E3 2010: Game of the Show

E3 2010’s not even over yet, but I’ve already decided on my game of the show. I’ve chosen this game because even after just two days, E3’s started getting to me. All the noise, all the showing off, all the hype, all the promises, all the speculation, debate and fuss – it’s doing my head in a bit.

What I really need right now is to retreat to a simpler, more carefree place in my soul. I need to play Crashy Crash.

Crashy Crash is essentially a clone of the Saucer Sumo mini-game in Thrillville (which is probably a clone of something else anyway) made using LittleBigPlanet’s creation tools, and nothing more. But that, quite frankly, is good enough for me.

I don’t care if it supports motion control or 3D, or whether or not it proves that the PS3 has ‘won’ E3, or the console war, or any other kind of arbitrary victory. I don’t care whether or not it’s revolutionary, whether it’s a shock or even a megaton bombshell. It just looks like the kind of pure, uncomplicated fun I could really use right now, plus it has a better name than any other game at E3. It’s concise, to-the-point, descriptive, funny – doesn’t have a number at the end or a colon in the middle and it doesn’t start with a lower-case letter. I mean honestly, Metal Gear Solid: Rising? That might as well be four words chosen at random. Like, if I just jump on a random word generator right now… here we go… Level Tutor Graduation: Supervising. I swear those were the first four words I got, and it actually makes more sense than Metal Gear Solid: Rising!

Anyway, I digress massively. The point is, my Game of the Show: Crashy Crash.

    …hmm. I’m looking forward to LittleBigPlanet 2…too, but not Crashy Crash. I could find something a little more engaging and fun on a free Flash game site. Not kidding.
