Top Five - Games of 2011

Pedantic Gamers: Of this generation, 2011 has got to be the undisputable best year in gaming. Even if not all the games released were what some of us expected them to be, the variety alone in killer apps is unparalleled by any other year before it. From Portal 2, to inFamous 2, to Dragon Age II, to Bastion, to L.A. Noire, to many more, the past year was gaming nirvana in every way imaginable. While 2012 is looking to be shaping up to be nearly as spectacular and we already have our sights set on some very high profile upcoming releases, let’s take a minute to talk about the best games of 2011. I figured that doing one list would not be enough to cover all the wonderful titles released last year, so we here at Pedantic Gamers came to the decision that each staff member would compose his or her own top five games of 2011. This is my list; if your favorite game didn’t make it, then keep your eyes open for the lists of the other pedantic critics.

And now, onto the list…

Infamous 2 needs to be #1 on that list.

Also... where is Uncharted 3?

My favorite games of 2011 are:

Infamous 2
Uncharted 3
Infamous: Festival of Blood

LA Noire was a huge let down for me... I thought there would be variety to the cases, but in reality it was like 1 big case.

Portal 2 got boring fast (for me)

I have zero interest in Skyrim... I've seen it played and it looks really boring and lame... plus I don't like swords and shields and arrows (to the knee... hehe).

So he isn't entitled to his own opinion?

PersonMan2535d ago

Nope. His opinion is wrong. ;-)

InFamous bores the crap out of me. Almost as bad as those terrible GTA games. Limbo and Uncharted 3 are beyond awsome though. I love L.A. Noire and Portal 2 as well. I have yet to get Skyrim but plan to at some point (I'm more of a Fallout person).

SolidGear32535d ago

Top 5 for me is easy..

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
Dragon Age II
L.A. Noire
