Portal 2 is second place for me for Game of the Year 2011. The gameplay we all loved from the first game is back, with far more puzzle elements. The humor is more prominent this time around, there are a few iconic characters to carry the narrative, and the addition of co-op (which I was skeptical of at first) is brilliant. The controls for the PS3 version are probably the best first-person controls I've played. I have only played a puzzle or two of co-op, so anybody who has this on PS3 or PC and is interested, feel free to add me. When I'm done with Skyrim (or when it's done with me) I'd love to play some more co-op.

I agree, Portal 2 was really great. My wife wouldn't let me play it without her in the room.

Haven't tried co-op yet. I want to though.

Cave Johnson is a legend. I reloaded a few saves just so my wife could hear his lines.

The voice acting was very well done.

The voice acting overall was. Everyone. But Cave was the best by far! I love the actor in everything I've seen him in, but I may like Cave more than any of the others.

I think I know, but was Skyrim your game of the year for 2011 and Portal your second place? I know this is necromancing a long side dead thread but I am curious as your explicitly mention it.

I wonder if you had to pick a game now for 2011, would it still be Skyrim over Portal 2?

Wow yeah, necromancy to the max! :)

And yeah, I'd still pick Skyrim over Portal 2, and possibly any game this decade.

Over... Terraria? worried

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 03/18/2015 at 12:49am

Yes. I adore Terraria, but it's not my favorite game ever. It's damn close. :)

Shit man, I don't even know.

That's a hard question. I was sure of it three hours ago, but now I'm not. I think, in terms of fun intensity, I'd give Skyrim the nod over Terraria. In terms of quantity of fun, it's Terraria. I think.

That makes sense. I think I'd put Terraria multiplayer over many single player games i've played. It's just so much fun playing with friends.
