Lots of video games came out in 2011. Which of these 2011 video games do you consider to be the best of the bunch?

See if you agree with the video game choices listed at the links below:

THE BEST game of 2011 in my book is Sonic Generations!

These lists are very much biased and limited. Most of these lists are "best high-profile games" or "best games I, editor, care about".

I'm almost offended that neither list had Catherine in it, especially after the fantastic reviews that game got.
I have to agree with Skyrim for best RPG, I'm not even a big fan of western RPGs but my friend convinced me to play it, I'm now 60 hours in and loving every second.

LA Noire definitely deserves to be on the list. Glad it's at least on one of them!

Those lists are about half of what I expected to see. I get the impression that they're more geared toward the latter half of the year, but that may just be a coincidence.

I have to admit, I'm a bit surprised that one isn't getting on more "best of the year" lists. The reviewers seemed to love it, but the hype for the game has died down a lot in the past month or two.

It is much like the Oscar and other awards, people tend to forget about the movies/games released towards the beginning of the year when they are flooded by high-profile titles (which doesn't mean they are better) towards the holiday season.

Some categories of the first list have some awkward results. For example, I'm sure the person who compiled the best handheld games is not even aware that PSP exists.
