Best Shooter of 2011


Shooters, there is not every a shortage is the category, and it does usually involve some great games.  So without further time wasting I give you our nominee list for Best Shooter of 2011:

Battlefield 3
Modern Warefare 3
Gears of War 3
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine
Resistance 3
Kill Zone 3
Fear 3
Dead Space 2

OK, maybe our list is a little long for shooter of the year, but there were a lot of games that we felt did a good job.  Alas there can only be one winner, and after much arguing the award goes to Battlefield 3.  Despite a lack luster campaign the multiplayer pulled this game to the fore front. 

But there was one unexpected game that game in close enough that we decided to give it an honorable mention.  That goes Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. An unlikely choice for second place, but we enjoyed it greatly and felt that it deserved at least a mention.
