2010 Jimmy Gem nominees for best games still being played from 2009. Please comment.
Nobody put more time into Borderlands than BatRastered this year. Borderlands also released 2 DLC's and a patch that raised the level cap. Borderlands is one of the most talked about games on Gouki.com. Borderlands catalog page.
Personally I played the shit out of this game this year. I love it! According to Raptr I played 119 hours of this. What it doesn't say is that was within a weeks time span. Read the PWN diaries.
Halo 3 [Jan-Sept]
You gotta be playing some sort of Halo right Jimmy. Halo is Gouki.com's preferred shooter.
Street Fighter IV [Jan-Apr]
"Insert Cinderkin endless battle on endless nights take here."

I love my city sims and RTS games. I've been hyped for Anno 2070 for sometime now. Here we have a closer look of how the gameplay is actually going to work. Here's my thoughts.
The thing that stands out the most to me is that there are only 2 factions. It's like the guy at PAX showing me this MMO fighting game, similar to League of Legends and it only having 1 map. WTF 1 map? Maybe Anno works with only 2 factions, but that just seems uncreative. Look at the color in the trailer. Green and grey, that seems to be the only 2 colors they had for this game. The cities don't look fun to build and if there's nothing cool to look at, then what motivation do I have to build? There's some combat, but that doesn't look interesting at all. I'm currently unhyped for Anno 2070 and I'll probably forget about it at this rate. Don't be a Jimmy!
Apple just released a graphics update that Valve claims up the frame rate 120%.Yesterday, Apple released Snow Leopard Graphics Update, designed to address issues being experienced with high-performance games on Mac OS X 10.6.4. The issue was brought to light by Valve Software, which had recommended that Mac gamers not update to Mac OS X 10.6.4 until the issue was addressed. Valve, which has been working closely with Apple and graphics card companies to improve gaming performance on the Mac platform, has now posted a technical explanation of the steps it has been able to take to improve performance as facilitated by the new software update. While the details are certainly interesting, the bottom line is that frame rates have been increased by 15% to 120% on some newer Mac hardware. We are seeing dramatic performance improvements on iMac (Late 2009 and Mid 2010), Mac mini (Early 2009 and Mid 2010), Mac Pro (Early 2009), MacBook (Early 2009 and Mid 2010) and MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2010) models. Depending on the game, video settings and the hardware, we have measured frame rate improvements from 15% to 120% on these systems. On older systems, we are generally already operating at the limits of the hardware, so it is not obvious that any significant performance improvements can be achieved in the future. Valve has made a significant investment into the Mac OS X platform, working to bring its entire library of high-profile games to the Mac while also opening up its Steam game distribution platform to allow other developers to easily offer Mac versions of their titles.
Bioshock Infinite is coming out next week and Irrational Games have released an all new full blown TV trailer. Check it out!
This game is looking amazing! I know BatRastered is excited for it. What are your thoughts on this game? Did you play Bioshock 1 and 2? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

As I watched this video for the first time, I took some notes. I time stamped them. It's Sleeping Dogs, it's Square Enix. It's the end. :(
0:42 You might need to read to play this game. Unless you speak Chinese.
0:52 Cellphone time! The most annoying part of GTA IV.
1:03 Send Johnny Rat Face thru.
1:18 Way to show off your new game by getting into the car on the passenger's side. :| So far this looks exactly like GTA IV, but worse.
2:23 WTF, cellphone minigames? I hate cellphones. I don't want to play a game, playing a game on a hand held. Fuck!
2:40 Everybody is driving on the wrong side of the street.
2:58 Cut scene
3:10 Jumps you into a combat scene.
3:35 The studio worked with some MMA Jimmy you've never heard of to make the combat as authentic as possible. Using the environment around you looks really, but overall the combat is a Batman (Arkham series) clone.
4:15 So the knife just breaks?
4:27 The shooting looks cool.
4:56 Jimmys is getting blasted!
5:35 The shooting looks like the best part so far. Now getting on a motorcycle. :(
5:38 He puts on a helmet. lol.
5:54 This is what we saw at E3. Shooting out the tire causes the car to flip into the air. Perfectly normal right?
6:04 Another car goes flying!
6:13 Now for a motorcycle. lol.
6:57 Car swapping in real time is pretty sweet.
Not that excited for this one? Has Square Enix taken on more games than they can handle? I don't know anymore. So many of my favorite video game companies have been struglling with making new games.
0 hype for this game. Vote, Comment and Share. Don't be a Jimmy!

I praise Darksiders, but did not enjoy Darksiders II as much. Who cares? Let's talk about Statues.
I'm still waiting for the day a four player version of this game is announced. Like the Zelda game you can play with 3 friends. This style of gameplay is just like Zelda. I would say that the first game is what I expected an adult Zelda game to be similar to. They do seem to be going balls to the wall with these statues. Remember the Q stands for Quality. So they are probably going to be very nice. I remember how mine was delivered with the first game.
