2011 has been a great year so far with a number of titles that are better than half of my top ten from last year. With E3 starting today I wanted to go over what I played the first half of the year while we all get excited about the stuff we are going to be playing in the latter half. So far we have had some great sequels but the year has been really short on great original titles, with the exception of LA Noire. My hope for the second half of the year is to get something new and creative. Not that I mind a great sequel, but it’s nice to see a great new IP once and a while. So here it is, my top 7 of the first half of 2011.
