Best Game of 2011
« on: November 26, 2011, 01:00:11 AM »
So, we've seen the likes of;

Skyrim
Modern Warfare 3
Battlefield 3
FIFA 12
Portal 2
Batman: Arkham City
Gears of War 3
Killzone 3

The list goes on...

What do you think was the best game released this year and why?

For me: has to be Battlefield 3, hands down.
The new engine, brilliant hit detection, graphics, destructible environments, weapons, vehicles & game modes make this my well deserved game of 2011.

Thoroughly enjoying Skyrim, what can I say if it's fantasy then I'm in. If it's got Dragons then waaaayhey! I am utterly useless at FPS games, so this and F1 2011 are the games I've most enjoyed in 2011.

  • Terraria - 259.3 Hours played  :o 'nough said :)
  • Portal 2 - Love puzzle games and as puzzle games go this is the best this year!
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Loved the story and game play.
  • Serious Sam 3:BFE - a return to the classic FPS of yesteryear! no auto regen health and wave after wave of enemies! + who doesn't like ripping out Naar eye balls and throwing them at enemies ;D only reason why this is not higher in the list it does have a few bugs and graphics could have been better.
  • Sonic Generations - er BEST Sonic game to come out in over 10 years!

I would have also gone for BF3 apart from the bad hit detection  :P, no private servers (360) and the god damm awful unlocking system for the guns/scopes (MW3 ??) .....  and don't even get me started on the fecking bush wookies  ;D

Fix some of those issues and maybe GOTY, but if i had t choose 1 from that list today it would have t b GoW3 hands down .... DA HORDE !!!

I can't think of any good games that came out this year, if I had to choose one, it would probably be Serious Sam 3, I've never played it and I'm not pretending to be a fan of Serious Sam, but I have to hand it to Croteam, they have, in some respects, got the right idea, even though I feel they did consolize it a bit too much in places.

Man, that was a hard post to make, I have to be more careful with how I express my opinions these days I suppose.

I sincerely hope Scotty that if you were to discuss your musical taste to those around you it would be within the appropriate thread. ;) Also, in order for this thread to stay on topic I would have to agree with HighTreason last post in relation to Serious Sam 3, the game itself feels like a console port as it displays a number of characteristics in-which indicate that of something not intended or purposely designed for (i.e. the PC). For example, the graphics are something you would expect from 2006 and are less on par with that of Croteams HD re-releases of Serious Sam HD TFE and TSE, this wouldn't have been so much of a problem if the game had run smoothly because of this but the sad fact it doesn't, my machine with the hardware specification it has only manages to only reach 30 frames per second on average which I find unacceptable. Although as a redeeming factor this game does stay in close relation to those of most classical first person shooter's, no where in this game I might add would you expect it to stray away from the formula in-which made Serious Sam such a awesome series to begin with.

Portal 2 ;D fun-est game iv played for years! well enjoyed
MW3 Massive disapointment for me! mw1 and 2 miles better o and i love black ops, better perks ect. i think the novelty has well worn off of cod. same crap different name.
dead island dead island had quality graphics but was the same all the way threw!
nfs runMassive disappointment as usual nfs has gone so down hill since underground!
BF3 i used to love battlefield 1942! online on pc but since then its again gone down hill for me.

thats all i have to say

I loved Portal 2 mostly due to the characters! "The bean counters say I can't fire a man for being blind... Did it anyway Braille displays are expensive!" - Cave Johnson :D
