Portal 2 Wins Golden Joystick “Ultimate Game of the Year” Award

It seems a little early to be handing out Game of the Year awards, but that’s how the GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards roll. And who I am to tell them otherwise? They’ve picked their big winner, and it’s Valve’s Portal 2. But who else took home awards?

I don't get it this portal game looks boring and so blank.
What's the catch?

@TmanX1 Please ask the mods to unban me I miss the forums :(

Play it and find out.

Edit: GT5 won nice.

Urrakia342133d ago

GT5? You obviously didn't play Forza 4 buddy....

Iroquois_Pliskin2133d ago

@Urrakia34

What? then you obviously havent played GT5

If you played it you would know why it won. The game is that good.

Portal 2 will not appeal to some gamers. As a matter of fact it most likely not appeal to quite a bit of console only players.
Its truly a unique game with ingenious puzzles and humour etc.
There is a reason it scored 95% overall on metacritic.
Gamers of all platforms should give this game a try. Its different and fresh.

It is nothing like boring and blank

TopDudeMan2133d ago

Exactly. The game is just pure fun.

callahan092133d ago (Edited 2133d ago )

OK, this is ridiculous. Portal 2 is a great game and all, but can't we wait until the end of the year before giving out a Game of the Year award? We've got Uncharted 3, Zelda, Skyrim, and others coming out soon. Seems ridiculous.

EDIT: Nevermind. I see what they've done here. It looks Portal 2 was just about the final game to come out in their eligibility for the "year". Almost every other game they awarded was from 2010, not 2011.

I have it for the ps3... it is very good.

What a joke. They better give out rewards before UC3 comes out. When did Black Ops release? JOKE!

StifflerK2133d ago

It's strange I know , but UC3, Batman and all the games out this holiday season will be in next Years Golden Joystick awards.

I think the cut-off point is the end of Summer.

TheOtherTheoG2133d ago

Yeah, bizarrely, the Golden Joysticks are done from summer to summer - this years GotY, for example, would be the best game between August 2010 and August 2011, that's just how it works. Hence Black Ops, AC Brotherhood, Starcraft 2, Fallout New Vegas, which all released last holiday season, are in this year's awards, and UC3 and Arkham City, among others, are not.

MrBubble2133d ago

I'm sorry but portal 2 is like going to see a pretentious art movie
Great game but not game of the year worthy.

And isn't a little early to hand this out there's still
UC3
Skyrim
BF3
MW3
Batman AC
AC revalations

Enate2133d ago

Agreed this was done way to early. There needs to be like an industry rule no year awards until like December 25th.

TheOtherTheoG2133d ago

As I posted above, instead of going from New Year 2011 to New Year 2012, instead of it being the 'best game of 2011' or whatever, they go from summer 2010 to summer 2011, hence they're doing it so early. They haven't just left out all the other games releasing this year, they'll be in next years awards, if you see what I mean. Essentially, they count the year as going from September to August, rather than January to December. Odd, but hey

earbus2133d ago

Lol blops is the only game i played on the list.

wenaldy2133d ago

What's up with "with association" award? Im afraid they had lost their credibility and more tendentious..
