IGN have asked the Australian gaming public to cast their votes on the best retail game of 2011. Not surprising really the votes showed what most best-of lists of 2011 offered; the best game was Mass Effect 2.

Other games were able to get a look in with Call Of Duty: Black Ops getting best online/multiplayer game. Best visuals – Red Dead, best newcomer – Heavy Rain. Others to get a mention include best downloadable title which went to Limbo, best handheld – Ghost of Sparta. Mass Effect 2 was also also given the best story line of 2011 to complement it’s game of the year trophy.

The numbers were compiled from over 5000 votes, with Mass Effect 2 a clear winner. Narayan Pattison, publishing director of IGN said “I think it’s more about critically selecting games and holding up what’s the best game, instead of the game that sold the most,”. He went on to discuss the over all winner, “It has an incredibly memorable cast. Without spoiling it, I think the ending blew a lot of people away,”.

Well another blue ribbon for Bioware, with what seems to have been the best game in history. Well done.
