PC Games / Official Game of the Year thread 2011

So now that you've all had a chance to play the major releases this year, we have one month in which to decide on the Game of the Year.

Since it's only the first of December and we have plenty of time to bicker before we have to come to some kind of consensus, I'm going to throw open the floor to nominations from anyone and everyone. Except you, spambots. You know who you are.

So throw up your picks and we can start arguing straight away!

/lurk's picks: Bastion, The Binding of Isaac, Pokémon Black & White

Bastion is a brilliant for totally different reasons than The Binding of Isaac, although one thing they have in common is that they both have really solid aesthetics. Either one is unmistakeable from other games, and the detail that went into the artwork (and sound, for Bastion) lends a lot to their appeal (although perhaps more so in Bastion's case, since Isaac has roguelike-compulsiveness in place of a detailed narrative.) You should have played them both already anyway, so you should know what I'm talking about.

Pokémon is the game that I think I've played most of this year, going by Steam stats and the hour counter on the cartridge. It's Pokémon! That formula was pefect in 1998 and has only got better since then.

/lurk's honourable mentions: SpaceChem (came out January 1st!:) The feeling I get when I see my reactor working perfectly is divine, and yet it always ends up in the least efficient 10% of all the reactors that do the same thing. I really wish I was good enough to play more of this, but it's proper bastard hard and I always seem to give up after a few hours. It deserves to be a much bigger success than it currently is, considering it's somewhat educational (it's licensed free to schools) and that the guy behind is is the guy who invented Infiniminer, before Notch copied the formula to become a millionaire - but that's beside the point that this is a good game in its own right.

Chantelise: I don't care what you think I loved it SO THERE. But admitedly it is ultimately a lesser game than Recettear (which is more or less up against Mario Galaxy 2 for 2010's GOTY)

Okay now FIGHT

Why the hell did I only find out about it now, two days before it comes out? Did no-one else here play the first one?

I got 100% completion on the damn thing. It was great.
