Game of The Year?

Personally I think it deserves to be at least nominated.

I personally don't think so. But, considering there are usually multiple GOTY, I'm sure somewhere will pick it.

No. It's a good game and all, but it lacks 're-playability' and is somewhat a short game; both the single player and co-op.

There are (and will be) other games that deserve it more than Portal 2.

No, not GotY, I don't think. Even with the co-op mode, this game doesn't have much replayability at all, and after 10 months (after December) there will probably only have been one DLC pack out. Great game, but there's too many better games this year. I'm sure some publication or website will pick it though. Not my favorite game of the year though.

maybe as a nominee but won't win. It's pretty obvious that Skyrim is going to take the prize, it would be surprising if it didn't.

Skyrim or Battlefield 3 will get the title of GOTY IMO but Portal deserve to be nominee!

GOTY for me, the original was GOTY for me that year and it won I believe and this one is even better. Shame on Dead Space 2 though as that woulda been my other GOTY nominee.

It's a fantastic game but I think Uncharted 3 will be GOTY.

Portal 2 is fantastic but there wasn't any replay value until the latest DLC made leaderboards that should have been in the original game. If that DLC along with the Map Editor that is supposedly coming out early next year (In Valve time, that means August) I think it would easily be GOTY but the lack of features that should have been in the game in the first place take away from the title.

However, Co-Op is great and I think that it should be awarded best Co-Op game. You can't proceed without your partner as you have to play together or else you won't get out of the first room. Most co-op games usually involve 1 player doing most of the work with others sitting back. This forces you to work together, something I like and want more of in games.

Anyway that was a long summary lol.

No way!

Portal 2 has too many games in front it to even think about being even close to winner game of the Year. I think Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the one with the title

well portal 2 deserves to be in the mix (and should be a GOTY nominee, but aren't all games technically) but skyrim and batman are why too good and ALOT bigger it terms of hours to beat it and side missions and what not, so one of those will and should win, BF3 and MW3 will be nominated but don't really deserve to be nominated IMHO, Portal 2 is really really good, inventive, creative, made me laugh, i was scared and excited of new, harder levels, and i was sad when it was over, i would buy a portal game every year if they made'em.

Portal 2 will get nominated for GOTY, but will more than likely lose out to a game that can let you do more, like Batman: Arkham City or Skyrim. It is much better than any of the bland shooters we've seen this year, but can't quite hold up to an epic RPG or the goddamn Batman.

I think it deserves to win, at least some Goty awards. It may not be the best game of the year but it's one of the best I've ever played.

Three letters. LOL.

MW3 in no way deserves GOTY. It's nothing new, it's bland, and the story is crap.

We all know Skyrim's teeming hordes of fanboys will turn that into a landslide. Its a great game yes but I'm tired of these other great games this year getting trampled.

Skyrim did come out overall Game of the Year, but Portal 2 still swept the rest of the awards!


BEST PC GAME
Portal 2

BEST MULTI-PLAYER
Portal 2

BEST PERFORMANCE BY A HUMAN MALE
Stephen Merchant as Wheatley Portal 2

BEST PERFORMANCE BY A HUMAN FEMALE
Ellen McLain as GLaDOS Portal 2

BEST DLC
Portal 2 Peer Review


I personally think Valve should've gotten Gamer God Award (w/e the heck that is supposed to be, lol)


Props to Arkham City, which was on there quite a bit too!

Of course

This was a fantastic game, It had amazing voice acting, fun dialogue, interesting story, amazing gameplay, original idea, etc. And co-op. Game of the year for sure

this game wouldn't get GotY nominations because its a sequal. the original was, because it was original, this is just expanding a great idea. what is it adding that is really going to change gaming? what haven't we seen before? story isn't that great really think about it. it was just a guide to bring the puzzles together. not replayable and co-op is nothing new for any game. i thought this game was great, valve is great. but 2011 had way too many great games.

I think it will get a nod, but that's it. I would like to say Skyrim, but I think I actually like Deus Ex: HR better overall. That's just my opinion, of course!

Nomination - absolutely. Winner - no. I think the concept of Portal is really awesome and fun to play and obviously unique, but I personally don't think it has a "long-play value" like Skyrim or Multiplayer modes of other games (like BF3, MW3 etc.). And for me that's an important feature a game has to offer.

Other games deserve it more. And I hated Portal in the Half Live/Orange Box. Yes, I sucked at it.

Yes I'm not alone.

I just don't like the Portals, but I can't quite put my finger on why.

No I don't suck at it.

Nominated but not winner

It was overall a great game, but there are more other nominees that could win.

I've never even played it, it just looks goofy I guess. I've heard It's good though. Maybe if I find it under $20 I'll pick it up..
But OT: No it won't get GOTY

Portal 2 is easily in my top 5 games of all time. I found it to be 100% pure gaming perfection from start to finish.

Game of 2011 for me, for sure.

I agree, it should at least be nominated, but it should win...it's very fresh, you have to use your brain, even if that requirement is somewhat limited.

It's an awesome concept and game
