Best Games of 2011? Here is a good start

January 7, 2011

There is an interesting article in the Guardian/Observer about what cool looking games are coming in 2011.  They list a number of titles.  Ones I’m also looking forward to from their list are:

Batman: Arkham City Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Warner Bros

No room in the madhouse? Why not relocate the criminally insane downtown? This is the ominous backdrop to Arkham City, the bigger, badder and even darker follow-up to Batman: Arkham Asylum, last year’s Bafta Game of the Year. Still not convinced? It will have lashings of extra Catwoman. Serge Pennings

Little Big Planet 2 PS3, Sony

To deliver more tools, more tricks, and more levels designed by more absurdly talented … Well, everybody. Sackboy returns in the New Year to taunt non-PS3 owners with his exclusive sociability. It is unusual for something so cute to be so cool, or so praiseworthy to be so playable. Perfect. SP

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Square Enix

The third outing for RPG-shooter Deus Ex is set 25 years before the original, where biomechanical augmentations precede the nanotech central to the original. Branching plot lines based on player choice mix with cyberpunk and renaissance themes underscored by a sense of ambiguity and conspiracy that will be maintained until the final moments, insists game director Jean-Francois Dugas. GR

It’s a great list and there is nothing on there that does not sound fun, it’s just the ones above grab me a bit more than the others. I’d also add that I’m really after Killzone 3 and Crysis 2.
