image Another best of 2009 list… in April? May is just one week away, but Famitsu takes a long time to roll out their yearly awards. Actually, they just posted the results, which we translated below.

 

Which game took top honors? Hint it starts with a “D” and ends in “IX”.

Game of the Year
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies

 

Seeing Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies in the top spot is hardly unexpected. However, Famitsu gave a nod to Uncharted 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, two Western titles. Maybe Square Enix’s Extreme Edges has a chance to succeed. After all, Famitsu considered them the best video game maker of 2009 too.
