Portal 2 takes home Game of the Year

What's wrong with LBP2? If you're having trouble with making levels, although I've never played an LBP game in my entire life, I think you should play some of the easier, introductive levels in the game, and hopefully, it will ease in. And if you don't like making levels or playing them, you should go back to LBP1's motto "Play with everything" and just experiment with all the new tools, items, and functions. If you still don't like the game by then, I'll believe you really don't like it, it all depends on you.
