(Part 1 of an ongoing series)

Are you into video games? All gamers should check out conferences such as the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC) so you can see what latest games are coming soon to a store near you. However, how do you know which games are good? So many games, not enough money or time! Well, did you know the GDC  hosts an awards show every year, to celebrate great games from the previous year? Here are onomeister’s can’t-miss reasons why these games (ongoing) were nominated for Game of the Year:

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PS3 / Xbox 360) – I’ve wanted to ask, why is Skyrim so damn popular? Is it the meticulous attention to detail in this graphically beautiful world? Or because almost every aspect of the game can be altered and tailored based on your decisions? Or because in the expansive Viking world, every city has its own personality? Or because of the sheer overwhelming amount of so many different things you can do in the game? Of course, it’s all of these and more! For casual gamers, you will enjoy this game due to its open-world, play-at-your-own pace, and if you get lost or don’t know what to do next, you can use a magic spell to guide you where to go next.  Oh, and don’t forget the dragons! A MUST GET!!
  • Batman: Arkham City 
  • Portal 2
