Q did his best in trying to find the 20 most anticipated games coming in 2009, with a few honorable mentions. But hey, if he missed any, let us know in the comments. Enjoy:

Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360, PS3) – Despite the controversies surrounding the setting and the African zombies in the game, Resident Evil 5 is one of the most anticipated titles of 2009. With all the trailers and gameplay footage released, the game appears faster with more weapons and game play options. Fans are clamoring to get their hands on the first RE game for PS3 and Xbox 360. (March 13th)

Killzone 2 (PS3) – It’s been almost four years since we saw that initial Killzone 2 intro trailer. There was debate over whether the footage was in-game or CGI but regardless the game will have to live up to a whole bunch of hype. The gameplay footage released has been impressive thus far, but we still won’t know until we get our hands on it. (February 27th)

Street Fighter IV (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) – I was able to play the arcade version of Street Fighter IV at E3 last year and if it’s any indication of what the console version will be, it’ll be one of the best games of the year. The game retains the classic 2-D gameplay but with a twist of color, animation, and visual effect, makes it the best looking Street Fighter game yet. (February 17th)

Skate 2 (PS3, Xbox 360) – In 2007, EA’s Skate basically dethroned the Tony Hawk franchise as king of skateboarding games. With an excellent gameplay style using the analog sticks and a fun fictional city to skate in, the Skate franchise was a force to be reckoned with. In Skate 2, they’re looking to up the ante by adding more moves, more areas, and more gameplay options. Meat mode anyone? (January 21st)

Afro Samurai (Xbox 360, PS3) – The animated series on Spike TV was a success and other than a full-length movie, the next logical step would be a video game. The game is your basic hack-n-slash brawler but voiced by Samuel Jackson and Ron Perlman with the score produced by The RZA (of Wu-Tang Clan). The game has the art, action and story of the series so you can’t go wrong with this one. (January 27th)

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) – The original F.E.A.R. dropped back in 2006 for Xbox 360 and 2007 for PS3 and was lauded for its story and freaky elements. F.E.A.R. 2 is bringing all that back and then some with bigger weapons, scarier ghosts, and a wider environment. (February 10th)

The Godfather 2 (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) – It’s based on the film, but once again you don’t get to play as any of the Corleone family members. That’s fine because the first game was still fun. This time, however, your character went from a soldier to a Don and controls certain parts of New York, Miami, and Cuba. Yup, they’re going all out on this one. (February 10th)

Halo Wars (Xbox 360) – The game takes place 20 years before the original Halo and no, Master Chief isn’t in it. Halo Wars is actually a real-time strategy game, not a first person shooter like the original Halo series, where you control units on a battlefield. It’s still within the Halo universe with the Covenant going after a mysterious relic, giving you the challenge of stopping them. (March 3rd)
