3 points - Persona 4 (EU)

2 Points - The Last Remnant (PC)
Brutal Legend

1 Point - Dragon Age:Origins
WH40K: Dawn of War 2
Prototype


I presume The Last Remnant(PC) is allowed, since it was released on PC in 2009 which qualifies it according to the OP, though if not bump up Dragon Age to 2 points.

Most of my gaming time in 2009 went to games that were released in 2008...
So of the handful of games I did buy:

3 - Pixeljunk Shooter
2 - Flower
1 - Noby Noby Boy


Assassin's Creed 2, Dragon Age, Uncharted, etc all might be on there if I had a chance to play them :p

Pixeljunk Shooter is really great though, fun local co-op for a few hours.

The only reason I didn't vote for Bayonetta here is because there's no real consensus on it being 2009 or 2010, and most seem to consider it 2010.

So Bayonetta will just have to settle for merely being GOTY 2010.

If this year's "preview" performance is anything to go by, it will do very well next year.

Hm... I guess that's really biased toward indie/downloadable stuff. I did play a few bigger games this year, but they were mostly a year or two old, and the couple I played from this year I wouldn't put on my list.

I voted for it in 2004 so there.

2. Halo 2
3. Half-Life 2
4. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
5. Ninja Gaiden
6. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
7. Katamari Damacy
8. Pikmin 2
9. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
10. Burnout 3: Takedown

Also an honorable mention to me is "The Secret of Monkey Island:Special Edition" was my first time ever playing a game from the series and so I got to see what all the hype was about. I can see why it is considered a gaming classic, I think it has been on enough GOTY lists though so I wont vote for it. Shame only one other adventure game came after it though I hope to see more on xbla in the future.

Well, much like last year, most of 2009 was spent playing games from earlier years and some 2009 games I only purchased this month and haven't yet played.

HUELEN10'S OFFICIAL BALLOT

REGION: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

EXCITEBIKE: WORLD RALLY (Wii/WiiWare) THREE POINTS (3)
OUTRUN ONLINE ARCADE (360/XBLA) TWO POINTS (2)
HATSUNE MIKU: PROJECT DIVA (JAPANESE PSP IMPORT) TWO POINTS (2)
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: SPIRIT TRACKS (Nintendo DS) TWO POINTS (2)
NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. WII (Wii) ONE POINT (1)

THUS MY OFFICIAL VOTE IS IN. RELATED COMMENTARY WILL NOW APPEAR BELOW THIS LINE.

Excitebike: I've played a ton of blockbusters on all console, my DS got some loving, and I fell in love with the PSP this year thanks to Project Diva, but no other game that has come out this year has been able to keep me entertained the way this new Excitebike does. It is very pick-up-and-play friendly, addicting, and most importantly, fun. It has a ton of unlockables, an fucking awesome soundtrack, and it is a great example of a game that totally legitimizes the existence of download games. We need more games like this, games worth playing. Whenever I pick up my controller to play this game, the can slogan comes up in my mind: Truly "Born To Play". The industry as a whole would benefit from more games like this one. What a treasure, and an instant classic to be loved by all for now, and forever. Game of the motherfucking year, easily. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this one, it's jut that good people, it's that freaking good. They don't make games like this anymore, so cherish it people!

Outrun: It is the definitive driving game, but now it's been juiced up for the 360 with crisp visuals. What is not to love? 360 GOTY indeed, and most played on the system this year personally.

Miku: Her sweet voice, which I have on various albums already, became only sweeter when I had part in this amazing music/rhythm game. It is everything a Miku fan could ask for, and a whole lot more! It's also a system seller, hell, why do you think I got a PSP in the first place? :3 Handheld game of the year, easily.

Zelda: This one took me completely by surprise. It fixes all the problems with the previous DS outing and has trains! What is not to love? As for MIC problems, I hadn't had any issues.

Mario: Night and day compared to the DS outing. Fixes everything, and feels fresh. As some would say, it's what SMW should have been.
