2009 is done and dusted, but there's an awful lot to look forward to in 2010. Over the next week we'll bring you our 50 most anticipated games of the year. It's fair to say that gamers appear to be in for quite a treat in 2010, should most of these titles make their expected release dates and deliver on their early promise. The year will bring everything from MMOs and single-player JRPGs to mature adventure games and visceral first-person shooters. Read on for games 20-11. Missed the earlier entries in our Top 50 countdown? You'll find 50-41 here, 40-31 here and 30-21 here.

20. APB - PC

For the uninitiated, APB stands for "All Points Bulletin" - a US cop term for a report that gives details of a suspect wanted for questioning. APB the game is a massively multiplayer action game from Dave Jones - the man behind both Crackdown and the original Grand Theft Auto. It's cops vs robbers on an epic scale, and it sounds mouth-wateringly exciting. Rather than the traditional level grinding that accompanies so many massively online ventures, APB sounds like it's going to adopt a Modern Warfare-like system, wherein persistent play enhances your arsenal of weapons, rather than simply making you physically harder to kill. Up to 100 gamers can take part in the gang warfare at a time, and since you'll be playing in the comfort of your own home, you won't have to worry about being caught on CCTV as you carve up your mates. Nice one!

19. Brink - Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Autumn

Another day, another FPS title set in a dystopian future – but this one has some seriously neat ideas at play. Brink is a team-based shooter that promises to seamlessly blend single and multiplayer gaming into one dynamic experience. Imagine a class-based game where you’re playing with chums, but where each of you is getting your own narrative experience. Your mission objectives will dynamically change in response to the ebb and flow of a given match, and on top of that there’s a snazzy-looking Mirror’s Edge-like system that lets you slide around the maps like a buttered eel who does parkour. The development team at Splash Damage has a serious collective pedigree, too.

Maybe i'm blind but i can't see I Am Alive on that list, I personally cannot wait to give this game a try but i guess not enough is known about it to consider it.

Also Guild Wars 2 is not in the list i know theres alot of people out on the internet waiting and praying for the release date to be confirmed but the game has been said to be released in 2010 but that could just be hear say.

I know these two games are ones i'm waiting for in 2010 also Metal Gear Solid: Rising is said to be released 09/2010.

The first game was bloody fun.
All that crazy mind-screw crap alongside some awesome bullet time (better than The Matrix) and the idea that overdosing on painkiller HEALED you... Good times.

Max Payne 3 will simply be GTA with a Max Payne skin. While it may be a great game. It will never reach the heights of acclaim that the 1st game got.

Yeah, I've got a lot of disappointments with this list.
Usually I'm okay with them,
but atm, it's really not shaping up the way I would have liked.
That's by no means VG's fault, maybe some of the games I want just aren;t going to be as good as I hoped.
Surely Max Payne 3 should have been epic.

22. BioShock 2
Is still my biggest disappointment, only because clearly the guys have played some of it already and maybe it's not quite as fantastic as the first otherwise it would be further up the list.

I was waiting for that list Altaranga :D
Tbh, I can't believe how angry I got about the order.
Usually I'm fairly calm, but I suppose it's my history with Splinter Cell that brought it out of me.
For me, that's the most anticipated game, of all time...

I forgot about the last guardian, might be worth getting a ps3 just for this...

I'm a bit worried about Fable 3, the first two took 4 years apiece to make and Fable 3 comes out just 2 years after Fable 2. Just because Lionhead are developing for the same console again wouldn't account for halving their development time, would it? I still prefer Fable 1 to Fable 2 so if they're being sneaky and using a lot of 2's content in 3 then I might pass.
