So, I guess a lot of people who read the editorial side of things figure it's me that writes the Savage Pixels columns... and it is...
This being the most recent one (Gears 3, F1 2011, Final Fantasy VII, more...) - http://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4143763-savage-pixels-4--gears-of-war-3-the-bumper-preview-special-best-game-ever
December's column is dedicated to the BEST GAMES OF 2011. I'd really like reader 'votes' on this. So, when you think you know what your favourite is, maybe post about it here, or under the article (or November's - there will be a more prominent GIVE ME YOUR OPINION notice), or even email email@example.com
For the record, I reckon Gears 3 edges it for me; although I'm yet to get my hands on Skyrim obviously. Arkham City is mega, but I'm yet to finish it... liked LA Noire a lot but didn't love it. Portal 2 was brilliant. Crysis 2 was spectacular in places.
(I won't be putting the BEST OF THE YEAR article together until the very end of November so there's loads of time to contribute - I do want to have reader opinions on there; rather than a list of 20 games I've rather arbitrarily ordered from number 7 down.)
