Some people don’t want a real cat. They want a spherical hairball with a tail. They want a Qoobo.
Between Oblivion, Morrowind, and Skyrim (and I’m currently poking around in Daggerfall), the Elder Scrolls series easily ranks at the top of my most played video games of all time. Just under that? Probably a weird tie between Final Fantasy and Unreal Tournament. I have eclectic tastes.
Unfortunately, these days I’m feeling a bit wary of the next Elder Scrolls.
So far, America is batting about .500 with our Godzilla movies.
1998’s Godzilla starring Matthew Broderick was a monstrous swing and miss, few will deny that. 2014’s attempt fared much better, though I’ll still say I found it pretty dry.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters looks to mix things up in a big way, and yet I still have this tepid feeling about how Godzilla is handled by the West. Something’s missing.
