Here is a list of the top 5 games that are expected to evolve the gaming industry forever:

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings: This one is expected to be one of the top role-playing games of 2011 and will definitely pose as a threat to other titles of the same genre releasing this year. Developed by the Polish studio Projekt RED, the game was released in May for PC and will still have to wait for a fourth quarter Xbox 360 release.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution: The original Deus Ex was one of the finest video games of all time. Its successor Invisible War failed to create such an impact on gamers. So far the new game has seen many developments and a flexible character development. The story is gripping with lots of betrayal and conspiracy. The new game is a prequel and is set before the events of the first two.

Portal 2: A sequel to Portal is one of the most surprising events so far. The maniacal robot GlaDOS is back. The game has an attractive co-operative mode. Chell has been replaced by two robots in the two-player mode and each has a portal gun.

Battlefield 3: This is EA’s response to the Call of Duty series which has been at its zenith for a long time. The game has been provided with heavy graphics intentionally to make it more life-like. The storyline seems gripping and strong multiplayer modes make it even more attractive. This game will certainly try to diminish Activision’s success.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: The series’ last installment Black Ops became the best selling game of the generation and gamers are expecting more from the new one. Set in a World War 3 scenario, the game is sure to be expected with lot of expectations and a gripping storyline. The return of Soap will be one of the major selling points of the game.
