Golden Joystick

Occasionally readers complain that I'm too critical of people who claim to be artists. Take a look at Chell from Portal 2 and you'll see my reason. There are some great artists working in the field of video games, and they get scant recognition outside the industry. The artist who created this amber-eyed beauty for EA Games remains anonymous. You don't get to see much of her, because you view the game through her eyes as you create portals to try to escape. Portal 2 - a first-person puzzle game with a sense of humour - has won the ultimate game of the year 2011 at the Golden Joystick video game awards. CLICK for an interview with the winners.
