The Kotaku Awards 2011: Nominate Your Favourite Console 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 we're taking noms for the best console game of the year. For this one we're sticking to box copies.

I'll chuck in a couple of my nominations and let you guys go at it!

— Fight Night Champion — Portal 2 — Batman: Arkham City — FIFA 12 — Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

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


    My picks (in order):

    -Dark Souls
    -The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
    -Resistance 3

    Honourable Mentions:
    -Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
    -Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    -Portal 2

    Aw that's not fair, we need skyward sword to come out first!!

      Not only that, I need more time to finish these damned games!

      Yeah this! Well, I just got back from preordering Zelda. Is was pretty much the pre-order of the year! I pre-ordered that game so hard...

      Oh crap, and I just received Assassin's Creed: Revelations in the mail..... I swear, the video game gods were all like 'hey, you know what would be really funny? If we released ALL THE GOOD GAMES at the SAME TIME and watched the little gamers try to finish them all.'
      Seriously... AC, Skyrim, Dark Souls, Skyward Sword, Arkham City, Uncharted 3, DAMMIT WHY ARE YOU MAKING GAMING SO DIFFICULT!!!

      Serrels you shouldve made this post on the 25th! Until then, I'm not voting :p


      I don't care, I'm voting for it anyway. My votes:
      - Portal 2
      - LA Noire
      - Skyward Sword

    Dark Souls
    Portal 2
    and I haven't even played Skyrim yet but I'm still nominating it.

      I'm with this person, I'm nominating Assassins Creed Revelations and Skyrim and I am yet to play either, EXAMS :( Tomorrow can't come soon enough! And Portal 2. that is one awesome game. (cant vote for these but excited for The Witness and Antichamber for their similarity to Portal)
      -Portal 2

    MGS HD Collection. 3 of the best games ever made.

      I was going to nominate this, but it gets released next year in Aus so I don't know if it counts?

    LA Noire... (don't yell at me!)


    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
    Dark Souls
    FIFA 12
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    Resistance 3

    ...each to their own.

    oh wait! and Minecraft! ;)

    Without a doubt:

    Battlefield 3
    Portal 2

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Portal 2

    PORTAL 2

    -Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
    -Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    -Portal 2

    I haven't played any console games this year, but ordered Zelda: Skyward Sword...

    So it gets my vote, purely because it's the only game I've actually wanted to buy on a console all year.

    I'm still waiting for that blow-your-socks-and-shoes-off game to hit me.

    I certainly have nothing to add to the above comments in terms of nominations, so happy to acquiesce with those noms :)

    Gears of War 3
    Arkham City

    Forza 4
    Battlefield 3
    FIFA 12

    I think it's going to have to be Portal 2. While not equal to Portal 2 in the story, the extensive history they gave to Aperture was fascinating (and almost believable) and the co-op multiplayer was executed perfectly.

    So yeah. PORTAL 2.

      Oh, since we get multiple votes I would also like to nominate Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and because no-one else will, Shadows of the Damned.
