2010 was a great year for gaming and we already have our own people choice for the Game of the Year running, so make sure you check that out. There are hardly a few days remaining for 2010 and 2011 will be upon us in no time. I know it’s very early to predict what will be the Game of the Year for 2011, But here are eight very strong candidates that may be crowned Game of the Year in 2011.
Note: A probability meter is mentioned in the article for each game, which indicates the chances of the game winning. Also this list might not have mentioned your favorite game, but you can always list that in the comments below.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Probability: 9/10

Uncharted 2 swept every major award back in 2009 and the third entry in the series is already looking very strong. This time supporting 3D, Naughty has a tough task of bettering what they did with Among Thieves. But judging by the initial screens, Uncharted 3 is already looking as good as or even better than Uncharted 2. We hope to see more of the game in 2011 and undoubtedly this is a huge contender for the Game of the Year 2011.

Gears of War 3

Probability: 9/10

Right up there with Uncharted 3 is Epic’s and Microsoft’s biggest franchise this generation. The third iteration in the hugely popular Gears of War franchise will hit on Xbox 360 next fall. Featuring four player co-op and a mind boggling single player campaign, Gears of War 3 will look to stun crowds in 2011. Gears of War 2 was a stunning achievement and just like Naughty Dog, Epic Games too have a daunting task of bettering the previous installment.

Crysis 2

Probability: 8/10

Selecting Crysis 2 was a pretty tough choice for me since there are tons of shooters coming around next year. I think Crysis 2 could eventually do better than any other shooter on the market and this means a lot since the competition is in the form of cracking games like Killzone 3, Bulletstorm, Bioshock Infinit and may be Halo 4 and a new Call of Duty Game. The recent screens suggest that this is going to be a visually stunning game and I really hope it will deliver the game play to match it.

Mass Effect 3

Probability: 8/10

Mass Effect 2 is a prime example on how a role playing game. In fact I would go ahead and say that Mass Effect 2 is the pinnacle of video gaming in 2010. Officially announced recently at the Video Game Awards 2010, Mass Effect 3 is scheduled to hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC Fall 2011. You character will get affected on what decisions you took in Mass Effect 2 as well as the original Mass Effect. It will be very interesting to see how that pans out.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    why is elder scrolls only a 6 i would think that it has just as good a chance as uncharted 3 considering oblivion was game of the year and one of the most groundbreaking titles ever to come out…… in my opinion.

  • Rob

    you can’t say uncharted 3 has a better chance just because uncharted 2 won last year and is more relevant sorry to go all fanboy and yes i do own both consoles

  • yodathe3rd

    I can say that Uncharted 3 might be in the game of they year or i think there are so many games that can be in that list like skyrim and i think dead space 2 might make it in that list somewhere as well.

  • No Battlefield 3?? I dont sweat it though, you guys probably just forgot in the process. Nobodys STUPID enough not to see it as a contender.

  • and rage??????

  • Why not the witcher 2 ??

  • Skyrim gets a lower rating then Zelda?!!
    The graphics of oblivion were amazing and the gameplay even better.
    Fallout 3 was also a great succes for bethesda.
    I don’t know if you guys have watched the 14 min demo of the E3, but it seems that skyrim is going to be even better than the previous bethesda games. Skyrim deserves an eight or at least a seven.

  • its mortal kombat 9 fools

  • Me

    I think Skyrim deserves a 9!
    come on, Morrowind was an awesome game, Oblivion was an awesome game, and if you see the E3 demo of Skyrim you can see how awesome it is gonna be!

  • max

    so you think the legend of zelda skyword sword has the same chance to be game of the year as skyrim. ok. and what about battlefield 3, saints row the third, deus ex:human revelution and call of duty:modern warfare 3. by the way mass effect 3 comes in 2012 so it cant be game of the year of 2011

  • skyward sword should get it. took six years to make, first game to take motion plus to its full potential. best zelda game to date. best music for any video game series. fully orchestrated soundtrack. 100 hours to completely finish the game. excellent art style. gameplay is just always fantastic.
    sure skyrim has more gameplay hours, but how many of those hours are just traveling or really slow moving sections of the game. skyward sword never stops excitement.

  • Skyrim should be nummber 1 on game of the year and nummber 1 most wanted game of the year.

  • ea

    Skyward Sword is gonna win

  • skyrim is for me already the big winner. By a LONG shot. played it 50 hours in 2 weeks.

  • how to hell can you give skyrim a 6 and portal a 7?!!!!! COMON USE YOUR BRAIN!!!!! tfuck people!
