    dtoiddisco BritToid Episode 22: Keep Calm and Look Back at 2011

    Oh Hey there!

    In the latest episode of BritToid, we look back at some of the good parts (and bad parts) of last year and discuss games through a bunch of different categories. It proved to be quite a fun discussion, so we wanted to throw it out to the community.

    So in 2011, what was your....

    Britain has Podcasts!?

    Since I played few games released in 2011 but played many games for the first time in 2011, not all of these are 2011 releases.

    Most Pretentious Game
    Battlefield 3

    Best (or worst) Box Art
    Arkham City! While I owned it I had the Joker Steelbook. SO PRETTY.

    Best Game No One Played
    Blocks That Matter

    Best Soundtrack and/or Song
    Portal 2, and Want You Gone. Easy one really. RDR has good sounds too though.

    Most Disappointing
    For me personally, Portal 2.

    Biggest Surprise
    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I played it for the first time in late 2011 and was surprised by how good a campaign it was compared to all the pathetic attempts to imitate it that I played over the years.

    Best British Studio & Game
    Batman: Arkham City!

    Best Game of 2011
    Hard one. Every 2011 release I played had significant issues for me. Portal 2 lacked the singleplayer puzzlement joy and replayability that the first game brought to me, Arkham City was marred by a convoluted plot and that feline online pass, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary had an unwelcome chunk of Halo Reach dropped onto the disc in a contrived manner.

    Since the last one can be avoided and the otherwise fantastic HD remake enjoyed untainted, I will have to say Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. Yup.

    Only games I bought in 2011 were Portal 2 and Skyrim. Oh and Brotherhood which came out in 2010.

    I'll just agree with Aurain even though I've never had a chance to play Dark Souls.

    You put euphemisms in your tea? That's despicable.
