All About Mogzsnet
Not too far from the truth...
I'd have to say that the quality of games released in 2011 rivals that of the ones released in 2007. There were some simply stunning titles released this year, but as always there are a select few that bludgeon their way to the top and in my opinion these are them:
Top Releases of 2011
1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
2. Star Wars: The Old Republic
3. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
4. Portal 2
5. Gears of War 3
6. Crysis 2
7. Batman: Arkham City
8. Dark Souls
9. L.A. Noire
10. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Well it's that time of year again. There's a slight chill to the air, the leaves are turning brown, and the NHL pre-season is in full swing. It's fall, and like every year i'm inundated with games. Every fall I take a long hard look at my Gamespot™ tracked list and I am blown away by how many games are being released before the end of the year. This year is no exception, I clearly have my work cut out for me. Thankfully I was able to put down several games in rapid succession; Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dead Island, 40K Space Marine, and Tropico 4. With those games completed and thoroughly enjoyed I should be able to focus on the up and coming releases. One small hiccup is the fact that I've never actually completed The Witcher....and own The Witcher 2. So right now I'm slugging my way through the final few Chapters of the first one, hoping to be able to actually progress to the 2nd.
With that said though, there's a significant amount of content being released in the near future and I seem to want to play 90% of it. To start I've been too lazy to actually go to EB Games and pick up Gears of War 3 and FIFA 12, so they're on my "to do" list. In early October Dark Souls and Rage are being released, and I'm keeping my eye on Payday: The Hei$t to see how the dust settles around that one. Mid October sees the release of Battlefield 3, while the end will tack on more content for Deus Ex: HR. In to November a wack of titles are to be released; Batman: Arkham City, LA: Noire (for PC), MW3, SKYRIM!, AC: Revelations, and finally in December Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Looking at that laundry list of games above, I can't help be feel overwhelmed with how much content there is to explore and enjoy. To compound matters I'll be going out of town for work in October for two weeks. Then in late November the girlfriend and I will be heading to South Korea and Indonesia for two weeks. Oh well, I suppose it's better to have TOO many games to play than not enough.
