Game Of The Year Stuff 2011 - Wierd early categories.

Alright, GOTY stuff is as good a reason as any to try and get back to writing in this here blog and I thought about doing the GOTY stuff across all of December this year, starting with small, wierd categories that I kinda want to get in there without affecting the true end of the year stuff. So hey, its 2 AM going to Saturday and I got off work a couple of hours ago. So why not try starting this thing off instead of going to bed.

I just now went over all the tracking services I have to try and single out every game I played this year. It turns out I played alot more games than I thought in 2011. Iäve probably missed some but so far I count 38 uniques games over PC,PS3 and 360 not counting some of my mainstays since last year and not counting picking up and playing games that wasn't actually released this year.

So narrowing this down into some categories will be just as much of a headache and just as much fun as every year. I'm not sure how to really put this together yet so I'll just somehow start this off by throwing some stuff in to this blogpost. I hope that these small early things will be pretty self explanatory and I will probably not explain the categories or the nominees here.

If you feel like something obvious is missing its probably because I didn't play it ( Lists like thes always comes down to what you actually played when you don't do it for a living) or because I disagree with you but feel free to chime in on the categories and i'll see you in part 2 of these random categories in a couple of days or so.

Typo edition! Thats what I get for posting at 3AM i suppose. And tools are completely bugging out when trying to edit the post.

Hopefully I can put some more time into these the more of them I make.
