This is not a definitive list of the top selling or top rated games of the year, it is in fact a video that blends some of the best into a smooth running movie. This makes the games even more impressive, but the editing of the video is really responsible for that!
According to Malcolm Klock from www.twitter.com/malcolmklock this is what the video is all about;
2011 has been a watershed year for gaming in almost every way. With an overabundance of terrific AAA titles and creative low-budget indies, developers this year boldly took the medium into new territory. This is a salute to their work, and all the terrific interactive experiences we had in 2011.
