The People Speak: Predict 2011
Posted on Sunday, March 27 @ 12:16:37 PST by Daniel BischoffIt's hard to believe how fast this year has moved. We've flown past three months of 2011. We've had several great releases and even a hardware launch. What could possibly top all that in the next 9 months?
"Pokemon Black & White, Duke Nukem Forever, Gears of War 3, Batman: Arkham City, the list goes on. I think the biggest hyped game for the 360 is going to be Gears of War 3," wrote UghRochester. "But, I'm leaning toward Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or Batman: Arkham City [for Game of the Year]."
"My immediate thought was for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to top it all this year," concurred MattAY. "I'm actually predicting Duke Nukem to be a bit of a fail. The actual gameplay in the trailer looks awful and the only flaccid reason I would buy it is for the humour in it (shake it baby)."
"Akrham City, LA Noire, Elder Scrolls V, and Mass Effect 3 are some real big heavy hitters that could run away with everything this year," wrote NickKmet. "I wouldn't be surprised though this year if a few new indie games manage to steal the industry spotlight. Perhaps another Minecraft kind of game that blows away industry expectations?"
"I think the new Zelda is going to turn a lot of heads. Everyone was up in arms when they saw that Wind Waker was cell-shaded. A lot of people doubted Miyamoto and were quick to dismiss the game. It turned out to be an awesome game because Miyamoto almost never disappoints," reminded Rakon.
"After Duke Nukem: Forever hits shelves, Gearbox will announce Duke Nukem: Eternity, the next game in the franchise," wrote Tyrranis. What Tyrranis didn't say was that the game will force Gearbox and two other well-known studios to shutter their windows and doors.

I'm sure plenty of picked up control pads with equal passion and fervor, but what was your first handheld platform? Was it a Game Boy or were you that one kid with a Game Gear that you had to have plugged into the wall to play? Let us consider the pathetic existence that was the child with an N-Gage. Tell us your handheld story."
