Oh Skyrim... This is why people look back on Gaming History and ask "Wait, *that* was Game of the year?"

I assure you, in five years time few will think "Hey, I want to replay Skyrim...", but "Hey, I want to replay Chapter 7 of Portal 2" is going to be thought a lot...

to be honest in a few years time im goign to forget portal 2 even exists to me it was kinda dissapointing, and i currently do a morrowwind playthrough every year or so.

is it sad that i had to double check dragon ager 2 and resistance 3's release dates to make sure.

I chellenge thee to a duel at nightfall! Select your wee-ah-pon/s! Portal 2 is excellent and all other views are invalid.

Loved the Valve news. I'm sure it's no coincidence that Gabe used the number 3 as their hint when it could apply to almost any of their franchises. Personally, I'm gonna pretend it's Steam for the 3DS.

I assume they're going to announce the video game adaptation of "The Madness of King George III"

So, I guess there wasn't a Club Penguin game this year? I guess sometimes you just have to settle for second-best...

So I saw BOOM! in the credits, and immediately thought HEADSHOT! :D

Next year:

"And now the moment I know you've all been waiting for. We here at Valve are proud to announce this years flagship project" 3, A math based freeium social game! As I will demonstrate, you ca- wait, where did everybody get torches from?"

Yeah, I am totally with those saying, "No, Portal 2 was the game of the year." No question.

That said, I haven't played Skyrim. Nor am I likely to, so...

So what you're saying is they've bought the rights to this, and are going to make 3 in Three 2?
