Place your bets for door twenty-four
So, what do you think is most likely to be behind door 24 for RPS this year.
Down to the general reaction and the sheer volume of coverage afforded on the site, I'd have to say that the joint favourites are Human Revolution and Skyrim. Portal 2 is a contendor naturally, but I can't really see it beating out those two. Equally, even though it's a better game than 12 months ago, I can't see Minecraft getting in there for a second year either.
Anyone else's feeling on what the Hivemind are likley to prefer?

I'd go with Human Revolution, on the basis that it's good and also significant to PC gaming culture. Skyrim is arguably better, but also arguably less significant.
And Duke Nukem Forever is significant, but... well..."Moronic cynicism is a kind of na´vetÚ. It's na´vetÚ turned inside-out. Na´vetÚ wearing a sneer." -Momus

I'm expecting Saints Row 3 to poll quite high. It seems to be a reviewer favourite. However I'd say the safe money is probably on DX:HR. Skyrim is all consuming, but it doesn't hit the high notes enough to be No 24 imo, and although Portal 2 was a joy, the lack of flexibility in the puzzle solving Vs the original probably drags it down.

So yeah, I'm inclined to go with 'Unlikely'.
(research, it's a wonderful thing).

I think they'll go with Skyrim.
The games I've had most fun this year with have been Just Cause 2 (can't beat walking away from explosions) and X3 : Terran Conflict. I think X3:TC just about shades it due to the sheer depth and variety of things to do.
Yes - I know they are not this year's games, but they are games that I first got this year. If Horace is kind to me this year then Skyrim may be a contender for my GOTY 2012...Admin for the RPS Divisions of Death

The Witcher 2 is my 'dark horse' pick.

Wasn't Minecraft featured last year? My internet is too slow to check but if so I think it's pretty safe to assume it won't feature again.

Plus, Terraria is better after comparing MC 1.0 and Terraria 1.1 anyway.

On my list it would be Skyrim, but I think the RPS guys will go DX:HR because practically every single article for 5 years has mentioned Deus Ex directly or indirectly in the comments. Seriously, like 90% of every single post. I now this because I never completed Deus Ex and it twinges a little nub in the back of my brain every. single. time. someone mentions or compares anything else to Deus Ex.All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.
