Best of 2011
I've spent more money on games this year (though much of it spent on older games), it's been a pretty good year though probably most of my time has been spent playing older games. Sadly several of the top game nominees I've not played this year the new Zelda, Gears of War 3, and Batman Arkham City. It's quite possible they would have made my list if I had played them.
Unlike, everyone else I guess or at least it seems, I have played/own Skyrim and I just haven't been able to get into it. As soon as the dragon shows itself and the game really starts it totally loses me. The controls feel all kinds of clunky to me. I feel like I'm always fighting to move/attack the ways I want causing me to lose any sense of immersion. I really want to love this game as many do, but I've yet to figure out how to do so. Perhaps if I can force myself to play it longer things will click. That's why it's missing from my list, man I'd love to hear that I'm not the only one that feels this way. I was convinced I'd love this game as I loved Fallout 3, and even had more fun in Oblivion than I've had so far in Skyrim.
