Is Skyward Sword the Dark Horse of 2011?

When it comes to GoTY 2011, nothing can be seen as anything but speculation. This aside, there seems to be a pretty popular trend when it comes to choices. Right now, the obvious top runners (Based on widespread opinion) are Batman: Arkham City, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Thats not to say that others arent in the running, but these three are the most popular). People seem to be counting out one of the most obvious choices, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Ill admit, I have been skeptical about its release, seeing as it is Nintendo, and they have made a couple of bad mistakes in the last few months, but this does look like it is going to be different. Skyward Sword could very easily come from behind and scoop up the prizes right from the competition.

EDGE has given it a PERFECT 10/10, PREFERRING it over Uncharted 3 Drakes Deception, Dark Souls and Batman AC and giving them lower scores of 9/10. ONM UK has already given it their HIGHEST EVER SCORE and called it the PINNACLE of the TLoZ franchise and motion gaming itself.

What does all this mean?

Calling Skyward Sword JUST goty would be a huge understatement.

Skyrim, BAtman and Uncharted are the most popular because the publishers are saying everything about the game to get it hyped. while Nintendo is not doing it, they release a new trailer once a week and stay secretive about it and they are staying out of the spotlight.

Everyday we got new info on hyped games while Zelda we got it once in a while.

SMG had the same marketing strategy and won so much GOTY awards

Skyward sword is 100 hours+ long Unchartered is 4 hours long Sony are behind the times they concentrate so much on graphics that there games either suffer a bad framerate lots of glitches or way to short when Nintendo go to town on WiiU wow there 1st party games like Zelda/Metroid/Starfox/Eternal Darkness/F-Zero/MarioKart/Mari oWorld/will be outright superb and in Full HD 60fps+ wont have any competition off Sony/Microsoft or any other company as this Zelda game and the WiiU tech demo proves Nintendo have the more talented developers at hand.

Theres no way to tell until the game is released. However, I am expecting a lot.

Having been a fan of TLoZ since the first game, I have high hopes that this will continue to live up to the legacy that the franchise has created.
