Another day, another list of top ten games for 2009. We've had Time, we've had the Associated Press, and now Metacritic has joined in on the fun to list the best reviewed games of 2009. Unsurprisingly, PS3 exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves takes the top spot. 

Modern Warfare 2 manages to take two slots, while the PS3 version of Braid actually gets on the list too. Broken down by platform, Sony's black box o' Blu-ray had the best reviewed games all year followed by the PC and then the Xbox 360. In any case, here are the top games of 2009, as judged by Metacritic's review data:

  1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3) [Score: 96]
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) [Score: 94]
  3. Street Fighter IV (PS3) [Score: 94]
  4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360) [Score: 94]
  5. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (DS) [Score: 93]
  6. Braid (PS3) [Score: 93]
  7. Street Fighter IV (Xbox 360) [Score: 93]
  8. God of War Collection (PS3) [Score: 92]
  9. Batman: Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360) [Score: 92]
  10. Forza Motorsport 3 (Xbox 360) [Score: 92]

So, those were the best reviewed games of 2009 ... unless something comes out in the next two weeks that absolutely blows the bollocks off of the collective games media.

Here's how the review averages look in terms of platform:

  1. PS3 
  2. PC
  3. Xbox 360
  4. PSP
  5. DS
  6. Wii

Top ten game music tracks to sleep to

This one's been on the back burner for way too long. While most recent editions of The Sound Card have focused on a single game franchise, I've been wanting to get back to the good ol' "What's on your playlist" kind of posts....more
