Good year for videogames?

Dragon Age 2 is getting attention in another thread. I'll start there and call it a bullet point.
Crysis 2 has a thread. No replies but I assume it's because you're all too amazed to speak.
Battlefield 3 is also coming and it looks incredible as well.
Then there's Skyrim; Elder Scrolls 5
Last I heard there's still an outside chance we'll see Zelda: Skyward Sword in 2011
And then there's Duke Nukem Forever due in May. No really. For real this time.
Remember - even Chinese Democracy finally got a release.
Mass Effect 3
Guild Wars 2
And Kid Icarus!
But then there's the new stuff too.
Nintendo has been wowing people with the 3DS. I'm not a huge 3D fan but I have to admit that part of my muted excitement has always been due to the need for glasses. The 3DS changes that - and that's enough to get me interested.
And Rift seems like it might have the goods to challenge WoW. Blasphemy? I'm speaking as an outsider here but it seems to me that the time is ripe for a big shift and the early reviews on Rift are sounding pretty darn good.

Also, I'm not sure when it's actually coming out, but Dead Island looks pretty fucking awesome as well. I'm really not sure how I will fit all of these games into my schedule, but....it will happen somehow. Maybe.

Portal 2 - 95 on metacritic
Arkham City - 96 on metacritic
Mass Effect 2 - 94
Uncharted 3 - 93
Then all of the following are around 90:
Modern Warfare 3
And there tons of good games that I didn't even mention but there are two games that in my humble opinion are the cherry on top.
Skyrim - 11/11/11
And I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea but I've been obsessed.
Zelda - Skyward Sword.
There's an embargo on reviews until Friday but a few magazines have broken it just to be the first to give it a perfect score. I know we all like Zelda games but every review so far has called it the best or a contender for the best Zelda game ever made. With the first 4 reviews in it's got a 98 on metacritic. That would put it in a tie with GTA 4 for the best reviewed video game ever.
