Games to watch out for in 2011...

A Listmania! list by Todd A. Weisenburg "Programmer / Long time gamer" (Lancaster, NY USA)
The list author says: "The long awaited sequel to my first listmania video game list takes us to 2011, along with some no doubt hot releases getting in stores along the year with a couple of very nice surprises as well (ie. Duke Nukem Forever). *Note : I tried to include titles that were shoe-in 2011 releases, a few games didn't make the cut for this particular list because of their still TBD nature."
Duke Nukem Forever - PC
1.  Duke Nukem Forever - PC by 2K
The list author says:
  "If you're a Duke fan then you've no doubt followed the ups and downs of Forever's development over the years so I'll spare you the details. What I would like to recommend though is checking out the newest trailer if you haven't yet, which shows extensive new gameplay and a May release date. FPS lovers rejoice!"
$5.12   Used & New from: $0.38
2.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (243 customer reviews) | 20 customer discussions

Gears of War 3
2.  Gears of War 3 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Originally planned for a Spring release date but it has since been pushed back to a Fall release. Have no fear though because Epic games plans to bring the trilogy to a close with another grand co-op campaign (with more players) and new game modes."
$11.98   Used & New from: $3.57
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (893 customer reviews) | 247 customer discussions

Batman: Arkham City for Xbox 360
3.  Batman: Arkham City for Xbox 360 by Warner Bros
The list author says:
  "More villains, grander surroundings, and more emphasis on detectiving (alright, so it's not a word...) among other things up the ante from Arkham Asylum's epic beginning."
$18.39   Used & New from: $3.94
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (512 customer reviews) | 70 customer discussions

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Playstation 3
4.  Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment
The list author says:
  "Among the grade-A PS3 cream of the crop, the Uncharted series has always delivered. Here's to hoping we actually get full-fledged co-op within the story this time around as well..."
$13.95   Used & New from: $3.17
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,088 customer reviews) | 179 customer discussions

Mass Effect 3 - Xbox 360
5.  Mass Effect 3 - Xbox 360 by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "Still working through the games myself, but after seeing the reception of the first 2 games there is no doubt that the third is on alot of people's anticipated lists."
$17.89   Used & New from: $3.99
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,800 customer reviews) | 180 customer discussions

6.  Portal 2 - PC by Valve

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (365 customer reviews) | 33 customer discussions

L.A. Noire - Xbox 360
7.  L.A. Noire - Xbox 360 by Rockstar Games
The list author says:
  "Visually fantastic facial animations and environments, go check out some of the trailers so far if you haven't already. I've been watching this one for awhile now and I can't wait to see what comes out of this detective story..."
$12.49   Used & New from: $3.75
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (431 customer reviews) | 61 customer discussions

Killzone 3 - Playstation 3
8.  Killzone 3 - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment
The list author says:
  "Another one of those Playstation staples, if you're an FPS lover and haven't touched the Killzone series yet then get on it fast. The third takes place right where the second left off as the Helghan war is heating up."
$19.19   Used & New from: $4.25
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (477 customer reviews) | 127 customer discussions

Rage - Xbox 360
9.  Rage - Xbox 360 by Bethesda
The list author says:
  "Id software's post-apocalyptic shooter/combat racer is almost upon us. If Id's previous long running history (Doom and Quake, among others) is any indication then you're gonna want to check this out."
$13.43   Used & New from: $3.00
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (355 customer reviews) | 78 customer discussions

Max Payne 3 - Xbox 360
10.  Max Payne 3 - Xbox 360 by Rockstar Games
The list author says:
  "I couldn't end my 2011 list without mentioning my favorite series, Max Payne. Rockstar games is taking the helms for the third iteration so I'm intrigued to see where they take it..."
$11.94   Used & New from: $0.01
