TechSpot: Hot PC Games for the 2011 Holidays

Twenty-ought eleven is coming to a rapid conclusion and game makers are preparing to cash in on the holiday season by unleashing some of the year's finest titles. Although some of our most anticipated games wound up being duds on some level (Brink, Crysis 2, Duke Nukem Forever, Homefront, to name a few), there's still hope for the tailgunners of 2011.

In keeping with tradition, we've assembled a list of 16 PC games that should be on your radar for the frigid months ahead. Titles are ordered by their North American PC release date -- no earlier than September 15 and no later than December 31. Again, realize this is covering PC entries only, so don't be surprised by the lack of major console exclusives such as Gears of War 3 or Uncharted 3.

Obviously you seem to not enjoy continuing good games and would rather have "fresh" stuff all the time...

Well, as it seems, we seem to think differently.

Rocksmith FTW! I'm still waiting for it to be released here in Europe. Hardly anyone will play it, but I don't care; it looks like a great way to learn the guitar, a bit like how Synthesia is a great way to learn to play piano or keyboard (the main difference being that you're limited to the songs on the disc in Rocksmith + DLC, whereas Synthesia will use pretty much any MIDI file available, and you can get millions for free).

Don't forget some of the cheaper titles and free to play ones!

I really hope Old Republic is good because it sure looks like the opposite of fun if you've already played a handful of hotkey spam mmos

Pepople are really raving about the new Rayman Origins game too

And I just saw the commercial for the new NFS game.. looks awesome!
