2011 Nodie Awards – Best of 2011

2011 Nodie Awards Logo

GamerNode’s 2011 Nodie Awards are back and, once again, bigger than ever. We’re even outdoing our monstrous 2010 Nodies!

For 2011, we ‘ll be bestowing a grand total of 35 awards, and will be splitting the virtual ceremony into two separate sections: “Special Honors” and “Best Of 2011.” The latter of the two includes the coveted honor of GamerNode Game of the Year. Each individual award will highlight the five nominees the GN staff felt were most worthy of recognition, and then reveal our esteemed winner and runner-up.

Additionally, keep on the lookout for a special VS Node Podcast in which some of the GN staff will discuss our top games of the year in even greater depth, as a companion show to the 2011 Nodies.

Please feel free to chime in via our comments section here on the site, on Facebook, and on Twitter using the #NodieAwards hashtag. We always love to hear from you and to talk games together.

Best of 2011

Continuing where we left off on Tuesday, today we’re bringing you the best of the best: the best in genre, the best on specific platforms, and of course the granddaddy of them all, GN’s 2011 Game of the–

Wait! We’re saving that particularly special Nodie for early next week when our VS Node Games of the Year podcast will go live for your listening pleasure. For now, enjoy 15 games (well, one’s actually a publisher) that have been crowned kings of their respective hills, out-manning, -matching, -running, and -gunning all of the competition.

Amid the discussions about the following categories were some of the toughest decisions for the GamerNode staff during this year’s Nodies deliberation, frequently coming down to tie-breaking votes and eloquent appeals for consideration. In the end, though, these are the Best of 2011.

Stay tuned for the GamerNode Game of the Year Nodie Award and Games of the Year podcast in the days to come.

    WWE 12 beat out WWE All Stars? Absolute hogwash.

      Yeah, we loved All-Stars, and some consider it more fitting for the “fighting” genre, but WWE 12 did a great job at pushing the sim side of pro wrestling, and felt deserving of the nomination.

      It was a question whether or not to include a wrestling game here at all, actually.
