As you probably know, our video game deathmatch for best game of 2011 is in full flower. We're down to the final four, and we need to you to vote to help us decide which games will fight it out in the ultimate showdown.
To try and sway your opinion, G4TV social media coordinator and Defender of Hyrule, Antonio Hernandez and I have destroyed our friendship over whether Skyward Sword is a better game than Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Read on to see how the two of us nerds duke it out in a battle of epic proportions.
STEVE: This battle is surprising. The new Zelda and Skyrim are nearly tied for votes. I think people must be confusing the titles or something. Just to make it clear: SkyRIM is the massive, deeply awesome RPG that’s practically a way-of-life. SkyWARD Sword is the latest entry in a gaming franchise that was good in the mid 90s, but has been coasting since then. I mean, I get it that fans of Ocarina of Time are coming out in droves to vote for the latest Zelda game, but come on, people: Skyward Sword is hardly even in the same class as Skyrim, and if it wasn’t for the nostalgia factor, and the intense loyalty of Nintendo fanboys, it would have been knocked out in the first round.
