Don't Forget Skyward Sword
This holiday release window has been an amazing season for gaming. It's the year of the threequel: Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, Saint's Row: the 3rd and more I'm sure are slipping my mind. Toss in the 200 hour epic of Skyrim and there simply aren't sufficient hours to actually partake in all this glorious gaming. In the midst of this massive glut, I'm surprised that there isn't any significant buzz about Skyward Sword.
This is the game that "hardcore gamers" have been clamoring for ever since the debut of the Wii, and nobody seems to care anymore. It's good. The dungeons are great, and the motion controls provide an experience unique to the platform and title.
On a related note, I'm chagrined whenever I hear people (read: kids) online actually BITCHING about perceived shortcomings in the video game industry. To paraphrase Louis C.K., video games are AMAZING right now, and nobody is happy! Fucking try to enjoy this Golden Age you self-entitled, apathetic, pretentious, unappreciative lot of hipster wastrels who contribute naught but the consumption of your parents' painstaking labor.
