Wow, you guys, this was such a close race! In the end, you decided that The Sims 3 was the best new video game of 2009, beating out Super Mario Bros. Wii by the tiniest of margins. The original Sims is also packing some heat on the Best Video Game of the Decade poll (you still have time to vote if you haven't already!), which leads me to believe you guys are into simulation games in a serious way!
Although I enjoyed Uncharted 2 and was surprised that it didn't make more headway in the 2009 poll, you really can't argue with the impact that The Sims has had on our culture — this year included.
