TIME Magazine's Top 10 Video Games of 2011
Skyrim at 7, this is going to make trouble. Seriously though how can any one person rank these games? There are so many of them to play.
A person ranks them by their opinion
Opinion doesn't make it right. You have to have a legit reason and it must be justified.
Of course it makes it right, it's their opinion. It's no less right than your opinion. And I'm sure the reason for their list is what they personally found the most enjoyable, and that's justification enough. But they do make 'legit' reasons anyway so I'm not sure what your point is.
I dont think the list is in any particular order. I get the impression it's just a compilation the top 10 video games of 2011- like the title says. Good list anyway. A little on every platform.
is there a NEW contra coming 2 ps3??? in 2012
I didn't really get the impression that these were in order. Maybe it's because they went from 1-10. If they were in order they traditionally would save the best for last. Anyway before reading this list I was thinking "what the hell kind of crap list is Time going to put together here", but it turned out not so bad. my top ten (no order): Dead Space 2 Portal 2 Batman AC Skyrim Dark Souls Zelda Xenoblade Witcher 2 Uncharted 3 Super Mario Land 3D
Dam that was a very impressive list! Not in any order but just listing 10 great games and I've played all those games except for Zelda but i plan on running Zelda through my Wii emulator here shortly once i can find a used disc for cheap.
this is a pretty good list :D
Skyward Sword is the best Wii game this year. I don't think it belongs on this list though.
Uncharted 3 is the best PS3 game this year, it doesn't belong on the list /s Your logic doesn't make sense
My logic is that it isn't in my top ten for the year. It has nothing to do with Wii vs. PS3 vs. 360. I just don't think it belongs in the top ten. Are you dumb?
Skyward is a masterpiece and one of the best games this gen imo, every bit of it deserves a place on a top ten list.
I don't know. I felt that it was a step in the right direction for the series. However, it took old mechanics from other games and didn't quite do them justice. I'm sitting here, playing White Knight Chronicles. You can't tell me Skyward Sword is better than this game. It's just...not.
Honestly not bad. I wanna put Skyrim higher, but definitely better than when they gave Alan Wake GotY.
Their description gave a perfectly good reason for choosing that title. Alan Wake's a quality title anyway.
I'd pick Alan Wake above Skyrim and I'm both a PS3 and Bethesda fanboy.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Alan Wake. But better then Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect 2? I don't think so.
That's entirely subjective though. It's the same as someone finding arcade-priced games to be GOTY material.
Never played ME2 so I can't comment. I enjoyed both RDR & Alan Wake equally. Tbh, i'm not sure which one I found to be the better of the two.
pretty good list, and would agree with about 80% of it. Would have put Gears of war 3 and Infamous 2 on my personal list though
They usually have horrible choices in games, so I'm just gonna pass on giving them the hit.
Dark Souls is on this list, I'm ok with this list.
Hahaha I was thinking the same thing; I figured the list would be mostly predictable big name games, most of which of course are very good and well deserving of a spot... but if Dark Souls wasn't in there it would have completely invalidated it.
And Bastion. God, that was such a good game.
Modern warfare 3 isn't in the list? Angry fanboys coming in 3, 2, 1....... But yeah the list wasnt a ranking it was just a top 10 games list.
I'm a huge modern warfare fan and I agree with this list a lot. Modern Warfare 3 is good, don't get me wrong, and it's tons of fun, but compared to EVERYTHING else that came out this year, it doesn't stack up. I mean, Holy Hell was this a good year for gaming, so many quality titles, I can't eve begin...and 2012 is right around the corner =D
Dark Souls, a rewarding game? what a joke. when you find out what happens at the end. YOU JUST WANNA THROW THE CONTROLLER AT THE TV. ending is just bad.
I agree the ending was a letdown, but it was still a rewarding accomplishment through and through.. not a game you play for cutscenes and grandoise storyline.
but they should have made a satisfying one. like come on, Demons SOuls' endings are more satisfying than Dark Souls. but they were still mediocre. This is my only complaint about the game. and it would be really great if we can see the effects on which ever side we choose. for example, we see what happens to Tity monster (Princess) after choosing the evil ending. does she become a slave of mine (not being sexist lol) or is she gonna commit suicide cuz i betrayed her. those are satisfying endings
My Top 10 of 2011 Catherine Uncharted 3 Deus Ex: Human Revolution L.A. Noire Portal 2 Dragon Age II Rage Resistance 3 Killzone 3 Bulletstorm Duke Nukem Forever
I count 11.
Minecraft is good but not that great
I can't wait until it comes to the Xbox 360 early next year.
Minecraft #1 . Lol I stopped reading the list right there.
Just give it a shot, I was skeptical at 1st but if your a creative person, and If we try we all are, Minecraft is a blast. Try the create mode for free on the site. :]
Gotta give them credit for not putting MW3 in the list.
I think they showed real professionalism by not just throwing that crap game on the list. Sure it's fun, people love it, and it sales but quality and innovation wise it just doesn't stack up to the list they made.
Gears of War 3 should have been there.
Some getting insulted by the opinion of someone else and trying to find absolute objective reasons in making a mostly subjective rank, typical
