So without any further ado let’s head right into best video game released in 2011. A new article will be posted soon covering the best games released in 2012. 

Portal 2

Portal is perfect. Portal 2 is not. It’s something better than that. It’s human: hot-blooded, silly, poignant, irreverent, base, ingenious and loving. It’s never less than a pure video game, but it’s often more, and it will no doubt stand as one of the best entertainments in any medium at the end of this year. It’s a masterpiece. – Eurogamer
Sporting some of the best writing and voice work in years (as well as some deviously designed puzzles), Portal 2’s single-player campaign is superior to its predecessor in every way. It’s the co-op mode, however, that makes this 2011’s first must-play game — even for those gamers that don’t like first-person or puzzle games. – GameSpy
The game’s quality stays consistently outstanding throughout; there isn’t a minute of filler content to be found anywhere in single-player or co-op. – Game Informer

Elder’s Scroll V Skyrim

In its worst moments Skyrim stumbles over its confused artificial intelligence, shutting itself down and its half-done inventory system. In its best ones Skyrim is the king of the new age of the genre. – Games.cz
Let me clear things up by assuring you that none of the quest bugs, graphical issues, gameplay glitches, or unexplained crashes I’ve encountered can change the fact that I played this amazing RPG for well over 100 hours in the past couple weeks and absolutely loved it. – FiringSquad
You will have to spend dozens of hours to fully explore Skyrim. Like any other Bethesda game, it has its share of imperfections and broken promises, but it’s exciting and fascinating nevertheless. Wait for a couple of patches to come out, download the best mods, tighten the screws in the SkyrimPrefs.ini file, and you’re good to go for a virtual Christmas vacation. – Absolute Games

Batman Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City is one of those games that rightly garnered much attention with the end of 2011 Game of the Year lists. Maybe it didn’t get as much attention from PC gamers, but it should. If you want to have the definitive Arkham City experience, I’d say PC is the way to go. – Armchair Empire
It’s tough to sum up everything that makes Arkham City work as well as it does. If Arkham Asylum was a fun-house chock-full of Batman’s most famous foes with a decent dose of fanservice for Dark Knight die-hards, this is a sprawling theme park that plumbs the depths of his case files. – GamePro
The almost perfect sequel to an almost perfect game. – Gamers.at

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

An imperfect, complex and ambitious reminder of what a game can be when it’s unafraid. – Joystiq
Deus Ex is, yet again, more than the sum of its parts, one of the most captivating games in years. It’s a title that’s far from perfect, however it’s a must-play for anyone who is passionate for great Sci-Fi stories and action games. – 3DJuegos
Invisible War has finally been atoned for… Deus Ex :Human Revolution is a wonderful step forward for cyberpunk RPG enthusiasts. – Ten Ton Hammer

Dark Souls

794670

It’s tragic that not all of us have the time or temperament to play through Dark Souls, but one truth remains clear: if you’re ready for it, it’s ready for you. – 1UP
From Software achieves one of the most addictive games this year. Dark Souls’ difficulty level can sound just as heavy as it is, but at the same time it’s enough to keep you engaged to its addictive gaming experience. – 3DJuegos
Get into the Dark Souls mindset and be prepared for repeated failure in one of the most engrossing gaming experiences available. – Gameplanet

Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword

Skyward Sword is an epic, the sort of epic you call out of work or school for a few days to complete. A focused playthrough will take you north of 30 hours, and if you try to 100% the game, there is a 50+ hour quest to go through. Throw in the second quest, dubbed Hero Mode, and there is a lot of game to play. – NintendoWorldReport
An exhilarating journey in every sense. Skyloft is an area you’ll want to explore and Skyward Sword is well worth the wait. Prepare to be amazed. – N-Europe
Overall, this is the best experience I’ve had playing a Zelda game since Ocarina of Time and I’d have to say they are pretty equal in my opinion. Either way, you won’t be disappointed getting this game, it’s a masterpiece. – Armchair Empire

LA Noire

LA NOIRE

Although L.A. Noire is great on both systems, it’s best on the PlayStation 3. With improved performance, better frame rate and an added case, this is certainly the version of the game to get. The strong cast of characters, compelling storyline and ambitious sense of scope makes this one of Rockstar Games’ best products yet. Just remember to switch to black and white! – Gaming Nexus
This is vastly different from the countless first- and third-person shooters and all the “me too” open-world games sitting on store shelves. All the things I’ve only read about in Dashiell Hammett novels, or seen in film classics like Double Indemnity, have all come to interactive life in L.A. Noire. – 1UP
L.A. Noire’s intriguing character profile, deep interrogation and investigation system, and impeccably detailed facial technology puts this detective thriller in a class of its own. – Playstation Universe
