We are more that halfway through 2011 and the top 5 games are still yet to come!
First of all, these games HAVE NOT come out yet, how could they possibly know if they will turn out to be the best games? Second, of all, Call of Duty, seriously? And third, no Uncharted 3? No Zelda? No RAGE?
Zelda is my most anticipated game followed by Skyrim!
The Old Republic? Does that even have a release date. I thought it was pushed into 2012. My list is: SKYRIM UC3 Ico/SotC Arkham City Rage
A top 5 is impossible to come up with.
And one of the ones on the list shouldn't be there.
I never even noticed Uncharted 3 wasn't on there :O I'm shocked it isn't
They made the list too short imo, imagine if they replaced CoD with uc3, resistance 3 with rage and BF3 with Zelda, then someone else would say the exact same thing as you did but with the games that didnt make the list. I dismiss this list due to it not having DoTa2 in it. DoTa2 and Zelda are easily my most anticipated games. Uc3 will probably be a great game, but it's not my kind of game (really dont know why either)as a matter of fact i'll rather take resistance3 over Uc3 ( just my opinion dont rage, as i said the UC series are great games but somehow not my kind of game). Edit: forgot about Dark Souls, that's another game that really interests me. basically my point is they should have made this atleast a top 10 instead of top 5, i believe that would please alot more gamers no matter the order.
i agree the actual list is 1. Uncharted 3 2. Battlefield 3 3. Skyrim 4. Modern warfare 3 5. gears of war 3
You got that 3/5s right sir, the real list is this. 1. Skyrim 2. Battlefield 3 3. Dark Souls 4. Arkham City 5. Uncharted 3 Have some originality, will ya? Gears 3 can get #6 spot since I enjoyed gears 1 so much but sold my 360 since that was the only game worth playing on it. ;)
Take Dark Souls off that list and replace it Resistance 3 and maybe you'll look a bit more dignified.
This should be titled "Top 4 FPS and 1 RPG Still to Come in 2011" Dark Souls, Deus Ex, and Uncharted 3 are not FPS but are surely in many people's top 5.
Hard to condense into a Top 5, I see top-notch quality in all these games and a lot more. Happy gamer :)
For me personally: 1. Skyrim 2. Battlefield 3 3. Dark Souls 4. Uncharted 3 5. Twisted Metal
my top 5 for the rest of the year are: Deus Ex HR Rage BF3 Uncharted 3 Star Wars TOR honorable mentions: Dead Island Resistance 3 Twisted Metal Skyrim
these are the games i plan on buying day one dues ex driver(depend on reviews and demo maybe rent) dead island(may rent it depend on reviews or a demo) X-Men Destiny(most likely rent) resistance 3 rage ratchet all 4 one uncharted 3 saints row 3 batman 2 HD collections: DMC hd collection which should be announced at gamescon ico/sotc mgs hd collection god of war psp collection resident evil 4 hd I know the author asked for top 5 but these are all my games its hard for me to pick and choose the witcher 2 for xbox360 i was planning on getting but it got delayed
No Deus Ex. No UC3. Hmmmm.
Yeah, No Uncharted 3, why is that? Speaking of which, I do awaits resistance 3, but it won't necessarily be in the top 5 for me. Modern Warfare 3 I will buy just to see the story goes, but seriously, Uncharted 3 will be the top of my list.
I hope Rayman Origins is a sleeper hit, I'm excited at the idea of a full budget 2D platformer.
I agree with Skyrim and Battlefield 3. The Old Republic should also be very good, but I'm not sure if it's among the very top yet. It certainly could be. As for the rest, I was thinking more along the lines of Dark Souls, Uncharted 3, Zelda, Journey, Gears 3, and RAGE. Also the Team ICO collection if it makes it out on time. I think Uncharted 3 and Zelda are legit contenders for GOTY and would have to be in a top 5 list. I would not be at all surprised if Dark Souls steals a few GOTY awards as well. It looks to be very similar in style to Demon's Souls (trust me, I've played DS enough to know). Need I say more?
Surely skyrim is more likely to get GOTY as all of bethesdas recent games got GOTY
Skyrim was in the author's list, and it would be in my own as well.
Imagine Skyrim had Move support and played like Sports Champion's Gladiator duel. You use the left handed weapon by pressing the trigger and the right hand by not pressing the right trigger. Magic staves could be used by aiming and pressing the move button to fire, and magic could be mapped to a button (because you don't have to press anything to attack). Imagine the sales the Move and skyrim would get. *drools*
OMG i never though of this xD that would be awesome!
Haha no Twisted Metal? Huge fail. That's the #1 game still to come in 2011.
Arkham City also, among the other games people mentioned. There is loads of great games on the way, we are going to be spoilt for choice.
Yeah, I'm hung up on Dark Souls, but you're right...there are a ton of awesome, awesome games coming down the pipeline right now.
1)Dark Souls 2)Dark Souls 3)Dark Souls 4)BF3 5)Dark Souls EDIT: And oh yeah, Uncharted 3...
