The pristine environments, smooth game play, suave mechanics, well-devised tech trees and deep plot all melded together to craft the game-busting epic that is Skyrim. So what do you think? Should Arkham City, COD3, Skyward Sword, Uncharted 3, or Battlefield 3 have taken the 2011 GOTY award instead? Let us know by posting your thoughts in the comments below.

Reported by IndustryGamers:
With a very talented pool including Uncharted 3, Skyward Sword, Batman and Portal, it was Skyrim that came out on top as the best game of 2011 for the Spike Video Game Awards. The announcement is well deserved, with Bethesda working diligently to ensure the best possible title on the incredibly powerful Creation Engine. This achievement is definitely reminiscent of the previous Elder Scrolls: Oblivion taking GOTY nods in 2006 and Fallout 3 taking the same honor in 2008.
Kudos again to the Skyrim Team and Bethesda. Job well done, award well-deserved. Be sure to post your thoughts below!
