First things first, congrats on reaching your Childs Play goal yet again, Cheapy and the many CAGS. [edit: words be ganked]
On the DS and PSP mentions... part of me wants to agree with you. I mean DS and PSP were not exactly on par with the bigger consoles, but that doesn't mean they sucked. 2009 had some great titles for both systems. It's just that you HAVE to be paying attention when they drop and with such a great year on the bigger consoles, we really had no chance to check in on the little guys.
And finally, about MAG. I can see why a lot of people hate it. But for me, it's drastically different. This is a PC ass game. Everything about it harkens to titles like Battlefield. It's not going after the MW2 crowd because, quite simply, COD has been a console centric franchise after the second one. MAG's biggest problem, as I see it, is being a PC game put on a console. Console shooters have been holding our hands for so long, a shooter that just kicks you out of a plane with a rifle, a dream, and a mission objective of "kick some ass, soldier" seems generic and plain. But considering the last game we've seen of this type has been Battlefield 2, it's long overdue.
But it's not for everyone. No doubt about that.