Took long enough for someone to mention Dark Souls! Can't fucking wait either! \m/
Uncharted 3 is not on there fail other games I want: Rage Assassin's Creed: Revelations The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
horible list and its wayy to much of um to name
no zelda: skyward sword ? no gears of war 3 ? no uncharted 3 ? no assassins creed: revelations ? no forza 4 ? no dark souls ? no halo ce remake ? no batman: arkham city ? no deus ex ? no RAGE ? the list FAILS
your list would have been even more fail cause of forza.
forza 4 is a fail? thats pathetic. you must not like the racing genre, cause forza will top it easily
you seem to have forgotten Torchlight 2, DeathSpank: Baconing and possibly Diablo 3 (one can hope)
Modern warfare ? no thank u sir
Diablo 3-pc BF3-pc Skyrim-pc Dark Souls-ps3 or 360, gotta wait to see which! Deux Ex HR-pc (maybe, i think i will buy it after a few reviews) DotA2-pc Red Orchestra 2-pc Guild Wars 2 -pc(i hope) Tera-pc Star Wars TOR-pc Batman AA-pc Gears 3-xbox360 Halo Reloaded-xbox360 Uncharted 3-ps3 Resistance 3-ps3 Cannot Freaking Wait!!!
PC all the way
Diablo 3? You do realise Activision (not Blizzard) have tainted it with real world financial implications...
No matter what Blizzard does, if they put a $120 price tag on D3 it will be huge. Sorry, but they haven't "tainted" with any financial implications. They offer a service that was, to be fair - large - in Diablo II. Obviously you have never played Diablo or Diablo II but read magazines all day and make assumptions.
what are you on about?
yeah with that list youre gonna be one broke mofo. i made a deal with my wife to only get 3 more games this year. bf3 and skyrim will eat up alot of hours. 3rd choice is up in the air. but its on like neckbone next year when there are some price drops
what happened to the last guardian?
Who approves this stuff? The article is very poorly written. Have some standards, people!
I hate sony, I sold my ps3 and the next week infamous 2 and uncharted 3 were announced.
How is that Sony's fault?
Its not I was joking...
Two of my most anticipated game of this year isn't on the list :(
There is a small chance GTAIV could appear this year, but Q1 or Q2 2012 is more likely.
I'm pretty sure u meant GTA V. And it won't be announced til E3 which means we are looking at Q4 minimum for a launch date.
why won't it be announced til E3?
For me: Uncharted 3 Resistance 3 Arkham City Skyrim Rage Battlefield 3 Gears Of War 3 Dark Souls Deus Ex This will be the first time I've ever had a backlog of brand new games waiting to be played.
The moral of this story is that there are far more than 5 highly anticipated games coming out in the next few months. If you can't think of one, you aren't really a gamer.
uncharted 3 should definately be up there.
Get rid that forza and replace it with Chase HQ..
lol lol lol! You put Resistance in there over games like Gears and Uncharted! What a joke of a list.
No Uncharted 3 WTF LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
for me its Dark Souls Gears of War 3 Forza Motorsport 4 Batman 2 Assassin's Creed Revelation
regardless of what's on this list, this Fall is going to be awesome
"The key to making a successful MMO is in the gameplay. If you get that wrong, no one will play." Pretty sure thats just any game, right?
I won't know how good all these games will be until I've played them, but from past experience and a little look at the history of their franchises, I'm guessing that these will be the 5 highest rated games of the rest of 2011: 1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 2. Gears of War 3 3. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 4. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 5. Forza Motorsport 4 Skyward Sword has to be in there because virtually every modern console Zelda game has scored a 95+ on Metacritic. Gears 3 is there because of its past two entries scoring a 94 and a 93, and the fact that the game is shaping up to be the biggest, most polished and feature-rich of the series yet. Uncharted 3 is in the list solely because of Uncharted 2. Skyrim speaks for itself. And the final spot was a tough call between Forza 4, AC: Revelations, and a couple other games, but I felt that Forza 4 has the best chance of scoring the highest. Every title in the series has scored AAA and it is the highest rated racing series of this gen. Forza 3 saw a 92 on Metacritic, higher than any AC game, Battlefield game, or even Arkham Asylum.
3/5 are fps, what a bias list lol. Heres mine: 1) Zelda 2) Uncharted/Gears tie (Ha I know I'm cheating a little) 3) Elder Scrolls 4) Forza 5) Battlefield
mediocre list imo. here is mine 1. Skyrim 2. Deus Ex 3. Rage 4. Dead Island 5. Forza 4
It need to be a top ten listcuz ther are too many good games coming for just a top five.
is elder scrolls that good? but anyway i cant wait for mw3 and bf3 both will have great campaigns and fun multiplayers seriously im tired of fanboys
- Resistance 3: Maybe, the atmosphere looks good enough. - MW3: Meh. Same old, same old. - BF3: Meh. Generic FPS with overrated graphics. - SW Old Republic: Not really into online games. - Skyrim: Now we're talking. Deus Ex HR = Win though.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!! The list looks like an fps wish list apart from skyrim.... this is how it is 1. Skyrim 2. Uncharted 3 3. Zelda 4. Dark Souls 5. XenoBlade
Skyrim Uncharted 3 Modern Warfare 3 Rage BF3/Gears 3/Resistance 3
