MW2 won?!? BOO!! I will never buy it for the PC until it hits about £5 then I will think about it.

***BTW, mirrors edge is on steam for only £3.24***

IMO games released in 2009 weren't that crap, which makes me wonder why so many people voted for MW2 ?

oh well at least shattered horizon was in the top ten :)

IMHO MW2 deserves the place. I was open minded until I got the game and tried for myself. Not letting just a simple news that dedi servers were out, IWNet controls everything, Airport level (which was awesome, let's be honest, it needs to have balls to play such move, and didn't make me into a serial killer, come on...), just let myself be completely open to it.

I was in for a big treat! Such cool new things and I was an addicted fan of MW1. Snipers are less godly but still do the job.
Special-Ops is something awesome, it can get us a bit grumpy when reaching the final phase of the level and then fail, restarting from ground-zero. I had that moments but....boy, was I pleased with myself and my mates when completing in on Veteran. It just manages to give a longer longevity because of the achievements.

Finally, Multiplayer, it can be hard to join people from the same country or even friends but that's what "Invite" is for. Wherever you go, your friends go, all can enjoy the same experience.
The modes avaliable are for everyone's taste, if you want a specific match-type, go for it. You fancy a bit more, go! You want the whole experience, Mosh Pit is the answer, what's not to like?

Everyone gets what they want and how many times you wanted to change map or evade that particular match-type?? Just one mouse click and voila, done! Even Hardcore is there with FF on, ok, you don't kill your teammate, the one to die is you because it acts like a ricochet. Honestly, quite fair, you shot a teammate, you pay for that mistake, he souldn't suffer it.

3rd Person View is a brise of fresh air, at first is confusing and strange but once you get the hang of it, you're in for a treat again! And even get to laugh at some kills from you or of you, it is just that good.

Since everything isn't all roses, I, myself, got with at least 3 cheaters, 2 of the same team, WH and Aimbot. The third was a bit strange, I think it was the host that bugged the game session, everyone could use Grenade Launcher as a full Auto machine gun, even I could use it and don't know (want) any MW2 cheats. Shame that Valve is a bit slow to punish these cheaters and reporting only works if you know some site or specific cheat so VAC team can act, better for them if you have access to the core code.

I think the list is good enough, afterall, even with the crying minority, it was us and only us that voted. Shame some didn't make it, congrats to who made it to the list. Stop blaming the BT team, we all should thank to have a "saying" in this.

So, everyone, Merry Xmas to all, greets from Portugal. BT team, keep on, excellent work and make it even better next year xD

Ah well, guess a lot of people liked MW2 for the single player experience. I still wouldn't buy it on PC until it is either patched to support dedicated servers or drops to about £10. Bought COD1 mainly for the single player experience, bought COD2 50/50 for the single/multiplayer, bought COD 4 20/80 for the single/multiplayer.

Single player set-piece gaming is ok but a minor consideration when i purchase a game these days, once you get a broadband connection there really is no subsitute for multiplayer gaming on a dedicated server. At least the console gamers can easily trade in MW2 at Game or wherever after their 6 hours of gameplay is up.

But at the end of the day if this is what the majority of people want, then i guess it is what we will get.

I find it interesting that people would still play outmoded dx9 2-d tactics FPS games when the genre has been REVOLUIONIZED by the likes of Shattered Horizon, top 10 winner in this list.

Mind-boggling, but as I said in a game recently "People voted for Bush, so any type of stupidity is possible!"

Come try this game, it is being sold for a steal and the new maps are great (i cant say more because I'm under NDA for the expansion Beta. If you don't like it, well then you can go back to playing Tomb Raider or games like MW2 that won't have multiplay at all once some pasty MBA decides "it is not in the best interest for us to continue this service".
Shattered Horizon is the best fps to come out in years, and maybe since the beginning of the genre. It takes times to understand, put the time in, it will reward you a thousand fold!

I don't know how anyone even voted for MW2. I am a hardcore PC FPS gamer and I refuse to get the game. I still have high hopes for OFPDR as multiplayer has issues (no dedicated server support) but I found myself enjoying the single player quite a bit that I play it repeatedly. I really liked the bullet physics in the game. The sniper rifles all fire differently as the rounds are heavier and you need to really arc some shots. The subsonic rounds will bounce off of the ground. It needs some work but it is sure more of a winner to FPS addicts than MW2 is.

Bit-Tech readers are dead to me. MW2#1=Auto fail.

I would never vote for MW2 on matter of principle, and don't think it's #1 material for any other year, but this was just a crap year for gaming so I can see why it won. 2009 also had the most ridiculous amount of controversy in gaming, and I feel like the entire medium has left a bad taste. 2010 cannot come soon enough (not that it'll have Diablo 3 or HL2: ep3).
Hugo 24th December 2009, 13:44 Quote
MY OPINION IS BETTER THAN YOUR OPINION.

