Deus-Ex-Human-RevolutionFollowing the list of the most anticipated games during the beginning of 2010, here is a consolidated list of the most anticipated games featured from several websites found in the Internet for the year 2011.

Seven of the games in the 2010 list have not been released (one though was released in Japan) and are listed here again. In fact, some of the games listed below were already released in Japan but not yet elsewhere (those with NA markings).

The game found on most website listings is Deus Ex: Human Revolution (pictured above), which will be released in XBox 360, Playstation 3 (PS3) and Windows sometime March 2011.

Other games that were prominently featured in many websites are Little Big Planet 2, Dead Space 2, Bulletstorm, Killzone 3, Dragon Age II, F.3.A.R aka F.E.A.R. 3, Crysis 2, L.A. Noire, Portal 2 (pictured below), The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rage, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Batman: Arkham City and Mass Effect 3.

Among the platforms, PS3 has the most games followed by XBox 360 and Windows. 3D games are now featured with the entry of the upcoming handheld device console Nintendo 3DS. Wii, Nintendo DS, Playstation Portable (PSP) and Mac have their own fair shares of anticipated games.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier are the games that will be released in the most platforms at six.

There are other games that are anticipated but with release dates that are not clear such as the next installments for Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto or that of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Many are hoping that these games will be at the stores this year.
