Game of the Year 2011 - Console Awards

Find out what games of 2011 best represented the current consoles on the market.

After yesterday's Genre Awards, today we bring you the biggest and best of the year for each of the respective consoles, as well as the best downloadable title of the year, irrespective of the platform it was released. Unlike last year's awards, we didn't segregate multiplatform titles - these were considered alongside the exclusives on each system. Welcome to day two of the...

After going through the process of voting, one thing became abundantly clear to the staff here at PixlBit - this was a phenomenal year for games. Around each and every corner, we struggled to pick our winners, and it showed in the results. Very few games ran away with the award; nearly every award was a struggle for victory.

With each staff member offering up their top three in each category, it opened up the stage for a wide variety of titles. While not everything charted, with our Winner, Runner Up, and Honorable Mention selections, we've hopefully given a nod to all games of note from the year.

I speak on behalf of the staff when I say that we're very happy with the results and are glad to present them to the masses. Remember, we value your opinions and we encourage you to weigh in with your choices in the comment section!

Wow. I completely agree with this one. That never happens with these things. Great job.

Also, and I think I've mentioned this before, I want to play Bastion on the 3DS very, very badly. I might take Jason up on his suggestion and email the devs about that.

Nice to see Outland mentioned. I loved that game. I need to play more handheld games. Only played Okamiden so far from this year on handhelds. I am still working on finishing it too.

A Fond Farewell to Final Fantasy XI

Now that we are firmly entrenched in the 8th console generation and PC gaming is back on the rise, you would be forgiven for not hearing about the server shut down of the final game from the 6th generation: Final Fantasy XI. Even though the PC version released first and remains active to this day, the game began as an ambitious project for the PlayStation 2, and finally closed its PS2 and Xbox 360 doors on March 31, 2016. While it wasn’t the first massively multiplayer online role playing game to make its way to consoles (Everquest Adventures on the PS2 has that distinction), it was the entry point for many gamers into the world of the MMORPG. I was there for the final days of Final Fantasy XI on the console (I had been playing it on the Xbox 360 in recent years), and it was a bittersweet farewell, indeed.
