As usual, tough choices.

I went with LA Noire - loved this game. Bought this game for $5 bucks and a used PS3 for $119 to play it.



I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Again there’s quite a few games I enjoyed from this year but I’ve gone with To the Moon - I hated the graphics but the story was just so good!

Conspiracies 2: Lethal Networks

Second Place:
Baron Wittard: Nemesis of Ragnarok

Honorable Mention:
A New Beginning
Black Mirror 3: The Final Fear
Last Half of Darkness: Society of the Serpent Moon

Book of Unwritten Tales is good, and Ihaven’t played Gemini Rue or To the Moon yet, so I’ll be choosing Portal 2. Some of the best spacial puzzles in any game.

Gemini Rue hit all my fav bullet points.
Great year, tough to choose from LAnoire and Ghosttrick.
Later was genius , former was ambitious.

Well, if Portal 2 is a valid vote, how could I not vote for that? It’s one of my absolute favorite games of all time, and when friends less interested in games ask me about what makes the medium worthwhile, Portal 1&2 are my go to-answers.

It has the puzzles, it has the characters, it has the artstyle, it has the dialogues, it has the coop mode, it has the editor, it has the dark humour, it has the soundtrack, and it has much more.

The Book of Unwritten Tales? Is it really that good? I only tried the demo, but found very few likeable aspects of it in that. A pretty terrible artstyle, characters to dislike, so-so dialogues, and and voices that made me cringe. But I do know that a lot of people really likes this game, and I knew it before the votes in this thread.

Gemini Rue is ok, but I played it, beat it, and have thought very little about it since.

Back to the Future? The same of as with Gemini Rue.

I have to go with To the Moon. If emotional impact is what you are looking for in a game, this one had it all.

I’m hearing that 2011 was a good year for gaming in general and I’m glad to see adventures also benefited. It’ll be a nice contrast when the 2012 thread appears and er… philosophical differences come into play.

I’m picking Ghost Trick but only just by a hair. It could easily go to Portal 2, L.A. Noire or Gemini Rue for striking art design and engaging characters.

If you saw the demo, you’ve seen it all. I dropped the game half through the way for all the reasons you mentioned plus very mediocre story and puzzles. I guess people just got hungry for a descent fantasy adventure which are quite rare nowadays, even though it was just a parody.

Voted for Edna & Harvey as it was a great fun, and it also helped to establish Daedalic as a new solid adventure company.

Despite strong competition from Gemini Rue, Ghost Trick, L.A. Noire & Layton, there’s no way for them to beat To the Moon.

To the Moon had such a strong emotional impact with me that I spent more than half its 4.5 hour playtime in tears.
And I just can’t resist the piano piece on the soundtrack.
