After much thought and deliberation I managed to pick just a hand full of games I consider some of the best games to come out this year. Having looked at them in every way, graphics, characters, story etc etc etc, in the end I came to what was actually a very easy choice. In a surprising revelation that even I thought would never happen, yet has. Now, I hope you agree with me that these are some of the best games this year.
And My Game of The Year Is...[spoiler]
As the game that took most of my life, soul and sleep this year, I really can't praise it highly enough. After years of waiting for a JRPG that would remind of what once was, this lovely game was dropped on my doorstep after thousands of people took to forums all across Europe in demand of it localisation. Sure enough we weren't disappointed either. Xenoblade has done something other JRPGs of this generation have not, stuck to what a JRPG should be. It hasn't tried to take a page out of western RPGs, it hasn't tried to add anything that was simple unnecessary and you get the feeling playing it that the developers knew what they wanted when designing it. Not to mentions that its fun to play, that you wanted to explore every possible area, has hours of gameplay, has likable characters and then finally they pulled everything together with an epic story of good versus evil, while not once losing its charm. At the same time it. Xenoblades is a very beautiful game to look at and to play, that you really didn't care that it isn't in HD. As, yes this is a game for the Wii.
Yes I am too shocked, a console I barely like has managed to produce my favourite game of 2011. Hopefully this game will reach American shores soon.[/spoiler]
This is the time of year when all walks of life can come together, where excuses can be made and gotten away with, where family can get together and people can have a good time without feeling the consequences.
It doesn't matter who you are, where you're from, what you do or which religion you are. Sure I'm agnostic and I celebrate Christmas because its the time of year where all my family literally come together and of course don't forget the presents.
See you all after the new years and enjoy yourselves no matter what you do.
