    CNN's Top 10 Video Games of 2011

    Source

    The abbreviated list:


    10. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
    9. LA Noire
    8. LittleBigPlanet 2
    7. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    6. NBA 2K11
    5. Saints Row: The Third
    4. Bastion
    3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    2. Batman: Arkham City
    1. Portal 2


    This may start some fires. I'm talking without experience here, but how the hell does an NBA game make the top 10?? Also, as much as I LOVED Saints Row: The Third, there's no way it beats Uncharted 3 or Deus Ex.

    Still, I can't argue with Portal 2 taking the top spot.

    Let the bitching and trolling begin!

    How the Hell did La Noire get on that list and NBA WTF?

    No Zelda, but NBA 2K12 gets on that list.

    EDIT-I just realized that they put NBA 2K11 on that list...that didn't even come out this year. They failed at their own list

    I mean it's basically "some dude" at CNN who happens to play video games, making him their resident critic, apparently.

    Again this is coming from people who know nothing about games... Which is why I don't care about this list. It's the same as Puerto Rico's top 10 video game list of 2011... boy was that ugly when I read it yesterday...

    Ok, I can see some games on here that deserve to make the list. But, NBA 2K11!? Didn't that come out LAST YEAR!? SMH!! I can't see LA Noire being on that list. I think Infamous 2 could be on that list. Just my opinion.

    Wow, a sports game gets in a top 10 list I know people love sports games just like I love CoD, but neither should be in a top 10, unless you're just comparing there counterparts.

    your right...the fires will start. IMO... i would never play any of those games on that list accepted for nba 2k11. it had sold over 4 million copies and why it shouldn't be on the list?

    Well the biggest problem is that it came out in 2010, not 2011.

    Number of sales (or revenue, for that matter) is no indication of quality. CoD MW3 was the fastest game in history to reach $1,000,000,000 in sales, but it didn't make the list either. (source)

    Okay, if you're going to make claims like that, you really need to start providing sources. I could come out and say that Rango sold four trillion copies and that Apples to Apples is the new best-selling game of all time, but without a source of that information, you'd be a fool to believe me.

    In this case though, I'll provide a source for you: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hits #1 on Japanese Sales Charts - Gamequack | Gamequack.

    Still though, you are talking about sales, which as I've already said, is not a fair indicator of quality. "Top 10" lists like the one I provided in this thread have more to do with qualitative features of a game and less, if anything, to do with sales.

    .

    NBA2K12 is not there! It's NBA2K11 and it isn't likely to be a typo since that article says "NBA2K11" in three different places.

    Agreed. I also think Infamous 2 along with some others should be on the list. Uncharted 3 only being #10. Come on now. I haven't played some of the games on the list but from what I hear they belong. This is a BS list.

    to the ppl that play nba 2k games may think it is better. its all about preference. seem like shoot em up's and rpg's should only be on a list...wrong.

    This is what I read from Puerto Rico's top 10 games of 2011. Which from what I understand in what I read was voted by people in Puerto Rico:

    Se acerca el fin de 2011, y llegó la hora de escoger los videojuegos del año. ¿Qué significa decir que Final Fantasy es superior a Civilization? ¿O que Dragon Age es mejor que Madden?

    Por eso, hemos preparado una lista de los mejores títulos del año, no seré yo quien escoja los ganadores.

    Los invito a ustedes, ‘gamers’ boricuas, a comentar en esta nota, visitar el blog Fuera del control. Además te invitamos a opinar en Facebook y Twitter. En dos semanas, en este mismo espacio, presentaremos los juegos que, según ustedes, definieron el 2011.

    10. Assassin's Creed: Revelations
    9. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
    8. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
    7. Bulletstorm
    6. Fight Night Champion
    5. Battlefield 3
    4. NBA 2K12
    3. Call of Duty: Black Ops
    2. Batman: Arkham City
    1. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    This list isn't that bad but no Portal 2? WTH is Black Ops doing there? Bulletstorm?
    The bolds are the fun ones to see!

    Hey at least they picked the correct version of NBA, even if they did take a big swing and a miss at Black Ops.

    my fault.. i was looking at that same article. you have to wonder a bit why they are putting the most newest games on that list and comparing them to games that was on the shelves for awhile. should thay had said the 10 top xmas games or top 10 end of the quarter games?
