So, yesterday we talked about how Entertainment Weekly voted Kirby's Epic Yarn the single worst game of 2010. While a bizarre choice in a year that saw games full of real technical, design and visual flaws, EW is entitled to its opinion.
Its bizarre logic that the game was "too cute" was the really stupid thing, however, and it seems that things have gotten stupider. See, Entertainment Weekly actually reviewed Kirby's Epic Yarn when it came out, and it seems that the "overwhelming" adorability wasn't a problem back then. In fact, the game scored a B+.
Here's what the review says. Bear in mind this is the ENTIRE review, as well. They work hard at EW:
And that, friends, is grounds for being picked as the worst game of the year. Amazing, isn't it? They say that "real game journalists" are the worst writers around, but so long as editorially inconsistent publications like EW are around, I think I'll be sleeping easy at night.
Does it really matter what EW thinks about games? I know some of you have asked that, and that answer is no. However, is it entertaining to laugh at what EW thinks about games? Absolutely! And I think that a publication called Entertainment Weekly could certainly appreciate that!
