Okay, so this is a list of what I feel are the best moments this year so far, and the worst. Please put your own opinions as well!
5. Rare Replay- Microsoft.
As a massive fan of old school Rare, to be able to receive 30 of their hits for only $30 is a steal. This will surely take up hundreds of hours of my time come august when this releases, and Microsoft has seemed to have righted their wrongs and let Rare take a creative leap again with Sea of Thieves, a new pirate open world adventure game that looks like Black Flag but in an mmo setting.. Whatever the case I am looking forward to it!
4. Horizon- Zero Dawn
the new Open world RPG in a post apocalyptic setting looks to play fantastically! And I am a sucker for games like this, the gameplay looked incredibly smooth and creative, and the robot monsters are a cool twist! Too bad I do not have a PS4... Yet
3. Dark Souls III
Not much has actually been shown for this new game, but after playing both of the prequels I am super excited for the third installment! I know it is probably a ways away, but just seeing concept for it chilled my bones. A nice surprise in a lineup of great games.
2. Mario Maker
When I saw this game last year I didn't think much of it, I thought it was going to be very limited and closed in what it could do. However I have been proved wrong by Nintendo. They have put great effort into making this a fantastic tool that has seemingly limitless potential. Day one buy for me. (Also that final round of NWC was so intense, it basically sold me on this game!)
Call of Duty FALLOUT 4!!!!!!
The game looks like a combination of just about everything popular in gaming. Post apocalypse Check. Giant open world check. Crafting check. Guns check. Sandbox and city custom building check. Tower defense check. Everything a modern gamer could want is on this. And despite the backhanded Nintendo slap, this game has everything that I could want.
3. The Last Gaurdian- I know, this game is one of the most anticipated titles of the last decade, but the gameplay was completely underwhelming and looked like it could get annoying fast. The boys character design is awful, and his call for the beast is downright obnoxious. This game will have taken 8 years to develop when it releases, but it looks like an ambitious indie title at best. I hope they prove me wrong, but this game looks like it will disappoint.
2. Star Fox: Zero
The game looks like it is for the gamecube, super bland textures and Zero details. But I don't care about graphics as much as I care about what looks to be a very annoying second screen experience. I HATE GYRO. And I will get really annoyed switching between the screens and it looks like this is the only method in the game. Also, no multiplayer? Seems odd to me. The game is certainly nothing exciting.
1. Nintendo in general
I had high hopes for a metroid game, and they blew it with the 3ds game which looks half assed. I had high hopes for animal crossing on wiiu, and All i get is a pay tons of money for amiibo mario pary-esque game that looks boring as heck. I had high hopes for paper mario, and they blow that with yet another 3ds version that seems to crap on the classic first two by combining it with the popular but less quality Mario and Luigi series. And last, I had high hopes for Zelda Wii U which they left out because they are taking their good old time with it and instead of dedicating people and time to their one game that can save them they are giving me a four swords second coming that for the 3ds that looks like it is far inferior to the other 3ds zeldas and felt like a slap in the face. **Takes deep breath** Rant over.
