2011 Jimmy Gems: and the winners are...

By: BatRastered Jan 5, 2012 | 4 Comments

Gouki.com gives you its favorite games of 2011, plus your votes.

Best PS3 Exclusive

inFAMOUS 2

BatRastered says: I played the first inFAMOUS because I got it for free on the PSN when they came back from the hacking debacle. It was probably the most fun I've had on the PS3 since I've owned one. Naturally when inFAMOUS 2 was released I had to play it. While it didn't leave the same impression on me that the original did, I still loved it. It's too bad the user generated content didn't live up to the hype.

GoukiJones says: I didn't play it. Well I actually I did, I beat the shit out of it at CES 2010. Exclusive! After that I wasn't really interested. I watched Batty play it a little and I still wasn't interested.

User's Choice: DC Universe Online

Most Disappointing

Brink

GoukiJones says: Wow! I couldn't have been more disappointed in myself after playing this game. I said it 2 years ago at E3 when I first played this game. "It felt stiff." Oh and it certainly was. 

BatRastered says: A game that goes from one of GoukiJones' most hyped games to us returning un-opened copies to Amazon in the space of a few hours has to be nominated. The movement was supposed to differentiate this game, I knew it was in trouble when the Crysis 2 came out and did the same thing (vaulting, etc).

User's Choice: Brink

Best Multiplayer

Battlefield 3

BatRastered says: The maps are huge, the shooting is spot on, and the environments are destructible. What a FPS multiplayer experience should be. I just wish they'd dumb down the helicopter flight controls so a Jimmy like me could fly them.

GoukiJones says: This is probably the best shooting experience I've ever played. The threat of realism in the game is amazing. Just last night I was standing on some stairs and a tank shot out the floor below me, the stairs and myself collapsed. Also the water tower fell on me last night. Vintage. Platoon up Jimmy!

User's Choice: Battlefield 3

Best Xbox 360 Exclusive

Gears of War 3

GoukiJones says: For the same reasons mentioned in the best multiplayer category, I love the Gears Campaign. Gears also has a fun story, great graphics and the shooting mechanics are spot on. But I didn't play the Multiplayer too much. Xbox needs more exclusive.

BatRastered says: This series is second only to Halo for the Xbox console. Read what I said in best multiplayer, it still holds here, plus a great campaign, great graphics and sound, not to mention a game that "just works" which unfortunately is actually a feature these days.

User's Choice: Gears of War 3

Best DLC

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack

BatRastered says: New maps, new game modes, new guns (and new ways to earn them) makes an already excellent MP shooter even better. Not to mention the fact that most of the issues present at launch are now history. Better yet, if you pre-ordered BF3, this expansion was free!

GoukiJones says: Harrier Jets! Are they Harriers? They float. The game modes are always welcome. Four new maps is great. Especially when I can remember these maps on old Battlefield games.

User's Choice: Battlefiled 3: Back to Karkand

Best Original Game

Anomaly Warzone Earth

GoukiJones says: I'm a big strategy gamer dude and when I heard the premise of Anomaly Warzone Earth, I knew I had to have a go. I played the shit out of this game for 3 days straight. Anomaly is a reverse tower defense game, so you control and upgrade the vehicles trying to get through the maze.

BatRastered says: Reverse tower defense... something new I guess. It looked cool from what I saw on GoukiJones' screen. Not my type of game, but original, yes.

User's Choice: Bastion

Best Game Not Released in 2011

Halo Wars

GoukiJones says: This year BatRastered got hooked on the Halo Wars. I have put over 500 hours in the game myself. Where the FUCK is Halo Wars 2?!

BatRastered says: Halo Wars has tons of staying power... mostly because there isn't a sequel and there's nothing else like it on the Xbox. The studio that made it has closed and several of the old employees created several new companies (none of which own the Halo IP of course) so we're probably screwed.

User's Choice: Halo Wars

Game of the Year

Batman: Arkham City

BatRastered says: Easily my most anticipated game of the year. Arkham Asylum was so good that its sequel couldn't possibly live up to the hype, and yet it did. I played through Arkham City twice (once on new game+) and enjoyed every minute of it. If anything, the combat was better than the original. The story was awesome and the voice acting top notch. This Batman had everything you could want in a single player experience. If they could only make it so you and your friends could go through as Batman, Robin, Catwoman, and Nightwing in a 4-player co-op, it'd probably be the best multiplayer too.

GoukiJones says: Played it on hard. Batman Arkham City was the best experience from start to finish for a complete game. It didn't break. There weren't any bugs. Batman AA also had spot on gameplay and controls. A great story. I only played through this once, but I know for sure it will be revisited in 2012. 

User's choice: Well, it's a 3-way tie right now, so why don't you go vote? In the meantime, you can see what FnJimmy has to say about Arkham City.

Jimmy Gems video game awards 2010 winners

By: BatRastered Dec 29, 2010 | 12 Comments

And the awards go to...

Most Disappointing Game

Final Fantasy XIV

BatRastered: Any game that sends you a letter apologizing for itself is a strong contender here. I mean, holy crap. I knew this game was trouble when goukijones couldn't get the benchmark program to run on a newish Windows 7 machine. It’s amazing that, even though I didn’t expect this game to be good at all, I was still very disappointed by what it turned out to be.

Goukijones: From the moment BatRastered explained that the benchmark program was trying to use DirectX 9 - from 10 years ago. To the letter I got from Square Enix that said "We fired everybody, We're very sorry, FF14 is still free." This is by far one of the biggest debacles in the history of video games. Square Enix went from 14 billion $$$ to 1 billion $$$ estimated earnings. Square Enix rushed FF14 out to try and capture an escaping market from WoW and FF11. Square Enix also tried to get a jump on other major MMO releases like DC Universe Online and the Star Wars The Old Republic. Also the most recent WoW update railed the FF14 sales. Because of all of this, Deus EX was "delayed", I say it's canceled. There's rumors that FF13 Versus or whatever those alleged spin-offs were called, have also been canceled. Kingdom Hearts III is never going to come out. Square Enix and it's fans are in for a rough 2011.
