Chinaski "Professional Alcohlic"
 
Dragon Age: Origins (PC)
Dragon Age: Origins (PC)
"Quite simply, Game Of The Year. BioWare continue to dominate the RPG world and this is arguably their crowning acheivment thus far. Feindishley hard mind you."
Empire: Total War (PC DVD)
Empire: Total War (PC DVD)
"On release this was a buggy mess, but over the course of the year Creative Assembly have ironed out all it's problems and it is now epic in both nature & execution."
Left 4 Dead 2 (PC DVD)
Left 4 Dead 2 (PC DVD)
"Valve took a real risk in releasing this sequel so quickley, but the gamble payed off handsomely. Great new characters, superb level design and a thriving community make this an essential purchase."
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC DVD)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC DVD)
"To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this title, but boy was I proven wrong. Easily the best recreation of Bruce Wayne's dark world. Kinda reminded me of Bioshock & the Metroid games."
Resident Evil 5 (PC)
Resident Evil 5 (PC)
"'Good Console Port Shock'. What's going on?, all of a sudden the PC is getting respect from the console game makers. If this trend continues what will we have to complain about. It 's truly scary."
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II (PC DVD)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II (PC DVD)
"Not been a vintage year for the RTS genre and  quite frankly this game leaves a lot to be desired. Poor, repetitive single player, but a fantastic multiplayer makes up for it."
Football Manager 2010 (PC/MAC DVD)
Football Manager 2010 (PC/MAC DVD)
"Surely the most addictive thing this side of illegal narcotics?. Sports Interactive have a lot to answer for, my social life for starters."
Hearts of Iron 3 (PC DVD)
Hearts of Iron 3 (PC DVD)
"This didn't get the reviews it deserved in my opinion. Maybe not the best in the series (that place is reserved for HOI2) but it still presses the right buttons for this repressed Hitler-beater."
Borderlands (PC DVD)
Borderlands (PC DVD)
"Uh, to be honest I'm still not sure wheather I like this game or not. If you've got 3 friends (God knows I haven't) then this is certainly a worthwhile purchase."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PC DVD)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PC DVD)
"After enduring the most infuriating night of my life installing this, I must admit I feel somewhat underwhemed by the whole thing. Discarding the dedicated servers was a huge mistake."
ArmA 2 (PC DVD)
ArmA 2 (PC DVD)
"The military simulator came kicking back this year. ARMA 2 was first out the gate, and underneath all the (initial) bugs & glitches lay a deep and rewarding war experience."
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising (PC DVD)
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising (PC DVD)
"Then came ARMA's spiritual father. Initially I loved this game, then it's repetitive nature and restrictive design infuriated me. One to pick up from bargain bins the world over."
The Sims 3 (PC/Mac DVD)
The Sims 3 (PC/Mac DVD)
"Never been a fan of The Sims and thiiiiiis...........didn't change that. I'm sorry, I just don't get what the fuss is about. Then again billions of people can't be wrong, can they?."
The Curse of Monkey Island - Lucas Arts Classic (PC CD)
The Curse of Monkey Island - Lucas Arts Classic (PC CD)
"Amazon don't stock Secret Of Monkey Island, so I used this instead. Been a great year for MI, with both the episodic games and the wonderful remake of the classic original."
Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box (PC DVD)
Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box (PC DVD)
"Look, I warned you people before, STOP MAKING GOOD CONSOLE TO PC PORTS!!!!, I need something to bemoan in my sad little exsistence."
Street Fighter IV (PC)
Street Fighter IV (PC)
"AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!. I can take no more!!!! my head, please help me, AAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!."
Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood (PC)
Call Of Juarez: Bound In Blood (PC)
"Ah, thats better, an FPS which has been ruined by it's desire to appeal to console owners. This was a truly dreadful experience."
Wolfenstein (PC DVD)
Wolfenstein (PC DVD)
"As was this 3rd rate turd of a game. Honestly was this the best they could do?. Wow, it even has y'know an open world aspect, which is sooooooo original & exciting. My God, even FEAR 2 was better."
Prototype (PC DVD)
Prototype (PC DVD)
"Yet another 'Open World Experience' (although as badly implemented as Wolfenstein it could'nt be). Not bad, but nothing too exciting. It passed the time for a week, I suppose."
Aion (PC)
Aion (PC)
"NCSoft board meeting: 'How do we beat WoW in the battle for MMORPG supremecy?'............'I know!!, we rip them off at every turn but give people the abilty to (kinda) fly'........'Alright!!!!!!!'."
Risen (PC DVD)
Risen (PC DVD)
"I personally don't get this game. People have been raving about it, but all I see is a below-par Neverwinter Nights (or, if you like, a not so good Oblivion). Maybe I'll give it a second spin somewhen"
Mount & Blade (PC CD)
Mount & Blade (PC CD)
"Ditto."
Trine (PC DVD)
Trine (PC DVD)
"I quite liked Trine. Some good puzzles and some lovely artwork. Recommended."
World of Goo (PC CD)
World of Goo (PC CD)
"I know this came out last year, but I just used it as an example of the great Indie games released this year. Most noteably 'Time Gentleman Please' which was absolutely brilliant. BUY IT."
Team Fortress 2 (PC DVD)
Team Fortress 2 (PC DVD)
"Again, not released this year, but I had to end on a high note. I've probably played this more than any game released this year, and the superb updates are keeping it fresh."
