|Shyandquietguy||Thrash0, how is it possible that you can make even the most gimmicky game sound even more boring than it actually is? I've never played Dead Space 2 but I heard it's not very exciting and lays itself flat. Aside from not being able to afford anything above ten bucks.|

Deus Ex Yellow Edition, Portal 2, Skyrim.
Those were the only 2011 games I played.

|Emu||Dark Souls. Even though I only played it this year.|

I never played that viagra game the spambot mentioned.
Though if I did and I played it for more than 4 hours I would have to consult my physician

i feel like a fag for saying it, but skyrim's probably the most fun in gaming i've had this year. THERE GOES ALL MY HIPSTER CRED
then again i didn't get to play a lot of games i wanted to because i've been so strapped for time since september (when, by mutual implied agreement, the entire industry releases their games).

I didn't get into Demon Souls that much, it felt too "WoW-y" to me, but Dark Souls looks really killer. Like The Dark Knight of Ghosts and Goblins.
I'm such a stickler for playing games in order though :[
Not so much for the story, I just like seeing the franchise evolve.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Skyrim.
Honorable mentions go to Saints Row 3 (not as good as the second one, but still pretty fun) and Duke Nukem Forever. Yes, I loved it. Fuck you.

|Esuohlim||I played about three minutes of Pokemon Black, so I guess that one wins by default|

Also, now that I thought more about it, I also really enjoyed Alice: Madness Returns this year.

Dark Souls. The end.
Shadows of the Damned - Although a bit too short, I enjoyed the game from beginning to end. It really felt like a sum of it's parts, the obvious Rez Evil (4 and up) gun play (with movement!) mixed with a little bit of a Killer 7 vibe was very enjoyable.
Sonic Generations - Sega finally heard what fans have been asking for, for over a decade. Very pretty, very fast gameplay and a nice helping of nostalgia. Also, bonus for making the modern Sonic stages actually fun and not frustrating, glitchy nightmares.
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection - This kind of doesn't count, but I'm gonna add it anyway. Seriously, three Metal Gear games (technically 6) on one disc? Fuck and yes.

|King Hadas||When I saw this thread I really wanted to say Red Dead Redemption, but that was released last year. RDR is the only game where the outside environments stunned me, and more then once. This leads me to a problem I had with Vanquish's environments. Everything looks good technically but it's all kind of sterile, nothing really to sink your teeth into.|

Portal 2 was the jump off, kid.
I'd actually put that as a runner up, maybe right under Dead Space 2. I hated the multiplayer in the game but ONLY because I tried playing it with 2 different people who had already beaten it with someone else, and instead of having a chance to figure out the puzzles they would either just do them because they already knew how they worked or would get overly frustrated when I couldn't figure it out
Also, Dead Space 2's multiplayer was ok, but forgettable. I kind of forgot that it even had multiplayer.

|Fathom Zero||I'd also really like to mention Payday: The Heist, because it was fantastic and no one played it but me and twenty other dudes.|

Most of the games I play are old as piss because I also only buy used. I've only played four games that were released this year:
Dead Space 2
I loved Dead Space 2.
Vanquish was alright. To be honest I don't like cover shooters so I only rented Vanquish because it was directed by Shinji Mikami.
Portal 2 was great.
LA Noire was okay.

Nothing more to say.

Favorite game of 2011?
I'll start off by saying that I didn't play Skyrim. Mainly because I want Fallout 4 to feel fresh. I loved Fallout 3 but at times it felt like I was playing an Oblivion expansion pack.
Mine was definitely Dead Space 2.
It was gorgeous, scary as hell, brutally gory and had some truly breath taking and memorable moments.
The first game was amazing and I feel like I didn't hear much of it. I played through it probably 5 times and even on the hardest difficulty. After I finished it I didn't really think much of it as a series or a franchise and then when I heard about the sequel I was instantly pumped. There was even a contest to design a necromorph kill which was put up by Visceral Games through Facebook. I entered with a short story (there was no restriction on medium used) but I didn't make it
It was a cool story though.
Dead Space 2 lived up to the hype and blew my balls out of my asshole. Every second of the game has you on the edge of your seat. There are a ton of unlockables as well including hardcore mode (this game is already hard as shit) which makes ammo VERY limited (causing you to rely heavily on using telekinesis to skewer and kill enemies with random items laying around (not that easy mind you)) AND you only get 3 FUCKING SAVES
Haven't played it through hardcore mode yet but it's something I always talk about finishing. Also, word has it that Dead Space 3 is going to take place on an ice planet, and instead of darkness everywhere it's said that blinding light is going to be the antagonist. I'm skeptical but Visceral Games did everything right with Dead Space 2 so I am fully putting my faith in them.
More great moments (Mega Spoiler)
Little Big Planet 2. I love the first LBP and have made some insane stuff. I really didn't pick this game as my favorite because when I get in create mode, I can't stop myself. I feel like it's what WoW players go through. I build and build and create until the sun comes back up. I honestly have this game in storage because I will stay in my room and play it all night. If anyone wants to see some of the stuff I've made (which you probably don't) search for Thrashed By Plasma. My PSN is ThrashOmen.
Gears of War 3. Waited for this game ever since the end of Gears 2. Pre-ordered 2 years in advance, was devastated about multiple push backs and was a boss in the beta. When it was released (along with my load) it was awesome and made up for GoW 2's weak ass ending. Plus, Horde mode has eaten away at many hours/days of me and my room mate's time, plus standard multiplayer is phenominal. As much love and history I have for this series, Dead Space 2 just felt like something so new, exciting and bad ass that I had to give it top spot.
Vanquish. Beautiful shooter with a retro-y/arcade shooter kind of feel to it. It makes me think of a shitty japanese b-movie but with a serious budget and production value. I didn't beat it but I loved what I played of it. I haven't been able to find it anywhere (I only buy used games) but when I do I'm definetely going to pick it up and finish it.
I'm sure alot of people are going to post Skyrim, which is cool because from what I've seen it looks epic. Plus Bethesda is probably going to back it up with insane DLC like they did Fallout 3 which is going to make the game twice as absurd. My room mate said that the game glitched and he clipped through a boundary and he discovered that the lands from Oblivion and Morrowind are low-res modeled but FULLY in the game. He thinks it's for some sort of DLC which will link the last 3 games together, I think it's probably just background eye candy for some quest he hasn't done yet.
What was your favorite game of 2011?
