Now I don’t want to go into all the games of this year but I would like mention a few that really made the year in gaming so spectacular. It all started with Isaac Clarke’s harrowing trek through Dead Space 2, a return to Netherrealm with Mortal Kombat, averting alien control in Crysis 2, choosing your side in Infamous 2, solving puzzles in Portal 2 and even catching them all with Pokemon Black & White. This short list opened the flood gates for games in the beginning of the year and as the industry began to trickle over the summer, it wasn't long before those gates reopened.
The second half of the year began with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, one of my top picks for this year, and also saw the release of the 3's. Gears of Wars 3, Uncharted 3, Call of Duty: MW 3, Battlefield 3 and Resistance 3 all solidifying 2011 as one of the best years to be a gamer, not to mention that the year closed with the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
There might have been a few bumps along the way but the industry managed to pull ahead and gratify the gamers appetite. So how do you feel about the industry in 2011, good/bad?
