The Experience Points Podcast
A weekly video game podcast from the co-writers of
EXP Podcast #58: The 2009 Year-end Extravaganza
As 2009 draws to a close, it's time to take a step back and reflect on the games we played over the year.  Being the rebels that we are, Jorge and I are even letting pre-2009 games get in on all the GOTY action played numerous games this past year that were not even released in 2009.  Instead of abandoning them to the sands of time, we decided to do a super-sized show that highlights both our favorite 2009 titles as well as our favorite gaming experiences from the past calendar year (release dates be damned!).

As always, feel free to offer your assessment on the year and share your top gaming moments from 2009.  Thanks to everyone who visited the site over the past year; without you we'd just be yelling at the screen.  Have a great New Year, and we'll see you in 2010!

Some discussion starters:

- First thing's first: What were your favorite 2009 titles?  Which games are we missing out on?

- Regardless of release date, which games hooked you over the past year?  Did you find a hidden gem in your back catalog, or are you still pouring hours into a game like Roller Coaster Tycoon?

- We didn't have enough time to touch on this in the podcast, but what were your favorite gaming trends or surprises from 2009?  What are you looking forward to in 2010?
