Thumbs up Best Games of 2011.... So Far

This year, has seen many good games and well....many bad games.
This summer so far, my favorite games are:

L.A.Noire 10/10 Great game, Great story and really cool graphics/physics.

F3AR 9/10 The DLC (Bought the game new) F**KING RUN is an ABSOLUTE Blast to play, Good story.

Homefront 8/10 I love the MP, I love ability to buy upgrades on the fly, different classes for the different play styles...So fun.

Toy Soldiers Cold War 8/10........FREAKING FUN!!!

Fruit Ninja Kinect...8/10..... You are a NINJA... What more could you ask for?

Bastion 8/10.... On the fly narration...ingenious.

From Dust 8/10..... You play a god, of some sort, you get to manipulate the world with the pull of a trigger...

and last but not least....

Brink...7.5/10 I know a lot of people had higher expectations for this game, wanting it to be another Fallout/Borderlands..well it's not, it's it's own game. I'm glad to see developers and publishers to worried to steer away from the everyday cookie cutter mold that everyone seems to have on FPS' and make their own twisted yet fun approach on the FPS... Single player may not be to much fun, but playing with friends is 5-6 hours of goodness....

Dead Space 2: 9/10, the missing 1 is for the "meh" inclusion of an MP mode, that while interesting, was wholly unnecessary. Other than that I absolutely loved every minute of this game. January release, great way to start the year.

Dragon Age 2: 7.5/10. Loved the story, loved the action, didn't love the repeating scenery.

Beyond Good & Evil HD: 8/10. I am sad to say I missed out on this game when I had the original xbox. Glad to have that mistake rectified. Jade (aka Yade to certain AI programs) = kick-ass.

Portal 2: 10/10
It's Valve, it's Portal.

I know what you mean, I had real hope for both Brink and Homefront, but I felt pretty disappointed when they actually came out. rink just was nit ready for release and they did alot of damage to the community by releasing it in the state it was in.

You know what, I totally forgot about Portal 2... How much of a dumbass do I feel right about now... =P

Such a great game.


As for Dragon Age II, I never finished the first one.
I plan on giving II a try, as soon as I find time to play through the first one.

Dead Space 2, I tried the first one, I just couldn't get into it. I tried on several occasions but to no avail, I really wanted to like it.

BGE, I tried the demo on XBL.. Didn't do anything for me. Maybe, ONLY MAYBE, if they ever make part 2 for the 360 i'll give it a try.

See I really like Homefront and Brink, I thought both are really good games. Granted, Brink had NO story what so-ever, but, it was a nice change in pace from your normal FPS.

You know, I like the MP on Homefront better than I do COD, not knocking COD by any means, but I feel the MP is a little more realistic in Homefront than COD. Cod seems to be a little arcade-ish for me... But that don't mean i'm not spending almost every waking hour owning noob's in MP

9/10 to F3AR? Really? I liked the story, but me and my friend went through on commando in less than 7 hours. Really disapointed.

Man I love the Game Mode, F**KING RUN... that is a blast... The story was short, but the different game modes is what makes it fun as hell to play... I guess different strokes for different folks... =)

Hmmm...

I think my top game (so far) for 2011 is:

Fear 3. Lots of fun, really enjoy playing it. One of the reasons I put it at the top of my list is because I wasn't expecting that much from it. But there was a sale on it for $39.99 and I grabbed it and have loved it since.

Portal 2. Another game I wasn't sure about but took a leap of faith and had a blast. Puzzles are fun, but the Co-Op mode was the deal clincher for me.

Bulletstorm - A completely under appreciated game in my opinion. I really really enjoyed this one.

Brink - I know lots of people hate on this game, but I really enjoyed it. I like the parkour aspects and all that goes along with it. Wish there was a little better story... but I enjoyed it none-the-less.

L.A. Noire. I like it but don't love it.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention Pinball FX2. What a blast and it's a great change of pace.

So far Portal 2 is in a league of its own with every other game released playing in a lower division. LA Noire is probably the second best game released so far and it is not even close to the same level as Portal 2.

It's too hard to decide between these four:
Dead space 2: 9/10 If you play it on zealot first playthrough it's tough but fun.
Crysis 2 9/10: Enjoyed the multiplayer and the campaign on supersoldier
Portal 2 9/10: Only rented it for 2 weeks wish I bought it but I completed it and thought it was really good fun
L.A Noire 9/10: Loved playing as a detective, thought it was unique and one the best 1000G I've had.

MAN.... Totally forgot about Crysis 2..... That was a good game.
To many games to remember.

Portal 2 was just plain fun...And even I didn't played it a second time, I just loved Wheatley and of course GlaDOS. So I have to give it a 9,5/10 with a half point missing because it suffers the source plague (long loading screens)

Second place goes to: Crysis 2! The story was kind of lame...I mean they could have done a lot out of it. And it is really annoying, that the german voice acting in game made by a german company is worse than the english...At least for me it's annoying...But the atmosphere was really good, the soundtrack from Hans Zimmer (woohoo) and the whole supersoldier concept felt really great. So I give it a 8,5/10.

It's sad Deus Ex is not out here...yet

Portal 2
Voice acting,humor,story, co-op...all perfect 10/10

La Noire
Strong characters, Story and the City were awesome. I was kinda disappointed of homicide desk because cases were all too similar. Lot of collectables <3
9/10

So far, I would have to say Bastion and Marvel vs Capcom 3. I think Bastion has become my favorite XBLA game ever. I also really enjoyed playing Marvel vs Capcom 3 and can't not wait for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3!

Post Top 3 releases of the year

Crysis 2 8.5- great graphics ok story mind blowing gameplay (single player) multiplayer is slightly tolling on your internet connection but once you get a good lobby it can be a really fun fast paced shooter.

Portal 2 8.0- not a big fan of puzzlers but boy was co op fun!

Homefront 8.0- I was disappointed that singleplayer did not turn out like they were saying it was you know some "epic" story etc. etc. but I must say multiplayer is the shizzzzzzzzzzz
