Cole Monroe's race for the title of game of the year is already over as he says, "never has there been a game that I've enjoyed more thoroughly than Portal 2."
So far. It's currently my GOTY as I liked it more than deus ex but I know that that's going to change in november.
Portal 2 was pretty great, but I think I'd give it to Deus Ex so far. This is shaping up to be one of those years that'll end up having 5 or 6 games worthy of the honor by the end of it all though. It's gonna be a tough race.
Deus Ex was fantastic, the only reason I'm saying Portal 2 is because I absolutely loved the comedic aspects of it. I don't think that either of them will win it though as there are some games coming out that will be unbelievably good.
I've played every major release except the witchier 2 and IMO there aren't any other game of the year contenders other than Portal 2, I'm a portal fanboy tough. which gameplay you prefer is subjective, but the story telling in portal 2 was so far ahead from deus ex's, I just couldn't get myself to care about the characters, that might be because the french localization was horrible and it didn't let me play in english. the only game I see changing my mind is skyrim.
Diablo will be game of the year :)
