And here it is, the moment the entire year has been leading up to- the big finale. 2011 has been a roller coaster ride. We saw a lot of ups, a few downs, a few games that will be remembered as some of the greatest ever as the years pass by, and a few that will be remembered too, but for the wrong reasons. Overall, though, 2011 was a great year for gaming, possibly the best in a long, long time. So here are our Best of 2011 nominations and winners. You may not agree with all of them, but that’s why we have a comments section!
