instead started playing 2009: The Game, which is, in fact, a game of the year 2009. We apologize for the misleading headline.
It's more or less an "avoid-these-things-lest-you-die" game flash game which takes quick, topical jabs at the year's low points. However, it's a great reminder of some of the ridiculous shenanigans we had to put up with this year. Like, remember Swine Flu? Hoo boy.
