It almost seems like every year gets even better for gaming, and 2011 is no exception, just before the fall landslide of blockbuster games take a look at the best of the best so far.
this list is missing a certain PS3 exclusive platformer...
yea, no sack boy = shoddy list.
and its missing a certain 360 exclusive (that just came out)
hmmm i wonder what game you could be talking about...
Yeah that was a fun platformer... Not enough Resistance 3 on this list too.
LittleBigPlanet 2 is certainly my GOTY but it's a platform for games now, not just a platformer. It's one of my favorite PS3 games. This list is lame for not including it.
I'm glad they included Bulletstorm. Very good game... mindless fun. As for the list, I agree with the top 3.
To me it was an average game.
BulletStorm, LA noir, were bad games.
I know a lot of people are going to disagree, but personally, Bulletstorm has clearly been my highlight of the year so far.
Its not my highlight, but it was a good game. I liked it.
Agree, its campaign is better than Gears 3 Campaign in my opinion...
Missing xenoblade and lbp2.
He might not have been given the chance to play Xenoblade yet, since it hasn't been shipped to the states.
bulletstorm lol made the list? what a joke....sorry last time i will read slimgamer again
Dammit people, buy Shadows of the DAMNED! Poor sales on such games are why we can't have nice things.
Yeah people BUY AND SUPPORT SHADOWS OF THE DAMNED! didn't you like Resident Evil 4? if yes, go and buy this! don't tell me that controls are bad, because they aren't..other thing - it's freaking awesome in a freakin' way! story is great, boses are great, jokes = it's individual question, but you don't buy/do buy game for it's jokes (I personally liked jokes).. and most important GREAT GAMEPLAY!!! support it, so we could get different variable games and experimental games with awesome stuff...didn't you get bored from stuff that constantly is being released, just in a new skin? devs won't get support from thing like this and will be afraid to release quirky and awesome games.. (can't wait for Lollipop Chainsaw).. ...and this list missing Child of Eden, Mortal Kombat,
I beat SOTD yesterday, even though i bought it day one (too many games). It is a awesome action game, tons of gore, horror style is nice, it funny as hell too.

Couldn't agree with you guys more. There's a lot of people angry that I put Shadows of the Damned on here, but I really enjoyed it.
I forget Dead Space 2 came out this year lol
I don't get it. LittleBigPlanet 2 received 9's and 9.5's across the board yet I don't think I've seen it on one top ten list this year. Definitely a top 3 game for me this year so far.
Bulletstorm made the list over LittleBigPlanet 2? Seriously? ugh
What about CRYSIS 2 or Dead Island? Seriously, CRYSIS 2 is one of the best fps ive ever played! Better than Halo, KZ and Resistance if you ask me. Shadows of the Damned wasnt very good, very repetitive levels and gunplay felt too out dated. Am enjoying Deus Ex and L.A. Noire though. Bulletstorm did kick ass too!
Gears of war 3 really should be on that list. Epic really did learn from their mistakes they made in Gears 2. The same can be said for R3. Both are great games, I'm glad Dead Island wasn't on that list, that was a waste of $60 for me. While the game is fun for the first couple of hours and gets to repetitive for the rest of the game.
Havent tried Gears3 yet, will pick that one up when it drops in price. I really do think Dead Island is one of the best zombie survival games out today. The game is massive, you can explore and go anywhere on that frikin island. I guess it can get a little repetitive swinging a machete or bat at zombies all day. The upgrades and mods to your weapons do give it some longevity though. I mean, what game doesnt get old these days? Even Gears gets old after awhile. Shooting wave after wave of locusts! Most games these days are all about shooting it seems. Im waiting for something different to come out!
At the beginning of the article I said that the reason Gears 3 wasn't on the list was because I hadn't played it at all. I wrote this article before Gears 3 came out, and I barely had time to write that sentence in. So that's why Gears of War 3 is missing.
i have a game street cricket 2011 i have purchase a laptop with windows 7 i have this game installe in windows xp i want to transfer this game to my new laptop with windows 7 but i had lost the setup cd of the game so can you help me please my windows xp is 32bit and windows 7 is 64 bit pls help me http://www.mayanagriescort....
list is kinda shitty i mean no kz3, lbp2 i must admit i loved dead space 2 and infamous2 bulletstorm is garbage imo and didn play the rest so i guess i cnt really elaborate
ewww shadow of the damned? that game sucked, i couldnt even finish it, repetitive missions, annoying characters, was amazed he was voiced by steven blum tho. i almost never send back games without beating them, that game just had to go.
hmmm...idk about this list. *skeptical stare* http://images.cheezburger.c...
Hey everyone, I'm the author of the article actually. I'm glad to see that this is stirring up some debate about so many great games this year. I will say though, remember this is an opinion article and this is merely my opinion for the year. Not a reflection on the quality of all of the great other games. In reference to LittleBigPlanet 2, I have not had the opportunity to play it as of yet, I do apologize, because clearly there is a lot of love for it on here. I personally really liked Bulletstorm, but I see a lot of you didn't. Thanks for the feedback everyone! Believe me it was incredibly hard to make this list up, there was just so many great games including Crysis 2 and Killzone 3 and various others that were just so good, it really was a hard choice to make.
