Top PC Games of 2009
2009 was a pretty memorable year for many reasons. The pet pig craze made everyone want to go out and replace their pooch or pussy with a pig small enough to fit into a teacup. Undeniably adorable when babies, little did these new pig parents know that they would grow up to be pretty big and quite problematic house guests.
This is the year when Taylor Swift's MTV Video Music Awards speech was rudely interrupted when Kanye West butted in to declare Beyoncé more deserving of the award. Unable to finish her speech, Swift got another opportunity later in the night when invited up on stage by Beyoncé.
Other memorable events includes the death of Michael Jackson only weeks before his big comeback at the O2 in London, and the break-up of Brit-Pop royalty Oasis.
Sexting also became kind of a big deal, with people finally able to succinctly describe the act of sending saucy text messages.
2009 was also a pretty good year for PC games, the best of which you'll see in the list below.
