The Kotaku Awards 2011: Nominate Your Favourite PC Game

Alright we're kicking off award season at Kotaku, and this week we're taking nominations! Every day this week we're taking nominations on each specific category. Next week we'll put up the poll, and the week afterwards we'll announce the winners.

Today is nomination time for PC games, some of my personal favourites were...

— The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim — Portal 2 — Frozen Synapse

Now you! What were your favourite PC games of the year?

Drop your nominations in the comments below, and nominate in other categories here.


    Given that I've somehow still not played Skyrim, my vote goes for Shogun 2.

    Title says console, article says PC?

    If PC, Portal 2.

    If console, Portal 2 & Dark Souls.

      Actually this is really hard, at least for PC games.

      Witcher 2 seemed great but I didn't play much.
      Deus Ex was great but I think I lack the commitment to finish it, plus a few design choices REALLY bug me.

      Yet to play Skyrim (copy is on it's way, hurry up Ozgameshop!) or Batman AC since it's not yet released on PC.
      And as you noted Mark, Frozen Synapse is fantastic. It's also a great game to play multiplayer with a mate for 5-30 minutes since you can have a game finish so quickly, but other times they can really draw out into a cat & mouse game.

      Another game I really enjoyed this year has been The Binding of Issac, no idea why it doesn't get more press coverage. It's another game you can play in short bursts, it (clearly) doesn't take itself seriously, it's from the dudes from Team Meat and it really treads the line of challenging & fun finely.

      But if I have to choose one, Portal 2. Probably my favourite game since Demon's Souls, and Half-Life 2 before that.

      Sigh, oh and Bastion. That game is beautiful to look at & listen to and it's a joy to play.

    Title says Console Games by the way.

    Saints Row the Third

    I'm also assuming that when they are released I will add Batman and AC:R to that list.

    Mark, the title of the post asks for console nominations, anyhoo:

    Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and Deus Ex: Human Revolution for me please!

    Just a quick note, the title of the article is "Nominate your favourite console game" yet this is about PC games.

    Now second point, should nominations for favourite PC game be for games ONLY on PC? otherwise I'm sure we will get a lot of cross over for multi platform releases.

    Anyway my nomination for PC(only) game is Witcher 2, its a thoroughly exceptional game, even if the end does feel a bit phoned in

      Witcher 2 was also released on 360 :P

        Are you from the future!?

    For now it's Saint's Row: The Third. Later this evening it will be Skyrim.

    SKYRIM SKYRIM SKYRIM.... nothing released this year on any platform is better.

    Hang on what the hell am I doing wasting my time on Kotaku.... back to SKYRIM!

    Football Manager 2012
    Portal 2

    Portal 2

      many awards for such an epic effort.
