2011 Holiday Video Game Gift Guide: 'Modern Warfare 3', 'Star Wars: The Old Republic', 'Batman: Arkham Asylum'
10 hot titles to consider purchasing for that special gamer in your life this season
5. 'Portal 2'
For the intellectual in your life, or just in case you want to melt someone's brain, 'Portal 2' is here to not only deliver an amplified experience that augments the hilarity of the first game, but some of the funniest writing and voice acting you'll ever see in a videogame. (We're looking at you, Stephen Merchant.) GlaDOS is back, as is the twisted logic of Aperture Science, forcing you to think out of the box in ways you can barely imagine. Also, the multiplayer co-op is as fun and challenging as any such mode has ever been. Still alive? You bet. And thriving.
