Tech-Out conducted a highly unscientific poll of its team of contributors to name 2011’s best game, and “Batman: Arkham City” took the top prize.
Current and former staffers for The Sun and Inland Valley Daily Bulletin newspapers comprised the majority of our panel. We don’t get to cover games full time (I spend most of my days as a business reporter), but we like games and like to share our opinions on which titles are worth playing .
As for Arkham City, here’s what contributor Reggie Carolipio, who also reviewed the title, had to say:
Arkham Asylum resurrected the Dark Knight’s career in gaming in much
the same way that Christopher Nolan’s Batman resurrected his
onscreen legend, and Arkham City delivered even more high-flying
crimebusting and street-level beat downs than its predecessor.
Squeeze in a who’s who of bad guys ranging from the Penguin to
Two-Face, a host of storied side missions, the Riddler, and Arkham
City isn’t so much of a sequel as it is a new chapter in the Caped
We liked other games, too. The runners up are after the jump.
