2011 was a fantastic year for sequels, out of all the games that released last year I would say that Dead Space 2 and Portal 2 are still my personal all time favorites. Portal 2 made a note there "HUGE SUCCESS!" and was a smash hit on the PC / PS3 and the XBOX 360, all the sites were so charmed by the delightful humor and theme of the game that no site had the heart to give this game a bad review / rating. But this game was particularly looked forward to on the PS3 for two reasons:

1) Cross Platform playability: PC and PS3 players can collaborate together and solve the co op puzzles as a team and put the master console / PC race behind them for the sake of science.

2) PS3 version of the game = Free PC version: This is the first time Valve has ever been generous to a console; Valve announced that fans who bought the PS3 version of the game would be able to redeem the PC version too via a separate voucher included in the game. This was the icing on the cake which made many PS3 gamers kill two birds with one stone and showed that Valve does care for console gamers too.
