@shenmuethree: I presume you didn't actually watch? Peter played Shenmue. Admittedly, I haven't played much yet, but after several hours, I certainly have impressions. (Also note that the video showed us both *in the act of playing Shenmue.*

No more games will be Kevin Van Scored ._.

That pun made me happy.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words. I'll still be around (I am not dying after all--I hope!), and I will always have plenty of opinions on video games. In case you want to keep up with whatever I am doing, here are some helpful links to the usual social media stuff:

@jecomans: I wonder if a game like Journey could be translated to a big, shared world. It seems like the seed is there...it just needs to grow into something worthwhile.

@StHapns247: Seems reasonable. Brevity is the soul of wit! (Thought I'd throw in a Shakespeare quote for the guy above.)

@Navardo95: If I wanted to be Shakespeare, I'd write in iambic pentameter!

It's E3--I don't have time to try hard. :)

@x-2tha-z: We did give it awards, and it was nominated for game of the year. I also named it my personal game of the year in our editor's awards. As for wondering why, it's not really that hard. 2011 was also the year of Batman: Arkham City, Portal 2, Skyrim, The Witcher 2, and so forth. There was competition!

It's my favorite game of its generation, but it's not hard to figure out why other games gave it a run for its money in 2011. Also, we gave Demon's Souls game of the year the same year Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed 2 came out. I'd say we were ahead of the curve!

@Bread_or_Decide: Actually, I thought AC4 was a lovely, fresh entry, and I barely played Unity. Five years ago, Brotherhood was released--and that game was awesome. So five years ago was not a time when AC was "tired," but a time when AC was still widely adored. I think your timeline might be off :) So yes--I actually think this might be the proverbial hitting of the wall for me. It certainly was *not* Brotherhood, aka the Assassin's Creed from five years ago.
