QSF5’s GOTY 2011 Day 2 of 3

goty-2011-logoDay two of three has arrived and it answers this important question:

Which 2011 games did I find shockingly good and shockingly not-so-good?

Well read on, friend. The answer awaits you!

Most Disappointing Game of 2011

Self explanatory.

Winner: Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (PS3)


Capcom vs SNK 2 is my favorite of the VS series of Capcom fighting games. I never appreciated any of the other VS games like it. The original Marvel vs Capcom was close though.

I thought Marvel vs Capcom 3 was going to be less frantic than it ended up being and I was hoping there was going to be more effort put forth in the other modes surrounding it — like in Super Street Fighter IV or Mortal Kombat.

All hardcore fighting game fans only really care about the core game, but I’m not a hardcore fighting game player. I need a bit more than just the mechanics.

I also couldn’t believe Capcom would release a revision of the game at $39.99 in the same calendar year. That move alone sours me on Capcom fighting games in the foreseeable future. Sorry, Street Fighter X Tekken.

Runner-up: L.A Noire

Nova is a Marvel character. That’s all I know about the fellow.

Phoenix Wright? He’s a lawyer from a series of awesome adventure games. The Ace Attorney franchise is on one of my all time favorite franchises, so it’s awesome to see him in a game like Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. He may not be the usual fighter, but Capcom made it work.
