Top 10 games of 2011

It's that time of the year again: a time to look back at 2011 for its gaming prowess; to pay tribute to those elite pieces of electronic interactive entertainment that reside in a league all by themselves.

Just like last year, 2011 treated us to a few new franchises, but, ultimately, the sequels once again hogged the spotlight. While 2010 stumbled towards the end of the year, 2011 went out with an absolute bang, seeing nearly a dozen blockbuster titles hit store shelves within just a few weeks.

Don't see your pick for game of the year on our list? Be sure to yell at us in the comments section. But first, make sure you take a look at our list of very worthy honourable mentions by clicking through.

Modern Warfare 3 was the dud of all duds. Never again. Played it once. All the unlocks are there to start with. WTF? Greed, greed and more greed. How about developing something for those older than 12 next time!!!!!!!

Screw Skyrim. My ps3 copy is an absolute dud - all software and patches are up to date, etc, but the game is completely unplayable. Freezing, lagging, incorrectly rendered characters and out of sync cut-scenes... The whole thing is like play a beta V0.01 version. The worst thing is Bethesda refuses to reply to my emails, so I have absolutely no avenue of resolving this problem.

Negative 10 points for this POS ps3 release.

Some great games here no question. It's been a good year!
Surprised to see no Assassin's Creed in this list, though.
