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.

Maybe this would have better represented my views:
"I disagree, Kadayi. Over the past few years, RPS' writers have written extensively about Minecraft. They've had numerous features, news on patches, interviews, diaries and even posts on what you can do in Minecraft with the help of a Kinect. Furthermore, Minecraft has been financially successful, with over 3 million purchases. For this reason, I believe it will appear on the Christmas Calendar this year."
I apologise if the original post may have seemed a little misleading. I certainly don't trawl the forums looking for anything that annoys me, from anyone. IIRC this is the first post of yours that I've actually replied to since the end of the old forums.
EDIT: Regarding NTW's post, nothing immediately appeared 'wrong' about it. He stated that he thinks the writers will go for Skyrim. Sure, no explanation, but I agreed with him so I glossed over.
Anyway, back to business.
For a while, I thought it would have been Batman: Arkham City that would have appeared on the 24th. But looking back, there's been quite a bit of criticism towards the writing (Bleed like a dead cat!) and the alleged sexism (Use of bitch etc.) in game.
And considering the amount of posts that have been directed towards Skyrim, I'd agree with other posters in the thread that Skyrim is probably going to be the #1 game this year.
Unless Jim *really* hates the interface that much. :P

As regards Skyrim. Albeit I've sunk almost 100 hours into Skyrim now, and am really enjoying it as a gaming experience I just don't think it's doing enough beyond it's sheer enormity (building on the good work of Fallout 3) to take the top prize, Vs something like Saints Row 3 (which is pretty much redefining its space) or DX:HR which is bringing the new to a long lost game style. I think top prize has always got to go to something that is pushing outward. Case in point last year it went to Minecraft. Not my cup of tea, but I can understand why some people found it enchanting.

Give it a rest guys. Alex, Kad, I will ban you both for two weeks if you continue squabbling.

Given the amount of love-, hate- and poetry-articles Skyrim received, it's a pretty safe bet.
But as safe bets are horribly boring, I'm placing my bet on Trine 2. Because if ever there was an argument that games are not art, or art-games have no real value of play, Trine 2 is the one to prove that yes, real games can be real art.

I'd say DXHR and Skyrim are fairly safe bets for the final two, with DXHR rising as the victor because of all the UI/technical insanity in Skyrim pegging it down a notch.Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

They seemed to really like Deus Ex and Skyrim. Somehow Skyrim seems too obvious at this point, so I suspect they will go for Deus Ex.
Should be Witcher 2, I say.

I'm hoping for Terraria, if only because I've personally had tons of fun with it.

Day four seems a little cruel (I'd of though it would be top 10 at least), however I think Jim makes some valid criticisms. Hopefully CDProjekt are listening.

I thought the Witcher 2 was a good outside bet. I'd like to see some proper left-field but maybe could happen suggestions - I guess SpaceChem is on the mark then.
As for "day four being a little cruel" - one of the hivemind would have to confirm, but I don't beleieve that the games of christmas are supposed to be a sorted list, other than number 24 being the RPS GotY

"They can be indie, mainstream, anything, just so long as they're PC and grabbed our attention in 2011. Then we put them into the calendar in no particular order."
"Except for door 24, behind which is our unanimously voted game of the year. Can you guess what it will be? CAN YOU? Incorrect guesses anger Horace, so be careful"
[Sorry for double post]

The no particular order thing is interesting. I assumed it was best to bestestestest, but I guess that would have been extremely difficult to gauge (especially with RPS not using numbers to help delineate this sort of thing).
As for Number 24, I'm leading towards it being Deus Ex or Skyrim. I think Portal 2 will be up near the top, just to keep us guessing, but I don't think it will take the top spot.weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...

Trine 2 will be out in time, right? (Obviously I don't think so, but I would've liked to play it in time for Christmas).
Deus ex seems like a good bet, but for some reason I didn't really get into it that much. There was just something missing... Also, I haven't played Skyrim so I don't really want to bet on it.
I'll go with... Magicka. Once it had the bugs ironed out, that game was just brilliant. Its gotten quite a lot of DLC keeping it fresh and it seems like something all members of the Hivemind can enjoy.
