The quick and dirty – Games of 2011 you must play

2011 ended up being a great year for games, be it sequel, threequel, or even an original performance.  I’ve been wanting to put together my own list of what I thought was the best of 2011, but its been a harder process to get written than I originally expected.  So while you wait for that (soon to be released) article I’ll treat you to this.

If you missed these games then you need to get to buyin’, because these are what I’d call in another form of media “required reading”.  I’ve listed the absolute, can’t-miss single-player games of 2011 right here, no explanations, just a quick list of what you need in your stash (in order of neediness):

  1. Batman: Arkham City
  2. Bastion
  3. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
  4. Dead Space 2
  5. From Dust
  6. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  7. L.A. Noire
  8. Shogun 2: Total War
  9. Portal 2
  10. Gears of War 3
  11. Terraria
  12. Magicka
  13. Child of Eden
  14. Stacking

Have at it, if you have missed any of these games then you need to get up on it!

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.
