If ever given a chance, would you vote Portal 2 as the best game of the decade.
If not, why?
It was fun and unique, but I don't know if it raised the bar any more than Uncharted 4 or The Last of Us. A GOTD, to me, raises the bar. I think at this point in the industry's history, everything is iterated upon at such a micro level, I dunno if any game can raise the bar any more in monumental steps like Doom or Half-Life did. Now expectations are raised centimeters at a time.
Then again, now that VR is proliferating, and it sounds like Valve is going to announce something next year, that is what it's going to take to really raise the bar. The shift to a new technology and putting great content on top of it. But this is a challenge because VR hasn't proven itself yet. It's a novel technology and not widely accepted.
If you had to ask me now, in 2016, what the GOTD is... It's not Portal 2. What is the GOTD? I really don't know. Portal 2 is definitely top 10.
