Time's top ten games of 2009

Dec 09 // Jim Sterling    @JimSterling

It's almost the end of the year, which means that top ten lists and reflective features are all the rage. Time magazine is among the first to print its definitive top ten games of 2009, and I'm sure you can all guess which game has taken the top slot -- that's right, Velvet Assassin!

I mean, Modern Warfare 2.

Surprisingly, Batman: Arkham Asylum takes second position while DJ Hero somehow manages to be the third best game of the year. Here is the complete rundown of Time's picks. See how much you agree/disagree with the mag's selection:

  1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  2. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  3. DJ Hero
  4. Borderlands
  5. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  6. Geo-Defense Swarm
  7. Scribblenauts
  8. Halo 3: ODST
  9. Assassin's Creed 2
  10. Uncharted 2

An interesting mix of totally predictable selections littered with a few surprises. What do you think of the list? A good top ten? Totally incorrect? Evidence of BIAS? Feel free to hash it out in the comments and let us know what your own picks would have been.