Seriously, though, I rather like this list in no way correlates with my own opinion as to what the best games this year were. It's interesting to learn how disparate my tastes and those of the general bit-tech readership are - for better, or worse.

Now, where are those pictures of Harry in a kevlar helmet?

Err, how does it really revolutionize gaming? Zero Grav is not really that ground breaking... I mean really, you like SH, good for you, but there's no need to be so anal about it not getting first - diversity is good in that it makes life interesting. If everyone shared the same opinion - f**k, that'd be boring as crap.

And besides, SH is internet connection dependent, AND versus games like TF2, so incredibly static in the sense that it lacks specialization (other than grenades, but what the heck?), and as a result my group of friends switched back to TF2 after two rounds in a LAN shop...

MW2 is top ten but there BIG problems with servers, matchmaking, cheats ruin it. Any other game released in this state would get laughed at.

We want pictures of Harry in a kevlar helmet and if possible a video of him of a days work with it.

Oh and maybe Harry trying to pick up some girls with it on xD That would be hilarious

In my opinion, this voting can't be trusted. Why? Because surely people bought the most hyped games and left the others aside. This means probably no one in here played all of the eleven games in here.

You still can say that this represent a pondered average world wide. But I am sure that a professional list would differ from this one.

Typical cash in hand review. Hey Bit-Tech I'm making a game, how much is it gonna cost me to get game of the year honors?

Since this is a PC only list then the games listed should do things in favor of the PC. MW2 is a direct port from a console and has ZERO features in it for a PC except mouse and keyboard support. This game shouldn't even be on this list. Not to mention the single player campaign is like 3 hours long. $60.00 3 hours (with no happy ending). The Multiplayer isn't even the best multiplayer on any system and offers absolutely nothing new or innovative. Not to mention the lack of dedicated servers, no lean, no customization, and hackers and cheaters running rampant until the once every three month patch.

Bit-Tech is located in Europe and you mean to tell me you haven't played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat which is far superior to Modern Warfare 2. And where is Assassin's Creed II? I know it's been a slow year for the PC but this is absurd. I know Modern Warfare 2 sold millions on the console and justifiably so because it's a crap arcade style console game thats fun for 15 minutes and is a complete waste of $60.00 like most console games. But to give it game of the year on the PC is a complete slap in the face to what PC GAMING IS ALL ABOUT.

If Modern Warfare 2 represents PC gaming or gaming in general...then the nay sayers are right....PC gaming is dead and so is video gaming period.

you should just go away. Did you even notice this list was voted by players/readers ? Or do you still think it was rigged by bit-tech for $ ? :(

seriously, just leave

Oh by the way my Game of the Year is ........................ S.T.A..L.K.E.R. Call Of Pripyat

Exploration, RPG elements, awsome FPS game play, excellent weapon physics, Directx 10 and 11, customization, a moding community, meaningful side quest, great story, very good A.I., Lean feature, huge replay value, superior graphics. This is PC gaming.

I haven't gotten around to playing COP. Well that's because there's no english version yet.

Just BUY (these developers deserve to get paid) the Russian or German version and use a little PC skill to swap the Russian or German language File for an English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Ebonics, or whatever language you want file. Presto Change oh

Next topic:
Sorry looking back at the sales figures for MW2 PC and the petition to boycott MW2 PC and every forum I visited Most PC Gamers despise MW2. So it's really weird to me how it made #1 on this list allegedly voted by gamers. To vote this game PC's number 1, a game with no PC features at all says that maybe you should donate your computer to charity and go buy a console.

As a console game MW2 is great but for a PC it flat out sucks.

Just finished playing Mirrors Edge PC. Wish I could go back and change my vote, it was a truly excellent little game. Fundametally puzzled by the bad press it got.

Why the hell should I have to go digging around in the game's files to enable something as basic as English, the most popular gaming language in the world? If the developers want to get paid they can earn their rubles by releasing a game that includes English, which is a necessity for the largest, oldest and richest game market in the world. I pay them to make the games, not so I can assemble it from a hacked-together list of patches downloaded from warez sites. If it's of any interest, I've also got Shadow of Chernobyl and it took a fan-made mod to clear the bugs enough to make it playable. These developers need to get off their arses if they want to get paid.

Looking back at the number of boycotters that bought the game, not to mention MW2's general market penetration, I am unsurprised that it's probably the most popular game in this vote because a huge number of casual gamers bought it and have not bought a large number of the games also on this list, and therefore will not vote for them. Also the "allegedly" thing is wonderful; consider this:

If Infinity Ward don't give a crap about PC gamers, which by your no-PC-features-no-dedicated-server-support stance they surely don't, why the hell would they bribe the staff of a PC gaming forum to rig it to come first?
