Forums - Gaming Discussion - Your Top 50 Games: 2011 Discussion Thread

Shoot, I didn't realize how many days I missed, time To catch up.

42. Trace Memory (DS)
You play as Ashley, a 13 year old who's parents vanished years ago. A few days before her 14th birthday, Ashley receives a package containing a mysterious machine and a note from her Father. Following the Notes instructions, you arrive at Blood Edward Island, and set out on a search for your Father. Along the way you encounter a variety of puzzle that take advantage of the DS' capabilities. The game has a great story, and it really showed off every feature of the DS.

41. Kirby's Dreamland (VC)
While Kirby may not have his signature copy ability, Dreamland is still a blast to play. The normal game is way too easy, but unlocking the Hard mode is where the fun really is.

40. Gabrielle's Ghostly Grooves (3DS)
Gabrielle has sneezed out her soul, and the only way to get back to her body is by dancing. The characters are wonderful, and the rhythm sequences are fun to play. By playing through the songs you earn human screams, which act as the games currency. Earn enough screams and you'll get your body back. The only problem I had with the game was the length of the dialogue. As great as the writing is, there is just so much text to read through to get to the next song.

39. Samba De Amigo (Wii)
A catchy Latin-Pop soundtrack and fun Rhythm game play make this game amazing. Even if the controls aren't 100% accurate, I still love playing it.

38. Just Dance 3 (Wii)
Holding the Wii Remote in your right hand, just follow the on screen prompts and dance along to the 45 included tracks. A variety of dance modes keep things interesting.

37. Lost Winds: Winter of the Melodias (Wiiware)
Adding to Lost Winds elemental game play, you'll unlock new wind powers as you set out to save the Summer Falls moutain Village, which is trapped in an eternal Winter. The art direction is stunning, and the controls work even better than in the fisrt game.

#37. Blaster Master (NES, VC)

75% tank riding, 25% top down shooting, 100% fun, that's what Blaster Master is about. It's also about a boy stupid enough to brave a horde of enemies just to save his frog. Although, I'd be tempted to do the same if I stumbled unto a tank that can jump, shoot multi-colored bullets and homing missiles and calls down lighting from the sky.

As you progress through the game you tank gains more abilities allowing you to get from level to level. While this may sound simple, it really isn't. The game never tells you where to go and finding the door to the next part can be a very difficult task but I think it is part of why I enjoyed the game so much.

One last note to anyone who would like to try the game on Virtual Console. This game is hard, very hard. I've never finished it, I've gotten close but ran out of lives before the end. I do plan to get through it one day.



Signature goes here!

#37 - Left 4 Dead 2 (360/PC)


Really addictive and enjoyable, though ultimately lacking in long term replay value (disagree with Runa here) because of the lack of content. The graphics are showing their age, and they really need to start creating proper storylines to make these games feel less hollow. It's a great sequel though, improving on almost everything in the original, and also includes the sexiest male character in any videogame, ever.

My buddy Keith tried camping out on top of a building once. He was shooting crows, but the police were too busy teargassin' him to ask what he was doin' up there. He screamed for an entire year every single time he opened his eyes! Oh, man! At first, it was funny; then it just got sad, but then it got funny again

I loved this game, but it would never make my top 100. Left 4 Dead 2 barely improved upon Left 4 Dead. Honestly I felt Valve half assed Left 4 Dead 1 and gave us half a game, with a severe lack of content. Left 4 Dead 2 is what L4D1 should have been, and L4D2 should have been a lot more.

37 for me is Destruction Derby 2 

I can't believe I used to think the damage in this game was good. No wonder I loved burnout so much since.

For its time, I'd say it was as good as you were going to get.



PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.

Another game that really surprised me this year. Its' story was addicting and the gameplay mechanics (escpecially the stealth gameplay) worked incredibly well.

This is my 38.

This is fun for some reason I am excited to go home and put my next game though I doubt anyone is even paying attention :P


Always wanted to play that game,it picked my attention since I saw it on a games magazine. Im a sucker for 2D isometric graphics XD



Amazing strategy RPG game though it has probably aged to the point of unplayable nowadays. Sorry to hear you missed it.



My 37 is Star Wars: Rogue Leader for GC. I would say that this is definitely the best game based upon the original trilogy.

Could anyone name some other contenders? I'll grant i never touched the Battlefront series...



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
