Best of 2011: Totally Random Awards, Pt. 2
by Allistair Pinsof

Go to any media outlet this week and they'll be trumping up their best-of-the-year list. We're not so different. However, I wanted there to be a place where staff could sound off on what trends, games, and ideas captured their interest (for better or worse) this year.

I asked all the Dtoid staff to provide a mini-rant in the form of a fake award. The results are a bit random. Today, we take a look at the stupidest moment in a game, overlooked gems, and the "best" Skyrim glitch in 2011.

What games' stories lack in substance is often made up with character. Like, actual characters. Although we often identify a franchise by its main protagonist, the smallest side character has just as much of an opportunity to work his or her way into our heart.

Despite being a year dominated by sequels, 2011 has left us with a wealth of memorable characters brought to life through winning dialogue and performances. Whether they are funny, mysterious, or just damn cool, these are the favorite new faces we got to know over the past 12 months.

Best of 2011: Industry Picks

You already know what we think about releases this year, and you'll know our Game of the Year pick soon enough. But, what about game developers? You know, the people that actually matter in this industry.

Not many game developers have the time to respond to a press email, not to mention play more than five games in a given year. Nevertheless, we brought together some of our friends and favorite developers and asked them to gush about their five favorite games and videogame-related things of 2011.

These are the five reasons you'll have to wait a couple extra months for their next project.
