The Honour List 09


I played a lot more than 5 games last year, unfortunately some great games were on the cut list so here we’re going to have lots of mentions. I also want to take the time to mention other titles that I played that weren’t bed either as well as the titles that I disliked for one reason or another. So lets kick off this list with the honorable mentions.

Honorable Mentions:
Red Faction: Guerrilla [2009]A little bit of shooting and a little bit of destruction, what more could you ask for?
Braid (PSN) [2009]The manipulation of time to create fun, yet challenging puzzles, this game is really something else.
Trine (PSN) [2009]There are many unique elements in this game, and there is no one way to complete this game.
Shatter (PSN) [2009]Breakout on steroids, the concept isn’t new but Sidhe was definitely onto a winner here.

Assassin’s Creed [2007]This game had so much potential but unfortunately they missed the ball with the repetitive missions.
Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction [2007]The welcomed entry into the next-generation, finally bringing Ratchet in High Definition.
Resident Evil 5 [2009]Not normally a fan of these games, but the co-op story was a winner for me.
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune [2007]The story was interesting, but unfortunately there was too much gun battle for my liking.
Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom [2007]Enjoyed the series on the PSP, unfortunately the PS3 version just doesn’t feel right.
Flower (PSN) [2009]I don’t know if you could really classify this as a game, it’s more of a relaxation exercise.
Uno (PSN) [2009]Uno is probably one of my favourite family games, if only there were more people online to play it.

Dishonorable Mentions:
Bionic Commando [2009]Controls seemed really janky, made the game unnecessarily frustrating.
LittleBigPlanet [2008]This game builds itself around creating content, something which I don’t have a knack for.
Ratchet & Clank: A Quest for Booty [2008]It’s a shame Insomniac were forced to make this, worst title out of all the series.
Resistance: Fall of Man [2007]I just don’t like FPS’, and I’m not that great at them either.
Tony Hawk’s Project 8 [2007]First time the series is HD, doesn’t make the game any better though.
Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground [2007]This game series is becoming stale, each game since Underground 2 is progressively worse than the last.
Noby Noby Boy (PSN) [2009]There is no objective to this game, you just eat everything and then poop it out.
Pain (PSN) [2008]This game is so repetitive it gets boring, and they charge you extra for extras.
Rag Doll Kung Foo (PSN) [2009]This game is really basic, it also doesn’t help that I don’t care for the genre.

I know there may be some people that disagree with where I’ve placed some of the titles, but remember that this is my opinion and it reflects what I look for and what I enjoy in video games. If you haven’t already, you should at least rent some of the titles I have high on the list, they are well worth checking out.
