AP's Top Ten Games of 2011

December 20, 2011 -

The Associated Press has named its top ten games of 2011, with Portal 2 taking the top honors, followed by Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human, Revolution, the indie darling Bastion, and Batman Arkham City.

"It's essentially a series of abstract puzzles, and yet, Portal 2 delivers one of the year's most satisfying — and malevolently funny — stories," wrote AP's Lou Kesten.

Fair enough. Some might argue that Skyrim is better than Portal 2  but that would be like arguing that one super model is better than the other. They are both great games. The full list can be found below:

1. Portal 2 (Valve)

2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Bethesda Softworks)

3. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Square Enix)

4. Bastion (Supergiant Games)

5. Batman: Arkham City (Warner Bros.)

6. InFamous 2 (Sony)

7. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Nintendo)

8. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (Sony)

9. Rayman Origins (Ubisoft)

10. Dead Space 2 (Electronic Arts)

Andrew EisenGoth - Great. Just don't be a dick about it! (not aimed at you)05/06/2015 - 8:13pm
Matthew Wilson@goth do it in a reasonable manner thought. do not harass her.05/06/2015 - 8:13pm
Mattsworknamelots of gamers fall into that p roblem, as do some feminists and other grooups05/06/2015 - 8:11pm
Goth_SkunkI think when someone is as influential as Sarkeesian is, having and espousing that opinion is dangerous. It has to be challenged. She has to be told, 'No, you're wrong about this.' And her influence should suffer as a result.05/06/2015 - 8:11pm
Mattsworknamegg has its bad actors and most moderate ggs dislike or outright work against them. be careful not to let your own hate or bias make you act like those you accuse05/06/2015 - 8:10pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Hell, sometimes minorities (peoples, opinions, whatever) themselves are just so damn scary to a number of the majority that they get marginalized whether there were so called bad actors or not.05/06/2015 - 8:09pm
Mattsworknamemechacrash, my point was that groups get marked by the actions of minoritys among them. as andrew points out, this isn't just feminist or gg, it's universal due to the wide spread use of social media05/06/2015 - 8:07pm
