Best of 2011
Yes ladies and gentlemen, it's that most wonderful time of year. It's time for my third annual Top 10 games of the year. I write this just as we dawn upon a new year; 2012. 2011, in many ways, produced a smattering of great games. While some sequels may have missed the mark laid down by their predecessors, the list of games I enjoyed this year is much tighter than that of 2010. It was a tough decision to figure out my game of the year. Since I have started writing game of the year lists on Giant Bomb, never has there been such a tight margin for first place than this year. But now, once and for all, the world may now know what MjHealy's top 10 games of 2011 are. Contain your excitement.
Honourable Mentions: Bastion and Driver. Bastion hit me at the wrong place at the wrong time, when I began to experience marginal returns for my games. It's is a great, well-built game but it didn't light the fire in me as in other people. Driver deserves a nod as it's great. YOLO
