Games of The Year 2009 (help needed)

First off I would like to say hello to the gaming community of Destructoid!

I am new to these parts and this is my first blog post.

So the end of the year is rapidly approaching and like most people I am reflecting on what games I have most enjoyed this year. Althought every year I formulate some kind of list in my head (last year went to Fallout 3 with Valkyria Chronicles coming in second) I decided to write out a proper list that may or may not help others decide on a which games to get for christmas. It will at least flex my decision making skills!

So here is where I need your help, There are many games that I have in fact not played and those could in fact be the best games in the world. So any suggestion on games to play is welcome. Also feel free to comment on my list or comment on anything else for that matter. Do you agree with my choices ?

I will eventually release a finalised version by "the holidays" (or at the very latest before the end of 09) that will feature the top ten and a small review of each of the games.

PS:Should this have been a forum topic?

Here is the list: (consoles indicated are the consoles I have or would play them on)
