So Modern Warfare 2 did well did it? Funny, first I have heard of it ;)

Aye, good to see the PC platform apparently being non-existent according to these ELSPA chaps. :roll:

Anyhow, I've enjoyed "FIFA 10", "Batman: Arkham Asylum", "Left4Dead2 (on the PC)" and "CoD4: MW (also on the PC)", "Gears of War 2", "Halo 3" from those lists. I've dabbled with the beginning of "GTA IV" but have yet to seriously dive in. I have not enjoyed "RE 5".

P.S. Never mind the plethora of other titles I've bought during the course of 2009 and early 2010 which haven't made it to the posted lists in the article.

So Uncharted didn't even feature on the all formats one? That's a bit poor!

^ That is a surprise.. Out of those games last year, I got MW2, FIFA 10, AC2, KZ2 - traded in, UC2, LBP, RE5, BAA, and InFamous, all on PS3. I have others on that list but they weren't released in 2009. I could buy another 10 games this year too, maybe more.

I'd say 2009 belonged to Nintendo. I bet the development costs are a fraction of MW2, there are many more Nintendo games and some of those games are old. It's just more money in the bank!

KFD, it's worth perservering with RE5. It actually gets better as you level up your weapons, and it really kicked in for me on about my third play through, although that was great as I did it co-op. Of course, it might be that it just doesn't click with you though!

Same as Bayonetta. I want to make it last as it's so f**king good, but I'm really looking forward to building up my moves and weapons and attacking the game again.

Thanks for the feedback, Ric however, "RE5" had its chance and blew it. I'm not touching that game again even for 1 pound. "Bayonetta" I might pick-up after it falls in price; right now I'm waiting for my copy of "Darksiders" to arrive so it can join my backlog of newly bought games that I will complete before buying anymore ("Mass Effect 2" being the exception).

:shock: Wow!! Nintendo sure are dominating sales on the Wii, 3rd parties don't even get a look in at the top ten.

No SF IV and Batman really low on the 360 charts. "360 has the best games". Yeah, but all the morons buy the s**t ones :roll:
