gamescom 2011 has been and gone, with the Cologne event having attracted a record number of attendees. A lot of great games were on show this year, but we've managed to pick our top 10 and crown an overall winner.
There were several big revelations for SSX over the course of gamescom. RiderNet is perhaps the most important of these; the snowboarder's equivalent of Autolog. Combining leaderboards, ghosts and challenge recommendations, RiderNet will offer the most comprehensive social features of any extreme sports title to date. While EA's reboot didn't have a presence on the gamescom show floor, the magnitude of the new features earns it a place on our list.
