Alanar's very old Games of the Year 2007 - This is a 2007 game... For Europe


Some of us think that Zelda: Twilight Princess was an awesome game. I'm one of these people. But this year, I had the chance to experience a better game than this. And even though it may be old for some people, this game is on my list at spot numer 2. And the game is...


I know that the American release of this game was in 2006. But in Europe it has been released this year, so for me it is one of the best games of 2007. The second best, to be precisely. You know, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was my Game of the Year 2006 but Ōkami overall better than Nintendos game with the elfish boy in a green tunic. The graphics are prettier, the music is better and the story is superior to Twilight Princess. If you ask me, this game is even better than the Zelda fan favourite Ocarina of Time. Clover Studios took the well known formula and improved it.
What I really like about this game is how the dungeons fit in the world of Ōkami. Without looking at the map I sometimes barely noticed that I was in a dungeon. And my favourite part is the cut scene after you vitalized a guardian sapling. Also, the characters (especially Issun and Amaterasu) are great. Issun is one of my favourite sidekicks I ever met in a video game.
I hope that the Wii version will live up to the greatness that is Ōkami. It would be very sad to see a great game ruined by a bad port...

As this list concludes we finally get to my personal game of the year. Check back tomorrow to see which game impressed me the most this year.


Other personal favourites of this year:
Number 5: Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
Number 4: Assassin's Creed
Number 3: Super Mario Galaxy

About Alanarone of us since 10:09 AM on 07.24.2007

Since the Destructoid Random Title found it out already, I can admit it: I'm a Rabbid. So there will be some random DAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! in my posts. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

My hideout is in Germany. Also, my English isn't perfect. So if you have problems to read my texts, tell me about it. I try to explain what I was trying to write then.

As you can imagine, one of my favourite games is "Rayman Raving Rabbids". I really like wacky videogames. DAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! Give me some "Armed & Dangerous", "You don't know Jack", "Rayman Raving Rabbids" or "Monkey Island" and I'm happy. Also, I like "Guild Wars".
