    I agree with almost everything! Great list! I lost every shred of respect I had for Gamespot this year because of their ridiculous nominations, but Gamingbolt seems to be giving credit where credit is due.

    I think you guys need to proofread this article, that image you took from “dark souls” in the category for hardest game, was actually an image from demon’s souls, the adjudicator to be exact. I also wasn’t a fan of your guy’s picks for some other categories either but i guess to each their own, right?

    • Ophelia

      I agree about the graphics, have you owned the ps3 vosiren? I’ve heard there is some framerate problems? Im a ps3 gamer and i wish to buy this game but if there is framerate issues then i shall buy it for my pc, please reply

    Way to ruin Dom’s death for me. This is why I stay away from your site – I mean for F#$K sake! You could at least hide the spoilers and warn people. I am waiting to get the chance to play through Gears and here you twits go ruining pieces of it.

    Nice job. Now piss off.

    Thanks for the spoiler on Gears 3 ending, you dumb dickheads.

    MineCraft the best Indie game of 2011
    So many people love it, and how can you forget it???

    Lots of the things on this list weren’t this year… Also, Deus Ex and AC:R got way too much love. Also, Crysis 2 doesn’t have that great of textures. Lastly, no mention of minecraft.

    In other words, between all of these things this list is more or less worthless.

  • http://Website wtf?

    that is not dark souls on that pic. thats demon’s souls ;)

    … i see u guys know ya shit :D

      Sure the PC version looks ebtter than any console version but it’s still the same graphics but alot more polished and draw distance is ebtter. So for me it’s insane how anyone could spend so much money for a PC that has the same graphics as the console. If this game was developed for the PC only and the game engine was made only for the PC this game would look much more differently.
