This should come as no surprise to anyone who knew me when Oblivion released. Ever since Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind released; I have been an avid follower of the Elder Scrolls series. Skyrim not only improves the formula Oblivion introduced, but it also surpassed it in every way imaginable. This is by far, the largest game released this year. It's beautiful, it's large, it's epic. This is game is the definition of, "you got more than your moneys worth."
2011 was an amazing year in gaming, with a lot of huge releases. Several honorable mentions to: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3, Shadows of The Damned,Rage, Catherine, Dark Souls, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Uncharted 3, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and Dragon Age II.
Biggest Dissapointment of 2011 award goes to:
