In a year that saw the release of Kane & Lynch 2, I'm Not Alone, Naughty Bear and Dead or Alive: Paradise, the experts at Entertainment Weekly have declared none other than Kirby's Epic Yarn as 2010's worst game. 

Red Dead Redemption was the magazine's pick for best game, but Kirby's Epic Yarn was voted the worst for being too cute and nice. Metroid: Other M was voted the second worst for being "infuriatingly clunky" and turning Samus Aran into "a glum functionary pining for her old boss?."

Of Epic Yarn, EW's Jeff Jensen stated: "There's a fine line between cute and grating, delightfully busy and irritatingly overwhelming -- and for me, this hyperactively adorable side-scrolling puzzler crosses it."

Naturally, Entertainment Weekly has the right to pick its games, and that is their opinion. It's not so much the decision that bothers me, though, but the absolute nonsensical reasoning behind it. Of all the total stinkers released this year, Epic Yarn is voted the absolute worst of the year because it's too cute

Fair enough.

Nightmare Wizard turns out the lights in Super Smash Bros.

Here's a new Smash assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Let's let Sakurai explain. "Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up."more
