TSA’s Top 100 Games of 2011 – The Top 100

One in a hundred.

You asked and we listened. And before the whole thing becomes completely redundant, we thought we’d listen sooner rather than later. So, here you go. The complete Top 100 from start to finish.

As before, we’ve added the “top secret mouse-over text” from the articles’ banner images as something extra. You already caught them all, though, right? Right?! Oh, and yes, the ‘gag’ only really works in conjunction with the image it accompanies.

Apologies for the delay, but I really couldn’t bring myself to type the words “Top 100″ again after my psychic-break at the start of this year. That said, we’d be doing ourselves a disservice (!) if we didn’t present the list in its entirety. Enjoy.

    I am looking forward to several of these games in the top 100. Hopefully they all meet my expectations and are as good as they want.

        Well that’s what you expect, when most of the voters, use PS3 as their main gaming-system.

        Personally I agree with many of them, but titles like Diablo 3, Hitman 5 (Not 2011, sorry guys), Dragon Age 2 and Far Cry 3 would had made my top25, pushing titles like Journey, ICO/Shadow of the Colossus Collection , Starhawk, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and Mirror’s Edge 2.

        Off course the “missing titles” like Mass Effect 3, Half-Life 2 EP3 (Q4 2011 not unlikely … I HOPE!) and Black Mesa (Even though it’s only a mod) would also be in my top25… yeah I’m a Half-Life fanboy :)

    A work of epic proportions, and a really strong illustration of what’s coming this year.

    It’s a lot easier to keep track of them all now, agree with most of the list, I think R:3 and Batman should be higher but this is a vote, not one man’s opinion which makes it impartial so I guess it’s fair, nice work TSA, I know how much work you all must have put into this ;-).
