Feature: Canaries of the Year

Game of the Year

And finally, what everyone has been waiting for. I narrowed it down to five finalists:

Bastion
Dark Souls
Portal 2
Skyrim
The Witcher 2

It may seem surprising to have so many RPGs in the GOTY finalist list, but as I said before 2011 was in many ways the year of the RPG. Ultimately this boiled down to two games for me: Bastion and The Witcher 2. It was hard to make the decision, because although I felt The Witcher 2 was a better RPG, Bastion had some of the most polished core mechanics of any game I played in 2011.

After much thought, however, I arrived at a decision.
