Best Downloadable cheap game to me is Bastion.

2nd Place is Terraria (Have not played Minecraft)

And 3rd place is Duke Nukem Forever

I fully intend to play it with my new laptop when I get it though.

It's weird but Portal 2 runs a bit better than the original did for me on my PC. Portal 2 is amazing for sure and was a major improvement, I replayed the original directly after finishing it and beat it in an hour, lol. It'll probably take you a few the first time around, but yeah, Portal 2 is a bigger and better experience I'd say.

beautiful game though... Leto and I would play the crap out of it after I got out of school and just sit there and watch the ending. OH if I had to go for a fun downloadable it would be

Limbo

I plan on downloading it on Steam. It's so much fun.

Elara THANK YOU I forgot about Portal 2.

I put my vote on Portal 2. Mainly because of this.

Skyrim gets my vote... I don't think I really played anything else that came out in 2011... *thinks*

Oh, right, Portal 2... yes, that gets my #2 pick.

Yeah, it's basically an open world, limited primarily by your ability to die less often in some areas.

Honestly I played a bit of Demon Souls and didn't like that aspect either. So Dark Souls is setup differently?

I couldn't really get into Demon's Souls, tbh. The way the world was seperated into distinct levels just didn't sit right with me, because of how they were accessed.

No, I'm not a fan of the "hub level" system.

Additionally, the Estus Flasks are much more forgiving than the need to purchase healing items in Demon's Souls (Flasks refill at campfires). Despite being ostensibly harder than Demon's Souls, a lot of the minor changes make things much more forgiving.

Like how you don't lose 50% of your health for dying. (unless it's a Curse attack, then you're going to have some problems)

The bosses still kill me to death, though.

How would you compare Dark Souls to Demon Souls? I need to pickup both for sure sometime.

I don't care that you call OoT3D Game of the Year, it just fails my arbitrary requirements.

And as illustrated with my previous posts, I'm pretty damn picky about what I'd call a GotY - only Dark Souls and SM3DL might deserve the nomination to me, and I'm not even considering Skyrim for the title (good, just not GotY material).

I've spent most of the year playing older games and Minecraft and Terraria. Minecraft went through a series of shitty updates in the leadup to the official 1.0 release that ruled it out for me, but Terraria may deserve a nod.

I can't really choose anything else Astrophel... I mean I haven't really played anything else that is new. I got to sample Skyrim with a friend of mine but Eric and I are debating on getting it for PC. Only problem is. If we DO buy it on Steam I'm going to have to restore my laptop and what not so that I can get my computer back to optimal running.

OBJECTION!

Vaati isn't in the GBC games, that's Veran and Onox. Who later get hijacked by Ganon anyway.


I still wasn't too thrilled with Skyward Sword's required use of motion controls, but they're not horrible, and Ocarina of Time is disqualified for me because it's a remake (damn good one, but still a remake - same reason Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy is out)

SM3DL, though, I'm with you on.

As a nintendo/Zelda nut these are my top three

#3 Super Mario 3D Land



Why? Because it freakin rocks! It's one of the best side scroller/3D games out there for me. First of all. This is one of the newest Marios you can do a SPEED RUN with because it's really short like Mario 3(We've all seen the speed run) and it takes about 10 minutes to make it through each world with out getting all three coins.

The Tanuki Tail is back too. =P Plus it's so easy to get 1 Ups in this game too.

Nintendo also introduced the Invincibility Leaf. If you died 5 times in one level you get the white Tanooki Suit as Mario (not Luigi). It's a Tanooki Leaf only it acts as a star til the end of the level. How cool is that? So you can beat the game with out all the aggravation.

#2 Zelda 64 3D
Who can't love this game... The graphics are better and there's GLASSESLESS 3D!! I love that

#1 Zelda Skyward Sword


I got this for Christmas. You start with SIX HEARTS because it's TWICE AS HARD!! They incorporated all Zelda's into this. In fact it's a prequel to all the other Zelda's. Which is weird in fact. Anyway I love the game play and the Wii Motion Plus will react right when you want it to. It's great. The game rocks. It's a wonderful addition to the saga.

No that's not Vaati if you have played the GBA and GBC games. Gannondorf or Gannon is not even mentioned in this game.

And they made Zelda more capable too!!! Squeee... She's not just some random damsel in distress.

It's too bad the producer of these games can't finish The Legend of Zelda though.


In Feb I will be picking up Xenoblade and Tales of the Abyss for 3DS.

It's toss up between LA Noire and Yakuza 4 with a slight edge to Yakuza 4. I have a few games from 2011 that I haven't played yet so my pick might change.

I'll probably pickup Skyward Sword in February when Xenoblade drops, definitely picking up a Wii then. Wiiners.

EDIT: Wait, I guess Xenoblade drops in April. No idea why I kept thinking February... well, whenever I get a Wii again for that is when I'll get Zelda! And some other stuff, I still need to play Galaxy 2, NSMB Wii, and Donkey Kong Country Returns (played a lot at a friends, definitely epic stuff).

What even came out this year? Will try best to make a list!!

Haven't played it yet but Skyward Sword, haven't played but Shadows of the Damned, Vanquish, Gears 3? I guess?!

Out of things I played in general, those four plus Yakuza 4. Yakuza 4 was bosstown.
