WiiSpin’s Game of the Year 2009!!!

Alright boys and girls, we are at that time of year. The time when we look back at the year that was. I have to say, 2009 was actually a pretty great year for yours truly. I decided to take control of mind and body. I lost a massive amount of weight, probably like a 10 year old kids worth, I also seem to finally have pegged down what it is I want to do in the future. Yeah, 2009 was a life-changing year if I do say so. Oh, there’s also the little thing of Mrs. Mike and I buying a house this year. You guys have been with me for all the ups and downs that process took us through, and I am thankful for that. I’m also thankful that we made it out and that our house is actually quite amazing. Our Christmas tree is up and it’s beautiful, even if it is completely lacking presents underneath. The purchase of the house was by far the best part of the year for me. So, what was the best part of the year for the Wii?

That’s right folks, I’m giving the first annual WiiSpin Game of the Year Ultimate Supreme Mega Award of The Year to The Conduit. (Side note: That has got to be the most awesomely obnoxious name for an award ever. I’m so proud right now…) The first person shooter to rule all first person shooters was a game changer. High Voltage Software and Agent Ford did something on the Wii that not many people thought was possible: completely destroyed the FPS competition. Not only is it the best shooter on the Wii, but I will argue that it is as good as almost any shooter on any console. When you take the story, which is actually pretty good, add in the epic that is the All Seeing Eye, and then allow the player to customize the controls in ways that the PS3 and 360 can only drool over; and you’ve got a winner any way you look at it. Yes, 2009 belonged to The Conduit. Congratulations High Voltage, you’re a winner and I can’t wait to try the next shooter you bring to the Wii. Stay thirsty my friends.
