This year certainly goes into my top three favorite years for gaming. We had a extraordinary amount of incredible games, in every single category. From zombies to cars, gorgeous mountains and fun cities. Many new characters entered the gaming world, and a new console was even announced known simply as the Wii U. A new portable system was also released in Japan, with revolutionary technology.

But now this memorable year is coming to a close, and many websites are hosting their Best of 2011 awards. This topic is for all relations to those awards.

Oh my god! As I was entering this topic, for no absolute reason the words, "A Blast from the Past," entered my brain, and then I read Diego's post! That's insane.:|

All games I played from this year I enjoyed. I just wish gamespot would have given Human Revolution and Dead Space 2 some recognition.

I suppose no one here would agree with me if I said that Ghost Trick was the best in the DS category this year?

I didn't really play my DS this year and actually bought none for it, but of the games I played I would say yes. Unfortunately that means I agree with you again :x Damn!

Nope, I didn't get to play for very long, but what I did play was fun. Plus with the DS severely lacking in the software department, it's almost a no brainer like LoZ for Wii.

It is for me :x

Dude go play Mortal Kombat. Hell even MvC3 was a good fighting game, and I didn't play King of Fighters but it was supposedly great.

xD I think the game looks cool, plus Raiden is badass. I don't understand why people are hating on it. They distinctly took out "Solid" from the title and replaced it with "Rising" to separate it from Snake's stories and branch off. Plus it's not like you're forced to buy it.

No, but it still takes place after four, and for Raiden that makes no sense...

Sure it does. He was still alive at the end of 4. We don't know the story of the game so far, but if it is gonna follow the story laid out I would believe it has something to do with his family. Who knows? All we can do is wait.

Revenge with a vengeance :P Like I said, it could have something to do with his family. We just simply don't know yet so there's is no way that you can say that it doesn't.

That is precisely the reason Raiden is getting his own game, and possibly his own series. I stated this earlier, they took "Solid" out of the title for a reason. They said from the very beginning that it would be a completely different experience. The original tagline was not "Tactical Espionage Action" rather it was "Lightning Bolt Action" Kojima based the game off of the cutscenes in MGS4 where Raiden first came and fought the Geckos. He wanted to make it possible to play those scenes. Hence why it stands alone and vengeance can take place in this series.

I know what was the development idea, but it still uses a main character from the MGS storyline...

Well think of it as a spinoff series. Luigi got his own game, and people give that game much praise. Just because he is from the MGS universe doesn't mean he has to do everything by the MGS book. I would hate a game where I was a badass cyborg ninja and was forced to sneak around because of some fodder that is in my way. Kojima even said that stealth still plays a part in the game, but now it isn't the focal point.

All I'm saying is that this game is recieving a lot of hate for no reason. The gameplay looks fast and fun, and I'm looking foward to learning more about Raiden.

I'm not talking about the Stealth, I'm talking about the ideas it preaches.nintendo_warrio

Well my point still remains, Luigi's mansion was a completely different ideal than a mario game, but that didn't stop people from loving it. Why is it so hard to judge this game on its own merits as well? Raiden never has followed any MGS traditions, and therefore I think the game is looking spot on.

Mario does have ideas, although not as pronounced as some games. It is still good triumphing over evil to save the damsel in distress.

And I know what you mean, but my argument remains. Raiden has always followed his own path/ ideals.

If you haven't played 4, don't stay on the menu screen too long. It's super awesome, it genuinely spoils the ending of the game. Oh Kojima, you crazy.

I was shocked by the title screen, yet I liked the idea for certain reasons I'll keep to myself. It contains spoilers, and I know Diego is going to read it!:x
