Although 2009 is loaded with plenty of high-profile titles, Resident Evil 5 still sits near the top of the list. This is guaranteed to be a massive crowd-pleaser, and if you haven't already had the chance, it's time to download the demo that currently sits on the PlayStation Store. It may be disappointing to learn that you still can't move and shoot at the same time, but the purists will appreciate the more traditional control scheme. After all, the line between action and survival/horror is already a little blurred; shouldn't we try to maintain some semblance of what made the latter genre so great...?
