How Can Anyone Be Disappointed By Both Skyrim and Skyward Sword?

Kotaku - Some folks loved the latest Legend of Zelda game but weren't fond of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Others turned up their noses at Skyward Sword but embraced Bethesda's latest wholeheartedly. Somehow commenter Sloopydrew found himself disappointed with both games. In today's Speak Up on Kotaku we try to determine what sort of alien he is.

The story is too old to be commented.

Because they dont like fantasy games.

Or they're tired of the cliches and archetypes both games embrace wholeheartedly.

Or they had unrealistically high expectations.

Or they have an instinctive dislike for anything that's popular.

Really, there are quite a few possibilities.

Nothing against either game, but the statements mentioned above are quite true.

Maybe for people who have played 10 or more Zelda games and are getting tired of the same old shit.

Of course, referring to discerning people, not those unable to remove their rose-tinted nostalgia glasses.

As for Skyrim, well... maybe people want their atmosphere more consistent without little pokes to remind them of what they're doing. Glitches, buckets over heads for stealing, arrows to the knee from every guard and peasant don't really improve immersion.

because they are idiots. Zelda and Skyrim GOTY. Zelda Skyward Sword pretty much eclipsed everything that sony and ms had to offer in the exclusive department...what a coincidence nintendo does it again.

ShinMaster3540d ago

Didn't get anywhere near the same amount and strength of media coverage and attention as some of the biggest current gen(PS3,360) games. That's hardly eclipsing.
Quality-wise? For a Wii game yeah.

gillri3540d ago

indeed, played them both, loved them both,

shame about the all the quest bugs in Skyrim though, and the slow start in Zelda

If it wasnt for the Skyrim bugs that wold have been my GOTY. As it is Portal 2 and Skyward Sword were mine in the end

dedicatedtogamers3540d ago

I was disappointed in both. Dark Souls surpassed both. Sue me.

FEARprototype3540d ago

i like the 3 of them in their own way.
why do people like to be hated?

FinaLXiii3540d ago

i was disapointed with dark souls lol

BraveToaster3540d ago

I wasn't disappointed by Skyrim because I expected it to be Oblivion 1.2. I was right.

DeleteThisxx3540d ago

You clearly never played Oblivion OR Skyrim.

Megaman_nerd3540d ago

Sadly I have played both and I think the same. =/

RedDead3540d ago

YOU clearly never played Oblivion OR Skyrim.

DeleteThisxx3540d ago

Funny, I have achieved 100% in both Oblivion and Skyrim. Yet I'm the one who hasn't played either of them. Please, elaborate on Oblivion 1.2. The perk/leveling system is entirely different, a completely revamped magic system, NPC's feel alive in their surroundings, new story, enhanced gameplay, randomly generated quests, dragons, shouts, an all around brand new experience.

Sure, the basic formula is still the same but there's no way you can say with a straight face that this is "oblivion 1.2" Unless you're a blatant troll who didn't progress passed the first quest.

I think Skyrim is not much like Oblivion. Oblivion was very recycled and repetative. It was good, but not as good as Skyrim which took a more modern Bethesda approach as they use a lot of tools they learned from Fallout.

Play Oblivion again, maybe then you will seen the difference, when I played Skyrim I also thought that it was about the same as Oblivion till I played Oblivion again. Then you see the leap.

BraveToaster3540d ago

You're right, I exaggerated a bit. It's more like Oblivion 2.0. What Oblivion was supposed to be.

Captain Qwark 93540d ago
