Well, As we enter the final quarter of 2011, I wanted to recognize the Outstanding games that have come out so far this year, Some were great, Others sucked. And few were amazing. Without further adeu, Here are my top 5 games of the year so far
5. LittleBigPlanet 2
If its not broken, DON'T CHANGE IT. LittleBigPlanet not only brings back everything you loved about the first, But it also brings back a much more smoother level editer and the ability to turn littlebigplanet into something completely differrent! A racer, A Shump and much more, It also lets you bring all the content you bought in the first game into the second!
4. Deadspace 2
This game was SCARY. Deadspace 2 fixed alot of issues I had with the first one (More of a scary atmosphere instead of rooms covered in blood, Less ammo given to the player) I actually had to buy another gun in this game instead of running through it with the plasma cutter! Which shows that the developers put time and effort into making a solid sequel. Only complaint? Alot of jump scares felt unfair and a shitload of damage was gonna happen to the player
3. L.A. Noire
L.A Noire was a great game that require alot of attention to be played, Each action you took in between investigating a person had to be thought out and judged on how the suspect or witness responded to the question you gave them. It required you to really sit down and be an actual detective, L.A. Noire brought back something that has been lost in video games, Quality, and thought.
2. Mortal Kombat
Holy FUCK did this series need a Reboot. After MK4. Mortal Kombat slowly fell of the radar due to some shitty games and characters no one gave two fucks about. Mortal Kombat brought back the good old days of MK2 and 3. It had a roster full of characters that everyone loved, And it made sure not to bring back any bo Ri cho's or Zombie Lui Kang's (screw you midway). The story was actually a good simple one that flushed out alot of characters before they became the kombatant we recognised them as (Cyrax And Sektor). Only fall back, Cyber Sub Zero. DUMB. An ok soundtrack and good voice acting makes this game, Worth the price.
1. Portal 2
Portal 2 in all sense, Is a masterpiece. Bringing back the highly successful formula of the first portal. Portal 2 involved using your cunning and thought to place where each portal goes. Add gels into that and you have a formula that will require split second portal placement changes and a solid plan to lay out each one. Throw a top notch Soundtrack and voice acting on a solid 7-8 hours of gameplay that you will come back and play over and over again and you got one hell of a package. I know people that don't play many video games that picked up portal 2 and LOVED IT. Its a fantastic game. And I highly recommend it
