Shacknews '2011 Game of the Year' Recap

Shacknews 2011 'Game of the Year' awards have been revealed. Here's a recap of our selections along with a snazzy new video presentation for the awards.


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.

The Shacknews 2011 Game of the Year awards are based on a weighted scoring system between all staff writers and editors. Read all about how our GOTY voting process worked, here.

Shack Staff stories are a collective effort with multiple staff members contributing. Many of our lists often involve entires from several editors, and our weekly Shack Chat is something we all contribute to as a group.
