According to Ken Levine, 2011 offered the strongest selection of games since his own Bioshock came out four years ago.
2011 sucked for me. I did not get that many games. I am getting more games in Q1 of 2012 then all of 2011. Soul Calibur 5, Ninja Gaiden 3, Shinobido 2, Gravity Rush, Naruto UNS Generations, Devil May Cry HD, Asura's Wrath... And I think I forgot a few games in that. It is gonna be crazy. Oh, and I like Japanese games... Just in case you could not tell.
Yeah im getting most of those games you said.. PLUS twisted metal, bioshock, and a junk-load more! Its gonna be fun year!
Seems like you like your action games LordMe.
Nothing really stands out for me in2012 except twisted metal and tomb raider. But 2011 i must say was the best year for gaming for me..like 96 was for music
2011 has been my best year in recent memory, too (But I dub 2011 as year of the RPG). 2012 seems like it's gonna be a quiet one. Unless a bunch of developers no one's heard of brings out some awesome new IPs.
halo 4 nuff said
Let me guess you are 12 year old ?
no mate, it was only a little laugh. I knew the trolls would bite. I can't wait for halo but I am more looking forward to bioshock oh and I am 26 ha
I want Halo 4 and I'll be 47 when it releases. If you think one has to be 12 to enjoy Halo then you are too jaded for gaming and should quit. Maybe with your level of sophistication you should take up Chess.
More hyped for next year, lol. But Skyrim, Child of Eden, Deus Ex and Gears 3 were all fantastic.. just bought Arkham City and Rayman Origins too..
games mostly were over rated and sucked skyrim, portal 2, batman, gears, assassins creed deus ex, disgaea, radiant historia, pokemon, and more were great but still The west dropped the ball this year with generic broken games
Portal 2's narrative improved significantly. I still have minor quibbles with it that hold it back from true greatness, but it deserves to be mentioned with the best of the year.
the gameplay and level design was atrocious
I absolutely agree.Uncharted 3,Batman:Arkham City and Portal 2 are the most memorable games I played this year,all three joining my pantheon of greats.There were tons of other exceptional games like LA Noire,Bulletstorm,Gears Of War 3 etc. All in all,one of the best years of gaming I've had in my 20+ years of gaming.Can't wait for 2012,which starts with a bang with the release of Mass Effect 3.
When Levine speaks, you listen. Don't disagree with the creator of 2012s GOTY.
I liked 2009-2010 better. 2007 was hardly a blip on my radar with the only notable games being Uncharted: Drake's Forturne, BioShock, and Heavenly Sword. 2009 saw the release of Killzone 2, inFamous, Uncharted 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, BlazBlue, Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Demon Souls, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, Bayonetta, Assassin's Creed II, Left 4 Dead 2, and Dragon Age: Origins. I mean, 2011 is a helluva lot better than 2006 and 2007, maybe even 2008, but 2010? Let alone 2009.
2011 was the year of unfinished games. Battlefield 3 and Red Orchestra 2 were both released while they were in beta. They are both still in beta...
