December: Finish Skyward Sword (almost done with it). Receive Mario Kart 7 for Christmas.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

I will say that the Wii is not doomed. You could technically say that about all systems eventually. Yes eventually the wii will be doomed as well.

I was very impressed with Zelda Skyward Sword.

Gear of War 3 was my fav. Non Nintendo game.

PSP is doomed.

If you listen to reviews and fanboys everything is so great. If you're not blind you'll see that 2011 was full of mediocrity. The best games were just good with glaring flaws that held them back.

Developer of the year: NAUGHTY DOG
