Skyward Sword has been making its rise through G4’s deathmatch, beating such titles as Skyrim and Uncharted 3. In the final battle, Assassin’s Creed vs. Skyward Sword, Nintendo fans celebrated as The Legend of Zelda became champion.
However, many Nintendo fans have become annoyed with X-Play, as the announcement that Skyward Sword won included a snide comment about how victory was due only to Nintendo fans being “enraged” with G4 for not being included in the other G4-decided Game of the Year awards, stating, ‘It was a close race, but in the end, anger always wins.’
Many feel that this comment downplays Skyward Sword’s victory and does not give it credit for winning on its own merits as a game. However, as Zelda and Nintendo fans we can all agree that this victory has been a very sweet comeback. Leave us some comments below, let us know what you think!
