My top 10 Most Anticipated Games of 2011

10. Homefront
Intrigued by the premise and it looks like it could make for some cool set pieces. I have a nasty feeling its going to tank, though.
9. Rage (assumption of 11)
I like the premise quite a bit and anything even vaguely open world (particularly first-person open world) is damn sweet.
8. Dragon Age 2
I've only played about three hours of DA:O (getting Ultimate Edition for Christmas, though!), but I've super enjoyed what I've seen so far. DA2 looks like its taking it in a very different direction and I'm very intrigued. 
7. Mass Effect 3
The Earth setting is going to be awesome, but I need to beat 1 and 2 first.
6. Brink
Seriously digging the art style and the fluidity of  movement.
4. Diablo III (assumption of 11)  
I do love me some action role playing games. Diablo III looks fantastic thus far and I'll pick it up day one, provided I have my new computer by then
5. . LA Noire
Rockstar is one of the best developers in the field. I'm hoping for very good things. Love the detective premise, too, a nice change from the criminal/bad guy norm of GTA, Red Dead and Manhunt.
3. Crysis 2
 I'm not generally a fan of shooters, but this looks AMAZING. I'm completely psyched to see CryEngine 3 on the consoles, too.
2. Batman: Arkham City
Arkham Asylum was my favorite game of 2009 and probably my second favorite game ever. Knock my socks off, Rocksteady. 
 
Wait for it...
Wait for it...
 
1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
It's going to get delayed. I know that, and I accept that. But Oblivion was a completely life changing experience for me, the game that triggered my gaming career. Skyrim is going to be amazing and mindblowing and I will lose another 300 hours of my life. But it will be WORTH IT.
