It’s Tuesday so that means I talk games with Glenn “Wammo” Williams during his breakfast show at Kiwi FM. Today, I talked about my favourite games of the year, and there were a few of them.
I’ll let you watch the video in a minute but my Game of the Year is probably different from everyone elses: I gave it to Batman Arkham City, and not Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which is getting a slew of GOTY awards. Queue the gnashing of teeth and wailing by rampant fan boys who will proceed to tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about by not giving it to Skyrim.
I think I’ve said before on this blog (and if I haven’t then I’m saying it for the first time): I haven’t played Skyrim so I couldn’t give it GOTY. I didn’t play it because I gave it to another reviewer who had played Oblivion to death so was more experienced in looking at Skyrim. I’m sure Skyrim’s great – heck, people are saying it’s great, so it must be right? – but I haven’t played it.
Watch the video and let me know whether you agree with me or not?
