This is probably my most random blog post ever, so if you don't want to read a rant and personal anecdote of mine, you can safely move along and not miss anything because that's all this blog post is.
So I got The Last of Us a couple of days ago. �I had seen all the same trailers everyone else had; the shocking E3 trailers showing the stealth gameplay and the graphic violence and realism. �I saw all the perfect 10 reviews, and I read through hundreds of comments agreeing with it on multiple sites. �The game definitely looks gorgeous, but I just wasn't sure if I was going to be happy with how it played.
And Fire Emblem, I love that series. �Why did I wait so long? �The more that I looked over the 3DS library available, the more it hit me how much I've truly been missing these last couple of years, and how much I now had to look forward to.
Super Mario 3D Land
Ocarina of Time
Project X Zone
Mario and Luigi Dream Team
Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Castlevania: Mirror of Fate
New Super Mario Bros 2
Etrian Odyssey IV
Kingdom Hearts 3D
Just to name a few. �All games that look like they prioritize gameplay above cinematic, scripted events. �All games that for the most part, look bright and colorful, and celebrate fun, instead of misery. �Pretty sure that after I catch up on my 3DS fix, I'll probably get a Wii U early next year.
I realize I probably stand alone in most of my opinions regarding gaming, but as far as I'm concerned, The Last of Us is unbelievably overrated. �It stands a real shot at dethroning GTA IV as the most overrated game of all time. �And Nintendo, they are equally underrated and underappreciated. �I lost sight of that somewhere after Skyward Sword, but I found the light again and I couldn't be more excited about the next few months of gaming ahead of me.
