So the Video Game Awards (VGAs) have came and passed and Skyrim won game of the year. The five games on the ballot were Skyrim, Batman: Arkham city, Portal 2, Uncharted 3, and Zelda Skyward Sword. Honestly I would of taken Zelda and Portal off the list and put Gears of War 3 and Dead Space 2 on there instead. Then again I would made it more than 5 games listed. This year was really heavy with great games. I would of wanted Saints row the Third and Rayman origins on it as well.
Overall Though my game of the year would be Batman: Arkham City. Uncharted 3 was really good, but more of the same. If not Batman, Uncharted would be my game of the year. Batman however completely took the series from a closed linear world to an open city where you can do what you want. It really branched off into a direction that benefitted it and did enough change to not be stale.
There really are to many games to just decide to pick one. Thankfully I really don’t have to. The real point is all these games deserve praise and should be enjoyed.
