New contender for game of the year – World of Goo

1 min read
If your thinking was anything like mine then your draft list for Game of the Year already has some big hitters on it like Gears 2, MGS4, Far Cry 2 etc or others like that on it.
It did not however have “The World of Goo” on it… though by the look of it it really should.
The World of Goo is a small physics games from 2DBoy that has taken the world by storm in the last couple of days, it has already reached an average Metacritic ranking of 97 and is well poised to be the top Wii game of the year.
I haven’t as yet played the game but reviews are coming in thick and fast and by all rights it looks like this game is going to hold steady in the mid 90’s for some time to come.
Isn’t it strange to think that Game of the Year could be fought out between LittleBigPlanet, Banjo and World of Goo… Talk about your family friendly year.
