Now here we are, finally up to date. I also don’t think it’s going to be very hard to guess what my Game of the Year will be for this year. The nominees are as follows.
- Kingdom Hearts 3
- Resident Evil 2
- Total War: Three Kingdoms
Did you get it right? Well done if you did. Resident Evil 2 was exactly what I hoped it would be when it was first announced in 2015 and more. The atmosphere was thick and at times bed-wetting, the gameplay was crisp and the story was… well… still as bat-shit crazy as the original but it was told in a much more compelling way. You can tell a lot of time and effort was put into the game and it shows. Nostalgia still runs deep in the game and the improvements only serve to amplify it’s appeal. Well done Capcom for making Resident Evil great again. Next week I will follow up with the big one, Game of the Decade.
