5 Favourite Games Of 2011
All right, here we go: my five favourite games from 2011.
1. Yakuza 4 - CS1 Team
Players into Japanese gangster dramas and RPG/beat-'em-up hybrids should really check out the Yakuza series (starting with 3 if you prefer drama, and 4 if you prefer beating people up). Yakuza 4 has a story for thinking, feeling adults that http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifblends themes of brotherhood and honour with absurd humour. Exploring the city is always atmospheric, and beating up thugs (yet never killing anyone!) is always a treat.
2. Sonic CD - Christian Whitehead (port)
I've played through this game 10 times since it's been out on PSN. It's a game I've been wanting to play since 1993 but never had the hardware -- the only Sonic similar to the first game, where platforming and exploration are as important as speed. The 90s neon colours are the best kind of gaudy. Also, this level theme.
3. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Nintendo EAD
4. Dark Souls - From Software
5. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - Eighting
