"You forgot..." Let us stop you there! This week we're revealing the Shacknews 'Staff Favorites,' which are titles that didn't quite make our 'Best of 2011' list. This week we'll also be revealing our Honorable Mentions, games that almost made our 'Top Five of the Year' (those are coming next week). If you see a game on this list, it means no amount of arguing, hair-pulling, or crying was enough to get it to be featured on our overall 'Best of' list. Let's agree to disagree! Despite that, these were great games in another stellar year of gaming.
Steve Watts posted a new article, Staff Favorites 2011: Steve's picks.
The Shacknews staff takes a moment to recognize some of the team's favorite titles that didn't quite crack our overall 'Best of 2011' awards. Next up is staff writer Steve Watts with his picks.
Bulletstorm reminds me of Blue Mountain State. If you think it's purile, unintelligent humour you were probably just too stupid to understand that the whole thing is satircal.
Hahaha. Great analogy. Also: BMS is great. I didn't like it at first, but it really grew on me after a few episodes. Hope it comes back for another season.
Dead Space franchise is incredible. For me it surpassed Resident Evil as my favorite game of horror, terror survival. I am looking forward to what becomes of the franchise. Heard there will be a film, of course another game and possibly another anime. I think the story should have been awarded in 2011. What other game out there has a deep story?
