The cycle of game releases always has ups and downs, highs and lows. Months will go by without any games hitting my radar and then - bang zoom! - all of sudden there are five great games hitting the shelves on the same day. The summer of 2011 might be a bit slow but as soon as August and September come around, a flood of awesome titles are going to hit the shelves. From twitchy military shooters to fantastically dense RPGs to frantic action games, this year's games give you the chance to be a hero or a villain.

To prepare you for the wealth of games coming your way, The Escapist Staff has compiled all of our coverage of these super-anticipated games in one place. Here you can check out the latest trailer for Modern Warfare 3 or the latest preview of Skyrim.
