Metacritic has released its annual list of top rated games, revealing that Batman: Arkham City on PS3 was the most critically acclaimed title of 2011. It beat out The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by a mouse's cock. 

Here's the full list, including their average Metacritic scores:

  1. Batman: Arkham City (PS3, 96)
  2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Xbox 360, 96)
  3. Portal 2 (PC, 95)
  4. Portal 2 (Xbox 360, 95)
  5. Portal 2 (PS3, 95)
  6. Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360, 94)
  7. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS, 94)
  8. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC, 94)
  9. Mass Effect 2 (PS3, 94)
  10. Minecraft (PC, 93)

All told, a fairly obvious set of games, but it's a bit annoying that it's more of a "top six" than a top ten. Also, I am personally surprised by Minecraft. How in the name of buggering Christ does somebody actually review that thing? Ah well.

Do you agree with this list, or are you OUTRAGED, SIR!?
