Skyrim Vs. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

G4TV: As you probably know, our video game deathmatch for best game of 2011 is in full flower. We're down to the final four, and we need to you to vote to help us decide which games will fight it out in the ultimate showdown.

To try and sway your opinion, G4TV social media coordinator and Defender of Hyrule, Antonio Hernandez and I have destroyed our friendship over whether Skyward Sword is a better game than Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Read on to see how the two of us nerds duke it out in a battle of epic proportions.

The story is too old to be commented.

Zelda`s magic is incomparable. betsheda can only dream of making an artful game like Skyward Sword. Of course, most of the stiff, boring and mechanic americans won`t agree.

I'll be honest & say I haven't played a Zelda game since the original Link on the NES, so I can't comment on your first point. I completely disagree with your second point though. I'm wondering if you've actually played Skyrim yourself, or if your Zelda-love is clouding your intellect.

I guess us stiff, boring, mechanic Canadians don't agree with you either.

Having enjoyed the remarkable looking Skyrim for a fair ammount of time now, and not having seen Skyward Sword in action personally yet, i'd have to definitely say that Zelda will likely deliver a more magical and charming experience

Skyrim impresses upon you that it's an excellent achievement, one that is gloriously filled with stuff to do and find. It's packed with more besides, but that's where it ends. Skyrim doesn't feel magical in a believable way like how the best Zelda games can. It's easy to be swayed by the sheer amount of something in a game like how i guess some people clearly gush over Skyrim, but it feels essentially just like a load of stats with some sort of attempt to wrap a game around it. It's a technically marvelous world though i will say

Skyrim did exceed my expectations in terms of how lush that world actually is but it does lack the soul of a Zelda game
