Best Action/Adventure Game Winner 2011

Out of the jungles and mountaintops of the first two games, Drake heads to the desert in his most intense adventure yet. Once again, the story comes back around to Sir Francis Drake—who may or may not be a direct ancestor of Nate—and the ring Nate wears around his neck.

This time, though, we are shown quite a bit more of the back story of characters we've known and loved since the series began, as well as being introduced to the cunning Katherine Marlowe and her deadly henchman Talbot. Uncharted 3 is a thrill ride that pleases on so many levels that both longtime fans and those new to the series will find plenty to enjoy in this title.

Our spoiler-free review has more details.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Box Art

Skyward Sword introduces us to a pre-princess Zelda and her childhood friend Link. As a story set before any of the other Zelda games, we get to see what these characters were like before their names were written across history. When all is said and done, this is an incredible adventure that's not to be missed by Nintendo fans and Wii owners.
