Here we are again, the end of another year. A time to reflect on the games we enjoyed most, a time to listen in on game reviewers as they debate over what the best game of the year was. There are plenty of go-to games to choose from: Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Skyward Sword, Batman: Arkham City… And the list trails on.
What made 2011 special, however, was that there was more to it than a “go-to” list. Indie games like Bastion and Trine 2 were phenomenal examples of what a small group of alarmingly talented and creative game developers can do.
So, enjoy your time off from school and/or work, bask in the glow of the games that made it such a great year, and have a happy holidays.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
