Year in review: The best games of 2009

Above: I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Ain't no rest for the wicked awesome.

We're wrapping up our recap of the year that was. Today: the best games of 2009.

At last we come to it. You can click through to the feature on thephoenix.com to read the blurbs for each game, but for easy reference, and with all the usual caveats, here's my top 10 of 2009:
  1. Borderlands
  2. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  3. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  4. Shadow Complex
  5. Flower
  6. Left 4 Dead 2
  7. Red Faction: Guerrilla
  8. Dead Space: Extraction
  9. Street Fighter IV
  10. Prototype
That concludes our coverage of 2009. We're not turning the lights out for the holidays here at Insult Swordfighting, but posting is likely to be light until the new year. As always, thank you for reading. Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, Mitch. I wouldn't mind hearing more about your take on Dead Space: Extraction.
