GameFly Says People Wanted Batman More than Modern Warfare 3 or Skyrim

Picking the best games of the year always boils down to opinion, which always leads to dissension over subjectivity and bias. So, while Kotaku's staffers rallied around Portal 2 as the site's GOTY, readers held their own damn awards and anointed Skyrim as their standout title for 2011.

Gamefly subscribers, however, came down differently than either one of those groups. The video game rental service aggregated data from its GameQs—users' queues of most-wanted releases—to generate Top 10 lists across various platforms.

The results? Batman: Arkham City placed high on every platform it was available for, landing at #1 for cross-platform and Xbox 360 and at #2 for PS3. Surprising no one, Uncharted 3 won out on PS3 and Super Mario 3D Land took the top spot on 3DS. The full lists follow below.
