GOTY 2011

Here is my list of the Top 10 games of 2011.

List items

  • This was the most fun I have had playing a video game in a very long time. For that reason and all of the insanity that happens in the game itself during the story, this is my number one game of the year.

  • What happens when the company that made the best superhero game ever creates a sequel that is better than the original in every way? You get this game.

  • An amazing campaign, great multiplayer and awesome co-op play make this game a must play for anyone.

  • When I heard that Avalanche, the people behind the Just Cause series, made this game, I knew I had to play it and I fell in love with it's crazy 80s action movie sensibilities. Plus, the air strike character is the only way to play this game.

  • Tower Defense games are something I like to play but when you have a company that adds in the ability to actually use an independent unit to fight alongside your turrets and to do it with four people, you have a formula for success. Also Brad Muir is a badass.

  • Even though I haven't finished this game yet, I have played enough of it to realize it is one of the top 10 games of the year. The combat is so fluid and the story is amazing as well. Supergiant Games hit a home run with their first game and I can't wait to see what they have coming up next.

  • While I'm ready for a brand new AC without Ezio, this game is an excellent send off for him and Altair. I can't wait to see what Assassin's Creed 3 has in store for us.

  • Even though I haven't played any of the single player, the multiplayer is just so darn fun that I can't help but put it on my list. I really suck at flying anything but that doesn't make it any less fun when I get it flying for a couple seconds before I have to bail or I run into the ground.

  • While the ending of the game was a little weird, I am really glad that I played and finished this game. The journey to the end is awesome and the places the story goes should not be missed by anyone even if the head of Bondi was a jerk.
