Yet another E3 flew by, and what a busy show it was! We got to check out some great upcoming titles, and there is plenty for gamers to look forward to this holiday season, and in the year to come! Our staff has once again voted, and we present our Top 10 games for E3 2011. It was tough to narrow down, so to avoid further fist fights, we are arranging our picks in purely alphabetical order.
Battlefield 3 will feature the maximalist combined arms battles that made the series popular across single-player, co-operative and multiplayer modes. It will reintroduce several elements absent from the Bad Company games, including fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC.

If there was the most emotionally involving game at E3, Infinite would have to be it. From a story, character, and setting perspective, there was nothing else quite like it. The gameplay is yet to be experienced, but given the other merits of the title that we saw during the demo, this is most definitely a game to look forward to.
When: Q2, 2012
A new engine means a ton of improvements, new conversation system, revamped AI, and satisfying combat. With the element of dragons and shout powers added to the mix, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is possibly the most exciting RPG to watch out for this fall. It offers plenty to be excited about, not just for series’ fans but all RPG players.
When: November 11, 2011
With Forza 4, Microsoft and Turn 10 look to continue developing their brand into a strong contender in the genre, this time by offering a host of new features and Kinect implementation. Forza Motorsport 4 looks like a title that will meet fan expectations in adding significant features to the franchise.

Metro Last Light looks to be like a very worthy sequel to 2033. It’s a title that aims to keep all the thrills and intensity of battling humans and mutants alike in the atmospheric world of Moscow underground. Improved stealth, new weapons, new enemies, and smarter AI are just a few things that fans can look forward to. Given the immense atmosphere and excellent visuals that were seen in the demo, Last Light looks to be a surefire hit for fans of the franchise.
When: Q4, 2012
