Top 100 videogames of 2011


Anticipation without means, is half the fun or so it seems. While you are now looking forward to a great many games, at the end of 2011 I believe the listed titles are the games you will fondly remember playing. Both logical and indeterminable factors taken into account are: Hype, developer potential, nostalgia, recent critical successes, a series’ past sales and average review scores, all counted towards this unbiased Top 100 of big games you can expect to see in 2011.
No doubt one of your favorite games is missing*. I want to emphasize this is not my personal opinion, I’ve had to cut about 100 games from the original overview in editing the past 20 hours. But I’m really happy with how the Top 50 turned out and hope to play half of them (all of us at VGB own all systems). If your favorites aren’t high enough in the list I look forward to seeing what your Top 5 looks like in the comments. Release date are listed behind each game’s systems overview. If you’re looking for media from a certain game, click on its name and you’ll go to a new page with the most relevant info. With that said…
