The Contenders:

Batman: Arkham City

Talked about as one of the best superhero games of all time, Batman: Arkham City is a stunning realization that kept players busily entertained with compelling missions, challenges, and side quests. Arkham City had it all - characters from the DC Universe lovingly crafted, an entertaining combat system, and an array of gadgets that could be used tactically to beat opponents or to solve environment-based puzzles. The beauty of Arkham City was that you could explore every nook and cranny at your leisure, soaring across the skyline and soaking up the atmosphere. Playing as Batman has never been so cool.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Naughty Dog surpassed itself with the third game in the Uncharted series, delivering an action adventure with a great narrative, likeable characters, and stunning setpieces across an incredible gameworld that burst out of the screen. Physics, visuals, and environmental effects played their part in creating perhaps the most attractive game to have ever graced the PlayStation 3, while its clever level design ensured that Nathan Drake’s signature moves, combat skills, and puzzle-solving chops were put to the test with a variety of enjoyable challenges. Script-writing was sharp, the soundtrack was rousing, and the pacing was spot-on. It’s no wonder Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception scooped an unprecedented amount of awards in 2011, from “Best Character” to “Best Graphics".
