GP Editor, Sean Dimagiba writes, "2011 has been a fantastic year for gaming. There have been some very distinct ups and downs, but in the end it's been a blast. Some titles have soared above greatness while some just didn't make the mark. In all of this gaming goodness, we have to remember what games we appreciated the most. And by this, I don't mean the best game of the year or some other category, but games that meant something special to us or let us feel good to be gamers.
Everyone has different tastes, beliefs, and expectations so if you were to ask every gamer which games they really enjoyed this year, you would possibly get back every game made in 2011! So, to start things off, here's five of the many games that I truly appreciated this year in no particular order."
