The Top Ten

1
Portal 2
Portal 2 is the turning point for game innovation. You can actually feel all the hard effort put into it. It's seamless. The characters, dynamic, interesting, original. Gameplay, clean, precise, entertaining. The story is thought-provoking, well-established, and easy to immerse yourself into. The ending, just breath-taking, really. The cerebral gameplay is also highly beneficial. It's puzzle-solving, what's not cerebral about it? The comedy is effective (albeit a bit edgy), bringing life into the intentionally claustrophobic atmosphere. You'll love this game, without a doubt. Play it for yourself and you'll know.
My favorite game ever. Everything about it just works. From the amazing singleplayer with great locales, awesome puzzles, characters who are all likable in some way, and dialogue that will leave you in stiches, all jammed together with perfect pace and an amazing ending. The co-op is very fun with friends and you can have a a lot of fun trying to communicate and think as one. The Perpetual Testing Initiative free DLC allows community made chambers easy to download and make, ensuring that there is unlimited replayability. I cannot think of any flaws besides the fact that we'll have to wait a while for a portal 3.
Most innovative game of 2011. Best multiplayer. Most work put in. Makes you think. Fun story. Characters that feel like part of the story. And this game has infinite possibilities with the new dlc to create puzzles for people to play. Best game of 2011, hands-down.

2Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Come on, MW3? Nothing can compare to the sheer awesomeness of Skyrim.
Always puts me in a good mood

3Batman: Arkham City
I do not understand why this amazing game, which is one of the years most critically acclaimed games, below Mass Effect 2, and MW3. ME2 is a great game and one of my favourites but it was released last year, while MW3 is the very definition of half assed. This game should in my opinion at the least in the top 5.
Epically epic game, but the problem is that people can't take batman seriously because well... He's batman. Once you get past the guy with a stupid costume mentality your kicking ass, gliding across a city and dangling thugs from 10 story buildings. Isn't that something to put a smile on your face?

Best games? Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, Uncharted 3, Gears of Wars 3. Arkham City down at 12 is unbelievable. Its not only the best licensed game yet but also the one the best games ever made to date. The atmosphere of the game is remarkably unique and provides a decent batman feel.

4Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
dude I made this list before unchrated 3 was announced so yeah or uncharted 3 definitely number one I'm bif fan of uncharted series don't believe go check my other list best games of 2009-2010 and bets games of 2009 or the remake of this list bets games of 2010-2011 ok check this list again to see my other lists to prove that plus killzone 3 doesn't suck I know its doesn't have graphics as good as uncharted 3 or the game is that good get it
So much better than any other game, only reason why its not #1 is because it's a ps3 exclusive and most people have Xbox, most Xbox gamers hate ps3 just because they have Xbox, plus they didn't play it.
I made this list before uncharted 3 came out so yeah or uncharted 3 defintely number 1

5Mortal Kombat
This game put Mortal Kombat Universe on new level. The graphics is amazing, the characters are very cool
This game is 2D. 2D game play BUT 3D graphics.

Magnolia

MK9 has the best replay value out of any of the games on this list.

WAWL1234


6Battlefield 3
Graphically the best game ever made
Most played fps on PC and Xbox 360 (IGN). Epic 8 maps including 20 Premium Maps. Winner of best gun weapon selection and vehicles.

7Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Modern Warfare 3 is overall a good game but I still don't know why people dislike it so much. The campaign is good and the ending is amazing. Come on people.
Come on! Call of duty black ops was great, every year, the game series gets better graphics and more realistic gameplay. So Modern Warfare 3 will be the best of 2011.
its gonna have a sledgehammer

8Dead Space 2

I love everything about this game. Original DS game was awesome but this sequel is no less impressive. Superb Atmosphere

Magnolia


9LittleBigPlanet 2

Not having played many of the others of his list, I really thing this is an awesome game. Or, should I say, awesome games. You can do almost everything online, I played ' moon lander with my sister, witch brings me to the next point, it is a game for every one, of every age, and is fun. The single player was awesome too.. Great game, one of the best PS3 exclusives!


10The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
I've done some research, and the four most popular games of the year should be Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, and Skyward Sword in no particular order. I was never a big Zelda fan, but once a got this game, I really got into the franchise. Are there any games that could have a bigger emotional effect on me than Skyward Sword. It would be hard to beat.
This is absolutely the best game I have ever played gt it and you'll know what I mean, seriosely

The Contenders

11Killzone 3

12L.A. Noire
Another masterpiece from Rockstar

13Gears of War 3
Much like uncharted gears three is likely so far back do to being and exclusive. But the action, graphics, writing, story, and plot twists are all upgraded in gears three, and it's defenatly the best in the series and one of the 360s greatest games

14Mass Effect 2

15Total War: Shogun 2
Pure awesomeness. This game takes an already great franchise and makes it better

16Duke Nukem Forever
How is this game even able to be given a number? This makes that crappy powerpuff girls ps2 game look good. Crappy on the then, crappy now, and crappy forever.

17Amnesia: The Dark Descent

18Infamous 2

19Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

20Sonic Generations

21Metal Gear Solid Rising

Metal gear solid will always be at the top of my list. Call Of Duty can suck it!
