Great thread - should we split this up into different categories to discuss best games? e.g. rpg, fps, rts etc...

I'd vote FO3, even if it was released in fall '08, since there have been 5 DLCs made throughout '09.

*sighs in lameness*

That game was so boring I tried playing it like 3-4 times and is the only game of 2009 I regret buying. Now I do not consider myself a particularly picky gamer, and admittedly RTS is not my #1 favourite genre. But I couldn't stop playing DoW 1 till I finished it including all the skirmish maps vs AI.

See the reason they DRMed the hell out of that game with Steam AND GFWL is because they knew they made a complete POS, and everyone that got sucked into buying it on week #1 would be selling it the day after they installed it.

Tried the demo and it was quite good! Inspired me to play the first one so that's what I am doing right now. So far very cool.

First half of 2010, no date yet. They delayed it so as not to compete with Modern Warfare 2 like everybody else who's delayed games to 2010, lol.

Starcraft II. I think it's supposed to be released before years end. Looks like a winner. (I hope).
