Best of 2011 (written September 8, 2012)
Turns out I didn't play as many games in 2011 as I did, and I in fact played a lot of 2011 games in 2012 that would've easily made this list including Saint's Row the Third, Uncharted 3, FIFA 12 and Gears of War 3, Sonic Generations and perhaps Assassin's Creed Revelations. So I left it as a top 6, plus the 2011 2010 game of the year. Honourable mentions include El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron and Mortal Kombat. Other games I rented but didn't play much include Rayman Origins and Dark Souls.
