Giant Bomb Community Game of the Year - Best Story (Voting)

Welcome as we continue a month long project I am hosting to allow the fans of the site to offer their chance to vote for the GOTY awards. Over the next month I will be posting a new award every day and will let the fans vote on the winner as well as the runners up. Here are links to the winners of the previous categories:

The Voting Process

So here's how we are going to do this. You will have free reign to nominate anything you want as long as it fits with the category and was released in 2011. When you reply to the post put your winner and runner up. So for example If I was voting for this category I would put down

Winner: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Runner Up: Batman: Arkham City

The way the scoring system will work is that the winner from each person will get 2 points and the runner up will get one point. At the end of the day I will tally up all the points and whoever has the most wins and consequently the 2nd and 3rd highest will be the runners up. For GOTY we will do a winner and four runners up but the voting process will still be the same.

Because I want to give more people an opportunity to cast their votes all the voting will be done over the course of the week and they will close on Friday December 16th at 11:59 pm EST. The Winners for each category will then be announced on Saturday.

Shit, I don't think I've played a ton of games this year. Might as well give it a shot, though:

Winner: El Shaddai (what's better than Dead Space combined with Final Fantasy VII?)

Runner up: Portal 2 (although there is one plothole: why all the MikuMikuDance videos?)

Winner: Witcher 2

A rare fantasy story in that the plot is driven forward by actual fucking people--not by prophecies, or absentee gods, or magic artifacts. Just people. Depressing that that's so rare.
