    As per DJSigma's excellent thread in the 360 section, we're looking for everybody's PlayStation 3 Games of the Year, a topic we'll be covering in an upcoming podcast, so we're looking for your input here, both in voting and your reasons for nominations. :)

    As well as the big guns of your favourite disc-based games, we'd also like to know your top PSN, Move, Indie and DLC releases, but feel free to leave them blank/not nominate if you've not played any such games.

    Rules:

    The only rules are that the game must have been released on the PlayStation 3 and in the year 2011.

    Voting:

    List your top three in order for disc-based and PSN categories, and one each for Move, Indie, DLC and Turkey.

    Scoring:

    Choices in disc-based GOTY and PSN GOTY categories will be awarded points descending in value (3 pts for 1st choice, 2 pts for 2nd choice and 1 pt for 3rd choice).

    Other categories will see each nomination get one point.

    Move games:

    Move games don't need to be Move-only titles, just include what you consider to be good use of the functionality, even if it isn't essential. So vote on what you think showed off the technology, not the AAA game that shoehorned it into menu navigation. ;)

    Feel free to list Move games in the other categories, if you think they deserve a spot there as well.

    List of Move games to help.

    Turkey:

    Reserved for that special game, which can be from any category, that disappointed you the most, be it overhyped or just plain lousy.

    Form

    Please use the below format to aid tallying of votes.

    PlayStation 3 disc-based game of the year: -

    1. Uncharted 3 - engaging from beginning to end
    2. Dark Souls - annoys me, but I have to keep going back for more
    3. Ico/SotC Collection - classics

    Move game of the year: -

    1. Killzone 3 - proper use of motion controls - wish I had a sharpshooter

    PSN game of the year: -

    From Dust - thoroughly enjoyed, something a bit different

    Turkey of the year: -

    1. Skyrim - so much potential, so broken. Any GOTY awards for this buggy mess should be held back for 2012 after numerous patches. It doesn't deserve the GOTY awards it's already got from many websites that seem to think faulty is a perfectly fine way to release a product.

    3. Resistance 3

    PSN game of the year: -

    1. From Dust

    Disc based games

    1: Dark Souls - 2nd only to its predecessor for my fav game this gen
    2: Uncharted 3 - Great series peaked in the 3rd installment.
    3: Rayman Origins - came out of nowhere, fantastic gameplay, visuals and easily best platform game this gen if you dont own a Nintendo console.

    Turkey of the year

    Call of duty: mw3 - possibly the worst cod ive played due to the awful maps, some nice additions here and there but not enough to retain my interest. The series is dead to me now and I wont be buying another.

    Disc based games

    1: Deus Ex HR - Couldn't it down, a truly great story
    2: Shift 2 Unleashed - accessible driving fun after some patches

    Turkey of the year
    1. Modern Warfare 3 - utterly pointless, repetitive, dull and responsible for killing gaming
    2. Battlefield 3 - as per MW3
