Best PC Game 2011

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

PC X360 PS3

Get the Fus Ro Da out of my way, Skyrim is here and it is wonderful. With more unique quests than you can possibly imagine, soaring dragons to battle and hundreds of hand crafted dungeons to explore; Skyrim is a marvel amongst its typically lacklustre AAA companions. This is what a cRPG should be. Freedom to do as you choose, hundreds of hours of content, and a fantastically exciting world to explore in which every corner reveals something to grab your interest. Sure there are bugs, but they are negligible to the overall experience. Never before have we so quickly rushed back on to a game after it has just crashed on us. We are going to be playing and talking about Skyrim for a very long time.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

PC X360 PS3
Proving that story driven RPG’s can still be done well, The Witcher 2 was an expected favourite of ours this year. Wrapping us up into its plot and ravishingly engaging characters was done with an elegance rarely seen. A superb RPG experience that looks utterly astounding on pretty much any PC. We were honoured to be treated as an adult by CD Projekt once again.
Portal 2

Portal 2

PC X360 PS3
Portal 2 is a perfect example of why people love Valve. The puzzles strike a perfect balance of challenge and fun, new elements such as acceleration and bouncing gels keep things from getting stale, and the Wheatley/GLaDOS/Cave Johnson trifecta of personalities all combine to forge an utterly unforgettable experience.
Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3

PC X360 PS3
While certainly not a perfect game, Battlefield’s online multiplayer is so deep and rewarding that it overshadows most of the game’s shortcomings. The game succeeds in making you feel like an important player working towards a greater goal instead of a mindless drone that shoots at anything that moves. Oh, and it’s absolutely beautiful.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

PC X360 PS3
A divisive prequel to arguably the greatest game ever made. Deus Ex: Human Revolution impresses with a well realized future world and an impressive array of gameplay choice. The loose story and the not too stellar boss battles leave something to improved in the next Deus Ex but ultimately don’t detract from the great game it is.
