GOTY 2011

You know, because why not? Websites love lists. At least they love putting ads between the lists that make me wait a certain handful of seconds. So here's my rushed best of 2011-because-I-ought-to-make-the-deadline-to-submit-this-list list of my favourite games of the year. Granted, my top ten has a lot of populist, fan-favorite games, but there's also a handful of less well-known titles that probably deserve some kind of recognition that won't get it because everyone is too busy tugging on dragon tails in Skyrim. Alas.

Two notes. One is that I never got to play Uncharted 3, Dead Space 2, The Witcher 2, The Old Republic or any modern military shooter released this year. Two, this list is a fucking lie because my real game of the year is Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, a game that I think is relatively popular on this website. Because as good as the Skyrims and Arkham Citys and The Thirds of the world are, the 130 hours I gave Teddie, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji and whatshisname is more than all of those combined. Anyways...
