This Friday, we kick off GamesRadar’s sixth officially annual Platinum Chalice awards, a celebration of the best of what the industry’s given us in 2011. In the run-up to the awards, we’re doing something a little different. Every day this week, we’ll reveal one of our five Game of the Year nominees, with brief videos detailing why we think they’re titles worthy of consideration. And after the Chalices are posted on Friday afternoon (Pacific time, that is), we’ll follow up with a special video detailing our winner. Let’s begin with a no-brainer: one of the year’s most critically acclaimed games, Portal 2.
Is Portal 2 your favorite game of the year? Whether you agree or disagree, let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to stay tuned all week for more Platinum Chalice nominees!
