    As far as movie of the year goes, I want to give it to district 9 - it was everything I wanted to see from a sci fi movie. However Inglorious Bastards left a constant smile on my face.

    Alternate category: Best comedy of the year is definitely the hangover

    I love you man was pretty damn funny

    I'd go as far as to say funnier than hangover

    Inglorious Bastards is a pretty damn hard movie to beat for best of 09.

    Then again I have not seen the road, but I have seen up, paranormal activity, and district 9. they are all good contenders

    I think Avatar will probably end up being my film of the year, most likely

    Also, biggest disappointment of this year was Brutal Legend, hands down. So awful.

    Man I really need to start working so I can purchase more games.

    I'm only getting MW2 and DA:O for chirstmas, because Mass Effect 2 among other things comes out in January, and I haven't even been able to get around to Arkham Asylum yet.

    Also haha, The Force Unleashed 2.

    And I find myself not very interested in Halo: Reach.

    Force Unleashed was actually a lot better than I thought it would be

    It still wasn't very good, though.

    And 100% from top critics, actually.

    Still, it's pre-release, and averages tend to go down on release day, but I wouldn't expect it to go down too much.

    Seems like a lot of people are giving it a hard time because it's a story that's been done a few times before, and that James Cameron is getting a "free pass" based on his previous works.

    I would argue that, because it's James Cameron, people are unfairly expecting more based on his previous works, and aren't content with a tried-and-true story simply told in a newer way.

    I'm excited for Force Unleashed II

    the first one was an enjoyable game with some glaring flaws and if they clean those up it'd make a hell of a fun God Of War clone

    and while I could just play god of war, that doesn't have lightsabers.

    Burnout: Paradise was basically the perfect racing game for me.

    Arcadey, big and pretty.

    that game was the biggest modern warfare ripoff.

    no but seriously the fact that they are still releasing content for that game is incredible.

    anything new since island?

    not to my knowledge

    they may be done, but who knows

    still, it's amazing they've supported that game for over a year, closing in on two this january

    Didn't they say that they're gonna introduce planes into the game?

    that was a rumor, like, a year and a half ago

    actually not a rumor, they did confirm they were messing around with it, but they didn't say it would definitely make it in

    one hopes that it'll at least be in the next burnout

    which might be awhile since those guys are doing a need for speed game

    Burnout Paradise is the best damn game.

    Big Surf Island was probably the coolest piece of paid DLC ever. The free bike DLC was just wonderful.

    Probably the only non-PS3 exclusive I ever bothered getting a Platinum in.

    well, it gets kind of repetitive, the physics were neat but kind of glitchy, and there was at least one part of the game that completely fucking sucked, that being the "wrest the star destroyer from the sky" part.

    also if you like Star Wars at all it sort of tried to insinuate itself into canon

    and by insinuate I mean blow a fucking hole in the wall and say I'M HERE NOW DEAL WITH IT

    The gameplay is God of War-lite but without all the cool setpieces. The camera can be pretty problematic at times. It can also rely heavily on QTEs, but I'm a weirdo that loves those things so that was a plus for me. Level design was damn boring.

    The story ties the prequel trilogy to the original trilogy, so that's a plus or minus, depending on how far apart you think those two should stay.

    My main complaint with the game is that I had a lightsaber and it was still taking me multiple hits to take down lowly Stormtroopers. I know having a "real" lightsaber game with one hit kills and limbs flying everywhere probably doesn't translate well into gameplay for most people, but...damn, I'd have no problem with it whatsoever. Give me that chance to turn a crowd of Stormtroopers into white-armored limbs and I will take it.

    Force powers were pretty neat though. Reminded me a lot of Psi-Ops, if you ever played that (you should have).

    EDIT: Oh, beaten hard

    I thought about doing like a Top 5 for the decade.

    It would consist of Uncharted 2, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and three other games that I'm not sure of yet.

    there should be a demo of it on live

    I'd say play that just to see if you're down with the basic gameplay

    but if you already played that and enjoyed it I don't see why you wouldn't like the rest of it, especially for how cheap it is now

    my first big videogame dissapointement was Predator Concrete Jungle.

    It couldve been so much better, and that last boss was fucking retarded

    The alien cameo was fun, but god damn they pissed me off

    Shit yes.

    Buying it on PS3 because of the 1080p cutscenes, and also because I typically buy games on the lead console, if possible.

    It's nice that 360-only owners will get a chance to play it as well, though.
