It took us two weeks to reveal, but the Shacknews Game of the Year awards for 2011 have been laid to rest, with CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings taking the crown.
We didn't have the time to set up a reader poll for 'Best of 2011,' but our community did create their own; naming The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim the Unofficial Shacknews Community GOTY.
After the break is a listing of our 'Best of 2011' winners and honorable mentions along with a video presentation featuring the top five.
