OXCGN’s Game Of The Year Awards 2011
Did the VGAs get it wrong?

For many of us the VGAs were a bit underwhelming.
Which games stood head-n-shoulders above the others?
We had new announcements in the form of new ‘post-apocaliptic’ zombie survival type games (sigh), and new footage of some upcoming games that look either very promising (Bioshock Infinite, Hitman Absolution) or incredibly silly (Metal Gear Rising: Revengance, or as I call it: Devil May Rise: Cryvengance).
Then we had the idiocy that made our gaming industry look even more puerile with ‘tea bagging’ those whose speech went a little long and bad jokes. Are we still all supposed to be childish teens? Or am I just getting way too old for such ‘humour’?
Anyway, for the last week or so we at OXCGN have been nominating and tallying our own Game Of The Year Awards for 2011.
If last year was the year of the sequel, this year was the year of the three-quel (Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Resistance 3, Dungeon Siege 3, Serious Sam 3…I’m sure there are others…).
These are just our individual opinions scored together using a complex mathematical formula involving each of us picking a Top 3 and scoring them with a 5, 3 or 1. I’m sure the VGAs had a much more sophisticated methodology…
Without any more rambling, here are OXCGN’s Game Of The Year Awards for 2011.
