So there is something I wanted to write about for a while, but haven’t because it’s a bit complicated. It is so complicated because it involves….well time travel.
Nintendo officially released the Legend of Zelda time line to the masses. This is old news, however, they just recently released the book that contained the timeline to America. The Zelda time line claims to split into three time lines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. These three paths are
Link defeating Ganon after his rise to power
Link as a child before Ganon rised to power
and…. Link failing in his quest (dead as a door knob)
Nintendo says three time lines, those are it. I say nay IMPOSSIBLE!
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.
