A+ my pickled ring
Posted on Saturday, January 21 2012 @ 21:25:44 Eastern

Perfection? Doesn’t exist.

Nothing in this world is complete; much less a video game designed by one group of people for another. There will always be a complaint about some small thing that supposedly makes it flawed. The camera isn’t just so, the controls are screwed or the story is convoluted or threadbare. The action is too frenetic or gets bogged down.

So calling something perfect and flawless is retarded because as anyone with half a mind knows that flawless cannot be perfect.

Flawless 1. having no defects or faults, especially none that diminish the value of something

Perfect: 1. conforming absolutely to the description or definition of an ideal type

So which is it? Is it made perfect or does it become perfect? If the controls come easy and simply to one man and flabbergast the next is the defect with the game or the players? Who’s ideal are we making? Mine? Yours?

I would say that my A+ thus far is Skyrim. Seriously! What does this game not have in it? You can craft, thief, murder, maim, explore, enchant, marry, drink, kill dragons, visit ghosts, be a vampire hunter, be a vampire or werewolf or demon worshipper. Hell if you have a PC you can turn people into bunnies.

Sure it’s unfinished and sloppy in some parts but you can’t have everything and they are getting around to fixing it and making it better. Just like Morrowind and Oblivion before it; it comes broken now let’s fix it better.

I could wax nostalgic about LoZ and Mario. Perhaps talk about the endless hours spent in Kotor and name drop NWN but they would be lies and can’t hold a candle to what Skyrim has done to my expectations of future games.

There it is. Future. What’s coming next.

If someone came to you and told you that you would only be allowed 1 gaming console for 10 years and you had to choose one. Can you honestly say that you would choose a gray box Nintendo or Atari 2600 over a PS3 or XBOX?
