XCOM Features for Xbox 360

On: Xbox 360PS3PC

It's not until you throw them all together in one list that you realise what a stonking year 2011 is looking for games. We originally intended on this being a list of twenty, but couldn't bring ourselves to publish it with so many notable omissions. Even with thirty we're still guilty about a few absentees, but it's still a very good looking list indeed. Join us then, as we take a look at the games that will define 2011. Here's 20 through to 11.

20. inFamous 2 – PS3

inFamous 2 will be to inFamous what Uncharted 2 was to Uncharted. That's the hope, anyway. With a new city, new actors and performance capture – the same technology that gave Uncharted 2 such high calibre cutscenes – this is another sequel that looks vastly superior to its predecessor. 2011 will see Cole MacGrath return with a bevy of new moves, a new weapon known as the Amp, and – fingers crossed – some new powers to go alongside his lightning abilities.

Sentinel is there so there is no chance i'm getting it, it's going to be like MvC2 and be unbalanced and exploitable as hell.

Erm... am I forgetting 10 awesome games for 2011 because I've seen about 90% of my most anticipated games already.
I suppose there's Uncharted , Skyrim and Portal 2... but I'm blanking on anything else?

Skyrim will be there. I assumed these wouldn't be in order, but it looks like they are. Which is good because Skyward Sword is in the top 10. We already know it will be game of the year. Actually, that's an idea, brb.

I'm surprised I'm not seeing much interest in Marvel vs Capcom 3. I thought everyone here loved Street Fighter IV, so I'd assume MvC3 would be something you'd enjoy too.

Skyrim should be on the list too.

Man this year is going to be sensational for gaming.

My personal ones to watch out for are as follows.

1. Bulletstorm (Looks to be one of the most enjoyable and epicerist FPS games of this generation)

2. Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception

3. Resistance 3 (I personally loved Resistance 2, I feel they nailed the alien invasion quite nicely)

4. Gears of War 3

5. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (My nintendo 64 doesn't work anymore so i seriously want to revisit my childhood favourite)
