    I guess I added Serious Sam 3 too late.

    Zero votes for Skyrim? Zero? That's a bit surprising.

    Current:
    Gold: Deus Ex: Human Revolution (10)
    Silver: Batman: Arkham City (6)
    Bronze: Portal 2 (5) and The Witcher 2 (5)

    That looks like a pretty solid ranking to me.

    Portal 2 was easily the best game I played last year. Good graphics, great writing, great voice acting, cool moments and a funny ending.

    Throw some awesome co-op on top of that and you have a very memorable gaming experience.

    Not anymore! :D

    Though to be fair, I haven't yet had a chance to play DX:HR or TWitcher 2. I doubt I will like either better than Skyrim, though. Despite all its faults, for me Skyrim is one of the quintessential escapist games, perhaps the closest any has ever come to combining the experiences of Daggerfall and Gothic 2. I wish I was ten years younger and had the time to play it the way it was meant to be played - six hours a day, seven days a week.

    I was tempted to try it out, but I am not into beta releases. :smug:

    [spoiler:34adaed5d6]Totally miss you, you PC gamer elitist you! <3[/spoiler:34adaed5d6]

    PS: You should make a TUC mod for the game. I would love to hear my character scream: I. waaannna. TUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCC! :mrgreen:

    Actually TUC is the most powerful Shout in the game. It instantly wins any battle by making your adversaries don black shirts and sunglasses, and dance to a mid-'90s cro-dance tune.

    Yah. A 5 second phase, you plan your troops, start playing and either scream in horror or shout in excitement. It's worth a try, plus its dystopian story is quite interesting.

    Also, why isn't it on the list? I think it should go up there. Doesn't matter if the game's indie or not, it's very fun nevertheless.

    I agree. One of my favorite games last year.

    Since Assassin's Creed Revelations (nor Brotherhood, both from 2011) isn't in the list, I vote The Witcher 2 for justice. Can't believe people vote Skyrim for anything, much less for GOTY...

    Witcher 2 kinda disappointed me. It felt vaguely console-esque, and that I do not like.

    Well I'd vote for Deus-Ex, but since I haven't played it...

    ES: V








    I jest, Deux Ex: HR of course.

    edit: I've not played much of Portal 2, which I must rectify as I loved Portal. Still, quasi-RPG's with dark and immersive atmospheres and good mechanics > puzzle games as a rule.
