Hello guys! Jamemba here and I'm going to show you my favorite games of 2011. 2011 was a wonderful year for gaming! There were awesome releases for every month except June and July (scumbags...). Since I don't own a console or a handheld (not counting my messed up PSP) I will only be presenting PC games. Some people say that PC gaming is a dying breed. Developers are focusing more on making console games than PC games. Stupid things like piracy gives PC gaming a bad name and scares the developers into making console-only games. Although I agree that piracy is absolutely annoying, I know that PC gaming is NOT dead. This year is perfect evidence that PC gaming is still strong. PC exclusives like the Witcher 2, Shogun 2: Total War etc. were absolutely amazing. If PC gaming was truly dead then we'd have only a handful of exclusives coming out. I will always support PC gaming because it's the reason I game. I remember playing Need for Speed 2 on my aunt's PC when I was only five. Those were absolute fun times. Long live video gaming! Okay, enough of the boring speech. Here are my top 10 games of 2011: 10) Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 A lot of people hate this game because it's the same as MW2, Black Ops etc. Even though it doesn't bring anything new to the Call of Duty table, it is very entertaining. 2010's Black Ops was absolutely amazing, but MW3 doesn't quite live up to BO's standards. But hey, it's Call Of Duty. Explosions, guns, shooting, more explosions, amazing set pieces, and a bit more explosions. This is what this game's about and it doesn't disappoint. The shooting is still solid, the controls are sharp, the set pieces are amazing, but the story is a bit bland. The story could have used a bit more work. Overall, it's a solid shooting experience, but it's only a matter of time before this series starts going a bit stale. 9)Bulletstorm Ah, Bulletstorm. Thank you for teaching me in the art of dick jokes. I had a 'ball' of a time shooting people in their butts and getting points for it. The points system was very innovative. I hope developers pick up this idea and put them in future games. Killing bad guys in style is the name of the game. And the dialogue. Where would Bulletstorm be without it? Phrases like "You scared the dick off of me!" and "Sushi-dick" made my day. This game would 'blow' without the skillshot system and the dialogue. You have to kill bad guys in such style that they don't see you 'coming'. Okay, I'll stop now. :/ 8)Dragon Age II Many people were disappointed with this game. They said that it was consolized and sucked. Though the game is a bit consolized it is very fun. The combat is fast and flashy. The conversation system is deeper and more complex. A lot of your decisions change the game world. The story was a bit of a letdown though. Kirkwall is not as interesting as Ferelden. Although it may not be as good as it's predecessor, I highly recommend RPG fans to check it out. It's really addictive. 7)Driver: San Francsico I was surprised by this game. I thought this would be another flop Driver title, but boy, was I wrong. This is one of the best driving games I've played this year. There are a variety of missions to do. From racing to scaring people. This game's got it all. The vehicle models look fabulous. The new Shift feature is very innovative. It lets you drive any car you want anywhere on the map. How cool is that? Having trouble getting rid of the cops? Just bash them with a truck and make them wish they were never born. There are many cars to choose from and the best part is that all of them have interior views which makes the game 40% more awesome! 6)Dead Island I hate zombies. I'm tired of them being featured in everything. This game changed my mind. Dead Island is a completely different zombie experience. It has an open world, driving, first-person melee combat, and levelling up. First of all, I loved the combat. Hacking and slashing at zombies has never been this fun. The damage model is what makes it fun. It's very realistic and disgusting. It will make you cringe and smile at the same time. You can also play four player co-op. Driving around with a group of friends is immensely entertaining. It's like a small zombie massacring party. This game has brought a lot to the table and I'm eagerly expecting a more polished and better written sequel. 5)Dirt 3 I used to love driving games when I was like 10. But in recent years, the lack of satisfactory driving games made me lose interest in the genre. Back in 2009, Dirt 2 was the game that made me fall in love with the genre all over again. The graphics, the handling, the races. It was all perfect. Dirt 3 does it all and then some. It's still the game I fell in love with but with better everything! The various tracks were absolutely beautiful. From the dirt tracks of Kenya to the forests in Finland, they all look beautiful. I can't wait to see what Codemasters does with Dirt 4. 4)Deus Ex: Human Revolution A sci-fi RPG first person shooter? Meh. Or atleast that's what I thought before playing it. When I did play it, it blew my mind. You can do almost anything. That man pissed you off? Help yourself. Deus Ex: HR allows you to complete missions in a number of ways. Although these types of non-linear quests have been present in a lot of games, this game takes full advantage of it. You can either tip toe your way past the guards or beat the living $#!% outta them. It's all your choice. This game also brings forth the question of augmentations. Are they good for society or are they bad? Questions like these make the plot stronger and more interesting. The stealth gameplay is challenging and very tense. That's what adds to the fun. These points make this game absolutely awesome. 3)The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings This PC exclusive is absolutely beautiful and captivating. It kept me on my toes from beginning to end. The Witcher 2 has RPG classic written all over it. The story, the graphics, the combat, and the moral decisions. These are what makes this game so good! Your decisions can even change the whole story. That is what I look for in RPGs. How much do your decisions affect the world? There is no good or evil. Only what is necessary. Geralt is neither a hero nor a villain. All he wants is a peaceful life, which is something that keeps evading him. The characters feel human and makes the story better. More developers need to add a human touch to their games. 2)To The Moon Speaking of human touch, this game is the mother of story-writing. It made me cry and I'm not the one who usually cries during movies. At first, the Gameboy-like pixel graphics made me doubtful. To The Moon proves you don't need big cinematics or voice actors to make a good game. Good writing can take you a long way. The gameplay isn't the main attraction here. It' the story. The story will break your heart, mend it, and then break it again. It's funny, heartwarming, and beautiful. It's simply one of the best games I've ever played! The music really adds to the story and makes the game even better. I doubt the story would have had much impact without the music. Hats off to the guys at Freebird Games! I'm looking forward to your next project. 1)The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim I guess it's no surprise, but Skyrim is freaking awesome! The amount of stuff you can do here is unlimited. I played Oblivion, but it failed to suck me in. Skyrim pulled me into the world as soon as the prologue was over. The world is huge and beautiful. You can do anything you want. There are no limits, no boundaries. The story is pretty interesting. Stop the dragon god Alduin before he destroys the world. Even after finishing the main story, Skyrim will keep you coming back for more. Skyrim itself is a beautiful place to explore. Random little events add to the immersiveness of the game. The combat is not that good though. It feels loose and unsatisfying. Combat is just a small blemish on this absolutely amazing game. Moar of this please! So here you are guys. My top 10 games of 2011. It may change though since I still have to finish some games like AC: Revelations, Batman: AC, Saints Row The Third etc. I'll edit this if any of those games crack my top 10 list.
