In any other year, you could have crowned Batman: Arkham City, Skyrim, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Dark Souls, Minecraft, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Bastion, Gears of War 3 or Dead Space 2 as the Game of the Year, and be confident that the gaming world would nod and say ‘yup, that’s the one’. But yet, we would like to make a case that the best game of 2011 isn’t even on that list. The best game of 2011 is my greatest game of all time. And that game is Portal 2."
