GOTY 2011

I thought 2011 was a great year for games, its the first year I've had to sit down and really think about what my top 10 games of the year are, first of all I'd like to say some honorary mentions:

  • Pokemon: Black and White: I knew this wouldn't be one of my top 10 games as it's just a Pokemon game, but when I thought about it, I really liked this game. The story was interesting and how they flipped the ending was cool. Unfortunately what ruined it for me was that my DS would not connect to the Internet so I couldn't do any of the online trading/battling which is what caused me to put 100+ hours into Pokemon: Pearl a few years ago.
  • Frozen Synapse: I thought this was a great turn based strategy game, I don't think I've ever played anything quite like it before. Unfortunately I fizzled out on it quite quick, and never really payed attention to the story so I can't say it's one of the best games I've played this year.
  • Jamestown: I love Jamestown, you don't know how close it was to getting on this list. I love the graphics, the story, the music, the content, the challenge rooms, the unlockables. There's so much to this game, but I think in the end there's only 5 or 6 levels in the game and I couldn't play this for hours on end.
