2011 represented a unique year for me. It was the first time I got to see in a new year with my soulmate (I also get to see out the year with her too). I mention this because I believe it’s made me a less cynical person overall, games I may have dismissed a year or two ago became some of my favourites this time around.
2011 also represents the year I fell in love with Nintendo again. Thanks to getting a new Wii and 3DS towards the end of the year, I’ve had a chance to play a load of games I’d missed out on before. I was a Nintendo fanboy as a child and teenager and it was only when the 360 came around that I abandoned that path and became a fan of what I thought were more “adult” or “mature” games. I’ve since recaptured my love for the Nintendo way of doing things. 2012 can now be the year where I embrace more of what I love – I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Now how about we take a look at my Top Ten list?
