Top 5 Games of 2k11

So I hear top ten lists are pretty popular. Too bad I'm fucking lazy.

Here are my TOP FIVE GAMES OF TWOTHOUSANDELEVEN!

1. Bastion

Best Soundtack of the year, best atmosphere of the year and best goddamn fast paced hack'n'slash of the year. I love how every weapon is viable, I love how the narrator works, and I love how good it looks and feels. Game of the goddamned year.

2. Saints Row: The Third

This is the most fun I've had with a game in YEARS. I have nothing bad to say about this, you should all play Saints Row.

3. Dark Souls

This game was made for me. I can see how people won't understand the appeal, but this game knows EXACTLY what I want out of this kind of genre and I wish I had an Ps3 to play it's predeccessor.

4. Jamestown

I thought I had lost it, I thought I couldn't enjoy a bullet hell shooter again. Then Jamestown came along, with it's incredible music, gorgeous design and insane story. This is a indie ass game with some great production. Even though I only got like less than 5h out of it, they felt like 5 very well spent hours. I can't recommend this enough. Especially to people who usually don't enjoy the genre.

5. Mortal Kombat

Best fighting game evah! It was a close call between this and SSFIV:AE (which technically is "better"), but this game has provided way more stupid fun than Street Fighter ever could, and as we all know: Stupid fun is better than serious fun. It's one of the universe's genreal rules.

Before ending this blog, I would like to make a call out for my actual most played game of 2011. League of Legends Even though this didn't come out this year, 2011 still has been a very big year for the game. With big addition like Dominion, the game is better than ever. Give this a try, it's free! Though my bank account says otherwise.

I'm guessing El Shaddai is number six. (I must spread the word. Also, I can't really comment on any of these games, as I haven't played them.)

@Video_Game_King: I replied to you like an hour ago saying I wanted to play El Shaddai but haven't yet.

I'll be sure to make an in depth analysis and dedicate a thousand words to the game when I've played it. FOR MY KING.

EDIT: Also, I forgot The Witcher 2 was an 2011 release. I'll give it the honorary spot of # on my list, since it deserves a spot, but I don't feel like changing stuff.

Bought Jamestown through the Humble Bundle last week and I'm so into it. Not only do I love bullet-hell shooters but the quality of the soundtrack is off the charts, so happy it was included in the deal so I can listen to it whenever I want to.

@Video_Game_King: Good for you? I still won't place it on a top list without having played it myself.

@Vexxan: Yeah, that game is so good. I want a sequel, or at least more content released. :P

Have you tried a gauntlet yet? I just kept dying so much on the last level.... A goal for next year I guess.

@TobbRobb: I am struggling with the gauntlet on Divine difficulty at the moment, I probably have my hands full with this for a while :)

@Vexxan: Yeah it was Divine I couldn't finish... Dammit, I'm gonna replay it now.
