OXM Forum Top Games of 2011

Postby Bezza89 » 29 Dec 2011, 18:37

On the back of Decent Jams best 360 games ever and in respect to the pending 2012; I'm wondering what the best games people bought in 2011 (and that were released in 2011).

Was going to do a poll, but where's the fun in that?

Limit of five games to tear peoples hair out come final decision time.

Skyrim
Deus Ex HR
Dragon Age 2 (Yes, really, deal with it)
Halo CEA

I honestly don't have a fifth, but it'd be a toss up between GoW 3 and BF3, both have their foibles.

Mmmmm.....if this is purely for 360 games, my list is below

1. FIFA 12

2. Gears Of War 3

3. Tiger Woods PGA Tour '12: The Masters

4. F1 2011

5. Errrrrm......

I would say that only FIFA 12 has held my attention for any great length of time though.
I don't care if a game is "the same every year." So is pizza. Stop buying the bad pizza. Buy the good pizza.

I'd say for 360 only, keep it simple for people with an eye for maybe buying one of them.

Aww, someone remembered me! I'm touched!

For me I think I will have to go for:

Batman: Arkham City (best single player)
Battlefield 3 (multiplayer hero)
Deus Ex: HR (most compelling overall game)
Rayman Origins (co-op award)
Gears 3 (overall just a solid game, and Horde 2.0 is a triumph - mode of the year - often imitated, never bettered)

Portal 2 was really great but short-lived and so didn't make the list for me. Crysis 2 I desperately wanted to finish but somehow couldn't bring myself to.

In this order:

Batman: Arkham City
Dark Souls
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Saints Row: The Third
Gears of War 3

I haven't finished Dark Souls or Gears, so their placement might change. I still haven't played Skyrim, MW3, Battlefield 3 and a few other big games, either, so again things might change.

My top five in my top order
1. Batman: Arkham City ( A no brainer for me)
2. Skyrim (This was a close one im really into Skyrim now its awsome)
3. Deus Ex: Human Revolution ( Awsome I wish I could put this higher plus the CE is great)
4. Halo:CE (Any co-op partners here?)
5. Gears 3 ( A great ending and I was thrilled with the Carmines fate)

I would like to give a shout out to both Crysis games they were both high contenders to gears in my top 5 as well as BF3 multiplayer GOTY for me love it and now I can fly and finally Duke Nukem: Forever for being very laughably fun and entertaining, still got to try for a second playthrough though.

In no particular order

Skyrim
Dark Souls
Portal 2
Fight Night: Champion


I seem to be something of a negative git when i think about this years releases on the whole, a lot of the games i've bought have disappointed me and many i've enjoyed playing this year have been previous years releases i've gotten cheap... 2011 may have had the bigger names, but i think 2010 had the better games (the ridiculous specimen that is skyrim aside)!
