My nominees: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim; Dark Souls; Dragon Age II
Winnner: Dark Souls
When Dragon Age 2 came out i really enjoyed that game, althought lots of people dont liked so DA2 could be my RPG of the year,but than i started playing Dark Souls and i was amazed by that game. Than after playing Dark Souls started playing Skyrim V and I didn't like that game like everyone sad "it was the best game from 2011" and until now I haven't finish this game yet and started to play 2012 titles.
My nominees: Battlefield 3; Crysis 2; Gears of War 3; Bulletstorm; Homefront; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Winner: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
I guess none game compare to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This game knows how to make the best single player campaign and multiplayer matchs. For more that people says Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the same from MW2 I just can say for these people that nobody learns with Infinity Ward on how to make shooters.
Game of the Year:
My nominees: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3; Dark Souls; Batman: Arkham City; Dead Space 2
Winner: Dark Souls
This game really made me wanna play more of that own game and I like games that makes you fill that. The replaying of this game is my favorite too because the secrets and mysteries from this game are so many and it's not only the quantities of these contents, but the quality of theses contents that makes me wanna play again and again and of course get nervous a lot with the game that I died over and over trying to defeat some boss or some areas.
I'm not talking about graphics because nowadays I guess every game is on a good level of graphic design.
About the combat system, it is just great!! Everything it's based on the stamina bar and that makes me thought a lot before attacking, dashing and blocking because every move you make you lose stamina and sometimes I died because I wanna be brave and finish things soon, but than I learned to be patient and learn the game tactics.
So what is your thought?
