REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

The 2009 GR Awards

Posted on Friday, January 8 @ 11:26:54 Eastern by
For 2009, we decided to combine three would-have-been separate articles – GR’s Best of 2009, The Worst Games of 2009, and The Best and Worst Gaming Moments in 2009 – into one ginormous unapologetic wrap-up. Maybe it’s symbolic: For better or worse, gaming in 2009 felt like one big lump.

That’s pessimistic, of course. There were plenty of great games to go around, though they were spread evenly throughout the year and their novelty seemed to rise as quickly as they fell. Perhaps it was the number of high-profile sequels and revivals – only 3 titles in our top 10 are completely original – or perhaps it was because there are so many great titles in the B+/A- range that nothing really stood out too far from the pack, or perhaps it was because this is my second year as an editor and I’m slowly becoming jaded. (I’m turning into Duke. Help.)

But I can see you rolling your eyes at us. Oh, GR, you’re just lumping everything together so it would be easier. Hey, we’re not lazy, we’re efficient! And who said writing three features in a week is easy? Actually, I can’t believe we’re doing this. It goes against my lazy efficient nature.

We won’t presume, however, that you will read all three articles in one sitting and in our specified order. Instead, you can view which article you would like to read first, editorial a la carte, if you will. But since us Game Revolutionaries like to save the best for last, I’m going to place our Top 10 at the end of this feature in the hopes that you will give us more hits by clicking on every page before it because I’m evil like that.
