Magicka was one of the first games of the year, and is first on our list. Released in January by small indie team Paradox studios, the game was originally broken as hell. Anyone who bought it in its first few weeks of life would have played a bug-filled mess of a game. Luckily for us, we didn’t buy it until a few months later when everything had been ironed out. Featuring 4-player co-op, its an isometric action game, injected with humour and the best spell-casting system we’ve ever seen in a game.
2011 is over, then. It was an interesting year for gaming, with a relatively slow start and only a handful of big game sequels appearing early on with the likes of Little Big Planet 2, a new Total War game and Dragon Age 2. This was followed up by a great summer featuring The Witcher 2, LA Noire, a new Valve game and the unbelievable release of the mammothly disappointing Duke Nukem Forever. Then Winter came, good grief. In what proved to be one of the best gaming winters of all time, we could hardly keep up with the amount of games that came out week after week for the final few months of the year. Uncharted 3, Saints Row The Third and Modern Warfare 3 all hit us within a couple of weeks, we had a new Assassin’s Creed game, old-school arcade fun from Renegade Ops, a return to form from Sega in Sonic Generations and charming puzzler Trine 2 just managed to squeeze in before the year was out.
But none of these games were good enough to make our list. No, the top 10 games of 2011 are better than all of these. Care to find out what they are? Check back here every day as we count them down… Read More ››
Blimey. An entire year of gaming-related ramblings and ravings, the odd review, and those three rants… It’s been such a fun year, we’ve decided to carry on a while longer and see what happens. If you’ve ever read our words, cheers. If this is your first visit, well, sorry it had to be one of these annoying self-indulgent birthday messages. Just come back again tomorrow.
So last week saw a fantastic range of explosive awesomeness at E3; new games were announced, mostly involving death and explosions, existing ones got gorgeous new trailers, showing off fantastic gameplay and cinematics, and Nintendo unveiled a bloody unusual looking new console, one that has received rather conflicting first impressions across the board.
