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 Mwas 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?
