Top 100 Biggest Games of 2009. Happy New Year from VGB

1 January 2009

FireworksHappy New Year everyone! See 2009’s biggest games in the Top 100 overview below. 2009 is looking to be yet another awesome year for us gamers!

It’s said that “Anticipation is half the fun.” As such, this list will be based on both factual and indeterminable factors like: hype, a developer’s track record, fanboy anticipation, previous sales if it’s a series, even nostalgia was taken into account. Obviously not every upcoming game could be included or it’d be a top 300, which it was at one point during the 20 hours of researching and editing. So I skipped on expansions to focus on the biggest new releases, but for games to be included they have to have at least been announced or talked about by their developer/publisher. Games that we think are likely to be released outside of Japan this year, or which haven’t been confirmed for release in 2009 yet but have been in development for years, will all be written in italic to make clear it’s our guesstimate it’s coming. The rest of the games have all been confirmed for 2009, but are — as always — subject to possible delay. If you’re looking for the release date and/or media of a certain game, click on its name and you’ll go to a page with the most relevant info on it. With that said…
