Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2011
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds" (360, PS3 --
Classic gameplay gets a shiny new coat of paint. After a decade-long wait since "Marvel vs.
Killzone 3" (PS3 --
The raging war between the
Pokemon Black" version and "White" version (DS --
The insanely popular Pokemon video game series enters its fifth generation, now featuring 156 all-new creatures to collect. Despite the familiar storyline, director
Dragon Age II" (360, PS3, PC --
The legendary RPG developer BioWare improves on "Dragon Age: Origins" in almost every way. Taking on the role of the fully voiced human Hawke, players can carve out their legend in "Dragon Age II" with a blank slate or transfer over game-changing decisions from the original. Hawke's battle for survival and epic rise to power takes place over a decade in a never before seen area called the Free Marches. Player decisions will greatly affect how the fine-tuned story unfolds thanks in part to a new dialogue wheel system, and the swords-and-sorcery combat looks to be more responsive and satisfying than ever before.
Crysis 2" (360, PS3, PC --
Crytek's "Crysis" made a big splash with its extremely lifelike graphics in
Portal 2" (360, PS3, Mac, PC --
Sharp, witty writing and ingenious platforming and physics-based puzzles return in this sequel to Valve's critically acclaimed sleeper hit of 2007. The abilities of the iconic Portal Gun will remain the same, but various physical effects will now bleed through portals, allowing for a wider range of puzzles and solutions. In addition to the single-player mode, "Portal 2" will feature a full cooperative campaign for two players. Both of the campaigns will be roughly double the length of the original, effectively quadrupling the geeky, mind-bending enjoyment all prospective human lab rats can look forward to.
Resistance 3" (PS3 -
Set in 1957 in the midst of an apocalyptic alien invasion, the next installment in the PlayStation-exclusive killer app first-person shooter series features a large variety of weapons, some new and some returning from previous games. In keeping with Insomniac Games' "Ratchet & Clank" pedigree, weapons will increase in power as they are used. Players taking on the role of disgraced protagonist
RAGE" (360, PS3, Mac, PC --
Set on a near-future Earth in the post-apocalyptic aftermath of a killer asteroid impact, "RAGE" seamlessly blends elements of first-person shooters, role-playing games, and vehicular combat games into something pleasingly reminiscent of "Fallout 3" and "Borderlands." As their first title since "Doom 3" to be completely developed in-house, I expect "RAGE" to add onto id Software's already impressive legacy.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" (PS3 -
Thanks in part to Naughty Dog's use of talented actors in both voice and motion capture roles, "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves" was universally acclaimed for blending
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" (360, PS3, PC --
In the newest installment of "The Elder Scrolls," players will be completely free to roam the entire world of Skyrim while completing main story quests and dynamically-generated side quests. Set two hundred years after Oblivion, players are caught between a deadly civil war and a dragon-god who seeks to destroy the world. Skyrim will run on a new in-house graphics engine, featuring more realistic weather effects and shadows and improved artificial intelligence. Highly accomplished soundtrack composer
