Best Narrative 2011: Portal 2

It’s something to be said when I can safely say that Portal 2‘s narrative just so happens to be also one of the greatest game narratives of all time. There are emotional heights, Greek mythology metaphors, ironic non-interactivity weavings, fluctuating philosophies, deep reinforcement of mechanics and all kinds of things that span the entire narrative of Portal 2 that truly does keep you on the edge. It’s a tale of heartbreak, tragedy, comedy, farce, fearlessness, redemption and absolute hilarity. For any work to dive between tones so quickly, yet maintain such an avid mood, that deserves to be truly celebrated.

That is why Portal 2 has the best narrative. It truly is a masterpiece of both story and storytelling.
