The final four months of this year are pretty packed when it comes to video game releases. I’m almost dreading figuring out what to spend my time with, and then having to cobble together a list of ten for the Best of Year with only a few months to prepare by trying all these games.
When I moved house and suddenly had more space to put my junk, I found myself revisiting my Wii U. Many would regard the Wii U as a failed console from Nintendo. Especially in comparison to the staggering success of both the Wii and the Switch either side of it.
Personally, I look fondly at the Wii U. Sure, it only had about 15 games worth owning on it, which is pretty dire for the entire run of a console. But those 15 game were totally amazing. Possibly the best being Super Mario 3D World.
I unashamedly admit that Borderlands 2 is one of my favourite games of all time, it’s in the top ten at the very least. It was a perfect game for a perfect time for me, near endlessly replayable with an absolute ton of content even before you take the substantial DLC into account. So why has my previous excitement for Borderlands 3 cooled so much since the reveal a few months back?
