Happy Gaming in 2011
Happy New Year everyone! See 2011’s biggest videogames in the Top 100 overview below. I love making this list every year. Mainly because 2011 is looking to be yet another awesome year for us gamers!

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…

    What are your favorite games?

    * The long disclaimer about why certain games are/aren’t included:
    The following games don’t have a clear launch window yet, are on hold, or aren’t expected to arrive until 2012: Final Fantasy Versus XIII, BioShock Infinite, Diablo III, Halo 4, Grand Theft Auto 5, Beyond Good & Evil 2, next Prince of Persia game, Hitman 5, Resident Evil 6, Street Fighter X Tekken, Guild Wars 2, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, DMC: Devil May Cry, Pikmin 3, Fable 4, Fallout Online, Ninja Gaiden III, Xenoblade, Dragon Quest X, Far Cry 3, Thief 4, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Serious Sam 3, Sly 4, Codename Kingdoms, The Agency, N.O.V.A. 3, White Knight Chronicles 2, The Secret World, and Saints Row 3. — Then there’s all the awesome downloadable content releases that I didn’t know where to place. Remakes & Ports were excluded, as the focus is on new releases. I wish I could’ve included more handheld titles (DS, PSP, iPhone) and games from Indie developers, but they are often not announced until nearly complete. E3 2011 will also hold surprise announcements we don’t know about yet. What remained is what you see above and while all these games are wildly different, I truly believe these games will all be on par with each other with 8, 9 or 10 out of 10 scores.
