In their final award of 2011, TheSixthAxis pick their favourite game of the year. Just what was the greatest gaming treat to hit shelves?
Portal 2 is damn good. Well deserved GotY. Obviously cases can be made for others like Uncharted 3, or Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, etc. I think the hate on Portal 2 getting GotY awards is so ridiculous that it's funny and I smile when I see it. Portal 2 is a beast. How can you disagree with jthamind saying that it is a "good choice"? It's a 95/95/95 meta. What's not a good choice about it?
1st: Portal 2 2nd: Skyrim 3rd: Batman: AC 4th: Uncharted 3 5th: Deus Ex: HR 6th: Gears 3 I would have put Skyrim at 4th place (my save of over 100 hundred hours is unplayable atm on ps3), Batman 2nd and Uncharted 3 at 3rd place
Agreed with your top 3. I'd probably switch Uncharted 3 and Arkham City though personally. 1. Portal 2 2. Uncharted 3 3. Batman: Arkham City IMO. BTW, try deleting and reinstalling your GAME DATA. I had to do that with Uncharted 3 when he refused to make a jump in the rusty shipyard. Another tip would be to always double save, alternate saves just in case. I've learned this the hard way a couple times.. in The Orange Box (luckily it double saves automatically) and then I got a corrupt save on BioShock 2 and possibly another game and had to start over. That way you just go back a little bit instead of losing everything if you get a corrupt save file.
